William McAllister was born about 1820 in Ireland. Came to NB in 1837 and lived in Shepody, Hopewell Parish, Albert County. Married a Mary McCarron on 17 Nov 1848 in Saint John, she was born about 1825.

Luke McAllister was born about 1811 in Ireland. Died after 1900. He married a Ann Flannigan in Ireland, she was born about 1815. They came to NB in 1832. They lived in Hopewell Parish, Albert County.

William and Luke lived next door to each other. Theres a possibility that they can be related. There is a land request and grant in Luke's name but not in William's name. If there is anyone researching either one of these families or can help find out some information on them please contact me, Bill Palmer uofm12001@yahoo.com Thank you.

Albert, I have no idea if this will help you, but John McAllister ,b. Ireland, lived in Hopewell area. Have not been able to nail down his actual BD, but he married Catherinie McCarron in Hopewell Parish on 3/Jan/1854. Catherine's parents were John McCarron and Mary (McShary) McCarron of Harvey. Catherine was born 13/Jul/1832. Accrdg to the information I have the McCarrons were a large family and lived in Harvey and also around Joggins Ragged Reef. It says in Cumberland County, polling dist 5 1861 there were nine females and four males in one of their households.Mary McCarron would have been 7 yrs older than Catherine and Mary married 6 yrs before Catherine. perhaps they were related but I have no knowledge to share at this point other than this. Hope it gives you some clues. I am tracing the McAllister relationship of John Samuel ,but only recently got the info on the New Brunswick/Nova Scotia relationship.

Surnames: McAllister/McCarron
Bill, I'm not sure if your question was of me or Albert. My great great grandfather John Samuel McAllister married Catherine, a daughter of John and Mary (McShary) McCarron. They moved to the US after having two or three children. John and Catherine had had Charles McAllister in 1854 in that area and Elizabeth Ann in 1856 and possibly James Walter but I"ve no info on James Walter. What I've not been able to find is any information on when John Samuel came to New Brunswick/Nova Scotia from Ireland or if his family came as well. No records so far to connect John S. McAllister to anyone in the Hopewell or Joggins area for sure.
