This post is many years old now. Which of Walter's children were you wanting information on?

Walter and his wife Christianna immigrated to Pictou on the Ship Hector with their daughter Elizabeth in 1773. He had more children in Nova Scotia, most of their ancestors are still between Pictou, Merigomish and Cape Breton Island.

If you're still interested in more detail let me know, or if you know which child of his you're interested in.

Thanks!
