George Sutherland, b. 1793 Scotland, d. 1863, Weldford, Kent, NB, Canada
« on: Wednesday 03 January 18 02:53 GMT (UK) »
George Sutherland was born in (????) Scotland, c 1793, moved to Canada via unknown means, died 24 Nov 1863 in Weldford, Kent, NB and was buried in Weldford.  I don't have his wife's name, but he is believed to have had at least two children, James Sutherland, b. circa 1821 in Main River, Kent, NB, and possibly Samuel Kent Sutherland, b. circa Aug 1842, Kent, NB.

Please note the 20+ year difference between ages for James and Samuel. This could imply an error in the information I have, or it could indicate two marriages for George.  The 1861 census has George living with his son, James in Weldford.

Any information on George Sutherland in Weldford, Kent, NB will be very helpful.  Thank you.

Sandra, Trish,

Thanks for responding.  Yes, this is an old inquiry that I have never successfully resolved.  In the recent years I've been adding several thousand new ancestors on other branches, and am just now returning and trying to find George.  I've even considered having DNA testing done to try and follow his path back to Scotland.  I'm sure he lived, but his history is still a mystery.

As a side note, I also found a land petition dated July 14, 1825 for a George Sutherland, age 36, in York County, NB.  Because of the age difference (b. ca 1789), and because of the York County location, I have not included this find in my analysis. 

Best regards,

John Sutherland

Sandra,

Thank you.  I've removed Samuel from my tree.  I haven't figured out how, if in any way, I am connected to the Sutherlands in Nova Scotia.  There may be a connection, as the clan is not a very large clan, but that specific connection is still unknown.

Best regards,

John
