[This was Nellie LELAND'S great grandmother. Eliza's grandfather was Asher DUNHAM who came with the Loyalists in 1783 to Saint John NB and came down here, and his son William married Sarah LANGMAID of Deer Island, NB.]

   [I am directly descendant William H. Dunham b. 1798 Charlotte County.     I had my father go through DNA testing and the results  prove there is no linkage between Asher Dunham and William H. Dunham of Mascarene (St George).    
   Based on my research thus far - I believe that Joseph Dunham is the father of William H. Dunham.   He came from Deer Isle, ME and is the son of Elijah Dunham, also of Deer Isle.

#37Samuel Craig, 1834 - 1872. (son of Samuel Craig, born 1798 in Ireland) As far as I know he was born in Back Bay and died there. He is buried in an obscure grave site in Back Bay, on the shore of Murphy's Cove. It is a private lot with 3 iron markers with no indication who is buried there. His stone marker is the only other marker there. Area cleaned up a bit last summer by myself and 2 brothers.
