    • Hi,
      I find Geo. W. Hewitt, born N.B. naturalized Humb. Co. 1898 Also J. F. Hewitt born Canada, intent to citizenship 1898 Humb. County. In passenger list I find Henry Hewitt Feb. 5,1870 on the Pelican. There are no Hewitts in my cemetery book. One more thing, I have a copy of the marriage information on Thomas Carson and Eliza Jane Parks, I got it from microfilm in St.Andrews. They were married by the same minister as Louisa Parks and Thomas Crozier Steen. No parents listed. You mentioned Hydesdale, do you mean Hydsville? Some of the Parks lived there. If Mariah did not have children there will be no descendents of hers looking for information, another dead end!
