seeking Robert Forrest

I have been searching for about 12 years now, have a few hints that might help me find, Robert Forrest b.1824-26 in Scotland, supposed s/o George Forrest. He married Christiana Weatherhead, either in England or Nova Scotia, before the birth of their daughter,in Halifax, Mary August Forrest (she was my grandmother), in 1860. They also had one son named William N.Forrest b. 1863 in Halifax. Both of these children died in Boston, Ma. and the parents and birthplace of Halifax, NS are both noted in death records. Christiana Weatherhead married 1865 at Big Bras D'Or to Thomas Turner, either Robert Forrest had died or they were divorced. I have information from 2 different census enumerations of Christiana and Thomas Turner with children and household including William Forrest 1871 as an eight yr. old and 1881 in New Brunswick as an eighteen yr. old. Just mentioned this to show what I consider proof of relationships. I would like to find proof of Robert Forrest being deceased or divorced between 1863-65. all of these family members emigrated to Boston in or about 1882.
I live in Florida so need some hints as to where I would find this information. None of the older generations are still living as I am 74.
Thank you all,
Pat MacKinnon Lockey
