    Summary:
    John Colpitts [Colpitts 4.8.1], male, was born April 17 1768 in Norton, Crawford Parish, Durham County, England and was christened on June 23 1768 in Gainford, Durham County, England. John immigrated to New Brunswick in 1783 with his parents and siblings. He died on August 13 1794 near the Colpitts Settlement, Cloverdale Parish, Albert County, New Brunswick, Canada. John married his 2nd cousin Eleanor Foster [Colpitts.1.5.2] in 1790 in Amherst, Cumberland County, Nova Scotia, Canada. After they married, John and Eleanor cleared land and established a home just south of the Colpitts family homestead at the corner of Little River and Colpitts Settlement roads.

    Ancestry:
    Colpitts.4.8.1: Parents: Robert John Colpitts [Colpitts.4.8] & Margaret Wade [Wade.1]; Grandparents: John Colpitts [Colpitts.4] & Elizabeth Jackson; Great Grandparents: Thomas Colpitts [Colpitts] & Mary Barnes {Yorkshire Migrant}.

    Relationships:
    John and Eleanor were second (2nd) cousins, and represent the first intermarriage between the descendants of George Foster & Margaret Colpitts [Colpitts.1.5], and Robert John Colpitts [Colpitts.4.8] & Margaret Wade [Wade.1].

    Research Notes:
    There is a discrepancy among references regarding the year of John's death from 1792 to 1794.

    Some sources give John's middle name of "Weldon". Given that he was born in England and there is no known connection between the Colpitts and the Weldon's before they emigrated to Canada, it is assumed that this is an invalid entry and is the result of confusion in various genealogical records.
