Re: John and Amelia Willigar of Parrsboro

Hi Dave,



Where is the marriage record of John Willigar and Mary Ann Ruff taken from,
I can't find it on the NS site?



I believe on the 1871 Mill Village census that John, age 83 is the son of
John, age 46. I'd like to know more about Mary Ann Ruff.

Anyone know who this John Willigar is?

Re; 1871 Census / John Willigar, age 83, dies Parrsboro on 23 Mar 1874 of
old age, s/o Nicholas and Margaret Willigar.; Informant, John Willigar.

On 13 Aug 1864 at Mill Village, John Willigar, Shipwright, age 46, s/o John
Willigar, m/1 Mary Ann Ruff, age 30. John and Jacob Willigar are witnesses.
1864 less age 46 = born 1818.

On the 1871 Census, are the ages of John and Mary Ann off by at least 10
years each? Is "Amelia A." a m/2 for John?

On the Willigar and Connected Families Website, is the John Willigar's son,
John Willigar Jr. really born about 1812 and not 1823?
