I am hoping that someone can give me some information on the book "Les Familles de Caraquet". Is this a book I can buy? I have been told that there is information in it on the Wilson family that moved to Miscou Island and would like to read about them. Thanks.

Yes this is a book, but very hard to find a copy. I've been trying to buy a copy for a long time now but can't seem to find a place that still has it. Your best bet is to check with your library genealogy section.
Les Familles de Caraquet" by Fidele Theriault: 1985; dictionnaire geneaologique. (THÉRIAULT, Fidèle. Les Familles de Caraquet. Dictionnaire Généalogique incluant les pionniers des paroisses de Bas-Caraquet, Bertrant, Grande-Anse, Maisonnette, Paquetville et Saint-Simon).

Cheers Gerald :-)

I have a copy of an old book called THE HISTORY OF MISCOU AND SHIPPEGAN by William Francis Ganong, first printed in 1906. I have never really read the book but after seeing your post, I had a quick look through it. There is an old map of Miscou Island and it shows many names of tracts of land which was given to some settlers and I saw the name 'WILSON' in two areas. One name that has come up a few times was one ANDREW WILSON. When I get some time, I'll have a closer look through the book and see if there are any other references re: WILSON.

I also have another book by the same author called THE HISTORY OF CARAQUET AND POKEMOUCHE.

Thanks. This is my line. I have some of this information from the church records. I do not have the marriage of Joseph Wilson and Mary Cowan (my great great grandparents) documented. Do you know which church they were married in?
Thanks for your help.

Hi Deborah:

The book belonged to my grandfather who lived in Bathurst, NB. My father had them and now I have them. I think one of the other people who responded to your question may have more info for you than I can provide but let me know if you want me to look further for any info.

Hi Pat,
When you said you hadn't read the book, I thought there was no attachment to it. I can understand that you would want to keep them in the family. I would too if I could find one!
Thanks again,

I am looking for information re: Ann Wilson, who had a son, George Wiseman, with Cornelius Wiseman, of ??/Bathurst. I have not been able to trace anthing of Ann`s family, nor of Cornelius` father. Ann`s parents are both buried in a cemetery in Bathurst. Cornelius was murdered on Halloween night as a very young man. George is listed in subsequent census as living with his grandparents, but Ann disappeared. She may have remarried, but George is always listed with his grandparents. She had a bother, Thomas, Any help would be enormously appreciated.
