Re: McLeod family of Pugwash circa 1872

HVS is the Nova Scotia _Historical Vital Statistics Start Page_

If you go to the _Cumberland County GenWeb Nova Scotia_
( page there will be other leads as well.

Good luck

Thank you for these leads/clues! Could you give me the details of where
these records were found? I should have noted that I am off here in the
'wilds' of northern Michigan and, at this time, have access only to online
records/databases. I have Ancestry, Family Search, use Cyndi's List,
to find other records. No where have I found a good source of NS b/m/d
Also, what is the HVS? I am not familiar with this and, so far searching
have not found anything with those initials.
Again, thanks for all help given!

I don't know if this is of much help. I found a John McLeod, s/o Murd.
and Mary, of Pugwash, who married in 1882. This could be a brother of
Margaret's. I looked on the HVS, it listed Murd. occupation as a ship

Good luck.

My g-g-grandmother was Margaret (Mary) B. McLeod, born about 1854 in Nova
(no known place) (source: later U.S. census records).

The record of her 1872 marriage to Morris Allen, of Chatham N.B., says she
her parents, [Murdoch?] and Mary (Scott) McLeod, lived in Pugwash, N.S.
marriage took place at St. Thomas parish in Memramcook, Westmorland Co.,
(source: Drouin; her father’s name is not clear).
The Morris and Margaret Allen later moved to Stillwater, Minnesota (1880
census), and then, at least by 1889, to Waltham, Massachusetts. Their
Minnie (Mary?), 1873-1948, and son, James William, 1877-1944, were both
born in
Chatham, before the move to Minnesota.
I have not been able to find any information about the McLeod family. I
especially like to indentify other children, if any, and, of course,
(Scots or Irish?) and any otherinformation about her parents, etc. Thank
