I just read your message. I realize you posted it a couple of years ago, but on the off chance you might happen to check back in, I thought I'd leave this note.
I grew up in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. My father was Russell Alcorn, of Mocton, New Bruswick. His father was Ernest Jerome Alcorn, also of Moncton. I am virtually positive that your great grandfather, Roland, was a brother to my grandfather, Ernest. I often heard my dad's family mention the old Alcorn restaurant and, in fact, I believe Ernest may have worked there at one point (he spent much of his life working as a chef on the CN trains).
I was born in '55, so the restaurant was before my time. I do remeber meeting Rita (your great grandmother) on at least one occasion. I believe Roland must have already passed away by then.
Anyway, Jason, by my reckoning you and I are second cousins once removed (just figured that out on this site!). I am a novice to this geneology business but, needless to say, am more than a little intrigued by the family research you mentioned. If you do happen to drop back in and find this posting, I would love to hear from you.
