I am trying to find information on my Sutherland ancestors. My great great grandfather, William Sutherland, was born in Nova Scotia 13 Sep 1840, married his wife Melinda Rood, 17 Sep 1862, in Guysborough County. They had nine children and moved to Massachusetts, USA in 1882, and he died there 15 Jun 1933.
I recently obtained William's death certificate which says he was born in Pictou County to Alexander Sutherland and Anne McKay, and that they both were from Scotland.
Hoping to find someone who may know any information about this family, and when Alexander and Anne came to Nova Scotia.
Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated!
