William Masson and Ann Abbott, both of Newcastle Parish, were married on July 4 1861. Charity Jane Abbott was a witness, which leads me to believe that this Ann was the daughter of John Crawford Abbott and Mary Ann Horton.

William and Ann Mason were living in Connecticut in 1870. Ann said she was from Nova Scotia on this census. It wasn't unusual to see Islanders identified as Nova Scotians in the US census records.

And this would be her in the 1880 US census, in New York City:
Name: Ann Mason
Age: 36
Birthplace: New Brunswick
Home in 1880: New York City, New York, New York
Marital Status: Married
Spouse's Name: William S. Mason

Mother's Birthplace: N Bruns
Name Age
William S. Mason 43

Jessie Mason 15
Emma Mason 12 - Emma Charity
Bertie Mason 10 - Alberta
Frank Mason 5
Albro A. Mason 5m
Clara Hosmer 5 - niece, daughter of George Hosmer & Minnie Maron (possibly Masson?) from Newcastle NB

I have been unable to find Ann or William in subsequent census records.
