I am also interested in the RYAN family.
I have an Esther RYAN, who married ca 1836 to Maximin MELANSON. They were listed in 1838 Census "Township of Digby"; 1861 & 1871 census at "St Mary's Bay", later "Plympton". According to census Esther was born ca 1812-13, Baptist, English (as opposed to French).
I note that Charles, John, & William RYAN were all listed in Marshall Town (head of St Mary's Bay), in Hutchinson's 1866/7 directory.
I would like to find out Esther's parents.
