Great to hear from you. Back when I was working on my undergraduate degree (at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John), I completed an essay on the Alcorn Family Restaurant, which was a local diner that was operated by Roland and Rita(Butland) Alcorn between the late 1920's and mid 1950's.
There was a component of the essay that included research on the whereabouts of the Alcorn family. From what I remember(I have more exhaustive information at home near Moncton, New Brunswick), my ancestors left County Donegal(a small community opposite Tory Island in the Northwestern part of Ireland) in 1824. Once they arrived in Saint John, they later settled in a small mountain community of Point Wolfe(Albert County) which is now part of Fundy National Park, one of two Canadian national parks found in New Brunswick.
The majority of Alcorn's established themselves in these parts. Roland(my great-grandfather) was the first to move the family away from rural life. Having worked as a cook in the lumber camps, he and his wife developed a knack for good cooking. I believe my great-great grandfather's name was Murray(although I am not sure).
Other familiy names that are indirectly associated to the Alcorn's are: McLaughlin, Wilson, Butland.
Keep in mind that I have this report at home. I plan on returning to New Brunswick for the summer months. If I happen to find anything, I will notify you.
I hope this will help. If you have any further questions, please write at your earliest convenience.
