When we heard of the upcoming ‘How
Many Beans In the Jar’ contest with a crisp new one dollar bill as the
prize, Cliff had a great idea how we could win.
We searched the boxes in the cellar for a bottle of the same size and then
filled it with beans from the pail in the back pantry. Next came the tedious
task of counting the beans.
It is not necessary to count the individual records in the Search Bin at
the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick website. I’ll tell you the answer.

Chambers - Lynch: In 1847, John and Anastasia (Lynch) Chambers were on
a ship, possibly the 'Mary' on their way to Boston to join relatives, when
due to an outbreak of Cholera, the ship was turned away and they came to
Saint John, New Brunswick. They stayed here for a short time before making
their way to Boston. Can anyone provide me with information on them during
their time in New Brunswick.

The family moved to Boston sometime before 1880. The younger John moved on
