I am currently trying to find information on an ancestor of mine. Her name is Mary J Gates. She was born in Nova Scotia CANADA bet. 1862-1863, moved to Maine USA, and then married in Massachusetts USA where she remained for the rest of her life. Spouse is John W Geddes, children include: Lillian, Alice, Minnie, Mildred, and Philip. Looking for any relatives or ancestors who might have information on her and her parents. (Her mother's name is Elizabeth Clark, her father is either John, David Gates, or a variation of the two names.)

I have found a Mary J.Gates born in NS, she says in 1853, in the USA 1880 Census, in Rochelle, Ogle, Illinois.
I haven't been able to find her parents in any of the local websites. Did Mary have any brothers or sisters??
Hope this info is of some help..

My Mary J Gates is from Nova Scotia, moved to Maine, then settled and passed away in Massachusetts. So the one you mentioned is not my Mary J Gates. I do not know if she had any siblings, because I can not find her information before she was married. I believe her father's name was either John, David, or John David Gates and her mother may have been Elizabeth Clark. (This is an avenue I am hoping for some help on.) I am trying to find someone who can help me locate her information from Nova Scotia, and Maine, or has any information that way. Let me know if you find anyone matching this description with your further research.
Thank You for your help and your reply.
