Knox Researchers - Northfield Parish?

Hi,

Just wondering if there are any published info (family history/genealogy etc) on the Knox line that was in the Northfield Parish area. I am just starting to research the Thompson line and have come across several instances of them marrying into the Knox line.

Regards,
Jerry

I am a decendent of Charles and Eleanor Allen Knox. I know that Charles father was John Knox and is burried in Gagetown but who was John's father? I have seen material that he came to NS from Boxfield, Mass. but I am not able to verify this or who his father was. Any information would be appreciated.

John Knox

Stephen and Annie Thompson are my Great Grandparents on my fathers side. Their daughter Mary Olive is my fathers mother. I too have struggled to find relevant information. What information I have found can be found in my ancestry.ca tree "lmhiggins". Of particular interest to me is to find the parents of Stephen Thompson (born in Coal Creek in 1850). Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Sincerely,
LM Higgins

Hi,

Just doing this from memory.....in the 1861 census (not sure about the 1871 census for Queens County), isn't Stephen living with his parents, John and Margaret (nee Harper) Thompson? I can't remember if Stephen's headstone in the Redbank Cemetery in Chipman is located with all the other Thompsons (probably is).

I do believe that Stephen is buried in Redbank cemetery. However, I have yet to find any concrete evidence as to who Stephens parents are. There may have been another Stephen Thompson with a wife Ann in the area. The listed children in one 1881 census raises a flag in my opinion. If you have any additional information that might prove who the parents are I would love to see it. That's the problem with that generation. Record keeping apparently wasn't that important. The list of children I have in my tree is different than those listed in my brothers research. So there are a lot of grey areas that still need to be clarified. Any help would be appreciated.
