Re: Layden Family -- Sligo to New Brunswick, Canada, to Boston & Milwaukee
Can you tell me where I can find your cousin's book about the settlers of Mechanic's Settlement, New Brunswick? If you have access to a copy, could you check to see if my ancestors are in her book:
b 1798 Ireland
d 1872 Mechanic's Settlement
his wife Mary (Long)
b 1804 Ireland
d 1888 Mechanis's Settlement
they married NB and had 2 children that I am aware of
(1) Ann Stevenson b 1825 d 1904- who married Alexander Moore -- both are buried in Mechanic's Settlement
(2) Andrew Stevenson - who married Barsheba Collings
I don't know if Richard and Ann (Long) Stevenson lived their adult lives in Mechanic's Settlement or came there after or at the time their daughter Ann married Alexander Moore.
Any info you find in your cousin's book would be greatly appreciated. You can email the info if you would rather not post this family info on your Layden family board.
I really appreciate anything you can find in your book on Stevenson, Long, Collings, or Moore families. Thank you, Benita
