I know nothing of those records except what I found by googling.
From that, also, it may be that your Morehouse may be from England rather than Ireland. :-\

it wouldn't really matter where they are from, i'm at a total loss.

I'm just trying to figure out which branch of the Morehouse Family moved to Nova Scotia. All I have are some names. Abigail, Isaac, John and Samuel. I know Abigail is the wife but not sure witch of the guys is the Father son and brother, I think John may be her son.

From Fairfield United States to Gullivers Cove, Digby, Nova Scotia. some time shortly before or after the end of the revolutionary war.

You did initially write that ‘the only information I have on him was that he was originally from Ireland’ and if you post that- that is where people would try to look.

I have just searched those names and some ancestry tree pages show. I don’t know how reliable they are or not.

Does this fit with your timeline?
Abigail Johnson 1796 - 1876  Waterford, Digby, NS
Isaac Morehouse spouse son of John Morehouse (no dates)
Children Abigail and Hannah

1838 census here - William, James and Isaac Morehouse named - shows several children but no names
https://novascotia.ca/archives/census/returns1838.asp?ID=16727

I am sure you have already found these references
https://novascotia.ca/archives/search/?q=Morehouse

I will ask a moderator if your search should be moved to a more appropriate forum.

At this point in time the specific dates aren't as important. This was a verbal com I had with my 90+ year great Aunt Doris after travelling to the east coast for my Grandfather's burial at sea. She told me her side of the family history and I found it interesting so i'm just trying to substantiate it.

I'm just trying to find the concrete link from Fairfield to Nova Scotia at this point in time.

Hopefully someone on this new board may be able to give advice.

Good luck

https://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/loyalists/loyalists-ward-chipman/Pages/list.aspx?Surname=Moorehouse&

Or simple google UEL Nova Scotia for more references

Morehouse/Moorehouse will be interchangeable.
