Nicholas was born 1889 to James Philpitt and Mary (?), married 1905 to Ellen M. (Conrad) and settled in Lahave area NS. Was born in Newfoundland, however family name as spelled is not easily found in archives/census... We believe may have been south coast Newfoundland origin, possibly Philpot(t), Filpit(t), Filpot(t), etc. Any information on his parents/family would be appreciated. Thank you.
