I am looking for information on my ggg-grandparents, Richard Shoebridge and Eliza McCauley, and their family, who lived in New Brunswick, Canada between 1830 and 1881. I think they are the first Shoebridge family to arrive in Canada. I have given a tentative family structure below, much of which is based on circumstantial evidence.
