I am searching for information about Henry and Martin Shier who came to Nova Scotia about 1783 from New York. They had a brother Julius Shier who remained in New York.Henry Shier had 6 children-Eldest son Martin, Margaret,Henry,Ann,Hannah and youngest daughter Elizabeth. This was the order they were mentioned in the will of Henry Shier(on record at N.S. Archives), so I am guessing that this is their birth order! Ann (my ancestor) was born in 1770, so Henry may have been born in 1768.I am starting to research passenger lists to see if I can find how they came to Nova Scotia.
