A friends wife mentioned having Read ancestors from Westmorland County New Brunswick. This is where our Hickman’s are from. She also has Nova Scotia ancestors that were in the lumber business – same as our Davison family.
We must be related right? So the hunt is on!
Thus far, I’ve found a Reed – Howell connection starting with the marriage of Annie M. Wells to Capt Benjamin A. S. Read in 1822 . Not sure where that leads – more to follow.
