Cunningham - I'm researching the Cunningham family.  I have John Cunningham Sr. (1819) and John E. Cunningham (1849) in Queensbury Parrish, York County in both 1851 and 1881 Census.  Asa Cunningham (son of John E.) was born in 1875 in
Upper Hainsville N.B. and married Frances Blaney of Blaney Ridge (also know as Maple Ridge).  I'm particularly interested in finding the parents of John Sr. to find out whether they arrived direct from Ireland or via the U.S. during either the revolutionary war period (1775 to 1785) or the build up to the War of 1812.

HARDY / JOHNSON - I am looking for members of the Hardy/Johnson family who *may* have immigrated from NB Canada.  I believe some/most of the children below were born in Smyrna Mills, Maine.  According to the Maine Marriage Data Base, some Hardy's married people from "ELL River, NB CN".  It looks like "ELL River"  is/was a small town/village near "Meductic, NB".   It is only about 12 miles west of Amity Maine, so I would guess it is the same ELL River, NB CN" documented in the Maine Marriage Data Base. Any help with this would be very much appreciated. Contact Allen at

SLATER / BUCHANAN - My name is Joy and I have been looking up info on my family roots for the past 9 months or so. I have come very far, but am at a loss as to where my g.g.g.g.grandfather came from in Ireland.  I am asking to find the place he was buried. He lived in Eel River, York County and was a Presbyterian from what I know. His name was Thomas Slater, and his wife was Nancy Buchanan. I don't know where she is buried either!  I believe he died in 1905. Could you help me or point me in the right direction? I looked on the website of the Cemetery Project, where I got your email address, but they don't have any names! Thanks!
