Miramichi (N.B.) Help Needed For British Family Historian | Morrow/Pallen | Links Restored
Dave is from England and he happened onto the Canadian Family Vintage Postcard Collection while looking for 19th century images of Miramichi, New Brunswick. He has family connections with a couple named Robert Morrow and Elizabeth Pallen who were married – he believes – on August 18th, 1862. This couple lived in Miramichi for awhile.
I’ve included some links to online resources below, but I’m hoping some New Brunswick/Miramichi/Northumberland researchers might be able to help him still further. What Dave is looking for is:
1. anyone with knowledge of Robert Morrow and Elizabeth Pallen
2. historic pictures of 19th century Miramichi, N.B.

This just in from reader Wendy Hawksley of New England Genealogy .
How interesting! I wish I could help; my husband’s ancestor was married to a man who had a store in Newcastle and lost it in the Miramichi fire. But, by the 1850′s, they were all in Maine. Those are fabulous websites – I’ve learned quite a bit from the Newspaper Vital Statistics. I also recommend the New Brunswick First Families collection: http://www.nbgs.ca/firstfamilies.html. And then she added this note
”Elizabeth and Robert are on page 6″
Thank you Wendy – there’s nothing like a New England genealogist helping a British researcher with a query on a Quebec site, concerning a New Brunswick research problem! Vive l’internet!
