Sophronia Farrar d. of Abner Farrar/Farrow & Susannah Sherman?

Looking for an official birth record for Sophronia Farrar, born 26 March 1823 in St. Davids, NB. I'm also looking for any record of her parents in New Brunswick around that time.

Sophronia was the daughter of Abner Farrar/Farrow and Susan/Susannah Sherman. According to "The Yates Book" (p. 31), her parents "Abner and Susan (Sherman) Farrar" were "of St. David's", and she reported New Brunswick as her place of birth on the 1850 - 1880 US Censuses. She married Enoch Brown in 1840 and lived in Princeton, Washington, Maine.

Her parents, Abner and Susan, MAY have come to St. David's from Islesboro, ME, in which case Sophronia is likely a descendant of Mayflower passenger Edward Doty via the Shermans.

I'm trying to determine if my St. David's Abner Farrar/Farrow & Susan Sherman are the same people as the Islesboro, Maine Abner Farrar/Farrow and Susan Sherman. Names and dates certainly line up, but I have no official records for any of them, nor can I explain the move from Islesboro to St. David's, NB.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!
