My great grandfather was Ora Mahar Burgess, who is on the 1871 census for Lakeville, Cornwallis Township, but not with his parents. He always said his parents were Edwin Burgess and Hannah Mahar. The only Hannah I found was the daughter of Richard Mahar and Mary Dukeshire, who was the daughter of Mary White Dukeshire.

My uncle's YDNA shows that we are from Thomas Burgess of Barnstable MA, who was the progenitor of all the Burgesses in Kings County, Nova Scotia. So I am guessing Ora gave us the correct names of his parents, but so far I can find no paper trail that links them to him.

Ora also said he was born in Woodville, Kings County.

By 1881 Ora is in Minnesota/Wisconsin and never returned to NS.
