Hello Kelly, some years after your original post.....my gggrandparents also from Digby, NS. My gggrandfather was John McLaughlin. Thinking John and Jeremiah might have been brothers? I've had my DNA tested, I have.a Match that shows a family tree wih Jeremiah and Mary Higgins. I have no knowedge of that side of the family...My gggrandfather's first son was named Jeremiah, and he also had a daughter Genevieve (Jane) she is my ggrandmother. Different birth date from your grandmother... interesting, wonder if they were brothers?
