Looking for information about Bernard and Elizabeth Scribner and their daughters Mrs James Price and Mrs A. Rouke. I believe that Mrs James Price is Ruby Irene (McDevitt) Price.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Elizabeth's parents were William and Charlotte (Parin) Scribner. Elizabeth also had a sister Maria (Parin) Beckingham. When her husband George Beckingham died she remarried Samuel Watson.
I would also like any information about William and Charlotte Scribner.
Thanks, Jennifer Turner
