RABKIN - Samuel Rabkin, lumberman Albert County 1910-1930 (?). My mother: Bessie Rabkin, born in Alma 1917, moved to Saint John - not sure what year; no living relatives to tell me "the story": how and why did a man (my grandfather) get from Vitebsk Poland to Albert County NB? A family of Jewish descent with no background in the lumber business. My mother (deceased) certainly knew the Steeves family. Any help appreciated. Jason Paikowsky or jpaikowsky@home.com (24/4/2000)

REID. Does anyone have any awareness of the parents of an Amos REID of Hopewell Cape?  Who were they, and where may they have lived in NB?  Amos as listed in the 1851 Census was NB born. This Amos can be identified by the following information:

1.  Amos F. REID  was born October 22, 1823, and died July 18, 1877.  He married Mary Ann TOWNSHEND  December 31, 1846. Children of Amos REID and Mary TOWNSHEND are:  
i. Elizabeth Ann REID, b. October 17, 1847; d. June 18, 1885.  
ii. Eunice E. REID, b. December 23, 1849; d. March 06, 1852.  
iii. James Edmund REID, b. March 05, 1852; d. April 28, 1930; m. X, July 17, 1889.  
iv. Araminta Jane REID, b. March 04, 1854; d. November 11, 1918.  
v. Gilford H. REID, b. May 23, 1856; d. April 23, 1959.  
vi. Alfaretta Amelia REID, b. April 26, 1859; d. December 14, 1892.
vii. Mary Bell REID, b. May 01, 1861; d. September 01, 1914.
viii. Adelbert  Cavour REID, b. March 07, 1863; d. May 10, 1944.

REYNOLDS. I'm looking for ancestry of Sarah Reynolds b 1768, Hillsborough married John James Jonah. I'm also interested in any descendants of this couple. I'm descended from their daughter Mary, who married Zachariah Lutz. Stuart Ward (7/7/1999)

RICKER. We are interested in information on Amos, Ambrose and Beverely RICKER - lived around the Prosser Brook or Turtle Creek area in Albert Co.  Any data would be great.    Thanks John Pond (10/6/1999)

ROBINSON.  Robert Ainslie Robinson was born in Goshen, Albert County in 1855. Died 2 May 1924.  One brother is believed to be George Arthur Robinson b 1852.  Have not been able to track father of above. One family story (unconvincing) is that father may be named Edwin who married a Mary (Polly) Dobson.  Any leads would help me. I have the rest of the tree from there for those who are interested.

ROBINSON. I have 14 generations of Bradbury Robinson's ancestors and descendants dating back to 1580 to 2000. I would like to find more info on Captain William Eli Robinson, son of Aaron and Mary Dudgeon Robinson. He was born in 1832 in Hopewell and died Aug. 9, 1903. He married a Mary, {last name unknown} perhaps in England. He was living in Brooklyn Villas, Ellesmere Port, in the county of Chester, England when he had his will made in 1893 left everything to his wife Mary. I also need info on a Daniel Robinson, son of Aaron. Census in 1851 gives his age as 20 born abt. 1831. Is this the Daniel that married Lucy Rogers? I find him again in the 1881 census at Hillsboro. Maybe he was called by his middle name. He would be the 2nd born male in this family. I can account for all the rest of the family except for a C.D. Robinson. Hope someone can help me on this. Thanks Doreen Robinson Penney (26/3/2001) NEW

ROGERS. I'm looking for the parents of James Clark Rogers, born in Hopewell and  married to Martha Foster of Alma in 1857. He became captain and part  owner of the barque Lalia in the 1870's and '80's. His son was Charles Wellington Rogers, my grandfather.    Cindy Nye cnye@paonline.com  (17/8/2000)

RUTLEDGE-STEEVES. I have been searching for more info on ggrandfather Adam Angus Rutledge b.1869, married Elizabeth Steeves; gggrandfather David M. Rutledge b.1823 d.1904; ggggrandfather William Rutledge b.1808 (?). Any related info would be greatly appreciated. Barbara (Rutledge) Priestley (17/1/2000)

Please note corrections to my initial query.  I now have verified information about my early Rutledge relatives.  David's father was not William, but THOMAS RUTLEDGE, who came from England in 1819 and married ANN (from Ireland).  According to the 1851, they had 3 children, MARGARET, DAVID and WILLIAM and were listed in the parish of Springfield.  David's wife was CATHERINE LONG and her parents were WILLIAM  and MARY CATHERINE LONG.  Their children were GEORGE, ADAM (my great grandfather), PETER and MARY. Sincerely, Barbara Rutledge Priestley (19/6/2000)
