Re: Standish - Steep Fall cemetery lookups

I found the information I have about the 1901 Canadian census.

It is for Richibucto, Kent County, New Brunswick. District No. 17, Subdistrict e-1.

John Davids - Age 73
Pauline Davids - Wife - Age 63
Julia A. Davids - Daughter - Born May 10, 1886
Frederick Davids - Son

One daughter-in-law, and several grandchildren are also mentioned.

Note the birth date of "Julia". Same as the date you provided and the same as the date on her death certificate of which I have a copy.

On the certificate he name is Julie Ann David. I have a cousin named Julia, but everyone calls her Julie, thus I think it safe to say the Julia Davids in the 1901 Canadian census is the same as Julie.

My grandfather, Anthony, and Julie were from Richibucto. Seveal of my uncles are buried there or in Aldouane, near Richibucto.

I couldn't find any Thorns in Richibucto or nearby.

Do you know the name of Merritt Thorn's wife?

If Julie was the sister of Fred, that would mean he was my father's uncle. My father always said Fred was just a friend of the family.

Do you know if Merritt Thorn was french? I still don't understand why, if Julie was born in the U.S. and spent the first ten years of her life here before moving to Cnadad, she would speak so much french only a few years later. If she lived her first ten years in the U.S. and her parents were from the U.S., seems she would have spoken english those first 10 years. If she moved to Canada after that, she would have had to learn french, and seems after returning to Maine after only a few years in Canada she would have preferred english, but my father said she and Anthony spoke french quite often.

One of the things that makes genealogy interesting is trying to solve these puzzles.

I really appreicate your help. By the way, where did you buy the book about Steep Falls cemeterys?
