Welcome Everyone!

The Fitzgerald's Of Campobello Island.

So far, we have traced the Fitzgerald's of Campobello Island,
back to the Census of 1851.

We are now searching for the Parents of - John Fitzgerald and who was born about 1807. The 1851 Census for Campobello Island, Charlotte Co, New Brunswick, Canada - Listed this John Fitzgerald as a fisherman - Born 1807 /Irish. Meaning he was born of Irish descent or born in Ireland. John, married in may of 1832, in nearby Eastport, Maine, to one - Olive Helvia Levensellar. The Census (same as above,) listed her as being born in New Brunswick. Many people of the Island of Campobello,
got married in Eastport, Me.

There was a John Fitzgerald, who leased a lot of Land on Campobello Island, On Sept-17th, 1799, for 99 years. He leased this land from one David Owen - Esq. In the lease, John is listed as being a farmer - husband man. John signed with an (X)
mark. This was an Indenture/lease.

We believe, that this John Fitzgerald may have been the father of John Fitzgerald - born in 1807. Although we have found no proof.

Also, we are searching for the parents of his wife, Olive Helivia Levensellar. (updated)

John and Olive, had 7 Children.

Some of these Children moved away, while most remained on the Island.

Places that Campobello Island - Fitzgerald's

Moved to are: (that we know of,)

Mass, USA.
CT, USA
NS, Can
(Others - Unknown.)

People from other states, have came here looking for
Fitzgerald ancestors, but we did not meet then, so we
do not know the State from which they came.

Olive Helvia Levensellar, we believe was born in New Brunswick (1851 Census) on Grand Manan Island. We are pretty sure her father was one Jacob Levensellar. We do not have any information on Jacob's wife / Olive's mother.

We are not 100% sure if the Name is spelled - Levensellar or Levenselar.

Well, Guess that is about it for the moment.

We will add more, as we find more.

The Fitzgerald's Of Campobello Island.

All the Best!
