Part IV will proceed with the youngest of Francis (Frank) and Elizabeth Keillor Carmichael’s children.

Isaac was b. 1808 at Pictou Landing, NS. In 1822, he was listed as a scholar (student) in Hugh Dunbar’s school at Fisher’s Grant. There is also a David and Lydia Carmichael listed in the class and this list was signed by James Carmichael, Sr., Isaac’s uncle. In 1831, he married Janette Hamilton (her name is found in a half dozen different spellings). Isaac was known as a shoemaker and was found still living in Pictou in 1881. They raised a family of at least 10 children (all I could find) and all were born either at Pictou Landing or Fisher’s Grant. They were:

            1. Mary B. (1835-1891)
            2. Elizabeth (1839-1886)
            3. John Robert (1840-1900)
            4. David William (1842-1924)
            5. Sarah Jane (1842-1901)
            Isabell (1844-?) – no further info
            6. James Hylsop (1848-??)
            7. George Henry (1849-1924)
            Isaac Murray (c. 1851-?) no further info
            Alexander (1854-?) no further info – Dozens of men named Alexander in the same time frame and not enough information to find the one who was Isaac’s son.

            1. Mary B. – I’ve been unable to locate her in Canada or the USA until 1888 when she pops up in a marriage record in Ipswich, MA. She was 53 years of age and it’s her first marriage. She married David Dow who was from Ipswich and was a knitter. He’s 68 at the time of this marriage and it states it was his 2nd one. Then there is a death record for her for 1891 when she died of heart disease at the age of 56. She is buried in Ipswich in the same grave as her husband’s parents and first wife. She had no issue.

            2. ElizabethElizabeth married Robert Douglas (Douglass) in 1863, in Green Hill, NS. There is a birth record for Jessie Catherine, b. 1869 in Middle River NS. Elizabeth is mentioned in the death record of Angus Douglas who died at the age of 2 in 1874. I did not find birth records for any of the other children. Information on their births was taken from death certificates. There is a gravestone for Robert and Elizabeth. She died in 1886 and he died in 1901. Their children were (all surname Douglas):
                        a. Georgina Long (1895-1949) – She was living with her father, single and                                 age 24 in 1891 Green Hill, NS census.  She was again in 1911 living with                               her youngest brother, Howard, in Pictou.  She was still single. Her death                                 certificate says she lived her entire life in NS. She died of a cerebral                                       hemorrhage on Jun 28 1949 at age 84. There was no mention of what she                             did to support herself during her lifetime and she was still single at the time                             of her death.

                        b. William Henry (1867-1931) In 1891 he was living with his widowed father                                in Green Hill, NS. I did find a marriage for him that fits all the timelines but                              I can’t verify it at this time. He may have married Maude Milligan and had                             a daughter Rachel Ruth in 1902. His wife signed his death certificate as                                 Mrs. W. H. Douglas. He died in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, where he had                                 been living for 20 years. Oddly, I couldn’t find him on a census for those                                 years.

                        c. Jessie Catherine (1869 -?) – She was living with her father in 1891 at                                      Green Hill, NS. She was known by her middle name Catherine. No further                              information. Searches performed for Jessie and Catherine, Canadian and                              USA.

                        d. Angus (1872-1874)

                        e. Howard Wilburn (1878-1937) – 1901 shows Howard living on his own as                                he is head of household in that year’s census. In 1911, He is still                                            single, still head of household and his sister Georgina is living with him.                                  There was also an Iren (sic.) Douglas age 18 living with him and she was                              listed as his sister-in-law. There was no explanation for how she could                                    have that status. In 1917, he marries Mabel Douglas. She could have                                    been a cousin but this couldn’t be determined with the information I had.                                Her father’s name was Alexander Douglas. I couldn’t find Howard and                                    Mabel in the 1921 census nor in the US Federal census. There is a death                               certificate for him in 1937. It states he lived in NS all his life. He had                                       worked at Nova Scotia Steel and Coal Co., in the shipping dept. I didn’t                                  locate any children for him.

            3. John Robert – John was listed in the 1865 MA State census, in Braintree, MA. He                  was age 25 and a bootmaker. He married Maggie Raymond of Weymouth MA on                  Dec 15 1866 in Braintree MA. In the 1870 Federal census, he was working in a                      boot factory, still living in Braintree and they had two daughters, Ada, 3, and                          Jennie, 2. There is a birth record for Frederick in 1871. The 1880 cen. shows                        them still living in Braintree, John still working in a shoe factory and all three                          children are with them. In 1884, on Sep. 12, at the age of 17, Ada died from                          Scarlet Fever. On Oct 20, 1884, a new baby, Olive Isabel was born to the family.                    In 1887 there appears Pension Records for John’s service during the Civil War.                      He had attained the rank of Sgt. in the 42nd Massachusetts Infantry. On Apr. 11,                   1892, at the age of 7, Olive Isabel died of meningitis.
                        a. Adeline Florence (1867-1884)
                        b. Jennie Gilbert(1868-1952)
                        c. Frederick Raymond (1871-1951)
                        d. Olive Isobel (1884-1892)

            Then in 1900, John Robert died at the age of 60. At this time, the Military Pension Records appear again with his wife Margaret, a widowed dependent. Margaret (Maggie) died Dec 29 1912 of Pneumonia. Her death certificate states her residence was at 49 Central Ave., Braintree, MA.

                        b. Jennie, at age 49, married, for the first time, William Robert Patterson, of                                Quincy MA. The oldest surviving daughter of John and Maggie shows her                              and her husband living at 49 Central Ave., which had been the home of                                  Jennie’s mother, in the 1920 census. By 1930, they had moved to New                                  Ipswich, NH and appear to be retired as no occupation listed for either of                                them. The 1940 census shows them living in the same house as before.                                There was no issue from this marriage. Her husband was not working, but                             Jennie was serving on the School Board. Their gravestone shows                              that William died in 1946 and Jennie, in 1952. They are buried in                                            New Ipswich, NH.
                        c. In 1893, Frederick married Sarah Reviere, of NJ. The marriage record                                    states he is a salesman. In short order, Fred and Sarah had four children,                             Florence Isobel, 1894, George Frederick, 1896, Donald Reviere, 1898 and                             Sarah Margaret, 1899.
                           All their children were:
                                                c/1. Florence Isobel (1894-1987)
                                                c/2. George Frederick (1894-1967)
                                                c/3. Donald Reviere (1898-1978)
                                                c/4. Sarah Margaret (1899-?)
                                                c/5 John Robert (1901-?)
                                                c/6 Dora Alma (1904-?)
            In the meantime, the 1900 census shows Frederick and Sarah, with two of their        children, living on Pond St. in Braintree, MA. Oddly enough the youngest two children, Donald and Sarah, are listed as boarders with the family of Ben Goodwin, also on Pond Street. In 1901, Frederick and Sarah had a son named John Robert and in 1904 they had a daughter named Dora. In 1910, Fred, his wife and all six of his children are living at 5 Canal  St. in Braintee, MA
            Now to continue with Fred and Sarah in the 1920 census. They were living at 5 Canal St. in Braintree with George and his wife Sarah, Margaret, John and Dora. Fred was a Town Clerk and George was a mechanic at Machine and Gear Works Co. Margaret and John are both clerks in offices and Dora is still a student.
                        c/1. Florence (who goes by her middle name Isobel), the oldest of this family, is not found again until 1928 when she married George Rice. They settle in Charlton, Worcester, MA, he is a farmer and she is a teacher. They have two children, Shirley, 1931 and Robert, 1933. Mr. Rice is working for the WPA.

                        c/2. George Frederick married Sarah Langford in 1919. At the time of their      marriage he was a machinist and she was a shoe worker. In 1920, George and Sarah are living with his parents in Braintree, MA. By 1930 they are living in Nottingham, NH, near his parent. They have two children, Elizabeth, age 10 and Catherine, age 7. In 1940, George is a chopper in a lumber mill and he and his family still lived in the same house as 1930. Elizabeth was married in 1939 to Herbert Philbrick, in Maine. Catherine was living with her    parents. In 1942, his draft reg. information states he was working as a carpenter for Albert Harvey, his brother-in-law. Albert is married to George's sister Sarah. Herbert Philbrick may be connected to the family of Philbricks (with another Herbert), who became a spy for the government. His story eventually became a book and then a TV series called “I Led Three Lives”, back in the 1950’s. Catherine married Edward Coe in 1944. George Frederick died in 1967.

            c/3. Donald’s 1918 draft card says he had a medium build with brown hair and brown eyes. The 1920 census says he’s a patient in the Norfolk Hospital in South Braintree, MA. There is no indication that he is there due to war injuries. By 1930, he was a teller at a Trust Co., is married to Hazel Barton and has two children, Donald Jr., 6, and Eleanor age 1 and lives in Belmont, MA. In 1940, he’s an accountant for a utility co., still living in Belmont and they’ve added one more child, Marylyn, age 9. Donald died in 1978 in Needham, MA.

                        c/4. Sarah Margaret – Used her middle name Margaret and married Albert Lionel Harvey in 1924. Their children were:
 Virginia 1925, Alma Mae 1927, Albert Lionel 1930, John Frederick 1933, Beverly 1937 Roger 1940.  Alma married Ralph Silver in 1945; Albert married Jane Mariotti in 1951; John F. married Shirley Hood in 1954.
              Sarah died in 1996 at the age of 97 in Rockingham NH.

                        c/5. John Robert – Married Eva Demers in 1923 in NH. By the 1930 census               they had one child, John Robert, Jr. and all three are living with John’s parents, Fred             and Sarah. John Jr. is age 6, while both of the older two men work on farms.

                        c/6. Dora Alma was b. in Braintree, MA but in 1930 she was living as a                    lodger in a boarding house in Boston and she was working as a waitress. By Aug.                 1930 she had married George Bishop in Nottingham, NH. In 1940, they were living at           60 Westminster St. in Boston MA and there are three children: Nancy Jane 1931;                 George 1935; Bradford 1937. George was an accountant for an oil company.
