In Reply to: argyle Nova scotia McLarren family by stacey reiley of 100297

Early Nova Scotia Vital Stats can be accessed free at
www.novascotiagenealogy.ca
You may need to download a viewer program which is free onsite to see the actual record. Be aware that there were very few records kept in Nova Scotia before 1860 other than church records and not all Churches kept records.

On the above website, I did find the death record of William McLarren. He died Nov 6, 1867 of Heart Disease in Argyle. He was age 64, born in Argyle son of Charles and jerusha. Informant was Benjamin McLarren. The other record that helped was the marriage record of Williamís son Wellington. Wellington McLarren married in 1868 to Lydie Goodwin. The marriage record states that he was born in Argyle, son of William and Deborah.

I then checked the LDS site which is also free
www.familysearch.org
By doing a search on the information gleaned from above (William McLarren, resided Nova Scotia, married to Deborah, son of Charles) I got the following from a Massachusetts death record of his son William.
William R. McLarren died in Gloucester, Massachusetts of Jan 13, 1908. Born 1835, Argyle, Nova Scotia, Canada. Father: William McLarren Mother: Deborah Spinney

You can probably answer a lot more of your questions from the above two sites
Happy Hunting
Burdette
