    Matthews/Mathews/Mathis:   Pointe Wolfe, Albert, New Brunswick.

    I am researching the parents and origins of James Mathews and his brother John. James was my GG Grandfather. 
    In the 1851 Census, James States he was born " here."  In a petition for land, John in 1839 states he was from Harvey.  James in an 1844 Petition states he was from Harvey. James was born in 1806 and died in Pointe Wolfe 1885.  John was born in 1802 and died in 1851.  James married Elizabeth McFarland (e ) and John married Martha Grant.
    I have no documentation on either marriage nor any documentation on their parents - and that is my goal.

    Thanks - Phil Matthews

    McALONEY I am doing research on any and all by the name of McAlonan, McAloney or similar spellings.  The name had various spellings in the early records, but most seemed to end up with the name McAloney.  They appear to have entered at St. John Port from Ireland and made their way thru New Brunswick to Nova Scotia.  Apparently there is a brook in Fundy National Park by the name of McAloney and some by that name remained in the area. Would appreciate receiving any information on these families. My thanks,
