Hi, I am seeking info on a John Brenton Donovan.  He was married to Sarah Jane Hudson from Cumberland Co., Nova Scotia, Canada.  The various data that I have on him is very mixed -- his marriage record indicates that he was born in Bristol, Great Britain, c. 1848 to a Henry and Susan Donovan.  His death record states that he was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  Various census records indicate his birth from 1842 to 1850.  I do know that in 1871 he was listed in the Halifax directory as a plumber/tinsmith.  He and his wife had three children - Florence, Jessie and Oscar Glennie Donovan -- and eventually settled in Truro, NS.

Thank you.
