>> Hi everyone:
>> The item re the upsetting of the mailboat is actually numbered 207 in
>> vol. 1
>> (1784-1815) of the NB Vital Stats from Newspapers. The 207 is just a
>> number
>> which is used in the indexing for the book. This item was published in
>> the
>> issue dated 22 Mar 1799, Royal St. John's Gazette & Nova Scotia
>> Intelligencer.
>>
>> I have no idea what the number 1783 means. In vol. 2 (1816-1823) of the
>> NB
>> Vital Stats from Newspapers the item is #143 in the index. The item was
>> published in the 19 Mar 1817 issue of the City Gazette, Saint John.
>>
>> I would suggest contacting the Public Archives of New Brunswick to
>> request a
>> copy of all papers that have a connection to Calvin Kidder. It looks like
>> this particular document might refer to guardianship for the child. You
>> might also discover from the PANB whether Calvin died intestate or with a
>> will.
>>
>> In 1784/5 a number of people left New Boston, NH and arrived in the St.
>> David and St. James parishes in Charlotte Co. Included in that group were
>> the McLaughlins who were my ancestors. You might check out the Charlotte
>> County genweb site for those two parishes to see what they have. William
>> Hitchings, 80 Amn farmer arrived 1783 (American Loyalist emigrated from
>> State of New Hampshire)---1851 St. David parish census.

>> My Note: Please notice the 1799 newspaper article refers to Charlotte
