a. Note:   AFN: - - Eugene Jackson's database ezrascribner at Feb2007version He cites his sources: A very accurate and comprehensive Scribner source for me was Albert Scribner of Darien, CT. Sadly, he died in the mid-1990's. Albert left an enormous legacy - 14 or so large paper charts of the Loyalist Scribners. Albert spent many years researching in the States and in NB.The charts are on file at the public library in Saint John, NB. You could visit that library and make copies, but you don't need to - I have incorporated all of his data into the Scribner file which I posted at RootsWeb.

Mary McCollough 1 July 1815 ----------------------------------- [Bourdon suggests this joseph is #1 candidate to be long-sought father William H Scribner, the NB Sea Captain, (1802-1841)--as most of the other early Scribners were shoemakers, leather manufacturers, or farmers. [Forsythe infers that]Joseph was apparently born ca 1740 son of Mary Abbott and Joseph Matthew Scribner of Norwalk CT who apparently traveled to NB 1783 on the "Union" ship. Bourdon Scribner suggests looking at any direct/indirect probate records one might find for that Joseph who died after 1814, maybe after 1822.] (--Note that I, Forsythe, sympathize with whatever difficult probate searching has already been tried; but I am just quoting the suggestions of Bourdon P. Scribner on where he suggests concentrating search effort.); is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
