My Mary J Gates is from Nova Scotia, moved to Maine, then settled and passed away in Massachusetts. So the one you mentioned is not my Mary J Gates. I do not know if she had any siblings, because I can not find her information before she was married. I believe her father's name was either John, David, or John David Gates and her mother may have been Elizabeth Clark. (This is an avenue I am hoping for some help on.) I am trying to find someone who can help me locate her information from Nova Scotia, and Maine, or has any information that way. Let me know if you find anyone matching this description with your further research.
Thank You for your help and your reply.
