Hi,

at novascotiagenealogy.com

In marriages there is a listing that says These marriages were not entered at the proper time
and in the list are
Yarmouth County
Owen Sweeney and Emily Bethune

then this listing for the 1865 entries
Yarmouth County
Dec. 31, 1864
Owen Sweeney age 24
bachelor
farmer
resides Carlton
born Hebron
parents - Owen Sweeney, farmer (no mothers named on the page at all)
and
Emma Bethune age 18
spinster
resides Carlton
born Carlton
parents - Henry Bethune, farmer

Owen's death has a bit of differing info
Yarmouth County
Owen Sweeney age 87
born June 29, 1840 Calais, Maine
died April 18, 1928
farmer
married
burial - Mountain
father Owen Sweeney born Digby
mother Mary Allen born Hebron
informant Mrs. Owen Sweeney, wife

** so his marriage says he was born Hebron, death says he was born Calais, Maine
I would think that when he was married he likely knew where he was born

Canadian census has him born NS
his death says he was married but found death for Emily or so it seems to be
March 1, 1909
Mrs. Owen Sweeney
age 67 years
died of paralysys, 18 months
husband Owen Sweeney, Carlton

I looked for another marriage for Owen
Sept. 28, 1911 Yarmouth
Owen Sweeney age 66
widower
born Yarmouth
parents Owen and Ruth
and
Elizabeth Pitman age 63
spinster
born Yarmouth
parents Amos and Emily

age for this Owen is pretty close
so if this is him, then maybe Elizabeth didn't know where he was born but why
say Calais, Maine ?
