Classification: Query
Surnames: Aikens, Nash, Devereaux, Perry
I am a descendant of Elizabeth through her daughter, Elizabeth's (B.1777 – d.1814) marriage in Guysborough, Nova Scotia, Canada to John Nash, (1778 – 1814) who I believe was born in Ireland. They had a daughter named Ellen (1800 – 1860) who married John Devereaux (1790 – 1850)who immigrated from County Wexford.

I would appreciate any help in finding mentions of Elizabeth Perry Aikens and Samuel. Are they in Carleton's Loyalist index to the names of Loyalists and their associates contained in the British headquarters papers, New York City, 1774-1783? I don't know how to access it. Also, since they apparently were both born in Pennsylvania, how did they end up in New York in 1777?

Also do transcripts of gravestones in Guysborough?
Thank you so much.
