Looking for information on Margaret and John Remsen.I thought John was from Holland but have found that both John and Margaret are from Nova Scotia.Does anyone know how I would find out where in Nova Scotia they where from?Also I have found them on the census here in the US for both the 1870 and 1880 with John being Nehemiah.It is not until the 1900 one that he goes by John.Is Nehemiah John in another country?
This is what I have for them so far after much searching.
John (Nehemiah)born abt. 1843 in Nova Scotia Margarie or Margaret born abt. 1848 in Nova Scotia
They were married about 1868 in Nova Scotia and had two children:
Jennie born in Nova Scotia I believe about 1869 Albert I. born abt. 1876 in Massachusetts
They are recorded as coming to the US in 1870 and in the 1900 census John is recorded as Naturalized.They live in Massachusetts the rest of their lives.John died somewhere between 1910 and 1920 and Margaret sometime after 1920.
