Margaret Jane Estey of Saint John, New Brunswick, ?

I'm looking for Margaret Jane Estey (born 1857?) She was married to George Ring of Saint John, New Brunswick. I would like to know her parents names (I'm missing a lot of names :) and place of birth. I have seen she could be American born around Mass, U.S.A or Maine, U.S.A. but I'm not sure. Please help! Thanks!

    Here she is in 1881 with her husband George Ring. In the next household, you'll see George and Sarah Estey (Margaret's parents?), and next to them, Stephen Estey (a brother?)...

    1881 Census - Brooks Ward, Saint John, Saint John, New Brunswick

    George L. RING - M - English - 28 - New Brunswick - Labourer - Baptist

    Margaret J. RING - F - English - 24- USA - Baptist

    Sarah RING - F - English - 5 - New Brunswick - Baptist

    Charles H. RING - M - English - 2 - New Brunswick - Baptist

    Sicilia M. RING - F - English - <1 Born: Mar; New Brunswick - Baptist

    Next Household:

    George K. ESTEY - M - English - 61 - New Brunswick - Labourer - Baptist

    Sarah A. ESTEY - F - English - 55 - New Brunswick - Baptist

    And Next Household:

    Stephen A. ESTEY - M - English - 28 - New Brunswick - Labourer - Baptist

    Julia ESTEY - F - English - 40 - New Brunswick - Free Will C Baptist

    Myrtle ESTEY - F - English - 15 - New Brunswick - Free Will C Baptist

    David L. ESTEY - M - English - 12 - New Brunswick - Free Will C Baptist

    Sirilla ESTEY - F - English - 8 - New Brunswick - Free Will C Baptist

    Now back to 1860. This looks like them, living in Maine:

    1860 Census – Gorham, Cumberland County, Maine – Page 68

    George H. Esty – 39 – M – Farm Laborer – New Brunswick

    Sarah A. Esty – 34 – F – New Brunswick

    Steven E. Esty – 6 – M – New Brunswick

    Margaret G. Esty – 3 – New Brunswick

    Sarah A. Esty – 2 – New Brunswick

    Margaret Estey and George Ring were married in New Brunswick in 1876. If you order a copy of Margaret & George Ring's marriage record, it may list their parents' names. This link tells you how to go about ordering the record: http://archives.gnb.ca/APPS/GovRecs/RS551A/Details...

    The Margaret Jane Estey you see in some trees was born in 9/1856 in Maine, while yours was born 12/1857 in US, so maybe someone has mistaken the Maine gal for yours.

    George Thomas Ring and Margaret were wed 22 May 1876 in St John, St John, New Brunswick, Canada. The following census could also be why it is stated that Margaret was born in Maine (because there's a George Ring from Canada there). In addition there is a Margaret Esty that married a Samuel Esty and lived in NB so maybe people are getting your Margaret, that Margaret and the Maine Margaret messed up together. Like a lot of trees, this surely happens.

    Also about George, he was born 4/1853, while the tree with George and Margaret says he was born in 1855 so there's errors on that side of the tree too.

    One more thing, and probably the way to settle this for sure:

    I would order her death certificate and see if it lists her parents names.
