My great grandfather William Thistle (b.1890) immigrated to the united states with his mother Clara Thistle (Allen) sometime around 1895. his mother Clara died shortly afterward and he was raised by his Aunt and uncle Susan (Allen) and James Soper in Chelsea, Massachusetts.
William is listed as having been born in ST John.... I wonder if the family was displaced by the fire of 1892?
Williams father was James Thistle and there is record of his marriage to Clara Allen in 1884. they were married in the George st Methodist Church in St John.
I find no other connection or info to James Thistle... I would imagine he was born some time around 1860.
James did not emigrate with his wife and son which leads me to wonder if he was deceased by 1895?
Later on, William lists his father James thistle as having been a ship pilot in naturalization applications.
