Have a reference that my Loyalist ancestor, Thomas Herrett, from Ayrshire Scotland died in Macedonia, Hancock Co. in 1843. His wife, Bridget, died 8 Sept 1845 in Nauvoo, Hancock Co. They left New Brunswick Canada after 1836 when they were in their 80s. Why? Were sons John or Andrew there? Or daughter Frances, wife of Thomas Besto? Would like any info on settlement of this area and if anyone has info on how to obtain proof of these deaths, or any Herrett info would be most grateful - will share info.
