Miramichi (N.B.) Help Needed For British Family Historian | Morrow/Pallen
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!
