My fatherís mother Fairlie Irene MacKAY (1905-1978) was born in Brooklyn, NY where her parents settled after emigrating from Nova Scotia. Her parents were Irene SINCLAIR (c. 1873-c1959) and Ireneís second husband Frederick MacKAY (c.1875-1960). Her first husband, John Howard FRASER (3.20.1860-c1892) by who she had a child (Howard Sinclair Fraser (3.1892-1949)) was lost at sea and she was left a widow for a time.
Frederick MacKay was granted naturalized citizenship by the Infant Act on July 30, 1894. I presume this means that he and his wife had a child who was born in the US and perhaps died as there was only my Grandmother Fairlie and her older half-brother. John Howard FRASER, the first husband, was granted his ship masterís certificate (#2273) on 3.8.1886 in Yarmouth NS.
