MARTIN
Hi,
I am looking for any living relatives of Hector (Hectaire) Martin of
Howlan, PEI represented at #7 in the chart below. My parents knew Hector
and his family as my father (Henry Joseph Gallant called Henry Octave) was
from Howlan and my mother (Emma Pineau) is from Bloomfield. I am trying to
clarify some confusing genealogical regarding Hector's father Simon (or
Soloman) Martin and the 3 marriages that produced all of his children.
Simon apparently married thress times; first to Marine Pineau on Jan 24,
1854 then to Edesse Gallant on Nov 22, 1864 and finally to a Judique or
Julie Arsenault in 1867. There is confussion around Simon Martin himself,
who his parents were and whether or not he married all three of these
woman and whether or not he is being confused with another Simon Martin.
Simon is a great grand uncle of mine. If there are any relatives of Hector
Martin who can help to clarify some of this information I would be happy
to share what ever I
have. Thanks so very much. Gary Gallant

The following information regarding Félix Arsenault comes from the book
"To Show Our Pride" - Interviews with Veterans of World War II, 1939-1945,
Branch #27 Royal Canadian Legion, Bloomfield, P.E.I., Canada, 1992.
(Charles A. Carrier - Editor), published by William & Crue (1982) Ltd.,
Summerside, P.E.I., Canada. Page #4;
Félix grew up on a farm in Woodstock, P.E.I. Félix worked on the farm with
his father and brothers, fished lobsters and did carpentry work. In 1942
he was drafted by the military after having tried to enlist. He was 33
years old at the time he was drafted and he was ranked as a Sapper in the
engineering section of the army. Félix served in England, France, Holland,
Germany and Belgium. He was never wounded or taken prisoner, but was
hospitalized in France a couple of times. He explained that the morale of
the soldiers was pretty good on the average. The sanitary conditions
weren't always 100%. Félix said that his most vivid memory of the war was
Victory Day. There were many celebrations because the war was finally
over. He said that he was never aware of the Holocaust at the time of the
fighting. It was only after did her learn what had taken place with the
Jewish people. Félix felt pretty good when the war was over. He was in
Holand when he
received the news. He was very anxious to get home to Canada. He remained
overseas for about three months following the war. When Félix did get back
to Canada, he worked at the carpentry trade. He doesn't feel that the war
had a big effect on his life, although occasionally, he does find himself
thinking about the time he spent overseas.

PEI Maps
http://www.islandimagined.ca/guides/landuse/topographical_maps_in_pei

The above link was posted in PEI Roots mailing list by a gentleman named Barry.

I did not know about it - and I think many of you may not either.

It's a lot of old maps of PEI scanned - easy to view - and enlarge. I could not get the rotate button to work. If anyone figures that out, please email me.

You can browse at the top right - I did it by lot number.

Some of the older maps are extremely hard to read and/or in real bad shape.

All in all a extraordinary resource for us. Enjoy. Fran

BAGNALL/MAC DONALD
Winifred Jane MacDonald (daughter of Augustin Colin and Mary Elizabeth MacDonald) born 13 Aug 1868 was the second wife of William Ellsworth Bagnall. William converted to Catholism 18 Sept 1884 when he married Mary Maud Reddin. He was baptized and married on the same day at St. Dunstan's in Charlottetown by Bishop Peter McIntyre. I am not sure when William and Mary Maud moved to Brooklyn, New York. I can't find Mary death on the New York index so I am assuming she died and is buried in Charlottetown? William is a widower by the 1900 US census. I can not find him on the 1910 US or 1911 Canadian census. I think Winifred and he married about 1904. I found them on the 1920 and 1930 US census living in Brooklyn. I can't find them on the marriage index for New York or the New York Death Index. Did they marry on PEI? Did they die and are buried in Charlottetown? I found on the web a summer home that was build by William Ellsworth Bagnall in 1909 that is a historic home of PEI.

Ada Warburton
Whilst clearing out an attic in Cornwall, United Kingdom, I came across an old watercolour painting by Ada Warburton from 1880. The owner let me keep it saying it was worthless but I disagreed as the quality is excellent. I have so far been unsuccessfull in finding Ada Warburton in Cornwall or England, but there does seem to be one on Prince Edward Island at that time. If I remember right she appears in James Warburton's will, is she and my Ada Warburton the same people?

Any information would be much appreciated, thanks.

I was born Douglas Ian Millar in Halifax,Nova Scotia on August 21, 1947. I really have very little information to go on! My mother put me up for adoption.She was from PEI,possibly from Crapaud, Tryon, North Tryon or Victoria. She had 2 brothers and 3 sisters. From a letter I received from Child Services dated Oct.23,1991 she was in Ontario and was in her 70`s but wanted no contact with me. I believe she married and left the Island and went to Ontario possibly had other children. I have no information about my father.

MAC DONALD/WEEKS
I am trying to sort out the many different branches of MacDonald that called Prince Edward Island home.
Aeneas Adolph MacDonald married Margaret Jane MacDonald at St. Bonaventure Church in Tracadie in August 1904. I can trace his family back to Andrew and Isabella MacDonald that settled at Panmure Island in 1805. I do not know what branch Margaret Jane belonged to. She was baptized at St. Bonaventure's church 18 March 1873. Her parents names were given as Mary Ellen Weeks and John Archibald MacDonald. They lived in Lot 36 at the time of the 1881 Canadian census. I found the marriage of Mary Ellen Weeks and John Archibald MacDonald in the PEI marriage index. They were married by Fr. Thomas Phelen 11 Feb 1867. They had a dispensation. Does anyone know what family John Archibald MacDonald belongs to? Was Mary Ellen Weeks' mother a MacDonald and somehow a relative of John Archibald's family? What was the relationship that they had a dispensation.

Hello I am in need of some assistance. I have a good friend who was born on Prince Edward Island on December 25, 1971. He was given up for adoption soon after his birth. He has been on a 20 year search for his biological family. I am aware that is going to be extremely difficult for these people to be located because apparently Canada seals all of these documents. Is there any other way these people can be located. He also informed me that he has a brother that was born in 1975 sometime to the same mother. Sorry to probably post this in the wrong section but could not find any place to contact the web master on this site. Thanks for any help you can give.

Death Card Index - gives full card as does the Baptism Card Index.

Watling, Watlin, Whattin
I am trying to find everything I can about Watlings on PEI. My ancester, Jubal Watling, settled there with his family in June 1830. All of the children left PEI, but he married a second time and had another family, which included at least two sons, Charles Watling (who married Sarah Jane Bell - d/o Joseph and Charlotte) and Henry, who was always single and still living on the Island in 1901.
I know Charles and Sarah has several children, but after Sarah's death they were spread about he later remarried to Elizabeth? One daughter, May, married a Turner and lived in the US. Another son, Wm. Ambrose, lived in BC.
Help please!

Egan
I am looking for information on the family of Elizabth Egan. (fathers name was Patrick, mothers unknown) I understand Elizabeth grew up on Beach Rd (Victoria, PEI?)on her fathers farm. Elizabeth was killed in a car accident in Green Rd PEI in 1953. She was living in Charlottetown at the time and was probably in her mid fifties when she died. She was married to Francis (Frank) Trainor and had four sons. Does anybody know of Elizabeths descendents?

Three pages from 1827 - 1829. (there are a few other PEI's in this link also - will post that next.)

"Ronald McDonald, a descendant of the old Scottish MacDonald family, was born on one of the northern isles of the Hebrides in Scotland, at a place called Uyst. When he was a young man, with his wife and their only child, he left his native country, crossed the Atlantic ocean and settled at Cable Head, a little to the eastward of the harbor St. Peters, on Prince Edward Island. There Ronald McDonald afterward lived and died. He was a farmer by principal occupation, an industrious honest man, and while he never succeeded in gaining a fortune in lands and money, he always lived in comfort, raised a family of ten children, educated them as well as the situation of his country home would permit, and trained them in useful occupations. The sons in' the family generally took to farming and fished more or less, according to the custom of nearly all the people of that region. The eldest child was born in Scotland, and the others on Prince Edward Island." Children are Alexander, John, Donald, James, Sarah (m.Thomas Reville), Catherine (m. Thomas Murphy), Mary, Charles, Ronald, Andrew, Stephen (died as infant).

Barrett
Hello everyone,

I am fairly new to being clean & sober and enjoying it quite a bit. I am not 100% certain that I am the fifth Edward Barrett, but my father assured me that I was the fifth Edward M. Barrett and showed me proof of that. I have been to Canada a number of times in my past and I spent part of one vacation in London, England. I did much more there than take a day trip to Oxford as well. Although a friend of my family relocated to Edmonton from the N.Y.C. area, I stayed on the East coast (just north of the St. Lawrence River, Montreal, and Quebec areas).

Be well and God bless,

Edward

WELLS
I'm looking for any information on my paternal great-grandfather John M. Wells. In the 1861 Upper Canada census it lists him as born in 1828 in PEI of Scottish ancenstry. I wish I had more such as hid parents but I don't. I do know he married Margret Beaton and she was born in 1831 on Cape Breton Island. I believe Margret's mother had the same name and emigrated from Scotland(what year I don't know but I do know she was born in 1811). I beleive they were married in Nova Scotia either in the late 1840's or '50's. I'm not sure when they pulled up stakes and headed for Ontario but I was told it was between 1857 and 1860. I hope it's enough, I wish I had more.

Gauthier
My great grandfather was named Frank Gauthier. He was born in 1844. He emigrated from St. John, Canada in the early 1860's. He fought with the Union Army on the Mississippi River until around 1863. He arrived in the Montana gold- mining camp of Bannack with a wagon train in 1866. He married, raised a large family and died in Montana. These are the few facts I have learned from his obituary of 1932. I know the Gauthier name is familiar to Prince Edward Island and I hope that maybe the St. John, Canada listed in Frank's obituary is actually P.I.E. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

BEATON
My great-grandparents, Farquhar Beaton and Flora Nicholson arrived from the Scottish Highlands sometime between 1837 and 1841. They settled in the Hunter River district and took out a land lease at Hazel Grove, P.E.I.in 1847.
I wonder if any researchers have had better luck than I in trying to find passenger lists on these early ships that quite often contained 300 plus persons? Possibly other Highland settlers would have known them.

O'GRADY
Looking for information on Jeremiah J O'Grady, born Charlottetown May 5th 1880.He moved to Newfoundland as a child along with his brother Patrick and their step-mother ( she may have been originally from Newfoundland).

Jeremiah was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the Royal Newfoundland Regiment in 1915, then as Captain in 1916. He remained with the Newfoundland Regiment until 1919 as adjutant for the St John's Headquarters. In 1920 he commenced as a teacher of physical education at St Bonaventure's College, St John's until the late 1950's.During this time, he also guest lectured at Memorial University College and with the Royal newfoundland Constabulary.

He had worked with his brother, Patrick prior to WW1 as a painter. Patrick continued the business, on his own after Jeremiah enlisted in 1914.

The family may have lived in the Summerside area prior to moving to Newfoundland. Jeremiah said very little about his PEI beginnings, but we feel that there are still family connection on the island.

GALLANTS OF OYSTER BED BRIDGE
Hi - I first became interested in my 'Gallant Family History' in 1971 and have gathered considerable genealogical information in the years since. Now a grand daughter shows signs of interest in family research, I would love to help by finding someone willing to share more personal memories/information about my father's family. His name was Domitien Gallant. Born 1902, in Oyster Bed Bridge. Died 1966 in Miscouche. Family members, now deceased, had provided some basic personal information about his parents, Hilaire and Marie (Buote) Gallant. I also remembered them both as a very young child, but there may still be someone out there who knew them (or of them) personally. I was told that my Grandmother Marie was the 'self-styled' village nurse. My grandfather was a very social fellow - a fisherman by trade, but loved music and story telling. The family relocated to Boston for several years in the 1920s. I would also be interested in hearing about those work expeditions. My father's brothers who's families may still be in the Rustico area were Vital (wife Angie) and Edmond (Wife-Lorette). I may have info for others to enjoy as well

My grandfather was Thomas Stretch. He married Ethel Henderson. I am the daughter of their son Alfred (deceased). Both my grandparents are dead now and I would like to know if I have any relatives in Canada or elsewhere that remember or know of them. I have a spinning wheel my Grandparents gave me and they said it came from Scotland.

JOHNSON
I have a photo that was taken around 1897 on the Island at a home called Rose Cottage. I believe that it was owned by a Johnson family as one of the men in the photo is a Dick Johnson. He would be 18-20 years old at the time. Most of the other men were Acadians from Miscouche and West Prince who were at that time studying at Prnce of Wales or/and Union Commercial College. Would any one know who was that Dick Johnson and where is/was Rose Cottage.

Information on Mary MacDonald and her lineage would also be appreciated.

For 12 years I have been trying to trace my g. grandfather Andrew McInnis to no avail. According to St. John, N.B. Catholic records, he was born in PEI around 1833 which fits into your family. I really don't know if he was irish or scottish. He did marry Ann McCafferty, Irish Catholic, but, who knows if he was catholic or not.

John married my Nana, Agatha Gouthro, from Nova Scotia, in 1928. They met in Boston, Massachusetts. They had one child, Geraldine Theresa Perry. Unfortunately, my Grandfather and Nana seperated when my mother was 8. While my mother saw him several times after that, they did not remain close. My Grandfather died in 1962. No one knows where the gravesite is, and I am unable to find any records relating to his death.

Hi
When young - perhaps 1940s my father used to take me to the North Beach Point on Panmure Island. He would point out DeRoma's glass factory - in fact I still have a few pieces of glass from there - other things were the forge remains and a cellar which he said had been the home of a Mustard family. Perhaps they had been associated with Andrew MacDonald business.
Does anyone know any of the history of this family? Perhaps there are descendants still but I don't know of them.

I am trying to find out information for Mr. James Murray, who I believe was born in Bedeque in the early 1800's. He married Mary Hooper, also born in Bedeque in 1820 I believe. (they had a son Major Hooper Murray in 1846, who married Gertrude Lingley). I would like to know both their birth dates, when they married, their death and burial sites if possible. Other children names also would be of great interest.

Thanks to all
Just a short word of thank to those who answered my query about Josephine DesRoches. It certainly seems to be the right person. At this point, am looking now for the marriage of her parents: Joseph DesRoches and Mary/Marie Arsenault. Have placed a query at the Arsenault genforum and hopefully will hear something positive. Again, sincere thanks for your help. This group is the greatest!

Interesting read... I know I had relatiions over in Canada not quite sure how far back, but I know that the name Ferguson/Crayton... Farthing(Canadian) marrying a Crayton from Stirling are also related to the Beatons who live around the Saskatchwan area. unfortunately can no longer find who where as they have since passed on over here.

DESROCHES
Am helping a friend get started here in Rhode Island, whose great-grandmother was born on Prince Edward island. Josephine DesRoches was born (according to her Social Security record) 8 Sep 1896; and died on 21 Jun 1988 here in RI. She married circa 1919 in Providence to Joseph E. Sheridan, son of John & Mary (McDonough). I have no idea which parish she was born/baptized in, nor the names of her parents. Would any DesRoches researchers/data gatherers have an answer? Thanks, Dennis

If you are descended from the family of Thomas Horne and Jane Gavin (Scotland,Ontario & PEI) who settled on the Western Road near Bloomfield Corner, then you would be interested in this family.

I am still looking for the parents of John McLeod born either in Charlottetown or on Colville Road, Lot 39 between 1851 and 1856 and who married Margaret Scott b.1855, daughter of John Scott and Grace MacBeath. Whyte's dictionary gives the name of a John McLeod who came from Skye to PEI and settled on Colville Road, as a farmer, before 1845, Religion would have been Presbyterian. Please note that John McLeod (the younger) was a merchant tailor in Charlottetown and is easily confused with another merchant tailor who had a shop nearby and was also John McLeod but was Roman Catholic by religion.

I am also looking for any information about John McLeod's youngest son, David who died in about 1974, probably in Charlottetown.

They lived on Lot 59 I believe. It is my understanding that their 4 children became orphans at the time of their parents' death as they were listed on a Paupers Report. Alexander died in Feb 1846 and Ann died in May 1846. Apparently one of the four children went to live with a John McPhee. The MacGregor children were as follows: Christy (m.

Donald Francis,also a sea captain, was married to Louise McPhee and is buried on the Island. I have found John living with his wife Ethel M. in Lynn, MA in 1910. Allan Joseph served time in prison and was deported to London, Ontario. I have nothing from the time of his prison release which was about 1929 from KS.

I am seeking to confirm if he was the son of Allan/Allen McNeill, b Baillevoulin, Mull, who died in PEI 04/10/1870 aged 93 yrs old. I was sent a photo years ago stating that this Allan married 23/??/1812. Allan had other children to Margaret McFadden, namely John b 11/02/1813, Janet b 15/02/1815, Finlay b 11/09/1819, Lachlan, Sarah b 05/11/1821 (all in PEI)

I would be grateful for assistance. I did try to get in contact with the Lodge to see if they had other archival records but have only information from them from 1988.

Regards,

Dr Richard McNeill

WILLIAM CROSBY HOBBS FAMILY
I am researching the William Crosby Hobbs branch Hopps Hobbs family tree from West River.

In searching for the ancestry of my Grandfather Albert Charles Hobbs, I have come across your document "The Descendents of George Hopps and Anna Maria Schultz on the Island register.

There was a story in my family that said my grandfather's people came to the U.S. from Europe perhaps Germany by way of Prince Edward Island in Canada, and that their name had been changed to "Hobbs" from something else o needless to say, I was excited when I saw your genealogy document.

My question Are there more children of William Crosby Hobbs and Martha Dunn who are not listed on the sheet? Might one of them be Albert Charles, born after 1851?

What leads me to believe that I am on the right track is that I have a photo of Albert Charles, where my father deceased has written family names. From the top is

William Crosb y Hobbs a piece of tape has marred the middle word
London, Ontario, Canada
1st Family
George C Hobbs
2nd Family
Jennie Hobbs Phipps
Martha Hobbs Stone 1
Susie Hobbs Norton
Addie Hobbs Otis 2
Asterisk in front of Albert Charles Hobbs 3 1 1 signifying his three marriages
Frank C Hobbs

I assume the numbers after the names are the number of children for each, at least the ones Albert knew about. I am not sure what the 1st and 2nd family mean, as there is no previous wife for William Crosby Hobbs listed on the Island register.

I notice that in the William Crosby Hobbs list of children on the Island register are Mary Susan maybe my Susie? and Adeline Louise maybe my Addie? So I thought this was worth pursuing by checking with people in PEI who may also be researching this family.

I have found documentation in the Ontario death records that William Crosby Hobbs died in London, Ontario in 1896. The informant for this death record, which I assume means the person who gave the information for the document, is A.C. Hobbs which I take to be Albert Charles Hobbs.

I would appreciate anything you might have that would verify or nullify that my grandfather is part of this family tree.

If you think some of this sounds likely, I would be willing to share and discuss it with any of you who are part of the William Crosby Hobbs family. I have lots more information about this family that I have been finding over the past few weeks of intense researching, and it would be good to bounce it around with someone to see if I am on the right track.

Thank you for any help any of you can give. 26 July 2010

NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIBERS!
IMPORTANT UPDATE! - With July 17's server move, it became necessary to require that all newsletter recipients confirm their subscription by clicking on a custom link in a subscription probe message. This needs to be done once only unless you request your address be changed. This change was first mentioned in the Jun 11, 2010 newsletter. These messages went out to all newsletter subscribers just after the week's newsletter left the old server and were entitled "Please confirm your subscription."

If you don't think you received this message, please check your spam or junk mail filder to see if it got routed there. If you do not confirm your subscriptions in a reasonable time, the new server will automatically remove you from the list, and you will not receive newsletters. This is for legal and anti-spam reasons, and to validate subscribed addresses. Addresses which bounce 5 times will automatically be removed. These confirmations must be in place prior to July 23, 1010, in order to receive your next newsletter. I apologize for this being necessary, but these are the rules of the server we are now on.

You will NOT be able to subscribe anyone else but yourself. If you wish to have someone else subscribe, let them know about the newsletter, forward them a sample newsletter, whatever, and then ask them to contact me themselves if they wish to be added to the list. They then will receive their own confirmation link.

This procedure is safe and information remains private and will NOT be shared with anyone. It is for purposes of Newsletter management only. If you received the confirmation message and deleted it without following the confirmation link, you must contact me and let me know, so that I can try to get the server to send out a new copy, problem being each link is specifically tailored for you. If you do not, you won't be getting future issues. If you have difficulty confirming your subscription, turn line-wrap off in your email program before clicking on the link given in the message. Then try it again.

Site Moved to New Server!
Hi All:

As of today, Noon, the Island Register site is on a new server. The move completed then appears to have gone well. The address remains the same, but the server it is on now is almost 2000 miles away from the old one.

At the same time, the PEIGS site was also moved, and a new domain name http://www.telpei.com was st up for the Telephone Museum. You can still get to it and the phone pages from within the Island Register.

This change was made necessary by the closure of our former server in Pooles Corners. It involved the moving and in some cases re-configuration of over 7000 files.

All former addresses remain the same.

ARSENAULT
I am looking for genealogical information (dates of birth/death and marriage) of a Tim or Timothy Arsenault and his wife Loretta Arsenault (although this may not be her maiden name). They were likely married at the early part of the 1900’s or perhaps late 1800’s. They had at least ten children; Leonard, Madeleine, Exineina, Sid, Marie-Irene (born Jan 28, 1912-Nov 2, 2008 and married to Frederick Gallant), Rita, Aldea, Ernest, Bella and Corinne. Thank you in advance.

DOWNEY/HUGHES
Hi there. I am interested in gathering information on my father's family. He was James Allan Downey. His parents were James and Laura (Hughes) Downey. Laura was from Avondale, PEI originally. Her parents' names were Joseph and Mary (I think). She died young. They lived in Montreal but I think my grandfather may have been from New Brunswick. Any information would be appreciated as I know very little and my father has passed away. Thanks.

STEWART
It seems our family oral history is filled with misinformation on several lines, so I'm trying to separate fact from fiction. Having common PEI names makes it rather more difficult.

I've got a ggg grand uncle Charles STEWART born PEI circa 1820, who is in New Brunswick in 1861 census with wife Jane & children, & who then moved to Pennsylvania, USA by 1870 census.

Supposedly Charles had brothers, Hirman & George and he married Hirman's widow, Jane (MCDOUGALL), born in New Brunswick circa 1824. I'm not sure Hirman really existed, but he is supposed to be my ggg grandfather, born PEI and Jane my ggg grandmother.

I found a newspaper reference to a George STEWART marrying a Jane MCDOUGALD in NB in 1843 but no other Canadian references other than the 1861 census. I found lots of Charles STEWARTs, but have no way of knowing if there’s a connection.

My gg grandfather, Edmund, was born PEI 15DEC 1846. He supposedly emigrated in 1851, but he was in the 1861 NB census, so don't know if there were multiple crossings or not. I have lots of half/full (not sure which) sibling names who moved with the family to Pennsylvania.

If anyone has info that might shed some light or if anyone can direct me to other resources, I’d appreciate it.

MUNRO
James Edward Munro born 1839. I am hoping your listers may be able to help out with details of my great Grandfather James Edward Munro, born around 1839. I am seeking information from Prince Edward Island, as James Edward was a Mariner - sea Captain, and on several of his voyages he has listed that he was born on Prince Edward Island. I have looked at the Guild Hall Library manuscripts, Lists to Lloyds Captains'Register and that register also lists that James Munro was born on Prince Edward Island. I have always believed him to have been born in Glasgow but have never been able to find any record. On Jámes'marriage certificate he lists his father as being Henry Munro a shoemaker and his mother as Anne (no surname shown) and according to his marrigiage cetificate he would have been born in 1837. Can anyone throw any light on this mystery.

BUCHANAN
I am hoping to find someone who might have some info on the following mentioned people. --- Katherine Anne BUCHANAN/PREBLE was born in Belfast, PE on 8 Nov. 1871. The info on a copy of the marriage register page from Boston states her parents as Archibald Buchanan and Archina(Archena) ????? of PE. The last name is not very legible. Katherine was living in Cambridge, Ma at the time of her marriage on 4 Apr. 1894(as per the register page). Katherine is listed as a housekeeper. She died 27 Apr. 1917 in the Boston area. Katherine Anne is listed in the Banks family bible.
My family thinks that Katherine may be the aunt of our maternal gm.(Margaret Georgina BUCHANAN/BANKS. Margaret Georgina was an orphan, born in PE.17 June 1888 to George BUCHANAN and Margaret BUCHANAN.
I am not sure if Margaret's(George's wife) maiden name was BUCHANAN, as it is written on the marriage register for Margaret Georgina and Burpee Roy BANKS. They were married in Newton, MA. Burpee and Margaret moved back and forth from the Newton area and Nova Scotia a number of times, finally settling in NS.
Margaret Gerogina BUCHANAN/BANKS is said to have had brothers James and Will. This BUCHANAN family seems to be very elusive to say the least. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Researching Mary E. Sherin and her Mi'kmaq heritage. She is my great-grandmother on my father's side born on Prince Edward Island from aprox. 1880 - 1886; married to Thomas J. Kennedy from Nova Scotia (died in fishing accident-drowned in a terrible storm before his son Thomas was born). Mary gave birth to Thomas Bradford Kennedy Oct 18, 1904 in Boston, MA; then and moved back to the Nova Scotia / Prince Edward Island area. Thomas Bradford Kennedy grew up in the Boston are - he eventually married and fathered 6 children. One was my father, John Edward Kennedy-born 1929 and passed in 1994. Others still live on the east coast. I was born in 1957 in Providence RI.
Sometime before he died, my father visited the Prince Edward Island area to research our family history, but apparently arrived about a year after the building where the records had been stored had burned down. Has any of the information that was lost been recovered or reconstructed from other sources? If so, or even if not, are there resources you know of I might look to for information about Mary E. Sherin, her history, and possibly the truth of my great-grandfathers terrible fishing accident? Thank you very much, Laurie Joy Kennedy

DARRACH/HENDERSON/PECK
It's taken a year (last query May 29, 2009) but I have now found my Catherine Darrach (dau of Neil & Mary Darrach, P.E.I.) emigration to New Zealand. She emigrated from Glasgow on the ship Varona in 1874 accompanied by Samuel Darrach. She states her age as 23, (so born c.1851) Samuel 22. On her death cert. in 1917 her age is given as 72 (so born c.1845) and at her first borns bapt. 1876, she states her age as 26 (so born c.1850).
In the 1880 census PEI I find Neil Darrach 67 b. PEI Farmer, Mary Darrach 64 wife, b.PEI, Angus, 38 b. PEI Farmer, and Albert 14, Annie 12. Lot 65 Queens, PEI.household 251. These are possible parents for Catherine but I have no proof and would like to hear from anyone who can shed some light on them all.
Catherine Darrach emigrated in the company of HENDERSON David 38, Mrs. Anne (nee PECK)34,Peter 8,Catherine 5,& Mary L. 12.(Mary Ellen Johanna). They were also from PEI & all settled in Waimate, Sth Canterbury, Sth Is. New Zealand. I'm informed there is a connection between the Darrach and Peck name,(possibly John Peck/Mary Darrach-parents of Anne Henderson, above.). Any help with this would be gratefully received. Thankyou.

Campbell
My great-grandfather was John Alexander Campbell, born in Little Sands October 4, 1847 to John and (Nancy) Ann McDonald. This seems to be supported by baptismal records and later census and marriage information in Ontario in 1881.
Some information says John (the father) was born January 1, 1826 to Alexander Campbell and Jessie McInnis but information on Ancestry.ca says that John died in August 1846. Another family member has information saying John married Ann in 1843 and went on to have 7 children. It can't be both and it seems we may have switched families along the way. Can anyone tell me if Alexander and Jessie's son did die in 1846? Or offer any other suggestions?

Churches of Lot 59 & 54
Hi Everyone!

I am trying to find the maiden name of my great-grandmother's mother- with no luck!
I know she was originally born in Newfoundland (but where in NFLD is as mystery) and married John MacLeod. They lived in Lot 59 but I think John was born in Lot 54.
Does anyone know of any Roman Catholic churches in either of these lots that I could contact regarding marriage certificates?
I have tried google but it doesn't come up with anything helpful and I am no where near PEI to go and have a look myself.

Many thanks!

I am looking for information regarding a Charles Bell (my gr. gr. grandather) who was born in PEI on Dec. 7 1854 according to census information that I was able to find. He was married to Catherine Kelly and had 6 children: Raymond John Charles, Joseph William, William Dominick, May, Ellen Eliza, and Alice Maud. I was able to find baptismal records at a Catholic Church in Charlottetown. I have no information regarding whether Charles immigrated into the United States (his son did) or whether he died in PEI, or who his parents might be. I've found a census from 1901 in which Charles lived with his son and in-laws, so I'm assuming Catherine passed away before this time. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not really too sure what I'm looking for, My father is James Albert Matthews, his parents were Lorraine (Hunter) Buchanan (is her now married name) and his father was Either Albert James Matthews Or James Albert Matthews. He was born October 10 1959 In Summerside PE. He has a brother named Samuel Terrance (Terry) Matthews, and I know he lives in Summerside. He was taken away from his mother, and was raised by Charles and Reby Milligan. I have no issues finding the Milligans. They however know very little about the Matthews's. I'm looking for any sort of history, that isn't 100 years old. I'd like to know my 'grandpas' actual name, and when he died. Not sure if anyone reads this site, but it's worth a shot. Thanks!

EUREKA HOTEL/ALBERTON/PEI
I've been researching my Great great grandfather Robert E McLean who was born October 7, 1853 in New Brunswick, Canada. Sometime before I believe 1876 the family moved to Alberton. On most census he is listed as a Station Master for the CRR. Yet, in his obituary, it states he was the owner of the Eureka Hotel in Alberton. How/where can I find information on The Eureka Hotel?

Jamieson
I am looking for information on my Gx5 grandmother named Alice Ann Jamieson.

Alice Ann Jamieson was born in PEI on May 26, 1849 and she passed away in Vancouver, BC on August 22, 1905. Her first name, her birthdate, and the birth province are consistent on several Canadian census forms, wherein her last name was already changed to Taylor. Her later life and passing are consistent with family information and her BC death record.

Alice Ann Jamieson's marriage record is dated May 2, 1872 to George R. Taylor in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. It shows her parents are David J (sp?) and Almira C. (sp?)(initial could be G. or B. or E.).

I have no information as to how Alice Ann came to be in the Boston, Mass. area and very little information on how she crossed the continent to Vancouver BC. Census records and other information show that she had six children.

This is all the information I have on Alice Ann Jamieson.

I am stuck because there is no direct evidence from any PEI records that she, David, or Almira exists. She does not appear to have any relation to any Jamieson on the island for whom there are records from the PEI Public Archives. (edit: Francis Handrahan of the PEI Public Archives has been very helpful but has not found connections either.)

Please help. TIA

I am trying to get early information on one Hugh Gillis (H.G.). Here is what I know. H.G. was at Quesnel, British Columbia in the early 1860s. He had a partner by name of Thomas Brown. These two men preempted 160 acres of land where the small city of Quesnel now exists. They built the Occidental Hotel, which first opened its doors in 1865. H.G. later showed up at Manson Creek in the Omineca area of BC. There was a gold rush on at Quesnel and Manson Creek during these times. H.G. died in August of 1872 near Manson Creek. I have unconfirmed information that he came from Souris, PEI. His birth date, and any other details of the man, would be appreciated.

A'Hearn
I am looking for information about my grandma. Her name was Anna A'Hearn. She was born on the island january 22, 1893. The birth year is probably wrong as she did not have a birth certificate and had to use her sisters to retire here in the USA. I know she was one of nine children, she wrote to them through out her life. I know she had a sister Margaret who's married name is Cahill and her daughter Dorothy Thibert. I know they lived on the island in 1980 as I have a letter from them. I certainly would apreciate some help. We cant seem to find an Anna A'Hearn on the island. My grandma was the best. Thank You, Kathy Gomes

BAGSTER
I'm puzzled by conflicting entries on different parts of the Island Register website.

One entry, concerning the descendants of James Aitken of Kircudbrightshire on http://www.islandregister.com/aitken.html says that 23) Susanna Maria Aitken married Cornelius Birch Bagster in 1834 in Lower Montague and the first of their children was born in about 1835. They moved to England in 1837.

Another entry, concerning the descendants of William Barstow and Isabel Wollar of Yorkshire on http://www.islandregister.com/beairsto.html says that 52) Susanna Maria Aitken married Cornelius Birch Bagster in 1834 in Lower Montague. He was the son of Samuel Bagster and was born on Jan 27, 1814, in Old Windsor, England. Cornelius and Susanna's first daughter was born in about 1835 in England and their other daughters were also born in England.

That's not exactly the same, but similar. However, extracts from The Islander newspaper on http://www.islandregister.com/islander.htm contain the following announcements:
:: Nov 24, 1843, married on the 20th inst, Monday by the Rev Dr Jenkins, Cornelius Birch Bagster, Esq, of Mill Vale, to Susanna Maria, fourth daughter of George Aitken, of Albion Farms, Three Rivers.
:: Sept 13, 1844, birth on the 9th inst, Monday eve at Mill Vale, the wife of C Birch Bagster, Esq, a daughter.
:: Aug 27, 1847, birth on the 19th inst, Thursday at Mill Vale, wife of C Birch Bagster, Esq, a daughter.
Apr 6, 1849, birth on Thursday the 22nd ult at Georgetown, the wife of C Birch Bagster Esq, of a daughter.

Can anyone explain these contradictions? Also, does anyone know why Cornelius Birch Bagster went from England to Prince Edward Island and what he did there?

Glenaladale
I’m trying to track down the original fragment of the MacDonald of Glenaladle tartan. In 1968 the tartan was rewoven in Scotland from details taken from an old specimen that was apparently at, or in some way associated with, St. Peters, PEI. The original is thought to date to at least 1772 when it was taken there by John MacDonald of Glenaladale when he and his siter emigrated.

My research leads me to believe that the 1968 interpretation/copy was significantly inaccurate and I’m trying to confirm the correct pattern. Ideally I want to track down the specimen, which I feel must still exist, and if at all possible get a photograph of it to confirm the pattern, colours etc.

Does anyone have any information and/or would be interested in helping with a bit of historical research?

McAREE FAMILY
Is anyone familiar with the name of Francis John McAree (sometimes called John Francis McAree) who was born in Fort Augustus, Lot 36, on 13 January 1873, one of five children of James and Mary (Campbell) McAree? He married in Charlottetown, on 4 May 1903, Annie Moan, one of my relatives. Both were Catholic, but they married at St. Paul's Anglican Church, for some reason. They seem to disappear after that. Any clues to where they went and what happened to them would be much appreciated. I have tried all the U.S. and Canadian census records; the St. Albans border crossing records; Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario, Quebec, and Massachusetts vital records, all to no avail. Thanks for any clues!

John and Ann had a daughter, Mary Agnes, who married Peter Daniel Peters in January 1900 in Rollo Bay. The 1891 census tells us that both of John McPhee's parents were born in PEI. A long time ago my father told me that John came from Georgetown but I have not been able to learn the names of his parents. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

GAY, Samuel S.
I have just found out about Samuel S. Gay who was Sheriff of Las Vegas from 1910 to 1931. He was born March 1, 1860 in PEI and family moved to Massachusetts where he live in a farm. He died in August of 1932 - and was single. That's all I know. There's several pages from "The First 100 - Portraits of the Men and Women Who Shaped Las Vegas" at this website. I would like to know more about him so if he fits into anyone's family, can you let me know. Thanks.

http://www.1st100.com/part1/gay.html

I also have a copy of an article from Las Vegas newspaper in 1999 about Sam "the lovable lawman."

Here's a quote: "But he was big, 6 foot and 260 pounds, fearless, and equipped with a pair of fists that were so efficient he almost never saw the need to carry a gun, let alone use one. He was also compassionate, never known to abuse his authority or mistreat prisoners. In fact, he was constantly criticized for being too lenient. But he was the right man for the job in his time and place, and is probably the most popular and beloved lawman Clark County has ever had."

JOHN ROBERTS, LOT 54
Here are my problems!

John Roberts married Catherine White, 30 June 1835. I assumed she died before December 1835 because: John Roberts married Caroline White on December 16, 1835. I am thinking that these two John Roberts are the same person. Maybe married sisters? The son of Hilary and Susanna Roberts would be too young for these marriages. Did Hilary Roberts have a brother that came with him?

If John Roberts married Caroline White in 1835, and the first recorded children were not born before 1853 were there any children born before this and if there was who and where are they?

John Roberts marreid Mary Ann Sharam in Murray Harbour 4 April 1843; He was from Murray Harbour and she was from Vernon River, (Their son Peter ended up in Pictou Co.) The witness to the marriage was James Sharam and Caroline White. I don't know who he was. Was he the same person who married Catherine Margaret Machon. The dates of the childrens birth would suggest this.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

MC/MAC DONALD
Hello,
I am hoping someone can shed some light on 5 children I have found in Lot 42 on the 1881 census.

Hugh, Flora, Mary Ann, Angus and Joseph. 13, 9, 7, 5 and 1 respectively.

They are being brought up in the home of Joseph MacDonald and Matilda MacDonald. I am sure this is the home of Joe Donald Hector MacDonald. These children are not Joe and Matilda's. There are two older ladies in the house as well. A Mary - widow- age 79 and a Nancy aged 76. I am thinking Mary is Joe's sister in law. She would have been married to Allen Hector. I am not sure who Nancy is she is not listed as a widow. They are both too old to be the mother of the children listed. They could be- one of them could be - a grandmother to them though. If anyone sees possible link to another MacDonald family from the above children's names, please contact me. I would love to try and figure out why they are being raised here. Thank you all in advance.

HAYES
I am looking for information on the Hayes family of Rollo Bay. Richard Hayes (1819-1908) was born in Kilkenny, Ireland and died in Rollo Bay, PEI. His wife Nancy (Ann) MacDonald Hayes (1802-1894) was born in Clear Springs (Hay River), PEI. Nancy was the daughter of Lauchlin MacDonald and Nancy (Ann) McIntyre of Clear Springs, Lot 44. Lauchlin MacDonald and Nancy were two of the earliest settlers of the Clear Springs area. Richard and Nancy had at least two children. They had a son named James whom I think was a harbor master in Souris. Family lore says he died at sea. James (b.1848) had at least two children, Theresa (b. 1883) and James (b. 1881). In the census records of 1891, 1901 and 1911 it lists a Flora (b. 1851) as a daughter. In the 1911 census Flora is still living in the same home in Rollo Bay with her daughter Theresa. I don’t know if Flora is the daughter of Richard and Nancy Hayes or James' wife. I think she is James’s wife. Richard’s occupation was listed as a shoe maker. Richard and Nancy Hayes are buried in St. Alexis cemetery in Rollo Bay. Their son James is also buried in St. Alexis cemetery. I am trying to find out if Flora is their daughter or daughter in law. If Flora is not their daughter, then who is their daughter? I am also interested in any information on descendants. In Nancy Hayes’ obituary it says she had six grandchildren and I have only found two. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Grace moved to Boston, Massachusetts in the late 1890's and lived there until her death in 1963. I believe that Amy also came to Boston, but I lost track of her and her husband. A third sister, Amanda Inman, also moved to Massachusetts.

I do know that Amy and Johnston Leard had four sons, Edward, Stewart, Earl and Harry. Thank you for any information you can provide about this family.

MILLINGTON
MILLINGTON
I have been trying for a few years to discover something about my Great Uncles life on PEI. His name was William 'Bill' Millington and he was a British Home Child.
He was sent from England at age 12 years in 1896. He married twice, firstly to Myrtle Baker, and then to Daisy(Margaret) who had previously been married to Alfred Chappelle of Charlottetown.
He died in 1964.
There must be someone who knows something. Someone must have arranged his funeral. He was buried at Church of Scotland Cape Traverse. I would love to obtain his death cert if anyone can help with this.
He lived with William McDonald when he first arrived up until he left I think to get married. Family lore says that he had a good upbringing and was in public life in a small way.
I know he owned some land and that he also worked for the railway.
One day I would like to visit PEI but I want to know more about William first so that I can see where he was etc.
I paid a genealogist to try to discover more who was very good but only got so far and I want to know more. I would be very grateful for any help.
regards
Amanda Wood
ps I have posted this message before but realise that there are always new readers of posts so thought I would try again

MACKINNON/MCKINNON
Searching for information on family/descendants of Charles McKinnon, passenger aboard the Alexander in 1772. Am looking for confirmation of relationship.

Here is what I know:
Peter Roderick MacKinnon (my grandfather) Born St. Peters Bay 4/9/1872 - 5/1/1954 (Everett MA), wife Annie Marie Cahill.

Donald Charles MacKinnon (my great-grandfather) Born PEI 1817 - 1/4/1896, wife Catherine MacDonald (great-granddaughter of Dr. Rory MacDonald, physician aboard the Alexander)

Charles MacKinnon (my great-great-grandfather) MacAskill River (dates of birth/death unknown), wife Catherine Gillis. They supposedly had 6 children, 3 boys (Donald Charles, Hugh or Hughie Charles, and John) and 3 girls (Elizabeth or Lizzie, Margaret or Peggy, and Mary who married Angus McCormick. Hughie Charles married Mary Gillis on May 20, 1884.

Can anyone help me tie Charles MacKinnon of MacAskill River back to the Charles MacKinnon (or any other MacKinnon) on board the Alexander. I believe Charles MacKinnon settled in Lot 37 from 1772 until 1779 to pay off his debt to Capt. John MacDonald for the voyage. I think there is one generation missing between the Charles from the Alexander and the Charles from MacAskill River.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

His wife died between 1874 and 1881. I am guessing that his children were born at Brookfield. The children are; 1. Alexander, born 1858, he inherited the farm in 1888. 2. Christy, born 1862 and married John MacDonald, of Lot 30 between 1881 and 1888. 3. John A., born 1871. 4. Mary, born 1874 - I am wondering if she married a Burns? 5. Donald M., Donald had a daughter Flora born before 1888. His wife might have been Isabella M "Bella" MacDonald, daughter of Kenneth MacDonald and Sarah MacKenzie. He might have had a daughter Annie born about 1880. He had left home by 1881. 6. Catherine, born 1852 and died Jan 14, 1916, at South Granville. On April 8, 1874, she married Jesse Corbett of South Granville. 7. Annie, born 1859 and died Aug 8, 1920 at North Granville. She married George Mallett of N Granville after 1889. I have no proof that Annie was Alexander's daughter. I found an Alexander MacDonald of Lot 32 in the 1891 census, but his birthdate is 2 years out.

Greetings everyone!

I'm stuck. I'm hoping someone can help.

My great-grandparents, Catherine W. Duffy (1871-c.1950) and John B. Callahan/Callaghan (18??-1934), were from the Fort Augustus area. They moved to Boston sometime before their only son, my grandfather, was born in 1910.

I've had no problem finding Catherine's relatives, but I'm not having the same luck with John. I've found many people who may be the right John (using the online PEI baptismal records) but I have no way of narrowing things down. If you have any information, I'd love to get in touch.

JOSEPH FISHER-NEW HISTORY
I am a direct descendant of Joseph (1) Thomas (5) Joseph (20) James (62) FISHER.

In 1962, I had a conversation with my Aunt, Pearl Rita Fisher, born October 17, 1909, 100 years ago today. She stated to me and my mother that their father, my grandfather, James Thomas Fisher (#62) told her that:

“Our family’s story is the story of Evangeline.”

The plain meaning implies that the ancestors of JOSEPH FISHER left Plymouth/Turnchapel, Devonshire, UK, sometime before 1755, the time of the Acadian Expulsion told in Longfellow’s poem “Evangeline.” Therefore, the Fishers settled in Acadia, now Nova Scotia, before 1755. According to the surname lists (on the web: http://www.acadian.org/surname4.html ) of Acadian names before 1755, the Fisher name was quite common in Acadia before 1755! In the Everitt family page on this islandregister site, John Fisher (2), who married Eliza Ann Everitt, stated that he and his 4 brothers left Plymouth for New Brunswick in 1824.

Therefore, the ancestors of JOSEPH FISHER must have left Acadia/Nova Scotia in or after 1755 and returned to Plymouth/Turnchapel (a tiny village opposite Plymouth) between 1755-1798 when John was born in England. Then JOSEPH’s 5 descendants left Plymouth for New Brunswick (or Nova Scotia?) in 1824 and from there, to PEI. Does anyone have a similar history about Fishers in Acadia before 1755?

Incredibly, I have an internet picture-painting of the actual house and dock-yard of JOSEPH FISHER painted in 1820, at the exact time he and his wife and 5 sons were living there! The painter must have been on JOSEPH’s property and met his family. You can’t get any better than that. E-mail me for a copy and other Fisher documents and photographs.

John Richard Groom married June 18, 1924 to Marie-Rose Joncas in Charlo, Restigouche county, NB. They went to live in Montréal. On the marriage certificate, John Richard Groom parents are James and Eva Walsh of PEI. Eva was godmother for one of the kids in Montréal.

James and Eva Groom family appear on the 1901 PEI census.

It would be interesting to know why both brothers were adopted by Jon Garrett and Bridget-Hélène Driscoll.

Hector McPberson, a native of Prince Edward's Island age twenty seven years, lost his life under peculiar circumstances. He was employed in the shop of Mr. William Sobst, blacksmith. and at the close of his week's labor, as was his custom, went to take a bath. Two persons standing on the wharf observed that McPherson, in diving, remained an unusual length of time under water, and desiring to lend assistance in case of necessity, procured a boat and brought him to the surface in a few minutes. Mr. McPherson when placed in his room was thoroughly conscious, but the unfortunate man must have irreparably injured his spinal chord, for he remained in full possession of his faculties though completely paralyzed, until ten o'clock yesterday morning, when be expired. Deceased served in the Federal army during tbe war, and was among the party who, despite imminent risk of life, spiked and rendered useless guns at Harper's Ferry, when it was abandoned by Gen. Banks.

NOTE: I find a Hector McPherson in the PEI Baptismal Site - born May 7, 1840 to Donald McPherson and Margaret McMillan - who seems to fit. This is Flat River area - St. John's Presbyterian Church Belfast.

GOULD
I am looking for information about my ggrandfather, Charles Gould, born 17 March ??. His father was Samuel Gould, Lot 27, Bedeque, later moved to Summerside. I visited Summerside/PEI in August and found a lot of information about some of Charles' brothers and sisters, but not much about him. I know that he ran away to sea when he was 14 or 15, later settling in Liverpool, England where he married my ggrandmother, Hannah Wilson Grayson. My grandmother, Hannah Lauretta Gould was their 4th child born in 1870, the year he got his Masters Certificate. There are two listings in the PEI Ships Arrival/Departures Database. His ship was the ETHEL BLANCHE sailing on 24 May, 1879 from PEI to Rouen,France. It lists Chas. Gould, Captain. The ship was built by Edwin Coffin of Mt. Stewart and owned by The Peakes of Charlottetown, PEI. Any further information will be appreciated.

I am interested in learning any information about the McIsaac family of Wood Islands -descendants of ARCHIBALD MC ISAAC (born in 1820 or 1821-birth place unknown to me). Archibald had 13 children (all with the last name of McIsaac)

John (Born April 25,1849) Donald (June 17 1850) Catherine (March 25,1852)
Malcolm (December 3,1853) Mary Ann (Jan.6,1856) Alex John (Aug.29,1857)
Joseph Archibald ( Oct.5,1859) Mary Ann (July 8,1861) twins, Francis Xavier (my great grandfather) and Margaret Isabell (Sept. 3,1863) Mercilla (Nov.13,1865) Peter Angus (Jan.5,1868)
Dan Joseph (1876)

I would be interested in learning anything about the family. I would love to know who Archibald's wife-the BRAVE mother of all (but maybe the youngest) of these children was. I'd love to know where the family lived. I know from the census reports that it was in the 62nd Lot Area, but I would like to know precisely where. Also, I'd like to know if there are any descendants still living in the area. I'm looking forward to hearing from anyone who may be able to help me out. Thank you.

Unfortunately the records of family note her last name as McDonnell or McDonald, she went by Mae, and her actual name is Mary C. My grandfather's birth certificate lists her as Mary C. McDonnell from PEI, born in 2.15.1876 and dies in MA in 1924. She married John F. Bishop (1871-1961) and i have located them in 1920 in Lynn MA. He is suppose to be from Nova Scotia or Newfoundland, but again not able to locate anything concrete. The 1920's census notes their immigration date to the united states in 1895. It is possible the Bishop line also hales from PEI through John's father: Richard (James) bishop (1836).

Can you provide any leads to the actual last name and other links, such as parents?

Thank you

GALLANT
Hello, I do hope you can help. I've tried Ancestry.com and the Official PEI Records but with no success. I am John Albert Gallant and I am trying to locate my Gallant family.

My father, John Ernest Albert Gallant b1931 Wellington PEI left the family when my brother Gord and I were quite young and we have had no contact since. I was advised my father passed away last year and I now have his effects.

I have learned he was the son of Alphee Gallant (1904-1941) and Rosie (Maddix?)(1907-1994). Alphee is buried at Summerside, Rosie at Mont Carmel. I never met them. I do remember meeting two of my father's brothers, Rene and Fred. Fred was one of only a handful of war amps to live on PEI. Sadly he too passed away within the last few years.

Does anyone have any knowledge of this side of the Gallant family please? My brother Gord is in care and when he passes, I shall have no known living relative. Any help you can give would be so much appreciated. Thank you, John.

MARGARET (KENNEDY) MORSE
I am trying to compile a geneology of the Morse family and I want to know who Margaret (nee Kennedy) Morse's parents were. All I know is that she was from PEI, no City or county, just the province. She was born 1812 and died 1904, she married Major Morse (I belive Major is his first name and not his title) who was born in 1802 and died in 1894. after she married Major Morse the couple moved to Paradise, NS where the groom's family came as planters. They had a few children but the child that concerns me is Samuel Kennedy Morse.
What I am trying to do (other than find her parents) is take her family to whichever group of immigrants came to Canada for her, whether she is a planter family or an older family. Thank you very Much, looking forward to hearing about her.

CALLAGHAN
I am in the process of tracing my grandmother's roots. The only thing I know is her name was Mary Callahan. She had a sister, Clara Callaghan. Mary ran away from home due to being poor and came to Massachusetts. She was born in or around 1883. Her father's name was Richard and her mother was Mary (Foster). Richard would have passed away somewhere around 1900. I know that Mary Foster Callaghan died when my grandmother was very young and she and her sister were sent to live with a grandmother.

If anyone has anything even remotely connected with this, I would really appreciate a message. This is all the information I have at this time regarding the family.

Re: Coats of Arms of Family Crests

I have been deluged yet again with inquiries about our family's "Coat of Arms" or "Family Crest". As far as I know, there is no such a thing in existence that would be attributed to our family of Haché of Haché-Gallant or Gallant. Yet I keep seeing one from time to time. There generous people who have submitted these to me inform me that they have spent some of their hard earned money to a Heraldry firm who (wouldn't you know it?) just happened to have a lineage for them ... an entire family tree. In addition the lineage had nothing to do with Michel Haché-Gallant or his wife Anne-Marie Cormier. Isn’t THAT interesting? This is a warning to you all because I hate it when folks waste money on organizations that prey on the good people who are in search of their roots. Most of the Heraldry associations feed on that premise exactly. Theirs is the substance of fun and games, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, although they won’t tell you that. They get some of their names from old census records, online unsubstantiated histories and even phone books and create a history, almost like a palm reader. What you are getting is bunk. Searching for ones roots, although rewarding and fascinating, is often a long, drawn out, arduous, pain-staking work in progress of dedication and is not without the investment of much time and money to acquire documents of birth, death, marriage, baptism etc from bonified sources. I know this personally. Do not be fooled into thinking that for a mere $35.00 (or there abouts) that someone is going to do it for you. Please read the following excerpt below to understand what I am talking about. I wish you luck in finding your roots and I would never wish to discourage anyone, but please ... please think before you invest money in a Heraldry club or association thinking that you will find where it is that you come from.

Please read the following excerpt from a book by Angus Baxter, one of North America’s leading genealogists, for the explanation as to why the subject of a Coat Of Arms is so controversial.

"Do not be led astray by advertisements offering you a coat of arms and a family history, or believe this will be a short cut to a family tree. It is very unlikely you or your family have any right to a coat of arms. The right to one was granted by the ruler of a country and was usually given to titled families or owners of large estates who had rendered some service to the ruler. Most of us are descended from farmers or farm workers and our ancestors were too busy and hard working to be bothered with frills of this kind; nor, indeed, were they in a position to qualify for such a grant. All you will get for your money is a coat of arms originally granted a long time ago to someone with a similar surname to yours. The odds are very much against that person being your ancestor, and, in any case, a coat of arms only descends from eldest son to eldest son."

Thank you very much and best of luck.

MORRISON CHANDLER
My paternal grandmother was Louise Chandler Morrison, daughter of Hugh T. and Agnes (Chandler) Morrison. Hugh T. Morrison was born on PEI December 1843 and died in (probably) Chicago between 1910-1920. His parents were both born in Nova Scotia.

Agnes Chandler was born May 1847 in New Brunswick. Her father was born on Cape Breton and her mother on PEI.

Hugh T. and Agnes were married about 1868-70 and may have lived for a time on PEI. Their first son, Russell Morrison, was born there about 1871-2. The last record I have for Russell is the 1980 census, when he was but 8 years of age and with his family in Wisconsin.

Hugh T. was a traveling Campbellite minister. Their second son, Charles Clayton Morrison (see Wikipedia) was born in Ohio December 1874 and died in 1966.

Their third son, Hugh Tucker Morrison (M.D., Th.D.) was born 23 May 1877 in Michigan and died Feb 1973.

Their daughter Louise Chandler Morrison was born in Michigan 10 Sep 1880 and died in Evanston, Cook County, Illinois June 1974.

I have the spouses and most (if not all) the grandchildren, but am looking for additional ancestors and descendants. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

AN ISLAND REFUGE REPRINTED!
Monday on the way to work, I picked up 200 copies of "An Island Refuge" from the printers. It is now finally ready. I only have to pick up shipping envelopes, then determine postage costs, and then I will begin selling them on behalf of the Abegweit Branch, United Empire Loyalist Association. The price will be $40.00 plus the postage cost CDN or USD. If you are on the Island and pick it up from me, it will only be the $40.00. I will carry a box of them in the car with me. I will be doing more with this this week, and hopefully by Friday can give you full ordering information. For those of you who are new to the Register and to this newsletter, transcribing this book, and putting it in computer format was a project of the Island Register and a number of its users. Many hours went into the work on it, and as a result of our efforts, it is finally back in print. Now, with its new computer format correcting errors in the book will be much easier and can be done between printings. The original book was printed using plates, long lost through the years. The overall quality of the reprint is good, and the Branch is proud to be able to offer it again. To begin with orders will by necessity be cash or cheque, but as I get the time, I will be setting up a Paypal payment system. Ordering details will be available hopefully by the by the end of the week.

I will also be updating the book listing on the book review page and on the UEL page as I find time to reflect this new printing. This has been a very long term project - much longer than it should have been, and I am pleased to announce its availability once again!

MACGREGOR/MACLENNAN
My great-great grandfather was Farquhar "Frank" MacGregor born in 1843 in Prince Edward Island, although I believe the baptismal index for St. Johns Belfast lists 1844. He was the oldest son of Alexander Mac/McGregor and Ann MacLennan, both from Scotland. He also had a younger brother, Alexander MacGregor who married Mary Beaton as well as two older sisters: Ann and Christy who married Angus MacRae. I recently found on the PEIGS website that his parents (Alex & Ann) died in 1846 according to the cemetery transcriptions for Valleyfield Cemetery. I was very curious to see if there was any possible way to find out what happened that both of Farquhar's parents died at a fairly young age and in the same year. This also happened to be the year his brother Alexander was born. I found mention of the "McGregor Orphans" in the 1849 Pauper's Report. Additionally, there was mention that one of the children was placed with John McPhee?? Any info surrounding the circumstances of their death or even just this family at all would be immensely appreciated.

SUTHERLAND/McKAY
I am looking for information on the ancestors of Donald Sutherland and Euphemia McKay. Donald was born at sea c. Jun 1816 and Euphemia was born in Scotland c.1819.
They were apparently married in the New London area in the early 1840's and had 3 children born in New London and baptised at St. John's Presbyterian, Belfast; Hugh McKay in Apr 1843, Janet McIntosh in Feb 1845 and George William in Dec 1847.
The family moved to Woodstock, Ontario around 1848 where 5 additional children were born between 1848 and 1860. Euphemia died in Apr 1870 in Thamesford, ON and Donald died in Apr 1879 in Thamesford.
I believe Hugh's daughter, Nellie, may be my great grandmother, but I'm having difficulty in filling in blank years between the 1871 census and my grandmother's birth in 1888 so any information might be helpful.

MASTERS MCLEAN
need info on William Masters (1850-1915) and wife Mary Ann McLean (1840-1902). I find them in the 1881 census in Charlottetown with their 2 year old daughter Harriet (my husband's grandmother). They emigrated to Boston about 1883. In 1881 census of Charlottetown, they also have living with them 18 yr old Daniel McLean and 24 yr old Mary J. McLean. Who are they? possibly siblings or offspring of Mary Ann? in the US 1900 census, it says that she had 6 children total, with 5 living at the time of the census. Only Harriet came to the US and she was thought to be an only child. At Mary Ann's 1902 death, her parents were listed as Laughlin McLean and Catherine McKay. We have no information on William Masters, but would love to gain some. does he fit into anyone's research?

MC/MACDONALD
Still trying to find my McDonald PEI roots – from 1840, Charlottetown.

This is from: The Harvard Graduates' Magazine

Dr. James Athanasius McDonald, m '1866, one of the oldest physicians in Charlestown, MA died there Dec. 8, 1910, of pneumonia. He was seventy years old. His son, James A. McDonald, Jr., '04, a lawyer, died a week before. Dr. McDonald was a member of the Legislature from the old city of Charlestown in 1886, a member of the Charlestown School Board from 1869 to 1873, and for 18 years a member of the Boston School Board. He had lived in the Bunker Hill district since he came from his native place in the early sixties. He was born in Charlottetown, P. E. I., May 2, 1840, the son of Ronald and Mary (McDonald) McDonald, both of whom were descendants of Highland pioneers who, after the battle of Culloden, were forced, on account of their devotion to the Stuart cause and their adherence to the Catholic Church, to emigrate to Canada. Dr. McDonald attended the schools of his native place, later studying at St. Dunstan's College. He was a graduate of the Prince of Wales College. After three years spent in teaching he entered Harvard Medical School, graduating in 1866. Immediately after taking his degree he settled in Charlestown and began the practice of medicine. It was largely through Dr. McDonald's able efforts as chairman of the committee on drawing that the present system of art instruction in the Boston public schools was made possible. As surgeon of the Ninth Infantry he was connected with the Mass. Volunteer Militia from 1870 to 1874. Dr. McDonald was a member of many societies, including the Harvard Medical Society, Mass. Medical and Gynecological Society, Catholic Union of Boston, the Catholic Literary Union of Charlestown (of which he was president, 1895 to 1899), the Holy Name Society of St. Mary's Church, Charles- town; he was also president of the conference of St. Vincent de Paul Society connected with St. Mary's Parish. He was a former member of the Clover Club, the Bostonian Society, and the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company. He was also a charter member of Hamilton Court, M. C. O. F., and physician for a Charlestown lodge of the A. O. U. W., and Clan Stuart of Charlestown. He married Anne Sprague, daughter of Rufus and Mary (Ford) Sprague of Charlestown. Dr. McDonald leaves a widow, two sons. Dr. W. J., m '99. and Dr. L. R. McDonald, а '01, and a daughter, Anna MacDonald.

ALEXANDER MURCHISON
I've been trying very hard to find imformation on how my ancestor, Alexander Murchison first immigrated from Scotland. I am wondering if there is any chance that he may have immigrated on the Polly 1803. He was born 25Dec1776. The first mention of him was in New Brunswick when he enlisted in the 104th regiment in(I believe) 1804-Saint John New Brunswick. On the passenger list of the Polly an Alexander Murchison was listed (I believe as #40 or #41) just before a Donald Murchison his wife, Ann McGillviary,and their children. The youngest of their children was listed as Alexander Murchison. However, this Alexander Murchison was just a young infant at the time. On the 1851 Census in New Brunswick, Alexander's father was named John. Donald Murchison (above) had a brother, John. Is it possible or known if the Alexander Murchison first recorded on the passenger list could have in fact been Donald's nephew who had traveled to the new country with his uncle? If he was born in 1776, then he would have been abt. 27 years old. It doesn't make since that the passenger list would first record the name of the youngest child of a family first followed by a list of their parents and their children-once again naming them. I've looked at other possibilities. There are a number of Murchisons that immigrated in the 1700s to the southern states. i.e. No. Carolina. I've spent many hours, actually several years trying to figure this out. If anyone has anything that could help I'd appreciate it. It's important to me. Thanks!

MILLINGTON
MILLINGTON
I have been trying for a few years to discover something about my Great Uncles life on PEI. His name was William 'Bill' Millington and he was a British Home Child.
He was sent from England at age 12 years in 1896. He married twice, firstly to Myrtle Baker, and then to Daisy(Margaret) who had previously been married to Alfred Chappelle of Charlottetown.
He died in 1964.
There must be someone who knows something. Someone must have arranged his funeral. He was buried at Church of Scotland Cape Traverse. I would love to obtain his death cert if anyone can help with this.
He lived with William McDonald when he first arrived up until he left I think to get married. Family lore says that he had a good upbringing and was in public life in a small way.
I know he owned some land and that he also worked for the railway.
One day I would like to visit PEI but I want to know more about William first so that I can see where he was etc.
I paid a genealogist to try to discover more who was very good but only got so far and I want to know more. I would be very grateful for any help.

Land Deed Research
I would like to research the land that my ancestors lived on in Lots 46 and 47 in the early 1800s. I have the old map with their names on it (Stewart, Young, Leet). I believe some of them owned the land outright in the early 1800's.

If I don't know who owns the land now, how do I go about finding the old deeds? I plan on being in PEI to do this research. I'd like to do this myself, but if there is someone who specializes in these kinds of searches, perhaps that is an option.

Any suggestions of any kind will be greatly appreciated.

Annie MacDonald was born in 1859 and died August 8, 1920 at North Granville and is buried at the North Granville Cemetery. She was married to George Mallett of North Granville. There was also a connection to the Burns family, so I am also assuming that a sister might have married into the Burns family and they eventually moved to the Edmonton, Alberta region. There must also have been brothers as some of their descendents lived in the Edmonton region. The family don't seem to have originated from the Lot 21 region.

MAHAR/MAHER/MEAGHER
The History of Darnley mentions my Maher family and indicates that their property is (or was in 1982 when the book was published) one of the PEI Century Farms, and shows a few pictures of family members.

Does this Century Farm still exist as such? Are there any particular historical records kept anywhere due to its status? Where might I look for such records? Can the farm be visited?

The earlest Maher on the island in my family, Edward MAHAR is my gr gr grandfather (1790-1875). He is reported as having arrived from Queens Co in the late 1830's.

His son Edward Jr is my gr grandfather, and Edw Jr's son John is my grandfather.

The article says that Edw Jr's 3 children, John, his brother James, and his sister Margaret were raised in Darnley by their grandparents. I'd like to know why?

It also indicates that all 3 settled off the island. From my own research, I know that John went to Bangor, Maine where he died in 1924. He had married a Catherine McAleer who had gone to Bangor from Hope River. In his US records, John claimed to be from Indian River.

Does anyone know where James and Margaret went when they left PEI?

Does anyone have any deeper information than that in The History of Darnley?

I have some information that Edw Sr's wife was an Elizabeth Shiels. Any information about her would also be greatly appreciated!

AULD
Hello out there. We are still looking for the "missing link".
My husband's grandfather was Isaac Murray Auld, born 6-06-1866 in West Eleanors. He married Flora Ann Linkletter. She was born about 1875 PEI. Her younger brother as Albert, born about 1894 PEI.

What relationship does Covehead PEI have to West Eleanors. Is there any information about John Auld, died Covehead PEI Sept. 7, 1842?

Is there a list of names of children , perhaps school records, for a Robert Auld family, head of house in the St Johns census dated 1798, lot 34? or his wife's name?

Are there any records dating from the late 1600"s to mid 1700s? help! lb

McNeill
I am trying to find details of Alexander McDonald McNeill who was born in Charlottetown PEI approx 1829, possibly Jan 19,to Allan McNeill and Margaret McFadyen. He married in Australia in 1857. He was said to arrive in Australia in 1855.

I received a letter from St John's Lodge 27 years ago indicating Alexander McDonald McNeill, mercantile clerk, applied to join St John's Lodge #562 in Charlottetown, PEI in 1849. He was initiated, passed and raised that year. I have not been able to find out if his age and address were recorded.

I note that in Islander Oct,7,1870 an Allan McNeill's death was reported. Was he Alexander's father? Allan was said to be the oldest surviving member of St John's Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of PEI. He died in his 94th year.

The closest I have got to Alexander's birth record is a baptismal record from St John's Belfast from 1826. The mother's name is Ann and the birth is 3 years earlier than my dates would suggest. I also believe that this Alexander (McNeil) was still alive post 1860 in PEI, after my Alexander had left PEI!

How do I get access to the Lodge records? Does my Alexander have any connections to other McNeills in PEI? If he left PEI in 1850-1855 is there any way of tracing emmigration?

Grateful for any information or advice you may have.

PS I did email Rod Raper at St John's Lodge in August 2008 but I have not heard back from him and his email address is no longer accessible.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Richard McNeill Australia

MCKAY/MCKAY
Dr.John G MacKay, born March 1835 & supposed son of Donald MacKay and Elizabeth Graham died in Los Angeles, California bet. 1900 - 1910. He resided in Lot 21 in 1881 with wife 'Christy' and sons Calvin (21), Alfred/Albert (19) and Hugh (12). In 1900, he is widowed & residing with his brother James D and his family and with another son William Ross, born 18 Aug 1895 probably in Los Angeles (from a 2nd wife presumably).
I'm looking for information on his 1st wife. She is buried in Geddie Memorial Cemetery - MacKay: Christianna, w. of Dr. J. G. Mackay, d. May 12, 1891, Ae. 62.
Age may be a transcription error as Christy was age 41 in the 1881 census. She was presumably age 52.
Also if anyone knows who William Ross' mother might be would also be helpful.

The following record was also located which may be for John. It would appear to indicate that he died in Malpeque, but he was a resident of Los Angeles in 1900 and is buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Los Angeles, along with his brother James.

WOODS/HAMILTON/MCGINNIS
I am looking for information on my gggg-grandfather, Bartholomew Woods, and his family. Bartholomew was born in Ireland circa 1768-1798. He was a captain in the British army (possibly the King's Rangers) and was posted in Canada sometime prior to 1818. He was forbidden to return to Ireland for doing a favour for a Frenchman, and settled in P.E.I. (I don't know which lot). He married a Matilda Hamilton. They had two known children:

1. John Woods (may have married someone with last name Gillis; no other information known)
2. Daniel Leo Woods, born 1818 in P.E.I.. Married Joanna/JoAnn McGinnis (born circa 1820).

Daniel and Joanna had the following children: Alexander (b. circa 1839), Phineas Edward (b. April 1841, P.E.I.), Matilda (b. circa 1844), Sophia (b. circa 1847), James (b. circa 1849), Ambrose (b. circa 1851), Sarah (b. circa 1853), Daniel (b. circa 1857), Mary (b. circa 1860), John Leo (b.circa 1862). The family was living in Pugwash, Nova Scotia by 1860.

I have been unable to find any record of Bartholomew Woods or his wife, Matilda Hamilton. I am starting to wonder if he may have gone by the name "Daniel" (full name, perhaps, Bartholomew Daniel or Daniel Bartholomew) as I have found a mention in the King's Rangers muster roll of a Daniel Woods, discharged soldier, who settled in Prince Edward Island in 1784.

I am also looking for Joanna McGinnis's parents.

Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I think this could be my Husbands great grandfather but I keep finding nothing as to the father of James Duncan Somers born 1900-1972 in Pictou Nova Scotia.

I would like to know as much about them as possible. Their children, that I know of were my Great Grandfather, John (same name as his father), Margaret (maggie) Coughlin, and Will (william,Bill) Coughlin. Maggie and william never married.

ROBINSON
Looking for descendants of William Robinson and Bridget (or Mary) Ryan, married May 1831 St John’s Catholic Church, Newfoundland, both from Tipperary, Ireland. Witnesses: John Tobin & Joanna Cahill. Children baptized St John's Catholic Church, Newfoundland: Catherine 1832, James 1833, Thomas 1834, John 1839. Children born PEI and bapt St Augustin RC Church, South Rustico: Ellen 1841, William 1843, Patrick 1845. Edward was bapt 14 Jan 1849 St Dunstan’s Basilica, Charlottetown. The 1841 census PEI shows William Robinson, farmer and family Lot 57. William probably died 1852 Charlottetown. Bridget Robinson was found dead in the Roman Catholic burial ground, Charlottetown Nov 1861. Inquest held. Bridget was then living at the home of John Walker at North River. An unnamed son resided with Charles Higgins, Cove Head.

Children - Capt James Robinson (master mariner), Catherine and William Robinson, went to New Zealand. They were Protestant, Catherine being a member of the Bible Christian Church, Charlottetown Dec 1863 prior to leaving on the "Pakeha" for NZ with her brother James who was living at St Peter's Road, Charlottetown. Patrick was a minister of a church (denomination unknown). Nothing known of Thomas, John, Ellen or Edward Robinson. Any information gratefully received.

PICTOU ISLAND
I have corresponded with many by email at some point over the past ten years regarding the genealogy of persons who have lived on Pictou island or who have Pictou Island connections. My research is about to bear fruit, as I am now completing a history of Pictou Island and its residents, which I hope to have published by the 200th anniversary events in August. Publication details are still a moving target.

The book is intended to include all persons on Pictou Island between its initial settlement about 1819 and the 1911 Canadian census – as well as their known descendents who were born before about 1930. Persons born after 1930 are generally not being included for privacy reasons. There will probably over 800 individuals. Most readers with Pictou Island roots should be able to identify a parent or grandparent, which will take them to preceding generations, in some cases for six or seven generations. Where possible, the book will also include the Scottish ancestry and origins of the original settlers, especially the MacCallums, MacDonalds, MacLeans, McFarlanes and Pattersons. It will also address the Prince Edward Island families from Wood Islands/White Sands/Little Sands/Murray Harbour/Murray River who settled on Pictou Island in the late 1800’s through about 1920.

I am soliciting the assistance of anyone who is interested in making the book more personal, rather than being in part a recitation of the facts relating to our various ancestors. (I have no pretense as to it being as lively as Jim Turple's "Memories of Pictou Island.") I would be grateful if anyone has photographs of Pictou Island or its residents that they would contribute for publication. Photos of the various residents (especially the ‘formal’ portraits that many people had before World War I), as well as photos s that show daily life and activities on Pictou Island – the type of photos that you see in the little books dealing with the history of particular communities – would be especially useful.

I am also interested in family bibles or other family papers that cover immigration from Scotland , births/deaths/marriages before 1910, or the out migration of Pictou Islanders to other areas. For example, Catherine Ann McDonald died in 1915; does anyone know what happened to the receipt for her passage from Tobermory (on Mull in Scotland), that was mentioned in her obituary – “Miss MacDonald was born in Scotland and the receipt for money paid for the passage of the family by her father, from Tobermory, to this side of the water, is still preserved by descendents. Deceased was an aunt of Mssrs. Daniel and George MacDonald."

Lastly, most of us with Pictou Island ancestry or connections have heard stories about the Island and our ancestors: where they went, what they did, and the peculiarities of daily life. In my family’s case, research has substantiated many of the stories my father told me about his grandfather, who was born in 1835; this makes his discussion much more alive. Similar family stories or information about the Pictou Islanders – which probably cannot be found in public records would make the book more interesting would be very helpful.

Thanks,

Ken MacCallum

It is possible that she had a sister, Elizabeth Viola and a brother, Maurice. She emmigrated to the US in the early 1900's and married Roy Alexander Flowers. She died in Massachusetts in 1946. Roy was married to an Elizabeth and a Mary. They may be the same woman or they may be sisters. I don't know. I have records that state he is married to an Elizabeth V.

Hello everyone,

I am hoping someone out there may have info on the Thomas and Anna Belle Donovan family. They were both born on PEI. I don't have any documentation on them since all records were lost in a fire at a church in PEI. There is no grave marker that I am aware of since Thomas was buried a pauper. The information I do have is that Thomas was a sailor and that he drank a lot. Anna Belle was a cook and they had a daughter named Esther who moved to MA and married John McArdle of Lowell. I am hoping to find out who their parents are and where they came from. Right now I am completely stumped on how to continue.

JAMIESON
Hello, first I would like to thank all the kind folk who answered my previous queries. I appreciate your time and effort. I am posting this time to ask a few more questions. I am the granddaughter of Catherine Jamieson who was the daughter of John Jamieson and Catherine Oldis. My great great grandparents were Donald Jamieson and Mary Eleanor Murphy. I am planning my first trip to PEI with my family. This is quite exciting for me as my father, Catherine's son, was never able to make this trip. I think someone sent me information stating Donald Jamieson's home no longer stands. I was wondering if someone could give me directions to where that had been, so I could drive by. I am also wondering if John and Catherine Jamieson's home still stands? I would like to be able to drive by that also. I know on the map Jamieson Lane is across from Oldis Rd, so I plan on visiting that area. Are there any special places a Jamieson descendent should see while there? I do plan on visiting St Paul's cemetery. I have a partial list of family members buried there. Are there any nice places to stay in Montague? I know my husband and teenage sons will want to golf, see the beaches, etc but I am especially interested in just seeing the island where my grandmother was born.
Thank you in advance for any information you can give me,

According to a story from my grandfather, my great-great-grandmother moved to Souris PEI with her two children after the death of her husband. After much searching I've found them listed in the 1881 Census for Township 45. It took so long because the name Forbrigger is quite rare and I've found it spelled almost a dozen different ways in various records. In the Census my g-g-grandmother's daughter is listed as 12 years old and going to school. I was wondering if there are school registers or other records for that time period. I would like to establish approximately how long they may have lived there.

Sons and Daughters of the Maritime Provinces
Newspaper: The San Francisco Call
Issue Date: 1904-10-14

Natives of Maritime Provinces Found Social Order in Oakland

Oakland, Oct. 13 - An organization known as the Sons and Daughters of the Maritime Provinces has just been formed in Oakland by those who came from outside the precincts of this State. The new society will extend it's influence throughout California.

The maritime provinces are those sections of Canada that border upon the Atlantic Ocean,and all natives of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island are entitled to membership. Two hundred and twenty of those who came from those three provinces have been found in and about Oakland, and they have banded themselves together for mutual help and advancement. It is intended to give all those who come from those sections of Canada an opportunity to associate themselves with the new organization, and those who wish to affiliate may communicate with W. H. Bull, the secretary, at 951 Washington street, this city.

The idea of the organization was originated by H. C. Tupper. The following gentlemen and ladies have been placed in charge of the destinies of the new society: President, H. C. Tupper; vice president W. L. Dimmick; secretary, W. H. Bull; financial secretary, F. Smith; treasurer, Captain J. H. O'Brien; chairman of the social committee, Miss Margaret Annand; executive committee (in addition to the officers), Rev. Fred Johnstone and Rev. Richmond Logan.

COUGHLIN
I am looking for my gg grandfather, Thomas Coughlin born 1810 in Ireland. He came to United States before 1860. I can not find a passenger's list with his name on it even when looking for the varation in spelling. So maybe he came through Canada to VT. First census I find him in is 1860 Springfield,VT. He then married my gg grandmother Mary Cady Belknap about 1860 and moved to Weathersfield/Cavenish,VT and settled there on a farm. They had 6 children before he died in 1876. Does anyone have any info on this man or is there family out there that would like to contact me and fill in my blank spaces with this part of my family. Thanks for your help......

I'm new to this quest, but I'm very interested in my McLean ancestors. I have traced them back to Lot 64.

This is what I have:

Catherine McLean, daughter of Neil and Ann McDonald McLean born September 19, 1839 and baptized in St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Belfast, PEI( Book 2, P. 117). She was born in Cape Bear (Lot 64, King’s County). The 1841 PEI census lists a Neil McLean Lot 64 with 1 son and 1 dgt under 16, 3 individuals were born in PEI and 1 in the British Colonies. No other info available.

Can anyone shed further light on "my people"?

ELLIS, MC ARTHUR
I need help finding the parents of John ELLIS and Flora MC ARTHUR. I can find both ELLIS and MC ARTHUR families in PEI but none seem to include the couple listed below.

On 10 Oct 1833, at Richmond, John ELLIS, bachelor, (Lot 11) married Flora MC ARTHUR, spinster, (Lot 16) by license from the Lieut. Governor. Witnesses were Alexander MC ARTHUR and John CAMPBELL.

Flora's death record, 20 Feb 1883, in Boston, MA, USA, states that her parents were Dougal MC ARTHUR and Elizabeth.

John's death record, 16 Dec 1891, in Boston, MA, USA, states that he was born in England of English parents.

I have found 10 children of John and Flora, all born on PEI, beginning with George Henry ELLIS, (b. 29 Feb 1840; m.Catherine MC DONALD, 30 DEC 1867, Halifax, NS; d. 6 July 1924, Lonsdale, RI, USA). The other children are Caroline (b. abt 1843; m. Robert WEBSTER,19 Dec 1860, PEI; d. after 1920, MA, USA), James S. (b.8 Jan 1844; m. Agnes C. ?(Russell), abt 1864; d. 10 Sept 1912, Pawtucket, RI, USA), Agnes (b. Oct 1845; m. James BRANDER, 31 Jan 1866, PEI; d. 1 June 1923, Everett, MA, USA), Lydia Jane (b. 2 Aug 1847; m. Edward CARROL, 23 Aug 1864, Richmond, PEI; d. 11 June 1929, Everett, MA, USA), Robert Henry (b. 28 Sept 1848; m. Mary E Cole, 6 July 1880, Boston, MA, USA; d. 21 Oct 1894), John (b. 7 Nov 1852; m. Charlotte Cannon, 23 June 1879, Boston, MA, USA;), Joseph Cooper (b. 7 July 1854), Herbert William (b. 23 Aug 1858; m. Josephine V. Kenney, 14 Oct 1879, Boston, MA, USA), Laura Catherine (b. 7 Oct 1858; m. Charles William HOLMES, 5 June 1878, Boston, MA, USA; d. 24 May 1898, Everett, MA, USA).

The entire family seems to have moved to Massachusetts and Rhode Island in the 1870s; the only member I cannot find there is Joseph Cooper ELLIS.

Who and where are John and Flora's parents? Were Flora's parents born on PEI or in Scotland? Is John a cousin of the ELLIS shipbuilding family? Are there any other children born to this couple, particularly before George Henry? And what happened to Joseph?

Thank you for your help.

Hi:

I am searching for information on Catherine "Kate" Timmons, born in the early 1900's at Mount Stewart, PEI. She was the daughter of John David Timmons and Irene Dwyre of Mount Stewart. I was told by someone from PEI that she married a gentleman from Fort Augustus, PEI (didn't know his name). Would there be any married record of Catherine "Kate" Timmons probably in the late 1920's or early 1930's for that area or surrounding area of PEI? Would there be any descendants of Catherine "Kate" Timmons and her husband family living in Fort Augustus or surrounding area of PEI? Also looking for information of John David Timmons and Irene Dwyre others three children born in Mount Stewart: Lorraine, Gilbert and Harry. I was told that Gilbert and Harry moved away during the Second World War. Would appreciate any help and information what may be found. Hope to hear from somebody soon.

In September 1902 he married a Mary Woolf and in the NEHGS record it states that he was from Mt. Stewart, PEI. They had 9 children. We think his father was Edward L. (Lorenzo?????) Parsons - an engineer of a ferry boat????? Joseph's mother was a Mary Anne McKenna and we know nothing of her except that she is PEI born. A cousin named Arthur Daniel Parsons, born August 20, 1877, lived with Edward and Mary and their son Joseph. Don't know of any siblings.

MILLINGTON
I have been trying for a few years to discover something about my Great Uncles life on PEI. His name was William 'Bill' Millington and he was a British Home Child.
He was sent from England at age 12 years in 1896. He married twice, firstly to Myrtle Baker, and then to Daisy who had previously been married to Alfred Chappelle of Charlottetown.
He died in 1964.
There must be someone who knows something. Someone must have arranged his funeral. He was buried at Church of Scotland Cape Traverse. I would love to obtain his death cert if anyone can help with this.
He lived with William McDonald when he first arrived up until he left I think to get married. Family lore says that he had a good upbringing and was in public life in a small way.
I know he owned some land and that he also worked for the railway.
One day I would like to visit PEI but I want to know more about William first so that I can see where he was etc.
I paid a genealogist to try to discover more who was very good but only got so far and I want to know more. I would be very grateful for any help.

I am wondering if anyone has any further info on John O'Neil - tracing him back to Ireland/England/Britain ...?As well, any thing on Margaret Poor/Power. In Census documents, were there families actually called Poors? or is that just a mispelling of Power?

PEIGS Lecture on Dembo Suckles:
The PEI Genealogical Society is pleased to host a lecture in association with the Beaconsfield Historic House on Thursday, February 26. Diane Whitcomb from Denver, Colorado will be the guest speaker and her talk is entitled "Researching Dembo in the American Revolutionary Period". Whitcomb is a descendant of black slave Dembo Suckles who lived in Georgetown (lot 59) in the late 1700s. She has compiled a genealogy about the Suckles family that also includes research on other early Island families - the Creeds, the Princes and the Higgins. David Higgins and his brother Cornelius were two of the earliest English settlers on the Island. Her talk will explore whether Dembo Suckles ever belonged to PEI's David Higgins and will also look at Dembo's possible whereabouts from 1767-1782 when he is found in the home of William Creed in Providence, Rhode Island. The lecture takes place at 7:30pm, February 26 in Beaconsfield's Carriage House, located at the corner of West and Kent Streets in Charlottetown. Admission is by donation and light refreshments will be served.

I have mentioned Dembo several times in the past in the Island Register newsletter and can't help being fascinated by his life and accomplishments, and the legacy he left behind for his many descendants. He was a remarkable man who came to be very highly respected by his community.

MacNaught History Centre and Archives invites all PEI Genealogical Society members and other readers of this newsletter to visit Wyatt Heritage Properties and experience the range of services and amenities we offer. Also check us out online at http://www.wyattheritage.com/ where we sport a new look webpage.

Admission to the MacNaught History Centre and Archives is free.

Watch for more details on our Genealogy for Beginners course spread over 6 Saturdays from March 28 to May 9. (no class Easter Saturday April 11) Email fredhorne [at] wyattheritage.com or call 902-432-1332 for information or to put your name on the list to attend -this may be the perfect time to introduce some friends to the rewarding hobby of Genealogy! The course offering will be a slightly condensed version of the course designed by Bill and Elizabeth Glen for the PEI Genealogy Society and it will be offered at MacNaught History Center and Archives so after less than 3 hours of presentation the rest of the day will be free to practice your research at the Centre.

Watch for more details on our Genealogy Conference to be held October 1st to 3rd this year! Yes, this year, our big event is coming up fast. We hope that the high profile speakers and topics will be of interest to a wide range of family history enthusiasts and genealogists from all over the Maritimes and beyond. During Heritage Week February 16th to 20th we will announce all the details of what to expect in October. In some ways it will be two conferences in one as we plan an exciting selection of cultural activities for the spouses and significant others of the genealogy add**ts. Or perhaps it will be the perfect thing for the whole family to do if a genealogy session is just not up to your level. Ambitious or not, you might say we want to put the 'family' back into family history.

Within the past several months we held a successful Genealogy Day, launched a new look (and new content) for our Membership Service - now called http://www.peiancestry.com - and continued to respond to requests for genealogical information on Island families.

On October 18 we raised the profile of genealogy by holding a Genealogy Day. Activities included an introductory to Genealogical research session at MacNaught History Centre and Archives in the morning. At 1:00 pm we welcomed visitors to the Wyatt Heritage Properties' Lefurgey Cultural Centre for a 'scavenger hunt' where participants tried to guess the identities of Summerside-connected personalities from the past. An eclectic crowd it was ranging from Gene MacLellan to Honourable Thane Campbell to Elaine Harrison. Each character was depicted and provided 'clues to their identity' in a separate room of the house. The Summerside Katimavik group of young people from across Canada played the mystery guests - complete with costumes. After all the guesswork was finished all stayed on for a special meting of the PEI Genealogical Society held in the beautifully restored ball room of the Lefurgey Cultural Centre. Guest Speaker Glenda Coughlin treated everyone to a passionate information-packed talk on her research work capturing the names of Islanders in the US census.

Watch the News and Events section of our webpage http://www.wyattheritage.com/mainsite3/index.asp for further information.


Thank you to the PEI Genealogical Society for all the continuing support and for this opportunity to update society members.

Hi All
In Saturday, 31/01/2009 edition of the Globe and Mail, the odituaries is for Mollie Gillen. She is descended from John Small of Australia.
He had been a British Marine, discharged in the 1780s, to become a highway robber. He was shipped to Australia in 1787 for his efforts.
One of the prominent PEIers was John Small MacDonald of West River. He was named after a John Small who had been in the military with his father. Does anyone know if these 2 John Smalls was the same person?

West
Hi,

I am looking for any information on descendants of Clement West. Clement arrived in 1895 from England. He sailed on the Carthaganian ship from Liverpool England on 15th June 1895. He was only 7/8 years old

He appears on the PEI 1901 census as a "domestic". There is a possibility he married a lady named Margaret Annie Matheson.

Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated. Clement is my great grandmothers brother, and he was seperated from his birth family and sent to your country via Middlemore Childrens homes project

Regards

GASS, John - Obituary
Just found this obituary from "The Times." Not sure where he died - it's unclear.

Times, The (United Kingdom); 03/17/2005

Section: Features, Obituary, pg. 64


John Gass, ophthalmologist, was born on August 2, 1928. He died on February
26, 2005, aged 76.

Eye specialist whose innovative treatment of retina damage saved sight for
thousands.

THE ophthalmologist John Gass was one of the world's leading experts on
diseases of the eye.

John Donald MacIntyre Gass was born in 1928 in Prince Edward Island, Canada,
and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. His father was director of tuberculosis
control for the state.

In 1946 Gass went to Vanderbilt University in Nashville to study science and
medicine. He received his bachelors degree in 1950 and his medical degree in
1957 (after serving with the US Navy in the Korean War, 1950-53). After an
internship at the University Hospital, Iowa City, he went to the Wilmer Eye
Institute at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, to complete a
residency in ophthalmology.

In 1963 he joined the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami
School of Medicine, where he became Professor of Ophthalmology in 1972. In 1995
he returned to Nashville to be professor emeritus in the department of
ophthalmology and visual sciences at the Vanderbilt School of Medicine.

His pioneering research into diseases of the retina and uvea, the pigment
bearing layer of the iris, led to treatments that have saved many tens of
thousands of people from blindness.

One of his important discoveries was that a stretching of tissue in the retina
produces holes in the macula, the highly sensitive area at the centre of the
retina responsible for detailed vision. Partial holes cause wavy, distorted and
blurred vision; patients with larger holes lose central vision entirely. Injury
and diseases can cause macular holes, but the most common cause is the ageing
process. Thanks to Gass's work the condition can now be cured in more than 90
per cent of cases.

Gass was a prolific writer. In addition to writing more than 270 articles, he
produced a classic text in his field, the two-volume Stereoscopic Atlas of
Macular Diseases: Diagnosis and Treatment, the most extensive coverage of
diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of macular disease available, now in its
fourth edition.

Gass helped to develop the use of fluorescein angiography, a diagnostic test
that traces a vegetable dye injected into blood vessels in the retina, to
reveal patterns of leaking from the vessels. The test identifies a form of
macular degeneration that occurs when abnormal blood vessels bleed under the
retina. The central vision may be permanently damaged.

Gass received numerous medals, honours and awards, including the Helen Keller
Prize for Vision Research (2001) and the Laureate Recognition Award of the
American Academy of Ophthalmology (2004). He was cited for outstanding
achievement by almost all the leading professional ophthalmology organisations
and by many academic institutions.

In 1999 he was chosen by 33,000 ophthalmologists around the world as one of
the 20th century's ten most influential ophthalmologists. For all these honours
he was a modest man, a humanitarian with a fine intellect, whose dedication won
the esteem of his colleagues. His students praised him as superb teacher.

His wife and four children survive him.

I really have enjoyed your site. I am researching the Ramsay family. I have made it back to William Ramsay (b. possibly Oct 4, 1855 in Elmsdale) m. Elizabeth I. (possibly Stewart) (b. abt. 1866). Back in 1881 they were living next to Archibald (b. abt. 1796) and Ellen (b. abt. 1801) Ramsay in Lot 4. (Alerton area). I don't know if this is Wm's father or grandfather. Wm. and the family moved to Boston, MA in 1893. Any info on this family would be greatly appreciated.

Your site has been so helpful, I want to share something with everyone. I want to share two links to PEI Directories I found at the website www.archive.org. This site is great and you can find thousands of old books, etc that have been scanned in full.

LANDERS and MCCLURE
Ohio again. Now I have Ralph Abner Landers born in Somerville, MA on September 23, 1873. His father was Stephen Landers from Nova Scotia. His mother is Isabella Adams who was born on Isle of Man, England. There are eight of their children mentioned.

Ralph A. Landers came to Toledo in 1902 and opened a branch plant of the Landers Brothers Company.

On January 28, 1902 he married Annetta McClure, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John McClure, "members of a prominent family of Prince Edward Island."

Three children are listed: John W. Landers (deceased); Robert G. born in Toledo in 1905 and Sarah Louise born in 1912.

It's my guess that Sara who married William A. Martin and Annetta are sisters or at least related.

DANIEL LIVINGSTONE (LOTS 13, 65)
I’m trying to trace the general movement of some of my ancestors and their relatives over time. In “The Livingston’s of Clyde River, Lot 31” there is a Daniel Livingstone listed:

“…Daniel (BIG DAN) LIVINGSTONE (Duncan3, Donald LIVINGSTON2, Donald1). Born in 1863 in Baltic Road, Lot 31, PEI and died in 1941. Buried in Burnside Pres. Church, Clyde River, PEI. Occupation: Farmer. Religion: Baptist >> Presbyterian. User ID: MP22273….” His wife is listed as “Agnes _______”.

I found in a c1925 atlas a Daniel Livingston living on 40 Acres in the Long Creek area of Lot 65 – a place listed as McNeill land on the Lake Map. In the 1925 atlas, his wife is listed as Anna McPhee. Is it possible that the Daniel in the Atlas is “Big Dan” – or was there another Daniel living in that area at the time, that doesn’t appear on the Clyde River list?

HISTORY - BRIG RAMBLER
I have read in several sources about the tragic wreck of the brig Rambler of Leith, at the Bay of Bulls in Newfoundland, on the 29th of October 1807. Among the 138 that perished (there were only 8 survivors), was the ship’s Master, Capt. James Norris Jr. Was this the same Capt. James Norris that was Master of the voyage of the Rambler to PEI in June of 1806 – or was the earlier voyage captained by his father James Norris Sr. (the owner of the brig Rambler)? (Apologies if this specific info is available on the website – I wasn’t able to find it).

ALLEY FAMILY
I recently found mention of the Alley family in PEI. I am a descendant of an Alley "tree" that I have traced back to 1698 in Wiltshire, England. While most of these people remained in Wiltshire, some went farther afield and I was wondering if any of them had gone to PEI? Does anyone know of a connection to the Alleys of Wiltshire, or other parts of England, and PEI?

I would be very interested in replies as I have a number of Alleys who "vanished" from my tree and it is possible they went to Canada.

ANGUS and FANNY MACDONALD
The other day I was in the St Jerome's Catholic cementry in
Caledonia West Queens county, NS and
among the headstones to the Irish in the area, there was
2 small head stones in the 1905 - 1910 era to two children
of Angus and Fanny MacDonald. Any idea who they were?
It always amazes me how the Irish made a living in this area.
Remains of houses still can be found but it takes some looking.
Very few descendents remain in the area but I believe they do have
descendents in other parts of NA.

LADY CONSTABLE
Searching for descendants of the Lady Constable immigrants:

In 1847, 444 destitute Irish emigrants fled famine on the sailing vessel the Lady Constable and landed in Charlottetown Harbor. Twenty five passengers died of typhus during the crossing, many were hospitalized on arrival and thirty died in quarantine. A large memorial stone with bronze plaque is in the process of being erected in the old Catholic cemetery on Longworth Avenue and will be dedicated on May 21, 2009 to commemorate the anniversary of their arrival.

Many of the families appear to have settled in the vicinity of the Monaghan Road. Some names listed in the quarantine hospital according to the Fall/Winter 1994 issue of The Island Magazine were: Berrigan, Boylan, Bradly, Burns, Carpenter, Casscelly, Carver, Coles, Clarken, Finnegan, Flanning, Garven, Griffin, Hammell, Hannah, Hughes, Kearns, Keon, Maloney, McEwie, McGrath, McKenna, McKinnon, McQuaid, Malloy, McMahon, Morell, Noone, Regan, Sherry, Trainer, Walker, Walsh, Watson, and Wright.

MAC DONALD/BRIGGS

She was born 9 Feb 1871 and was baptized at St. James Church in Georgetown 17 Feb 1871. Her father's obituary of 1912 refers to her as Mrs. George Briggs of St. Louis, MO. I have found a lady by the name of Matilda Briggs on the 1910, 1920, 1930 U.S. census with a husband George Briggs. A George E. briggs died in 1945 in St. Louis, MO. His wife is listed as Matilda A. Briggs. Could this be the correct couple? A Matilda A. Briggs died in 1959 and is buried at Calvary Cemetery in St. Louis. Her age is given as 88. That makes her a good candicate to have been born in 1871.
Sibblings of Matilda were:
Laura Clementine married to Joseph McRae

Florence who went to MA and was supposed to have been a nurse

Pioneer Cemetery Restoration Committee Update
Attention all descendents of early Scottish settlers in eastern PEI. We need your help!

This Pioneer Cemetery was established in the late seventeen hundreds when the Scottish pioneers settled the area. The Cemetery served the area from St Peters to East Point and is situated next to the site of one of the earliest Catholic Churches in PEI (1803). There are approximately 120 headstones remaining but early records indicate that there were many more buried there.

The Restoration Committee has begun the process clearing the shrubbery and trees from the site. We have discovered the stone wall that surrounds the cemetery. The Pioneer Cemetery still stands in an acute state of disrepair. Our goal is to preserve and protect the rich heritage of this site and honor our ancestors.

We appeal to those who know of people buried in the St Margaret of Scotland Pioneer Cemetery in St. Margarets, PEI to contact the committee. Any information is welcome i.e. stories, pictures, maps, etc so that we can compile a history and develop a website.

Due to the rapid deterioration of the site, the restoration of the stones needs to start immediately. We appreciate any support you can offer to the Pioneer Cemetery Fund. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Mail donations to:
Pioneer Cemetery Fund c/o St Margarets Parish, RR #2 Fairfield, PEI C0A 2B0 A Tax receipt will be issued at years end!

For more information, contact Anne Kells at 569-2399 or Helen MacDonald at 687-2505. Or you can email at our new address: pioneer [at] ekpei [dot] ca

Notes for Dougald McInnis
DOUGALD McINNIS was probably born in the Highlands of Scotland and probably died in PEI, Canada. It is not known how Dougald and his family arrived at PEI. They probably arrived with other Scottish Catholic emigrants.

Note for Catherine Cory
CATHERINE CORY was probably born in Scotland and probably died in PEI, Canada. Information on Dougald and Catherine were obtained from marriage data on microfilmed records of Rev Beaubien, St. John's Miscouche. “1818, Sept 27 - 'Halene' MacInnis, son of Dougald MacInnis and Catherine Cory of 7 Mile Bay, m Mary MacDonald, da of John (Major) MacDonald and Margaret MacLean of Lot 14. Wed Wit: Joseph Arseneau, Archibald MacDonald and Juste DesRoches.”

Children of Dougald McInnis and Catherine Cory
1. Donald McInnis m. Sarah ‘Sally’ MacDonald (sister of Mary Macdonald)
2. ALLAN ‘HALENE’ McINNIS m. Mary MacDonald

A document written by Michael Ambrose McInnis (grandson of Allan) mentions four nephews of Allan. The names are Dougald, Archie, and Major McInnis of Grand River West, PEI and Augustine J.

The earliest I have is Stephen and John. Stephen leased 98 acres in the Cherry Valley area of P.E.I. and subleased 33 acres of this to John. Were these two , brothers, where did they come from, who were their parents. There is a book stating that the Carriers came to P.E.I. from Nova Scotia with the Musick family. Stephen did marry an Adelaid Musick and John did marry an Elizabeth Musick. Any info on prior to their arrival would be appreciated. I have all the info after arriving here.
Thank you

MURRAY/BENNETT
I am trying to locate information about my Maternal Grandmother's Family in PEI. Ella B. Murray was born of Francis (Owen) Murray and Mary E. Bennett in 1868 on PEI. Marriage, Death, and Census records from the U.S. record that Ella's Father was born in Scotland, Immigrated to PEI sometime between 1830 and 1850. Mary E. Bennett (Ella's Mother)was a PEI Native born sometime between 1820 and 1830. Some records suggest that Francis was also known as Owen Murray. Family lore remembers a Brother of Ella known as Owen Murray.
There is an Owen Murray buried in St Patrick's RC Cemetary at Fort Augustus during the year 1885. This may either be Ella's Father or Brother. Ella Immigrated to U.S. in 1885. Mary E. Bennett (supposedly) died when Ella was 9 year old, which would be about 1877. It seems with all this information I should be able to locate Ella's place of birth; or her Parents' resting place.
Unfortunately, so far, that has not been the case.

If anyone on this website has information about this Family, I would welcome any leads that you may have-

St Margaret of Scotland Pioneer Cemetery
Attention all descendents of early Scottish settlers in eastern PEI. We need your help!
A committee of volunteers is exploring the feasibility of restoring the St Margaret of Scotland Pioneer Cemetery which stands in an acute state of disrepair. Our goal is to preserve and protect the rich heritage of this site and honor our ancestors.
We appeal to those who know of people burried in the St Margaret of Scotland Pioneer Cemetery in St. Margarets, PEI to contact the committee. Any information is welcome i.e. stories, pictures, maps, etc so that we can compile a history and develop a website. Due to the rapid deterioration of the site, the restoration needs to start immediately. We also would appreciate donations to the this restoration project. A Tax receipt will be issued!
This Pioneer Cemetery was established in the late seventeen hundreds when the Scottish pioneeers settled the area. The Cemetery served the area from St Peters to East Point and is situted next to the site of one of the earliest Catholic Churches in PEI (1803). There are approximately 120 headstones remaining but early records indicate that there were many more buried there.

Donations are made out to: Pioneer Cemetery Fund

Hi

I am looking for some-onewhao can tell me anything about my grandfather's sister May Eleanor Wilton. She was born in England in about 1882, and that she was still in England in 1901. Her married name was Ramsay. I can't find a marriage for her in England. After she was married she lived in PEI, and, I think, died there. I know that she had a son (called Wilton).

Apart from that I know very little. Can anyone tell me when she came to PEI, why she left England, and where else did she go? Where and when did she marry? Did she have any other descendents?

Looking for any information about Isabel McLeod born PEI Feb 6, 1874. Parents were Donald Angus or Angus Donald McLeod and Catherine Buchanan. No other information on the parents at this point and I can locate nothing on the Canadian census so far. Isabel emmigrated to the US abt 1886 per 1900 US census, though one census gives an earlier date. I know she was in Ct. in 1890's where her first children were born though I am not sure whether she married in Ct. or Ma. She later lived in Ma. until her death in 1941. One of her children was named Archibald, maybe a family name? Her husband had been Walter Young. According to Isabel's death certificate, completed by her son, her parents also were born in PEI. Some US census also have PEI listed for parents place of birth. There are no other living decendents so I have been stuck for a long time. My grandmother made a passing remark once about family in Nova Scotia but I was too young to remember clearly. Also they faithfully attended the Congressional Church in the US if that is any help.

CHAPPELL
Bangor, ME Saturday, November 6, 1875, Issue 264, Col. B

The good people of Prince Edward Island take considerable pride in their young men, whom they consider average pretty well, but when they get hold of such a fellow as is thus told by the Summerside Progress, they get right
up and brag: "The young man Chappell, O'Leary road, who fell from a haystack, and being run through the body by a pitchfork, was given up by the surgeons, is recovered and is walking about. A year or two ago, while chopping
in the woods, a tree fell on him and pinned him to the ground for several hours, on which occasion he was fatally injured. Some time before he fell down the hatchway of a mill and was taken up for dead. Earlier he was thrown
from a swing, and was supposed to be killed; and, it is said, he was once drowned. Chappell is a slight young man of nineteen or twenty years of age."

Hello, I am looking for information on my mother’s side of my family tree. My grandfather was Francis Kelly b June 10, 1896 d 1972 his wife Christina McCormack b June 3, 1898 d 1984. Christina’s parents were John McCormack b July 14 1870 and Felicity b July 6 1873. I don’t have a maiden name for Felicity. Frank’s father was John Kelly and his wife was Mary Stewart b Dec 1855. I have been told that Mary Stewart was John Kelly’s second wife and not my grandfather’s biological mother. I would love any information, dates or stories that anyone might have. I am particularly interested in knowing Felicity’s maiden name and the name of Francis Kelly’s biological mother. I believe that the McCormack family lived in Iona. If anyone is able to help me trace my roots I would be so grateful. Thank you for your help!

McLEAN / MacLEAN, STEWART / STUART, McKENZIE, McKINNON
Regarding my old queries on the family of a John L. McLEAN born 1841-42 PEI who married an Agnes MORROW b about 1841 PEI (both with parents born Scotland per 1880 census in Massachusetts) and they had a son William Wallace McLEAN b 1869 in Boston MA, and then settled in MA...also had other children. In the search for John's parents, I had some nice help from Tiny Underhay in PEI and from Pat Townshend Alnes in Norway, as well as a researcher here in TN. Now I am asking for some more help ...and consideration of further information.

After considering the following info, I welcome all opinions and/or family information if known.

Allen or Allan McLEAN and wife Christy STEWART of Lot 48, possible parents I considered for a John L.McLEAN b 1842 PEI, as follows:
=========
Child's Full Name John McLEAN
Birth Date 27 May 1842
Place of Birth Lot 48
Baptismal Date 5 July 1842
Place of Baptism
Officiating Clergy John McLennan
Father's Name Alan McLean
Mother's Name Christy Stewart
Church Name St. John's Presbyterian
Church Location Belfast
Record Book Number 2
Record Book Page 139
======
Trying to help me, Brian Cox here, who is studying families in Lot 67 emailed me and said:

John's three siblings Annie, Charles, and Elizabeth were also born in Lot 48, baptised at St John's. So parents Allan McLean and Christy Stewart of Lot 48 were quite different people than Allan McLean and Christina McKenzie of Lot 67. This is not to say they were not related.

Brian Cox goes on to say: It is interesting that we find Charles, son of Christy Stewart, has most likley moved to Lot 67, married Flora ??? and had two children by the 1881 census. This is a reasonable speculation based on age of Charles. (he is also in 1901 census in Lot 67). Was he influenced to move by his Lot 67 relatives?

And further to this McLEAN family of Lot 67, Brian also sent the following:

===============
I am examining these PEI McLEAN families due to a 66 of 67 marker DNA match (FamilyTreeDNA Clan MacLEAN project) with my direct line stemming from my most distant known ancestor Charles McLEAN / McCLAIN b about 1784 North Carolina who has UNKNOWN parents b circa 1750-60 I am trying to identify, as well as to place this Charles in some context with the PEI line that matches on DNA. Perhaps the link is in PEI or back in Scotland, perhaps a Loyalist during the American REvolution? All possibilities considered.

This search for Charles' parents has been ongoing for some years with no results, but dozens of possibilities and other very close DNA matches. Still we have holes in the lineages and no proven link.

I also have several 64 of 67 marker DNA matches, and one match is with 'cousins' Dudley and Mary, on a line descending from Charles McLAIN b abt 1713 (from Isle of Mull / Ulster) who immigrated and settled in Monmouth NJ, married there 1731 to Lydia CHEESEMAN,had more children and 2nd marriage and then settled in Pennsylvania. So far we find no link ..but many holes and possibilities ..with my line from Charles McCLAIN b abt 1784 NC who went to KY, then was found in Warren Co TN, then up to Gallatin Illinois, and back down to TN, living in West TN and settling in Weakley County TN where he died. FAmily lore from my line and the lines of 'found' cousins all say they were Scot-Irish from Isle of Mull.

Mary found the following and my question to anyone here is,"Can anyone tell me if the above Allen McLEAN family of (Lot 48) and/or Lot 67, relates in any way to the earlier-born Allen McLEAN below?"
===================
Mary writes:
I just reread the bio of Allan MacLEAN I had obtained from the "Dictionary of Canadian Biography" and it includes the information that after the battles at Quebec, etc. in 1756-1761(what we call the "French and Indian War") he returned to Britain in 1861 when he was made major commandant of the 114th Foot(Maclean's Highlanders), proceeded to North America with his men "but in 1763 the regiment was disbanded and MacLEAN went on half pay. A number of his men settled on St. John's(Prince Edward) Island." Later, he was empowered June 12, 1775 to raise a "corps of two Battalions...to be called the Royal Highland Emigrants...the first battalion was recruited in Canada and New York and the second in Nova Scotia and St.John's(P.E.I.) Island...during the revolutionary war the second battalion never served as a unit, although some detachments were sent to the Carolinas..." Maybe that's how your ancestors got from Prince Edw. Is. to NC/SC.......????? Maybe lists of these soldiers are obtainable from Canada...???? Where did they disband...???? did some return to the Carolinas after the war....????
==============
Many thanks to anyone who can offer some information.

BENJAMIN BARSTOW
A Benjamin Barstow lived on City Island in the Bronx (New York) and was married to a "Sarah E." According to the New York Times Obit she was a widow and died Aug 21, 1921. They lived at 230 City Island Avenue. The house was abandoned for many years and as a very young boy I entered it after some others had broken into it. I recall seeing very expensive looking lamps, furnishings and articles from all over the world. The man may have been a ship captain or other profession which allowed him to collect these things. I have looked at your geneology of EI Barstows, but cannot see any connection. Sarah was 75 when she died, making her birth about 1846 and give or take 15 years I see no Benjamin. Different family ??? I could not find an Obit on Benjamin . . .

FITZPATRICK
I am looking for a Morgan and Margaret (nee Arnold), Fitzpatrick. They lived in Lot 35, not sure how long but they appear in the 1841 census. Morgan was a tailor. They were from Co. Wexford in Ireland. A daughter, Elizabeth, was baptized at St. Joachim's Church in Vernon River in 1843

They are my mother's gg grandparents, her great-grandfather was Patrick Fitzpatrick (born ca. 1821-1825) who lived in the Dorchester/Memramcook area of NB. We are not certain as to where he was born. Most of his children's death certificates say he was born in Ireland, but a few say "at sea" and one says PEI.

HOLLAND -- WW2 / SAN DEMETRIO STORY
I am researching an incident that occured in WW2 (Nov 1940): The Jervis Bay incident which involved the MV San Demetrio a British tanker torpedoed by the German sub Admiral Sheer. My Grandfather (Francis B. Holland) was on the San Demetrio and I have some info on this story but would like to know more. I know he was rescued and was not on the ship when it made it's way to England. I believe he was brought
to St.John's NFLD aboard the Glouster City and returned later to Charlottetown--and returned to the R.C.N.R. to serve throughout Canada. He was honorably discharged in April 1945.
Any and all information or leads will be greatly appreciated. GH

Posting personal genealogy info
We like to share information on family genealogy but in this day of such prevalent ID fraud, what recourse do we have when people post your personal info on their sites, without your permission, and especially when you repeatedly have asked them to delete it. This site restricts info to deceased individuals as it should be, but in my opinion, posting private personal information on living members is a direct invasion of that person's privacy. If anybody has any suggestions to resolve this, I think it would benefit all genealogy researchers.

MCNEIL
Although I am not actively researching the McNeil family, there is a Margaret McNeil of Vernon River in my family tree. She married my GG grandfather Joseph Edward Heckbert. Here is all the information that I have:
He was listed as Edward Heckbert, bachelor, and she was listed as Margaret McNeil, spinster, Vernon River. They were married in Zion Presbyterian Church in Charlottetown by James Fletcher (Justice of the Peace) on 22 August 1874.

Sadly, Joseph was not really a bachelor but was a married man. Margaret obviously found out and eventually testified against him in January 1876 when he was being tried for bigamy. He was sentenced to one year in jail in Charlottetown but died in June of that year in jail. I have always wanted to find out a bit more information about Margaret - who her parents were, when and where she was born, and if she had any children with Joseph.

I found another marriage record for a Margaret McNeil who married in 1877:
Margaret A McNeill, spinster of Vernon River married Edwin Garrett, bachelor, of St. John's NB on 26 December 1877. Witnesses were Mary and D J McDonald. Book 1, Page 11, #197. Zion Presbyterian Records.
I wonder if this is the same Margaret McNeil that married Jospeh Edward Heckbert?

I’d love to hear from anyone who might have information about the Margaret McNeil that married Joseph Edward Heckbert.

LETT, LETTE, STEWART, YOUNG, ROSS
I am rather new at PEI genealogy. I have not had any luck with contacting any of the Lett(e) families of PEI, but I was able to trace the PEI Leet(e)'s all the way back to the Governor of the Connecticut Colony through his death in 1683 (b. 1613 England). This was easy once I got my connection - the Governor's lineage is in a book written in the 1800s! I am related to Emily Leet (b. circa 1835) who married William Stewart (b circa. 1835) and lived in West River, PEI according to the book. William and Emily Stewart's daughter Margaret married Charles Young, Lot 45/46 boundary as I can see. The late Johnny Ross Young is part of Charles and Margaret Young's lineage.

As to the Governor's line: it includes folks from PEI; Claremont, NH; Quebec; Nova Scotia, Massachusetts, CT and more. The Leets and Stewarts seem to be from Lots 46 and 47.

Anyone related? Kathy

ROBERTSON, James C.
From Washington State USGenweb. If you go to the webpage, there's a photo of James and his wife.

http://wagenweb.org/garfield/robertson.htm

JAMES C. ROBERTSON

For more than a third of a century James C. ROBERTSON has been identified with the farming interest of Garfield county and now carries on general agricultural pursuits on section 25, township 11 north, range 41 east, where he owns three hundred and seventeen acres and cultivates part of this tract or about one hundred and fifty acres. He started out in life empty-handed, so that whatever success he has achieved is attributable entirely to his persistent efforts and intelligently directed industry. He was born on Prince Edward Island, Canada, September 30, 1862, a son of John and Mary (STEEL) ROBERTSON, who are mentioned in connection with the sketch of their son, John ROBERTSON, on another page of this work.

James C. ROBERTSON spent the first ten years of his life in Canada and in 1873 accompanied his parents to California, where the family home was maintained until 1882. In the meantime the father died and the mother accompanied by her family of four sons and a daughter, then came to Washington. James C. ROBERTSON had been a pupil schools of Canada and of California and was a youth of fifteen years at the time of his father's death. Being the oldest of the children, much of the responsibility of the farm work devolved upon him and he bravely met the task that was a heavy burden for young shoulders. In the spring of 1882 he came to Washington, making the trip in advance of the family. He journeyed northward with an uncle and on the 10th of May they arrived at Pomeroy. That fall the mother and his brothers and sister came and in connection with his brothers, Samuel N. and John, James C. ROBERTSON began farming in a partnership relation that existed for twenty years. Unusual harmony existed between the family, the tie that binds them being very close. The brothers persistently and energetically continued the work of improving their fields and, as the years passed on, success in substantial measure rewarded their efforts. At length they divided their interests and James C. ROBERTSON is today the owner of three hundred and seventeen acres of land, part of which he has brought under a high state of cultivation, his fields returning to him a gratifying annual income.

In 1888 was celebrated the marriage of James C. ROBERTSON and Miss Ollie M. SWANK, of Garfield county. a daughter of John SWANK, who is now in Orofino, Idaho, but was one of the earliest of the pioneer settlers of Garfield county. Mr. and Mrs. ROBERTSON have become the parents of seven children, as follows: Rosella, who is the wife of C.E. LEWIS, a farmer of Garfield county, Washington; Elvira, who gave her hand in marriage to Henry RUCKET, an agriculturist of Garfield county; and Floyd, Belinda, Sybil and Bryon, all at home. The wife and mother passed away February 13, 1905, and is laid to rest in the Petowa Flats cemetery, her demise causing deep sorrow to family and friends.

Mr. ROBERTSON usually exercises his right of franchise is support of the men and measures of the republican party yet is liberal in his views and does not hesitate to vote for a candidate of the opposing party if his judgement dictates this to be the best course. He belongs to Harmony lodge, No. 16, I.O.O.F., of Pomeroy; and to Pomeroy Lodge, K.P. He ranks with the leading farmers of Tatman Gulch and he well merits the high regard in which he is uniformly held, for his has been an active, useful and honorable life. He has concentrated his efforts and attention upon his business interests, has never been known to take advantage of the necessities of another in a business transaction, but along legitimate lines has won the success that places him among the substantial residents of his section of the state.

COLE, Marion Alma
Washington State USGenweb page
Jerome Romaine married Marion Alma Cole daughter of Converse Cole whose wife was born Summerside, PEI (near bottom of article).

http://theusgenweb.org/wa/whatcom/bios/bios1.htm
JEROME W. ROMAINE

Jerome W. Romaine, a leading attorney of Whatcom, Washington, and a prominent politician of Whatcom County, was born May 15, 1859, in Fond du Lac county, Wisconsin. He is a son of Garrett and Martha L. (Harbaugh) Romaine, the former of whom was of Dutch extraction, his ancestors emigrating from Holland, and the latter of German-English-French ancestry. The Romaine family was established in the state of New York in 1679. The father of Jerome W. Romaine was a farmer and stockman in that state until his death, on October 22, 1899. All of his kindred lived in New York or New Jersey. The mother of our subject was a native of Ohio and now resides at Dayton, Washing-ton. Our subject's brothers and sisters are: William B., who has been a farmer at Dayton, is now a resident of .Portland, Oregon; John Henry is a farmer and stock-raiser at Dayton; Frantz S. is a rancher and stockman at Dayton; Freeman C. is engaged in the same business; Charity A. is the wife of Newton James, a farmer of Dayton; and Rachel J. is the wife of Henry James, who is also engaged in farming at Dayton.

Jerome W. Romaine was educated in the public schools of Dayton and graduated at the high school in 1881. His law reading was done with Judge R. F. Sturdevant at Dayton, and he was admitted to the bar in 1887, before Judge Langford, judge of the United States district court. Prior to this, however, in 1882, he went to Big Timber, Montana, near the Yellowstone, and spent seven months on the range as a cowboy. Returning to Dayton, in the spring of 1883 he was appointed deputy assessor three years, and deputy sheriff for seven months, at the same time filling the position of clerk of the city schools. With this practical experience of men and affairs, Mr. Romaine commenced his law practice, and for six months in 1888 officiated as the editor and publisher of the Okanogan Outlook. He encountered many difficulties in this enterprise, but with wonderful ingenuity managed to issue his paper regularly, although at one time it had to be printed on wall paper, exhausting the town's supply of this article. His services on this paper were terminated by his election as county superintendent' of schools, in which position he efficiently served for two years, until 1890.

Mr. Romaine then went to Olympia, where he was made assistant secretary in the state senate during- the first state legislature, in 1889-90, when he returned to Okanogan, closed up his business affairs and removed to Whatcom, where, on July I, 1890, he opened his law office, in 1891 forming a partnership with Major A. S. Cole. When he was appointed secretary of the Whatcom tide land appraisers, he gave his attention to the duties of that office during the existence of the board, which appraised all the tide lands in the county. After dissolving partnership with Major Cole, he became associated with Frank H. Richards, and later with Judge I. N. Maxwell. In the fall of 1896 he was elected prosecuting attorney of Whatcom county. In October, 1898, his health became impaired, and he made a trip to Honolulu, where he remained recuperating for seven months, during which time he was admitted to practice in the supreme court of Hawaii. Returning to the United States, he practiced law for nine months at Oakland, California. In the spring of 1900 he returned to Whatcom, and in August, 1901, he formed a partnership with Judge John R. Crites.

During the past ten years Mr. Romaine has been considerably interested in mining properties, and owns a one-third interest in the Whistler Group mines on Slate creek in Washington, and has other interests here and in the Mt. Baker district. He is one of the stockholders and a promoter of the Bellingham Oyster Company, and is serving as its secretary-an organization which has acquired seven hundred acres on Samish flats, in which have been found a choice variety of oyster. He is also one of the members and an organizer of the Bellingham Lumber & Shingle Company of Fairhaven, which has a paid-in capital of fifty thousand dollars. The capacity of its plant is thirty-five thousand feet of lumber per day, and the company is engaged in building a box factory in connection with it.

Mr. Romaine has been an active and is a very influential member of the Republican Party, and for two years was the secretary of the Republican county convention in Okanogan and its secretary in Whatcom County for four years. In 1902 he was nominated for the state senate in the forty-second district, but was defeated. He has been regular in his attendance at the different state and county conventions, and is regarded by his party as one of its leaders.

On July 21, 1897, Mr. Romaine was married at Whatcom to Marion Alma Cole, daughter of Converse G. Cole, formerly postmaster at Whatcom. Mr. Cole was of English descent, but was born in New Hampshire, his wife being a native of Summerside, Prince Edward Island. Mrs. Romaine died June 3, 1898, leaving an infant daughter, Lecil Alma, born June 1, 1898. Mr. Romaine belongs to the various branches of the Masonic fraternity, and is also a Modern Woodman. His religious connection is with the Episcopal Church.

LEARD, Harold C.
Found this on USGebweb page for Washington State.

HAROLD C. LEARD FAMILY

Harold Leard was born on Prince Edward Island, Canada, June 13, 1896 to William and Annie Leard; sister Ethel was born in 1905. The family moved west to
Saskatchewan in 1907 where he finished high school and became a mechanic. He harvested crops for farmers with his machinery in the Beatty area
where he was active in church and community. He came to the states in 1923, met
and married Velma Hostetter in 1925.
Velma, daughter of Austin and Neomi Hostetter was born Jan. 11, 1894 in
Welda, Kansas. Her parents had homesteaded land at Knowles, Oklahoma. After her
father was killed her mother moved her and three sisters to Goodwill
to complete their education. Harold and Velma made their first home in Detroit, Michigan, where Harold worked for the Ford company, Daughter Lillian was born in 1927. In 1928 they moved to Oklahoma to farm the Hostetter land, where son Marion was born in 1929.
The dust bowl forced their move west in 1936, They settled on a farm on
Newaukum Hill just out of Chehalis. There with hard work and determination they
built up a productive chicken business. Their children have always
been grateful that they were taught the value of hard work.
Their Christmas trees in Oklahoma were usually a dead fruit tree so
naturally the family was delighted with the beautiful fir trees here. The first
Christmas spent in Washington the family cut down seven six-foot trees and tied
them to the veranda posts around the house to commemorate the seven years
without green Christmas trees in Oklahoma. The eighth tree was put up
inside the house on the hand-cranked washing machine, They could only afford two ornaments and a few icicles. One of the ornaments is still being used by Lillian. The family attended Sunday School at Newaukum and Evaline, and were involved in community activities. They often played musical instruments together, Velma the piano, Harold and Lillian violins, and Marion the coronet. Harold whistled everywhere he went on the farm, feeding chickens or walking down the street. When residents on the hill cleared land and had a large brush pile to burn all the neighbor families would gather in the evening to control the burn and enjoy a potluck.
Marion and Lillian graduated from the Adna schools. Lillian
married Dennis Francy in 1947, and they reside in the Chehalis area.
Harold passed away in 1952 of leukemia, and after the farm
was sold Velma and Marion moved to Paradise, California, where Marion built homes for some time. He then served as director of Heifer Project in Germany for two years for the Church of the Brethren. He is now a building contractor in Glendale. He married Lucille Crawford and they have four children.
Velma married Fletcher Hanshaw in 1959, and he passed on in 1967. She
continues to enjoy good health and lives alone in her home in Modesto,
California.

In 1906 he was married to Miss Sarah Olson, of this city. Four children were born to the union: Wallace, who passed away at the age of 9 months, and for whom the father mourned, has now been joined by him beyond where there is no grief.

ESSARY, Joseph
I found this in USGenweb pages for North Dakota.

http://lib.ndsu.nodak.edu/ndirs/exhibitions/photographers/biography/essery.html


Business years 1882 - 1884
Business address 618 1st Avenue No.: (after 1884 numbered 619 1st Avenue No.)

Joseph Essery was born about 1860 in Prince Edward Island, Canada. In the 1880 United States Census he was living with his brother's family in St. Paul, Minn. working as a photographer.

He first operated a studio in Fargo on First Avenue North between Broadway and Roberts Street according to the 1882 and 1883 city directories. In the 1884 directory the address is listed as 618 First Avenue North where he also resided.

Mr. Essery was probably in partnership with S. Norrish in 1883 and Frank Agnew in 1884, since they are listed at the same address in the city directories.

No additional information has been found regarding Mr. Essery, and he was not listed in the 1885 Dakota Territory census.

COX, John Henry
Amador ledger (Jackson, Amador County, Calif): May 26, 1905

"Death of John H. Cox

John H. Cox, a former resident of Amador county, died last week in San Francisco. He attended ditch for many years for the Amador Canal, on the Clinton beat. For some time he has bene employed in the city, his family having moved there several years ago. He will be remembered as a man of many sterling qualities, and his many friends throughout the county will regret to hear of his death. The Examiner of the 19th, has the following account of his demise:

On October 11, 1904, Cox, who was 74 years of age and a native of Prince Edward's Island, injured his hand with a rusty nail while removing building debris at Fillmore street and Duboce avenue. His wife, his two sons and his daughter-in-law say that on October 17th he went under the treatment of Dr. Carl Von Tiedemann, and that he remained under Von Tiedmann's treatment until April 5th. They sat that Von Tiedemann contracted to cure Cox for $100,and that they paid him $75 of that amount. Von Tiedemann says he was discharged three months ago, when a christian scientist was called into the case. It was for that reason, says Von Tiedemann, that he refused to sign the death certificate.

Detective Cody says that after Von Tiedemann gave up the case Silas M. Cox, a son of John H. Cox, called in Charles M. Howe, a christian scientist, with office in the Phelan building. This, says Cody, was done against the wishes of the sick man's wife, his other son and his daughter-in-law. The final result was that Cox died of gangrene of the left foot.

Now, Dr. Dudley Taft of the State Board of Medical Examiners has been called in for the purpose of handling Von Tiedemann. Tait has been prosecuting Von Tiedemann on the charge of practicing medicine without a license,and the coroner thinks that Tait should know all about Von Tiedemann's connection with the Cox case."

(Note: I rechecked article - rusty nail in hand but died of gangrene of left foot.)

Amador ledger (Jackson, Amador County, Calif): May 26, 1905

Rev. Hugh T. Morrison, my g-grandfather, was born on PEI in Dec 1843. He married Agnes Chandler about 1865-1870. Their first son, Russell Morrison, was born on PEI in 1871 or 1872. Between then and the birth of their next son, Charles Clayton Morrison in December 1874, he emmigrated to the US, traveling around as a Campbellite(?) minister.

Hugh and Agnes' children:
---Russell Morrison (b 1871-2, PEI) was a music teacher in Tacoma, Washington, USA
---Rev. Charles Calyton Morrison (b Dec 1874, Ohio; d 1966), married Laurel S. (nee?). Was Editor of the Christian Science Monitor for most of the first half of the 20th century
---High Tucker Morrison, MD, ThD (b 4 Jan 1887, Michigan, USA; d Feb 1973), married Mary H. Logan
---Louise Chandler Morrison (b 10 Sep 1880, Michigan, USA; d Jun 1974, Ilinois, USA), married Dr. Wilber Post

I know nothing about Hugh's ancestry and would be grateful for any assistance
