John Blanchard (1843-1867) was Stephen and Catharine's eldest son. He was born 14 August 1843. John was baptized Roman Catholic, 27 August 1843, in St. John the Baptist, Miscouche, Prince Edward Island. His sponsors were Donald Ferris and Catherine McNeil. In the 1861 Canadian Census, an 18 year old John was living with his family in Tignish, Prince Edward Island. John married Ann Cook, 27 June 1867, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. They were married in an Episcopal Church. John died 26 November 1867. He died in Halifax, Nova Scotia, from disease of the heart.
Due to John's short life, I think I am finished researching him. The one name I would like to follow up on is Donald Ferris.
