I hope somebody can help my boyfriend and I get past the brick wall we have hit. We have the names of his great-grand father. It was Reuben Sullivan and he was married to Emeline. They had 2 boys, Edgar (1862) and Hiram (1864). The 1871 census states that Reuben was 49 years old and his wife was 41. In the 1881 Reuben is 50 years old and a widower. It also states that he was born in America and the boys in Quebec. They were methodist. It would be a great help if somebody knew were Reuben was born and what his wifes maiden name was.
