John Garvin/Girvin/McGowan from Sussex/Saint John NB

Classification: Query
Looking for parents of John Garvin who was b. Ireland abt 1836, m. Susanna Sheffroth/Sheffrow in Sussex abt 1874 and died in Saint John or Hampton, NB.

He had four children:

Georgie m. William John Mahoney
Alice Jane m. Leslie Singer
William H.
Francis Joseph married Agnes McDonell

McAlpine's has a Susan Garvin, wid of John, in 1897-98 but lists John Girvin with Mrs. Given and Frank Girvan and William H. Girvin in 1900. John last appears in the 1891 census with his family, but there does appear a John Garvin in 1911 in Hampton. Have not found a death record yet.

John's son Francis had a son James Alexander. Not sure if there's a connection to the Alexander Girvin who farmed and was a merchant at varous times in the area (Kingston, Sussex and Saint JOhn) at that same time.
