Of John and Sarah's five children, Mary is the only one that I don't have much information on. She was married twice. First to William Raynard on July 31, 1808. Second to a Doane. Mary's sister, Cornielia (aka Catherine) married Job Raynard. William and Job were most certainly closely related, but to what degree is unclear. During the Revolutionary War, Job was a member of the King's German Legion, even though he himself was an Englishman. All of the Raynards in South West Nova Scotia descend from Job.
When I was a youngster, I attended Sunday School at the Old Meeting House in Gavelton.
