From Jerry O’Brien:

My great grandfather John O'Brien came to Nova Scotia in 1833 and was in New Brunswick in 1843 where he homesteaded in Teetotal (or Cork Settlement, N.B.). He married Catherine Hurley Oct. 3, 1843 Cork Settlement, N.B. She arrived in 1844. They both ended their days at Cork, N.B. She died 1866, aged 44 while John died Dec.10,1885 aged 84. They raised 6 children.

Seeking place of entry to Canada and date. Also seeking Departure point and Ship information.
