Looking for Charles W. Kilpatrick, father and son from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Migrated to Massachusetts about 1890?

Query by charleym

Charles (son) was married to Mattie Hardy. Am finding little success once family traces back to Canada. May likely have been carpenters. I am starting to doubt that the senior Charles Wesley actually came to the United States as I'm not finding a record for him here, so he probably remained in Canada, either by St. John New Brunswick, or Halifax Nova Scotia.

Thank you! While I had seen this entry before, I missed the reference to Mary's parents coming from Scotland! If I can find a way to dig around Canada, I might be able to locate more.

If you can get the death certificate for Charles W Sr, you may get the names of his parents.
You could obtain both Charles W Kilpatrick's birth certificate if they were born in Nova Scotia from NovaScotiaGenealogy.com

Thanks again!
I'll give that a try.

You're welcome.

I'll keep looking but have run out of places to look at the moment.

I appreciate your interest so far. It is a little more difficult working with the Canadian agencies; not that they are unwilling to help, but because much of their information is more regionalized, and not as computerized as in the United States. I think that my next step will be to contact surviving relatives who may know more about the specific origins of our ancestors. I remember a conversation I had with my grandmother about 27 years ago. She had traced the family back to Labrador and Newfoundland in the 1600s. If I can find her documentation, that would make things so much easier!
