Surnames: McDougall/MacDougal
The McDougall I am looking for is Catherine McDougall, born about 1840. She married a Joseph McGillivray. I know at one time they lived in Egmont Bay, PEI because I found burial and Bap. records for some of the children. Their children would be Annie/Anne, Isbelle, Mary Ann, Catherine or Caroline, Sanctimus Wilfred. The children were born between 1863-1890. There may be more children and if so, I don't know of them. Annie was my g-grandmother.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. My email addy is marliese61@yahoo.com

Oops, I gave you the McDougall side of the family. The Grants I am looking for are Nelson, son Ervin born 1888. Nelson married a McMillian I think and I am guessing Nelson was born around 1840's. I know Ervin L. Grant was born in East Gore Novia Scotia. I have no idea where East Gore is and have looked at the Hants county web site hoping that was the area but I am not sure. Is East Gore a town, or county of NS?

Found the connection. Hope this helps. East Gore and West Gore and Gore are very small towns in Hants County.

OMG!! that is them.... Wonderful!!!! Ok, you have made my day.... Ervin L. Grant and his wife Vera Arthur were my grandparents :-) My mother will be so very happy. I am doing this for her. Her parents both died by the time she was 12.
Ok, another question.... Have you ever heard of a Grant cemetery? My mother thought she had heard when she was little that there was a Grant cemetery where her family was buried. We assume it is in NS. It would be a very old cemetery.

Again, THANK YOU :-)

Would you happen to know anything more about Sarah Blois and Andrew Corbett?

I find who I believe is them on the 1880 Census in Maine as follows:

1. Andrew Corbett, Head, age 29, Music Teacher, Born Scotland, Father born Ireland, Mother born Scotland
2. Sarah Corbett, Wife, age 28, Keeping House, Born Nova Scotia, Father born Nova Scotia, Mother born Nova Scotia
3. Winfield Corbett, Son, age 6, Born Massachusetts, Father Born Scotland, Mother Born, Nova Scotia

I am checking out a hunch on my great-grandfather which may turn out to be a bit of a stretch, but I am getting desperate. Any light you could shed would be helpful. Please email me & I can send you more details. Thanks in advance.
