From "History of New Annan":

SCHURMANS

The first Schurman to come to the Island was William Schurman born in 1746. He came to Prince Edward Island in May, 1784 with Thomas Hooper and two other delegates acting on behalf of the Loyalists who, temporarily, settled in Shelburne and formerly came from New York, New Jersey and other American colonies. They, however, must have been pleased with what they found as a large colony, including the William Schurman family, came and settled in Bedeque in July of the same year. Their son, Thomas Hooper Schurman, married Mary Baxter and went to live in Wilmot, where Lester Baglole now lives. They had the following family: George Darby, Mary Olevia, John Nelson, Howard and Annie. George married Mary Jane Silliker of Wilmot; he bought a farm from Edward Hogg and came to live in New Annan in 1877. They had the following family: Emma, Ray, Leonard, Thomas, Harry and Flossie. ... Flossie married Talmadge Montgomery and lived in Traveller's Rest; they had two girls and one boy. Mary Olevia married R. K. Brace, Charlottetown and had three children.

Olivia went out west, to Manitoba, around 1905, and then moved to Massachusetts to live with her son Nelson around 1907.
