I am looking for information about my great-grandfather Donald Lamont. He and his brother David came to the New Glasgow area in 1883 from England. He was a glassblower and worked for the Nova Scotia Glass Co. from 1883-1890. In 1890 he and his brother started the Lamont Glass Co. in the New Glasgow/ Trenton area. They ran the business until 1897.
He married Alice Wilhelma Kirk she was born 1868 in Springhill, N.S. Daughter of Mary Jane Kirk (Pictou Landing) and David McCrea who was lost at sea before Alice was born.
Donald & Alice had 4 children born in New Glasgow: May 1886 Arthur 1894 Alden 1895 Irene 1897
