I am researching my sister-in-law's family. Not much is known. The family story is the family escaped France, maybe as Huguenots, and went to Ireland. After Ireland the family settled in Nova Scotia.
The information I have is a James Au Coin had a son Thomas b.1909 in Nova Scotia, Canada. Thomas married Margaret DeLaury (spelling unknown). The family moved to Weymouth, MA around the time of the Depression, before 1936.
Margaret was born in the United States while her parents were on vacation from Canada.
Does anyone recognize this family? Are they part of the Au Coins mentioned by everyone else for Nova Scotia? Could the family history be wrong?
