I am seeking information on a James ANDERSON, born about 1748.
He was married to Mary (or Marie / Maria) BRIMMER.
Place of birth is unknown - perhaps Scotland but Maryland, New York, New Jersey
and Nova Scotia are also possibilities.
Here is additional information I have on James:
- He died about 1796 in the West Indies when he was an officer or crew member
on ship engaged in maritime commercial business.
- He was a Registered Master Mason of Lodge # 9 on the registry of Nova Scotia.
- They had 4 children:
Mary born 19 Nov 1776 in Baltimore
Eunice born 14 Mar 1782 in New York
John Secombe born 06 Feb 1790 in Chester, Nova Scotia
Ann (Anna / Isabella) Brimmer born 22 Sep 1796 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
- He was admitted as a member of the New York Maritime Society on 11 Jun 1781.
I also suspect he was an United Empire Loyalist as I have documentation on land and possessions
he left behind in Fells Point, Maryland and the fact that the family eventually settled in Nova Scotia.
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
