Hi Sandra: This is my understanding: Joseph Hatfield - Jane thibault - father of Stephen born in Digby, father of Ira who married Anne Dumphy (my great-grandmother). Joseph is the son of Samuel (anselem) Hatfield and Marie Muise. Stephen must have left Digby when he was about 22 as he married Abigail when he was 23 in Parrsboro, he was married three times. They are of African decent as Sam was a slave who was freed in Digby. His master was a Dugas. Sam was from NY his parent are Sam and Ann. Still working on finding that information.
This is the only connection I can find for Stephen with the parent Joseph and Jane.
