Searching for proof of birth of my Great Grandfather
Edward Stephen Brown, born Jan.24/1859 Grand Falls, N.B.

He was married to Augusta J. McCallom & Carrie Lloyd both from N.B.
I would like to find out if he was really born in Grand Falls,N.B.
he lived in the Carleton Cty.area & also Maine late 1800's but I find nothing on him in Maine. He moved to Ontario in 1910
Thanks for your help.

Thank you Susan for the info. I am still confused to the 1881 census for Brighton, the Edward there do you think is Augusta husband or brother?
Can you tell me when those census were taken (month) as that would give me a clue to whether he was a Brown or McCollum. If it was after their marriage then he was living in that household.
The info I have is that Augusta McCallom father was Guy McCallom...Thank so much for your help much appreciated.

The Edward in the 1881 Brighton census is Augusta's brother, Edward McCollum.

I assumed this was your Augusta since it was the only Augusta McCollum I could find in Brighton parish in 1881 -- which is where the marriage record said she was living at the time of her marriage to Edward Brown.

I wonder who the James McCollum is who witnessed the wedding.

Hi! Susuan.
Yes, Augusta was my Great Grandmother. She was the daughter of Guy McCallum & Martha Brown..after she married Edward Stepehn Brown I can not find anywhere they lived in their own household in N.B.
Augusta died in 1887...they had two children Harry & Bessie Brown who were then raised by Mr. Guy McCallum, but then I have no trace of Edward until he married Carrie Lloyd.
Edward's date of birth from family members was Jan.24/1859
but on the 1901 census for Simonds it says Oct.24/1863 this is probably why I can not find his proof of birth in N.B. I have contacted the Fisher Library and PANB archives but nothing on him.
The Edward that witnessed the marriage of Augusta, I would think was her brother, his real name was James Edward McCallum, born June 27/1857, & I hear he used Edward for his name.
Thanks again....Glenda
