In the NSHVS there is this record: Amanda Gardner and Henry Overmass married 1886 in Queens County Item can be found in Registration Year: 1886 - Book: 1834 - Page: 119 - Number: 41. He was 62, a widower born Seton, Devon to James and Sarah J.
I do not find him in the 1881 Census in NS. but there are two Henry Overmass in Devon in the 1881 English census.
There are two people asking about Overmass: christineover/John Llewellyn location and search place unknown; and Carolyn White Yorke who is looking for info on the above Amanda Gardner.
