James and Mary Nesbit Nesbeth
« on: Monday 12 October 20 05:01 BST (UK) »
Looking for James and Mary Nesbit arrived in New Brunswick Canada, (Westfield Kings) 1840 they came from Donegal.  I can trace them up until 1871 both aged 87.
After that I loose them. living in a household with son Oliver and family. :)

Are you looking for deaths after 1871, or information on them in Ireland before 1840?

How strange - no age at death.  far more likely to be the son's wife:

Is Nesbit a fairly common surname in New Brunswick?

Have you found burial permits before 1889?  If not, helps explain why they are not showing anywhere.

thank you
there are three deaths in the site you sent me.

Page 1 of 1
Showing 1 to 3 of 3 records found
NISBETT, Mary  1890   Digital image of original record is available.
Vital Statistics from Government Records
Provincial Returns of Deaths
NISBETT, Mary  1892   Digital image of original record is available.
Vital Statistics from Government Records
Index to County Birth Registers
I am guessing the wife of James is the first one.
am I able to find the grave?

If you have any information on the couple in Ireland, I would be very grateful.
I know there was a daughter Margaret birth ? Joseph birth ? Oliver birth 1822, and possibly another one, of which I am yet to find.
no sign if James?

I now have found James by working around the site. but I have a big question on this and it's the age.  how could he be 61, his last age in 1871 was 87, and that would have been about right.
Name   NISBETT, JAMES
Age   61
Date   1898-04-29
Birth Place   SAINT JOHN
County   Saint John
Volume   8
Number   250
Microfilm   F20744

I would think that was a son or grandson of the James and Mary, or someone totally unrelated if that is the only information you have got for him.

I do not have any specific information on him in Ireland, I was just unclear as to what you wanted.
