|I am currently trying to identify the parents of Simon Fraser of Island,
East River, Pictou County, Nova Scotia.
It is though that Simon's wife's name was Ann, and last name possibly Calder. They may have been married in Scotland and arrived at Pictou about 1801. Simon was a miller and died in the early 1840s. His Wife had already passed away.
The number of children they had is in dispute but four sons are known: Alexander, Charles, Frederick, and William. There may have been a fifth son James. It is speculated that there were four daughters, possibly Maggy and Katherine are two of them.
If you have an answer or can suggest where I might check,
