Subject: Re: John James Price
Date: Sunday, November 11, 2018
Not much to go on here, but I suppose we might start with John J. Price (b. ca. 1900) who m. Newcastle, Newcastle Parish, Northumberland Co., NB 14MAR1932 Maud A. Gahan. See:
This appears to be John James Price b. 28JUN1900, d. Killarney Road, Nashwaaksis, Douglas Parish, York Co., NB 27OCT1955. See:
The site at:
should also be of interest.
This would give the family:
211. JACOB B. PRICE b. 27MAR1869, m. Northumberland Co. 1JUL1890 JESSIE (ANNIE J. ?) VICTORIA CONNERS (b. 10APR1874, d. (Jessie Victoria Price) 20NOV1949). This could be Jessie Conners b. ca. 1872, d/o Thomas and Jane Conners in Derby, Northumberland Co. in 1881.
More likely, Jessie could be Jessie Conners b. ca. 1874, d/o William and Jane Conners of Blackville, Northumberland Co. in the same census. "Received by Chairman of District in Autumn of 1901" (away). Mrs. Jacob B. Price, member Methodist Church 1902-3 (from Red Pine Island).
Jacob is also sometimes given as Jacob Weeks. That his parents were b. NB suggests he was not Stephen Blanchard's (b. NS) son. That he is with Stephen and Ann Blanchard in 1891 and 1901 with Ann, suggests she was his mother. There is some indication that Ann, in 1901, is indicated as his mother, but I do not see that. She is listed as wife to Stephen, whose name is crossed out; but Stephen is indicated as Jacob's father. Presumably, this means step-father.
In Derby Parish, Northumberland Co., NB in 19911 there were:
Price Jacop M Head M Mar 1869 42
Price Jessie F Wife M Apr 1874 37
Price Egbert M Son S Mar 1892 19
Price Henry M Son S May 1895 16

Price Curtis M Son S Aug 1900 10
Price Martha F Daughter S Jun 1902 8
Price Annie F Daughter S Apr 1905 6
Price Jacop M Son S Apr 1907 4
2111. EGBERT WILLIAM (or "WILLIE EGBERT") PRICE b. Tabusintac 15MAR1892, m. Brewer, ME 17JUN1911 BEATRICE J. ANDERSON (b. ca. 1893, d. Anson, Somerset Co., ME 14JUN1979 age 86-years).
An Egbert W. Price b. 4FEB1922, d. Augusta, ME 1DEC1995 age 73 years, resided Anson, Somerset Co., ME; possibly a son.
2112. PHOEBE JANE (JESSIE) PRICE (d/o Jacob B. and Annie J. Price) b. Tabusintac 3OCT1893, d. (Phoebe 'Jessie' Price) 1SEP1907 age 14 years, 1 month, buried Tabusintac; from a "heavy cold”.
2113. HENRY EDWARD CUNARD PRICE b. Tabusintac 20MAY1895, d. Anson, Somerset Co., ME 18AUG1963 age 68-years, m. Yarmouth, Yarmouth Co., NS 3DEC1914 ALMA CHRISTINA SPENCER (b. Marysville, St. Mary’s Parish, York Co., NB (or Halifax, NS?) 7DEC1894 (DEC1895 in 1911), d. Skowhegan, ME 27SEP1986 age 91-years), d/o Miles Daniel and Christina (Cameron) Spencer.
When they married, witnesses were Ray W. Titus and Sophie A. Price. In 1893, Miles and Christine (Cameron) Spencer lived in Marysville but their son, James Murdock Spencer, was b. Parker Ridge, Stanley Parish, York Co., NB 2JUN1893. Miles (b. Bloomfield Ridge, Stanley Parish, York Co., NB ca. 1867) was the son of James Spencer and he married Boiestown, York Co., NB 14MAY1889 ‘Christianna’ Cameron (b. Nashwaak, St. Mary’s Parish, York Co., NB). Miles (b. ca. 1869) m. 2nd 11JUL1900 Alice Cameron (b. ca. Maugerville Parish, Sunbury Co., NB 1872), d/o James (14NOV1820-29AUG1911) and ‘Satira’ Cameron. Miles was the s/o James and Grace Spencer. Alice S. Spencer’s (11AUG1869 (5AUG1869 in 1901)-25NOV1946), in her death record, is given as b. Nashwaak, NB and died in Marysville. Her parents were James and Satiria (MacDonald) Cameron. Miles Daniel Spencer (11MAY1868 (7JUN1868 in 1901)-11OCT1945) was the s/o James and Grace (McLennan (b. 7OCT1849)) Spencer. I find Miles and Alice at the bottom of page 15 of the 1901 census of Marysville but the top of page 16 does not appear to list any of their children. Nor do I find Alma elsewhere in York Co., NB in 1901. In Marysville, in 1911, they were:
Spencer Miles M Head M May 1869 42
Spencer Alice F Wife M Aug 1860 40
Spencer Murdock M Son S Jun 1893 17
Spencer Alma F Daughter S Dec 1895 15
Cameron Walter M Boarder S Jul 1888 22
An Alma C. Price d. Skowhegan, Maine 27SEP1986 age 91-years (b. ca. 1895). The SSDI gives her birth-date as 7DEC1894. Although said to have been b. in Halifax, I cannot find her there in the 1901 census.
A death record in the State of Maine on-line death archives at
combined with a birth-date of 20MAY1895, and date-of-death of AUG1963 at the Social Security Death Index; show Henry C. Price in the former, and Henry Price in the latter to have been the same person. Similarly, since 'Henny', s/o Jacob B. and Jessie Price, in the 1901 census of Alnwick Parish, was b. 20MAY1895; then this son and the Henry C. Price who d. 1963 are the same person.
Cheryl Peters (e-mail, 9FEB2005) notes:
I can clear up some of this for you in regards to the Alma C. Price and Alice Price connection. Alma C. Price was my grandmother and she had 9 Children. She was married to Henry C. Price.
Their Children were
Henry Price who was married to Birdenia
Eva Price (St. Peter)
Sophie Price (nun)
Bertha Price Burleigh Yanick (my mother)
Harold E. Price
Priscilla Price barnes chapman bryant steeves
Alice was married to Jacob Price and was obviously my great Aunt.

2115. JOHN (‘JACK’) JAMES PRICE b. Tabusintac 28JUN1898 (28JUN1897 in 1901 census, 28JUN1900 in death record), d. Killarney Rd., Douglas Parish, Nashwaaksis, York Co., NB 27OCT1955 age 55 years, 3 months and 27 days, m. 1st United Church of Canada manse, Newcastle, Newcastle Parish, Northumberland Co., NB 14MAR1932 ANNA MAUD (MAUD A.)

Jacob owned and operated Price's service station in Madison, Somerset Co., ME. The SSDI suggests he was a resident of that town when he died.
Shayne Price (Ancestry.com, Northumberland Co. board, 16MAY2004) wrote:
"Jacobs father was also Jacob. Jacob and Alma had sons Egbert, Abbie, Jack and Henry, as well as a daughter Jessica who was a nun in Tabusinac. She died within the last ten years or so."
Egbert would likely be Egbert W. Price b. ca. 1922, d. Augusta, ME 1DEC1995 age 73 years. He might also be Egbert W. Price who m. 14MAY1957 Violet E. Knowles (b. ca. 1931, d. Calais, ME 10AUG1985 age 54 years. Violet E. Knowles appears to have m. 1st _____ Damore.
Henry would likely be Henry M. Price b. ca. 1916, d. Skowhegan, ME 28JAN1986 age 70 years, m. 1st Industry, ME 2JAN1936 Birdena Cain; m. 2nd Madison, ME 10MAR1954 Evelyn M. Jackson (m. 1st Stanley O'Donal; possibly m. 3rd George A. Banks?)
While the age at death for Jacob B. Price matches the birth-date (1907), the ages of these possible children suggest births much too early for someone born at that time. The possibility exists that the Jacob B. Price who m. Alice McCollar and the Jacob Price who m. Alma ____ are two different persons. An Alma C. Price d. Skowhegan, Maine 27SEP1986 age 91 years (b. ca. 1895) and seems unlikely to have been Jacob's wife, but could have been the mother of the above children. See Henry Price at .
Jacob B. Price was the s/o:
21. ANN ('ANNIE') PRICE b. NB 7OCT1844, d. Tabusintac 22APR1920, m. Tabusintac 9OCT1883 STEPHEN SMITH BLANCHARD (b.

North Bedeque, PEI 1801, d. Price Settlement (or Tabusintac), Northumberland Co., NB 1881, Stymiest Cemetery, Price Settlement, Northumberland Co., NB), d/o Jesse and Sarah (Wright) Strang. The date of their marriage is variously given as 31JUL1820 and 3AUG1820, with most agreement on 3AUG1820. I suspect the 31JUL1820 date was the date of a marriage license.
J. Bryan Nuss (22FEB2003) sent a summary of the family of William's father, Richard Price. This gives Richard Price as b. Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire, ENG ca. 1761-5, d.
