I'm looking for any information
related to David Newton Colwell. I know he was born in Hillsborough around the year 1881. The only information I have regarding
his parents is that their names were James and Susan. He moved to Springhill, Nova Scotia sometime before 1910, which is the
year he married Margaret Hamilton Fraser, born in Edinburgh, Scotland around 1885. They had a son named James Cecil Colwell
in 1915. I'm not sure if they had any other children. He was also a miner. Any info is appreciated; my email is firstname.lastname@example.org, thanks. Added Feb. 20, 2010
COLWELL- I am looking for information on George W. Colwell and his wife Ellen Jane. Their son James William, my Grandfather, was
born in Canada on 2/19/1876 but I am not
sure that it was in Albert County. James' marriage certificate lists Elgin as the city where his father George was born. George's occupation is listed as a Tanner. By the time
that James married, he was living in Rib Lake, WI,
USA. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks, Joan Colwell Stevenson

CANNON. I am in search of information on the Cannon / Canning surname in Albert County. I have a good start but am lacking in links to Charles Cannon/Canning who came to
this area of New Brunswick from Falmouth, Nova Scotia about 1793 to start the surname here. Who did he marry? Did he have issue? Most of
this surname have probably moved on to the larger centers of Moncton etc., but there are probably some in Albert County
yet. I would appreciate any help you have to offer.

CALHOUNS. I would, however, be happy to offer assistance to any visitors to the web site who might be interested
in the Calhouns of Albert County. Thomas Calhoun was born 1735 in Chester County, Pennsylvania, the son of John Cohoon, an immigrant from County Donegal, Ireland about 1714.
Thomas Calhoun was a licensed Indian Trader on the western
frontier in 1760 with a trading post near Tuscarawas in present day Ohio. He was closely associated with Fort Pitt and the Army officers who served in that region.
In 1765, Thomas went to Cumberland County, Nova Scotia to manage a large land grant along the south
bank of the Petitcodiac River in what is now Albert County, New Brunswick. He married Rachael Peck, daughter of Abiel Peck there in 1768. Thomas
and Rachael are the progenitors of hundreds of Calhoun descendants, some of whom still reside in Albert and Westmorland Counties.
In 1772, Thomas, along with one of
his brothers, one of his wife's brothers, and a couple others were drowned while loading a boat with grindstones from Grindstone Island near the mouth of the Shepody River. Thomas is buried in Riverside Cemetery, just north of Riverside-Albert within view
of Grindstone Island.
I wrote a book about the Ancestors and Descendants of Thomas Calhoun
in 1994 and have continued to compile information about this fascinating family.
I would be happy to offer assistance
to anyone researching this Calhoun family.

COOK. Requesting any information
or suggestions re: William H. Cook 1844 - 1919 born and buried in Moncton according
to death record I obtained from August ME. His father is listed as Alexander Cook - mother M. Durrrr (Dunn -maybe) both from England.
Date of Burial August 14, 1919. Date of Death Aug. 12, 1919 in Caribou, Maine. My great grandfather
was a William H. Cook married (I think) to Margaret Seeley in Easton, Maine. I found
an 1880 Census which listed both of them in Easton along with children. My great
grandmother is buried in Fort Fairfield, Maine - Margaret
Seeley Cook. My Mom said William H. was buried next to his first wife (she thought he was born and buried in Nova
Scotia). I have made two trips to Maine (Easton &
Fort Fairfield) and checked all town records available.
Thanks for any help.
