Who was Anne Phinney who married Joseph Jestings in NS 1806?

+4 votes
PLease help-Anne Phinney is my 4th great grandmother and I can't find her anywhere in records before her marriage to my brick wall ancestor, Joseph Jestings. They married in Cornwallis, Kings, NS (St. John's Anglican in January 1806 and had five children who resided in the Annapolis area. I visited the record office on a trip to NS in 2008 but couldn't find her in the records. Any helps appreciated in finding out more about her.  apriljb@bellsouth.net

Not much help but this death record of a George Jestings, b 1806, son of Joseph Jestings and Anne Phinney lists the birthplace of the parents as Joseph - b. England and Anne b. NS.

I am not familiar with towns in NS, and the image is difficult to read, but maybe you can interpret the location - Parsboro? Panboro? Parisboro? and see if you can locate more on her birth information having a town.

The actual image can be seen at:

Thank you. I do have this death record and I now know her father was Francis Phinney Jr. who's father (same name) was excommunicated form Sandwich, Barnstable, Massachusetts as a loyalist and fled to Jamaica county, New York just before the revolution. Francis Jr. married Sarah DeMott there and they  removed to Nova Scotia where they raised a family (Anne being one of th offspring). I do not know anything of her childhood or how she met my 4th GGF, Joseph Jestings (my brick wall). I am trying to find out more about their young life when they first met and where Joseph JESTINGS was born. I think locals will have to reach out at this point because the goodies I need have not been scanned yet. Annapolis county, Nova Scotia...help!?
