Looking for parents of John Garvin who was b. Ireland abt 1836, m. Susanna Sheffroth/Sheffrow in Sussex abt 1874 and died in Saint John or Hampton, NB.
He had four children:
Georgie m. William John Mahoney
Alice Jane m. Leslie Singer
Francis Joseph married Agnes McDonell
McAlpine's has a Susan Garvin, wid of John, in 1897-98 but lists John Girvin with Mrs. Given and Frank Girvan and William H. Girvin in 1900. John last appears in the 1891 census with his family, but there does appear a John Garvin in 1911 in Hampton. Have not found a death record yet.
John's son Francis had a son James Alexander. Not sure if there's a connection to the Alexander Girvin who farmed and was a merchant at varous times in the area (Kingston, Sussex and Saint JOhn) at that same time.
