Bill, I'm not sure if your question was of me or Albert. My great great grandfather John Samuel McAllister married Catherine, a daughter of John and Mary (McShary) McCarron. They moved to the US after having two or three children. John and Catherine had had Charles McAllister in 1854 in that area and Elizabeth Ann in 1856 and possibly James Walter but I"ve no info on James Walter. What I've not been able to find is any information on when John Samuel came to New Brunswick/Nova Scotia from Ireland or if his family came as well. No records so far to connect John S. McAllister to anyone in the Hopewell or Joggins area for sure.
