I noticed that you have posted several messages concerning New Brunswick families as was wondering if you might be interested in a Journal written in Sept/Oct 1825 by Massachusetts Land Agent George Coffin who did a census/survey of the Upper St John/Madawaska settlements. Very detailed and lots of names.
The Journal also made note of the forest fire (they were traveling to Frederickton when it started) that would later be called The Miramachi Fire. It destroyed almost
6,000 acres of prime NB timberlands, destroyed at least 3 settlements, killed hundreds, left thousands homeless and burned Frederickton- resulting in NB needing to take timber from the District of Maine Patent to recover from the disaster when London refused to send aid to Lt Gov Douglass.
