For many years our family has always thought that Howard Douglas wife Mary surname was Dixon we have finally learned after so many years her surname was Nixon.

Howard Douglas & Mary Nixon were married in Charlotte County New Brunswick on October, 14th, 1846 the witnesses were Samuel Curry & Galbraith ( Douglas )
Howard Douglas was from ST.Andrews parish New Brunswick, Mary Nixon was from ST.David parish New Brunswick.
Am so happy finally found there marriage date now if we could just find the marriage date for their daughter Sarah Jane Douglas born 1852, married James Sherman born 1844, we have much information on the children of Sarah Jane Douglas & James Sherman but we have no marriage date or place of marriage for Sarah and James.

Thank you all in advance

Heidi

Please leave the information you have on James' and Sarah Jane's children - year of birth/baptism and location will help to narrow down a marriage date.

James Sherman married with 3 children in 1881 census- oldest age 7 so married a bit before 1874 perhaps-

Hiya - someone's  tree for Laura Belle - gives exact birth date

https://gw.geneanet.org/fergy1943?n=douglas&oc=&p=laura+belle

she also has this - maybe you could contact her and let her know Howards wifes surname - she doesn't have it - but it looks very much like this lady is descended from Laura Belle Douglas / Adam Dinsmore / Densmore line

hope it helps  xx
