I'm researching my g-g-grandparents John "Ballem" and Jane (MacKAY) SUTHERLAND. John was born in Rogart in 1789 and died in Earltown, Cumberland, Nova Scotia on April 6, 1852. Jane was born in Clyne in 1778 and also died in Earltown on Feb 8, 1875. They are both buried in MacKenzie Cemetery, Earltown Nova Scotia. They arrived in Earltown in abt. 1819.

John's parents were John "Ballem" SUTHERLAND, b. Rogart, and Catherine (Kate) REID.

Jane's parents were Donald MacKAY, b. Clyne, d. Rogart, and Catherine M .
