I have found a couple in Digby Co. in the 1881 Census that fits your description of names and their Marriage record is in NS Vital Stats (on Line) for 1876. They have a daughter Maggie, age 3 but also a daughter Ida who ends up in Mass. USA
and a son Hilarion. I cannot find this family in the 1891 Census to verify if Elizabeth is with them..
My question is, do you know if they had a dau. Ida?
Any other info??
