Nelson was a painter in the ICR shops. Was he the James from the 1871 census, or was another son James Nelson born a few years later?

In 1907, there was a fire in the large boarding house owned by Nelson MacDougall in Moncton, near the ICR Shops.

Nelson was living in Nassau, New York in 1948 when he filled out a birth record for his son Willis.
