Hello I'm researching my family history of who started out in Chatham New Brunswick.
They arrived in the lated 1850's I don't have an exact time but the earliest record I have is from the 1871 cencus.
Hugh Marquis was born in late 1820's in Greenock, Scotland but have no birth records showing his parents. His wife is Mary (nee McIndoe) born in late 1820's on Beaubears Island but again no birth records.
If anyone should have information on them it would be greatly appreciated.
I also notice that there is a listing in the headstones list for Hugh and Mary Marquis in the Chatham Prot list. Is it possible to get a Photo of their headstone or at least the information written on them?
Thank you very much in advance!
PS One of their sons was a well known New Brunswick author and historian Thomas Guthrie Marquis
