Milroy Family
Posted by: jan kelly (ID *****8491) Date: June 17, 2006 at 11:47:28

Looking for info on the 2 sons (and their families) of the Milroy family that moved to Maine from Waterborough (Grand Lake area) Queens County, New Brunswick, Canada. The following are 2 sons of William Milroy, 1798 in Scotland, a school teacher in New Brunswick and his wife Hannah Reece b. ca 1800 in New Brunswick. The other members appeared to stay in New Brunswick but there is apparently another brother whose name has ever only turned up once. His name is Alonzo and he is on the 1880 census in Springfield with his brother James.

James Milroy was b. ca 1842 (New Brunswick) married in Springfield in 1869 to Almira Ella Drake. Children appear (although there may be others) to have been:
Myrtie M b1871 m. Archie Milroy
Ida Ella b. 1872
Beatrice G b.1874 m. Alfred Rowe
Pitt H b. 1883

William Milroy m. Margaret Ann Reece in Waterborough, NB in 1853. I believe he remarried at a later time. Some of these children may have been from the 2nd marriage.Their chidren(although there may have been others) appear to have been:
Minnie L 1854
William W (W. for perhaps Woodvale)b. ca 1856 m.Elena Laskey, Maggie Rice?
Theodore b. ca 1857 m. Nina Vandine
Ada A (perhaps Augusta) 1859
Archie 1866
Hulda b. ca 1870
Charles b. ca 1871

I believe some of the children may have gone on to Mass. The above families seem to be in Aroostook and Penbscot Counties.
Trying to go forward or back. Any help with this elusive family would be of great help. -Thanks, Jan.
