Re: MacNider - Hanna(h) - Quebec city - 1765 to 1840
I am a descendant of John McNider and the Hanna name looked familiar...My notes make a reference to Mary Macnider, daughter of John and Mary Hanna and grand-daughter or Mathiew Macnider (1740-1810) of Kilmarnock, Scotland(La Parentèle' Vol.3, No. 4, Dec 1993, p. 9).
Yet another source, L'Estuaire Généalogique, No.64, Déc.1997, has her mother as Angelica Stuart, daughter of Murdoch Stuart and Angélique Cartier.
My notes have Mary born around 1787 in Scotland.She was 64 years old in the 1851 (canadian) census and died 23 Apr 1855 at St.Jean-sur-Richelieu, Québec.
