This profile and those of my siblings and parents were created by M.Nason with information taken from the book listed below. Thanks Mark for the hard work you put into this.
When browsing what I have added to this site (over 500 profiles so far) you may see comments such as "Unsourced family tree handed down to Stuart Ward." In fact, that is just an easy way out of not listing all my sources. In the 80s and 90s I created much of my database using myriad of resources but in large part from sharing resources with people like Robert Nelson Ward and his father the late Hap Ward, Doug Ayer and the late historian, Jim Snowden. I don't always credit them in my pages but please know that their help was extensive and appreciated. Without their help, this would have been much harder. I also want to thank my brother Jeff Ward who often adds flesh to the bone through his own research and also acts as my memory when mine gives out. He also provided most of the pictures that I've put up.
The biggest mysteries on this list are Rebecca Wilson Maxwell, Nancy Goff, Nem Cone, Catherine MacFarland and Catherine Purdy, and of course, Wesley Scott and the wives of Michael and John Lutes..
Note that many of the destinations were to present day New Brunswick. If the migration took place before 1784, then I call it Nova Scotia. None of these were technically in Canada as this was all pre-confederation. The most recent immigrants were Thomas and Sarah Smith from Bermuda in 1861.
The migrations I mention need a little explanation.
Also, note that some Planter immigrants and some of their children died back in New England. (Ward, Salisbury, Maxwell, Tower, Ayer, etc.) Loyalism works both ways, although some may have just been homesick. Luckily they all left at least one child behind.

These are the Tartans I use for background images for my Scottish ancestors.
Smith (I don't know if my Smith line is Scottish since I can't trace them past Bermuda but since a tartan exists, I'll use it.)
Also available here: Ward-21154-2.jpg
More tartans are available here. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Clan_Tartans
These are not family specific and there is no one in my family tree that has a personal Coat of Arms except for ancient ancestors, however, following are the ones I'm using for background images for profiles. I only use these when a Tartan doesn't exist. For my own background I use the Nova Scotia Coat of Arms which is also displayed on my profile.

Thanks for your nudge in Jack Layton's profile. I had his name and nickname entered, but the default privacy settings for someone who died recently hid it. I've opened it up so others can fill in more details. He's cousin to so many of us, and an inspiration to so many more, I'm sure he'll get the proper attention now that the profile isn't closed off.

It looks like the sources you are using are good ones. If you'd like to learn more about the project, visit:
There's information there, too, about the types of sources we use (and what we avoid). A good source of Massachusetts information is ma-vitalrecords.org
Consider yourself having communicated with a project-- you don't need to fill out the form again for Massachusetts-related profiles you're working on.
