Do you think it's possible John married Nancy (Ann) in Halifax before venturing on to Boston area? A shame Ellis Island records don't go back that far. There is that has earlier records, but I'm fearful of that site since my PC blocked some kind of attack a couple weeks ago.

There are so many towns near Antrim making it almost impossible to know exactly where he was born.

The obituary that you attached, is that John & Nancy's son?
