GILLIS-MACISAAC
Wondering if anyone might make a connection to individual below. I posted about her before but got no response. I found this info that might make sense if someone can confirm any of what I have found:
Sarah Gillis born circa 1850 Egypt, Upper Margaree, Inverness County, NS; daughter of Alexander and Ann (MacLellan) Gillis. The only other information I have is that she was married in PEI. She might be the Sarah Gillis married to Ronald MacIsaac on the 1891 Census for Rollo Bay area. On that census she has three children John Duncan born 1883, Joseph Alexander born 1884 and Mary Catherine born 1889. She was Roman Catholic growing up. Her children were baptized at Rollo Bay Catholic Church. Also in the household is a son Vernon from a previous marriage. He would be 19 in 1891.
Any help would be most grateful.

YEOMAN
I am interested to learn of any Yeoman family. My Great-Grandmother Sarah Yeoman and her brother William Yeoman emigrated from PEI to Boston in the 1890's. They were born in PEI in the mid-1870's. To my knowledge, their father William, born about mid-1840's and his wife Bridget stayed behind in PEI. Not certain if the father and mother were born in PEI or in Scotland. There was supposedly a family farm known as the Yeoman Farm, but current family members have been unable to locate it. Would anyone know of the Yeoman family? Thanks, Kevin

MACDONALD (Tracadie, lot 36)
Hi. In responce to queries, I've just written a long e-mail about my grandfather's ancestors. Thought I'd copy it here and hope to hear additions, corrections, and/or greetings from others related to or interested in this family! Thanks.

My grandfather A. Bernard Macdonald of Tracadie (Blooming Point, I believe) claimed to be of the Glenaladale settlers, arriving 1772 on the Alexander. Grandpa was b. 23 or 24 November 1879 and died 16 March 1964 in Vancouver, B.C. He left PEI when he was in his twenties. My info on his family I have mostly from his cousin Sister Anna.

(His first name, as far as he knew, was Allan/Allen. However another researcher has found his baptism, St. Bonaventure, where his name is Albert Bernard. The date is one day off, too, but the parents match.)

The family is known by some as the Orwell Macdonalds.

According to the info I have:

Grandpa’s parents were John C. b. about 1827 and Elizabeth Mary, maiden name McDonald, b. abt. 1842.

John C.’s parents were Charles Macdonald and Margaret McDonald.

Elizabeth Mary’s parents were Hugh MacDonald of Tracadie Cross and Jane McKenzie (possibly widow Jane?) of Scotchfort. They married 24 July 1839 (according to a website).

Charles Macdonald was (presumably) son of the immigrant. My grandfather insisted that our immigrant’s first name was Angus. A researcher doubts the name Angus, as no descendant has that name; she believes his name must have been Charles. Immigrant came from Boisdale, S.Uist. Immigrant’s wife may have been the 88 year old woman in (grandson) John C.’s household in 1841, thus b. abt. 1753.

My grandfather’s siblings were:
Charles J., abt. 1867
Hugh James, abt. 1871
Augustine, abt. 1873
John Alexander, b. 1874 Tracadie, “Cardigan Jack”, mercantile, shipping/shipbuilding, marr. Boston, Mass. to Marie Josephine, dau of Capt. Joseph McDonald
Johanna Catherine, abt. 1878
(and maybe Margaret Jane, abt. 1886)

John C.’s siblings were:
Margaret, marr. John McCormick of Pointe DeRoche
Catherine, d. young
Ann, d. young
Ellen, marr. Samuel White of Portland, Oregon
Mary, marr. Stephen McDonald of Grand Tracadie
Augustine, sea captain who retired to Vancouver, Washington; father of Peter A. and Charlie who both died in old age in Washington State
Charles

His wife Elizabeth Mary’s siblings:
Ellen marr. Thomas T. Taylor of Charlottetown
Margaret, d. bef. 1907, marr. D. A. McDonald of-or-at Mt. Stewart; moved to Boston
Annie b. 18 May 1845, marr in Boston, d. before 1907
Matilda, marr. John S. McDonald

John C.’s father Charles’ siblings:
Roderick, settled at Tracadie
Alexander #1, settled at Tracadie
Donald
Alexander #2
James
Ronald
and 5 sisters

As you may have noticed, I spell the names of my direct male ancestors Macdonald; the others MacD or McD.

Best,

CEMETERY PHOTOS/KINGSBORO//EAST POINT/SOUTH LAKE
About 3 years ago, I took photos of all ? the headstones at South Lake and East Point cemeteries. I have put them into an album on my Facebook page. I also have a few other albums of photos of I identified persons and groups that I scanned from some families on the area. Some photos have already been identified and the folks were not a part of the family that had the photo...so you never know what or who you might find. Yyou have to click on the word "albums" to see my different albums. Then when you are in the album, click on the photo to enlarge it and to see if anyone has identified it.

SMITH/WEST/DAVIS
Hello,
I hope that you can help me. In 1881, Capt. Edouard/Edward W. Smith is living in PEI with his first wife Lily Alelia West and 3 adopted children. I believe they may be actually the children of friends and relatives. Edouard and Lily were married in Montreal, Quebec. Then in 1891, Edouard Smith is living in Quebec with a second wife, Ellen Lewers Davis. So Lily died and Edouard remarried between 1881 and 1891. But I don't know if Lily died in PEI or Quebec, and I don't know when. I don't know the date or place of the second marriage, whether PEI or Quebec. Would you have record of Lily's death and/or the remarriage to Ellen? Ellen was born in Ireland but raised in Quebec.
I really need some help with this. I have been searching for many, many years. Even the death of Lilly would narrow down the marriage date for Ellen. There was a fire in a bookstore in PEI which burned down the bookstore but I don't know what year that was.
Thank you
Peggy

GODFREY FAMILY
William Godfrey (1822-1902) married Sarah Byers (1832-1887) and had 8 children in Charlottetown, PEI (Thomas, Mary Ann, George, Margaret Elizabeth, William, Sarah Ann, James Henry, and Thomas. None of them were buried in PEI. George Godfrey (1953-1901) was the famous boxer, who is in the PEI Boxing Hall of Fame.
The initial member of the Godfrey family to settle on PEI was William Godfrey, I of Mettingham, Suffolk, England, who married into another prolific 'Black' family in Charlottetown. William married Sarah Byers in November 12, 1846. William and Sarah’s three oldest children, Thomas, Mary Ann and George were all baptized on the same day, the 14th of June 1853 at St. Dunstan’s Basilica (Catholic Church). William and Sarah had another four children, all of whom were born in Charlottetown. In 1854 William was convicted of petty larceny and served two weeks in jail for stealing a cow. The only early newspaper reference for this family appears in the Examiner in September of 1855. This short article reported that Frederick Byers had been convicted for assault on Sarah Godfrey and had been “fined 2s6d and costs or 1 month imprisonment.” William appears in the 1861 census as living in Charlottetown. His occupation was listed as “Labourer.” There were eight people living in his household, seven of whom were from PEI and one individual from England. William and Sarah’s last child born on PEI was Thomas in 1870. William and Sarah moved to Boston in the early 1870s with the most of their family. This move was documented in the boxing success of their son George. When he was quite young, George came with his parents to Boston. George initially worked as a Porter in Boston. He began his boxing training at Professor Bailey’s Hub City Gym and at twenty-six, he began fighting competitively in the bare knuckles tour. Godfrey’s ring title was “Old Chocolate” and achieved the status of becoming the first colored heavy weight champion of North America, fighting in more than one-hundred bouts. His height was 5 ft 10.5 inches, and when in condition, he weighed 170 pounds. He first took boxing in 1879 when he fought Prof. Hadley (colored), a six round draw, and Harry Hills, New York, for a gold medal. He next met H. Williams in Boston. They fought with gloves for the gate receipts, and Godfrey knocked Williams out in three rounds lasting seven minutes. In 1880, he was matched to fight John L. Sullivan to a finish for a purse. They were stripped and ready for the fray in the rooms of the Prof. Bailey when the police interfered. In 1883, Godfrey and Kilrain sparred at Gray’s opera House, Boston. Prof. Hadley of New York was his next victim. They at the Crabb Club, Boston, February 22, 1883 and Godfrey whipped the New Yorker in six rounds, lasting 23 minutes. Godfrey was awarded the $100 purse. Jack Kilrain and Godfrey met in April 1888, at the Cribb Club. During the third round the mill was stopped. Neither one had any advantage. Godfrey had a boxing school in his later years which had been located at 8 Tremont Row. George B. Godfrey died on the 18th October 1901, due to Tuberculosis, at fifty-eight years of age. After his death, the gym was taken over by his brother James and his son, George H. Godfrey. Surnames appearing within the descendants of William Godfrey and Sarah Byers: Bruce, Cameron, McLean, Myers. William Godfrey I: Birth: Feb. 22, 1822 in Suffolk County, England. Occupation: laborer/farmer Religion: Christian - Anglican/Catholic Death: Sep. 13, 1902 in Boston, MA, USA. Lived at 25 Phillips Street in Boston, MA and died there. Buried at the Cedar Grove Cemetery in Dorchester, MA. Probably became a Catholic because the Catholic Church aided in freeing many slaves in PEI. May have German, Irish, Indian, and English ancestors.

MacDonald
Thanks Joanne (JMastergardener@aol.com) for keeping the 'MacDonald Cousins' connected! It has been a while, so putting out my info one more time. I have not made much progress.

GGF Dr. James Athanasius MacDonald, born in Charlottetown, PEI, on May 2, 1842. James attended St. Dunstan's and Prince of Wales College. He left PEI for Boston and graduated Harvard Medical School in 1866. He settled in Charlestown, Mass. and married Anna Sarah Sprague in 1868. Died December 10, 1910.

My grandfather is Dr. William Joseph MacDonald (2-18-1873) from Brookline, Mass and later Intervale, New Hampshire.

My most promising and frustrating info - as I can’t confirm - Response says “I have a copy of notes which I've found to be quite accurate. It lists the mother of Dr. James A. as Mary, the d/o James MacDonald. She has James A. married to Ann Sprague with children: James (Lawyer), Dr William J., Dr Louis, and Anna. (This I know is accurate-N.M.) Other children of Ronald and Mary: Donald R. m Eliza MacIntyre; Angus R. m ELiza MacDonald, John R m Mary Ellen; Flora m John MacIntyre; Katherine m Charles MacDonald from Orwell; Johanna m David MacDonald; Belle Anne m John MacDonald; Mary m Charles MacDonald of Blooming Point. Ronald was the s/o John MacDonald and Flora Gillis and John was the s/o Donald MacDonald who fought at the Battle of Culloden and had to leave Scotland following the battle.”

My ggg grandfather was one Hector Nicholson, born 1828 in Inverness, Scotland, d. 1895 in NB. Several of his children were born in Bradalbane, PEI (which I think is lot 22) in the 1850s. His obituary read:

d. Elgin, July 28 age 76 years, Hector Nicholson. Born in Inverness, Scotland, at an early age came to P.E.I. with his parents and in the later half of his life made his home in this place. He was a member of the 'Kirk' and was so used to his mother tongue that the Gaelic bible was his closest companion. He left a widow, two sons and five daughters. (Vital Statistics from New Brunswick Newspapers, vol. 101, #163 - original 21 August 1895 in Messenger and Visitor newspaper).

I wonder if he is of the Murdock Nicholson branch of Hope River - has anyone come across him in their research?

GEORGE STEPHEN BEER
Hallo. Can somebody please help me in researching George Stephen Beer who was apparently born in Charlottetown on 7 July 1874? He was the son of F.D. Beer and married Margaret Fleming on 25 August 1898. He was one of the many Canadians who went to serve in South Africa during the Anglo Boer War. He was appointed as a Captain with the 4th Contingent seving with the South African Constabulary. At the end of the War he remained in South Africa and served with distinction in the South African Police Force. In 1915 he was promoted to the senior position of Deputy Commissioner for the Province of the Orange Free State. He was awarded the OBE in 1919. I am currently gathering archival information about him here in South Africa as well as photographs (some already to hand) and further details of his carear but would be most interested in learning about his genealogy and his early life in Prince Edward Island.I would be most happy to post my full "write-up" about him when complete.

Well worth a visit. For example the two Volumes on Georgetown - have obits and marriage notices for people in that area but also folks from other areas are mentioned and many who had lived there but may have immigrated. The surnames are bolded so you can quickly scan.

You can view on line and print too. No search within books unless I have missed that.

BOURKE/YOUNG
Desperately trying to find out what happened to my great-grandmother. Her name was Laura Johnson Bourke, daughter of Peter MacGowan Bourke and Caroline Hayden. She was born in 1867. She married John Young and had Percy Lorne, Earl Courtney, Edgar Carlisle (died as an infant), and Anita Marguerite. Shortly after Edgar Carlisle died (same year as her mother died I discovered) she went to the States and never came back.

My great-grandfather remarried, moved to Ottawa and had two more children. Anyway - I know they were divorced, and she stayed in the States. The story is my great-grandfather asked her through their lawyers if she wanted to meet her now grown sons and see how well they were doing and she said no, she wasn't interested as she had a new family.

My digging and discovering she had a baby die a few months after her mother died made me think she was deeply depressed and simply couldn't handle her other young children and household. I would so love to know what happened to her - I think one of her sisters lived in New England somewhere. Does anybody out there know anything about the Bourke family from Charlottetown who went to the US and never came back?

Hello there. I was a bit taken back by your statement on the Island Register. I have been researching the family for some 30 years, among many other more reputable researchers.. There does not exist any firm evidence as to his origins. There is speculation that his mother may have been an amerindIan by the name of the Adrienne Langlois. But that is speculatory as is what is contained in his baptismal record. There is no conclusive evidence to suggest that he WAS Metis. If you have that evidence it would be great to share it with your statement. Regards, J.P. Gary Gallant

PERRY or POIRIER
Hi,
My mother Emma Pineau formerly of Bloomfield, PEI had a scrap book filled with articles about local people from PEI. One interesting one is an article I have about a Ben Perry. The article titled "Collector preserves folk songs from past" and is dated Oct 10, 1990 from a periodical called "The West Prince Graphic". Ben's parents were a Frank Perry and Celina (unknown last name). As my maternal grandmother was a Poirier (often agnlicized to Perry), I am interested in the connection. Does anyone have any idea about this branch of the Perry family? Thanks in advance for any help. If you would like to see the article, I could send it to you by e-mail. Thanks again. Gary G

SARAH GILLIS
I am again on the hunt for a lost relative. Her name was Sarah Gillis. She was one of eleven children. She was born circa 1850 In Egypt, Upper Margaree, Inverness County, NS. She was the daughter of Alexander Gillis born around 1810 in Morar, Scotland and Ann MacLellan of Kenloch, Morar, Scotland.
Alexander was the son of Archy Ban Gillis and Mary Gillis who came out
to the Margarees around 1825. Ann was the daughter of Donald MacLellan,
Morar, Scotland. Sarah was baptized a Roman Catholic. She married and was living in Prince Edward Island. I do not know if she remained on the Island or moved elsewhere. I don't believe that she moved back to Cape Breton.
I am wondering if anyone has come across her in their searches. Unfortunately, I do not have her married name. I would appreciate any leads or advice that is out there. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I am at a stand still. I am trying to find information on my great great grandparents and my great grand parents. My GG grandparents are William McIntyre (apparently born in PEI) and Johanna Galbraith (Ireland?). I'd be really interested in knowing where Johanna Galbraith was born, and where they both resided on PEI. I've searched many sites online but cannot find any information on Johanna. Family records indicate that they lived somewhere around York or Stanhope, but we have no physical proof. I'd also be interested in knowing how many children they had. I know of at least one; my G grandmother named Jane or Elizabeth Jane McIntyre, born on August 18, 1849. I'd love to know where she was born/lived on the island and who she married. I have a copy of her death certificate which indicates that she lived in NS (Trenton) for 25 -30 years, and past away there on June 13, 1939. Interesting note: she is listed as widowed, but her maiden name and married name are the same - McIntyre. Our records show that there were 2 boys - William Henry (Cody) McIntyre (my grandfather) and John Francis. I'm not sure if John is her son, or nephew...
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

ELLIS
Looking for information on Andrew Ellis and his wife Mary Ann Smith. They went to a PEI wedding about Feb. 10, 1872. According to family lore, the bride had jilted a previous boyfriend. The ex-boyfriend came to the wedding with a poisoned bottle of wine intended for the bride. Instead, my great-great grandmother Mary Ann Ellis and her son John Andrew Ellis (age 14) got the posioned brew and both died that day. They are buried in the churchyard in Marshfield, along with many of the Charles Ellis (lot 35, ca 1794-1887) family. Andrew lost his mind over the event, was institutionalized, but escaped and hung himself in a barn April 26, 1875. His death was covered in the Island Argus, May 11, 1875, p. 2. The other surviving children were parceled out to other family members. My great-grandfather Thomas Ellis and his brother James wound up in Tacoma, WA after 1883.

Can anyone look through the microfilms of the Island Argus, or other papers of the day, for Feb. 10, 1872 (and the aftermath) to see if the deaths were covered. Whose wedding was it? Who did the deed? Did anyone else die that day? I also want to get copies of the articles from April/May 1875 about the death of Andrew. Let's call it CSI-PEI!

I'm also trying to figure out the parents of Mary Ann Smith. I believe she was born in Scotland about 1819. She was probably already married to Andrew when the Charles Ellis family arrived on the island about 1844.

My father Ellis Ash, grandson of Thomas Ellis, was born and grew up in the Seattle, WA area, but retired to Souris, PEI and lived there for 25 years - a return to his roots.

LOCATION OF AMERICAN CLOTHING STORE SUMMERSIDE 1887
Would anyone know where the "American Clothing Store" was located on Water Street in Summerside around 1887? It was owned by John McKenzie, who was known as the "Champion Tailor" as he won several awards in international competitions. From information found in archived newspaper clippings, I think it was located on the north side of Water Street, somewhere between Central and Spring Streets. My guess is that it was quite close to Spring Street. Would this be where the CIBC building is now located? My great grandfather was a tailor apprentice there sometime before 1887 so I would like to know where he worked. He left the Island around 1888 and went on to become a successful merchant tailor. After John McKenzie's death in 1903, his son M L Frank McKenzie took over the business which I assume remained in the same location, but I suppose the shop might have been affected by the major fires that destroyed parts of Summerside after that. Also, if anyone has any knowledge of what life was like as an apprentice tailor, I would love to hear about that. I don't know much about my great grandfather's early life or where he lived in Summerside, as his parents died at a young age and the family was scattered throughout the Island. I wonder if an apprentice would sleep at the tailor-shop where he worked? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

FISHERY CONFEREMCE 1877
I came across this by searching Google for a PEI name. You can google this: Record of the proceedings of the Fisheries Commission at the thirty-fourth conference, held at Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the 7th day of September, 1877(just copy this into Google). It takes you to page 43 - just start scrolling down. There's over 2000 pages and there's a search box to the left. I searched for Souris and found these names and then I searched for some of the fishing towns and got the others. There are probably more. If these are your ancestors, it gives a nice light into the fishing business in that time period.

Second Session of the Forty-Fifth Congress 1877-78

MacDONALD
Greetings All,

I am looking for the parents of John S MacDONALD,born, about 1827, Dumfries, Dumfrieshire, Scotland, and died February 15, 1873, Blackett's Creek, Annandale, PEI. He was married to Geraldine UNDERHAY, born October 13, 1834, in Little River, PEI, and died June 16, 1873, at Howe Bay, PEI. They are both interred in Bay Fortune United Church Cemetery. It was believed until recently that John was Protestant. Recently we find that Ivan Charles \ Charles Ivan, was baptized at St. Columba,in Fairfield, Ivan Charles was the first born son, and to have him baptized Roman Catholic, and at St Columba, leads me to believe that John was Roman Catholic, and from St. Columba parish, as there were other Catholic Churches to Howe Bay, than St. Columba.

I think they would have married between 1901 and 1905. Possibly in Alberton, Sacred Heart Church ???

Doucette
Hello,
I thought I'd post about my tree, hoping that others who share my direct Doucette line will benefit. I took part in a DNA testing project to see if Germain Doucet, born 1641 and married to Marie Landry was a native born M'Ikmaq Indian and not an Acadian. The results were the he was a M'Ikmaq Indian and that Germain dit Laverdure Doucet adopted him. This has made quite an interesting change in my tree and anyone else's who traces their roots to Germain Doucet the second. For more information about this and the tests taken to find the actual origins of Germain Doucet follow this link http://search.yahoo.com/r/_ylt=A0oGdSmPpfZQFEIAzj9XNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTByZWgwN285BHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA3NrMQR2dGlkAw--/SIG=13257d4ne/EXP=1358370319/**http%3a//nativeheritageproject.com/2012/09/09/germain-doucet-and-haplogroup-c3b/

If you live in the Howlan/Bloomfield area and would like to share genealogical history with one another, I would love to hear from you.

Hi,

I am at a dead end searching for the family of Anthony James CAMPBELL, born 2 Feb 1893 in Ruskin, Kings, Prince Edward Island. From what I can tell, this is part of lot 51 or lot 52? (Correct me if I'm wrong). He only lived in Canada until 22 Sept 1909, when he immigrated to the U.S. via Vanceboro, Maine. Once in the U.S., he settled in Massachusetts and married a woman named Mary, also Canadian. They had at least 7 children: James E. Campbell, Mary M. Campbell, George Campbell, John Campbell, William Campbell, Theresa V. Campbell, and Patricia Anne Campbell.

I cannot find him in the 1901 census, nor any information on his parents or siblings. Any leads would be helpful, whether an obituary, info on other Campbells in the Ruskin area around 1900-1910, etc. Please email me directly if you have any tips!

foxes for the market. The boy is six feet high and
resembles his pioneer parent who stood six feet two inches
in his stocking feet and weighed proportionately. The
boy's mother was a daughter of Charles Wonscott, the
first undertaker of the camp, who now lives in Bishop,
Cal. Young McDonald is engaged in plumbing at Hawthorne
and expects to get in the money when real construction
begins by capturing some of the contracts.

McDONALD and PETERS/PITRE
I have just transcribed the obituaries for the family of Alexander McDonald and his wife Louise Peters. Alexander's parents were James and Priscilla (McKinnon) McDonald. Louise's parents were Peter Peters and unknown. Louise was born 1885. Alexander was born 1883. The married in Prince Edward Island and had four children there: Marguerite b. 1911, John Raymond b. 1909, John Austin b. 1919, Ferdinand Alexander b. 1917 - all in Rustico. There's another son Robert. They are in the PEI Baptismal Index except Robert. The family moved to Rockford, Illinois in 1920.

Several of them married and had families. They lived long lives.

Email me and put Alexander McDonald Rockford - in subject line if you would like this information. Thanks.

CAIRNS Christopher b. 1862
Christoher CAIRNS m. Isabella Stevenson SCOTT and had 2 children: Mabel Louise (b. 1887) and Winnifred Pearle (b. 1889). Children are with their mother on 1891, 1901, 1911 census. Christopher is with his mother on 1891 & 1901 census, not with wife and children.
1911 census for Isabella Stevenson SCOTT (b. 1856) shows her as widowed.
Comments on this site indicate Christopher died 1921 in an accident at Mill Valley Light Plant. Could this date be incorrect and should be 1911 instead or is Isabella's marital status incorrect on 1911 census?
Were Isabella and Christopher separated by 1890?

All help much appreciated in sorting out this puzzle.

FOSTER
Hello, I am looking for information on the "Foster" family that lived at Lot 64. I don't know when they settled there, but the 1798 census reported Mrs Foster as the head of a household that totaled five members. Soon after that date they moved on to Fisher's Grant, NS. I believe they were American Loyalists.

I am particularly interested in finding out where they lived before PEI, and any information available about their stay in PEI. I have some information about the family once they moved to Fisher's Grant, but know very little before that time.

If anyone else is researching the Foster family I would like to correspond to see if we could help each other.

MAC DONALD/MC INTYRE
1901 census shows Rev. John A. MacDonald as head of house with McIntyre Cousins living with him. Does anyone know how they are related to him?
There is a Hattie I. McIntyre born 1871 whom I think is Harriet Isabel McIntyre. There is a William J. McIntyre born 1874 and a 3 cousin (that is how it is stated) Iris E. Cole born 1887. Baptism records show that her parents are Annie McIntyre and James Cole. I believe from census records that Hattie, William J. and ant Iris' mother Annie were brother and sister. Found a possible family in Lot 13 in 1881. Parents were John McIntyre and Veronica Brown. They seem to move to Summeride. 1891 shows Iris and her mother Annie living in Summerside. Did James Cole die? What happened to John and Veronica that the children are living with the priest who is listed as a cousin.

I found Edwin in the 1864 directory, but I am curious about the Judge Davis who was named as his father. I have found several Judge Davis but they are more contemporary... The one I seek, probably would have been born in the second half of 1700s. I am interested in the DAVIS family line to complete the DARBY family tree.

PENMAN, MONTGOMERY, RAMSAY, MURRAY & COLE DESCENDANTS
George Penman, who died in 1804 lived in Port Hill, PEI on Penman’s Point, where the present Green Park Museum is now located. He was the 2nd great grandfather of Lucy Maud Montgomery, as two of her great grandmothers were daughters of George Penman, namely; Nancy Penman, who married Donald Montgomery of Fox Point and Elizabeth Penman, who married David Murray of Bedeque. Their children, Donald Montgomery and Ann Murray, were the parents of Hugh John Montgomery, Lucy Maud’s father.

According to several historical sources, George Penman was SUPPOSED to have served with Lord Rollo and was paymaster to the Island’s English regiment but we still can’t find proof of his service anywhere. It is also interesting to see where the redcoat English uniforms were listed as part of his Estate effects, but where did they originate from?

George Hardy was the first settler in the Cascumpec (Alberton) area of Prince Edward Island. He lived at what is now known as Port Hill, the sole European known to have been settled in the western part of the Island in 1769. By 1775, only one other settler, Donald Ramsay, had come to join him, and theirs were the only two houses within reach of the Elizabeth brig shipwrecked off the northern shore. The vessel had been conveying settlers and stores for Robert Clarke's settlement at New London, and Hardy was of great help to the passengers in their attempts to recover the cargo some months after the disaster.

He was an overseer of roads in the 1780's. In August 1787, he and George Penman, who had been paymaster for the Island's first British garrison and had recently settled on the site now known as Old Port Hill Farm, purchased the schooner "Mary," built two years before. The partners sold her in 1788.

In the List of Effects in the George Penman Inventory Estate pages 1 & 2, Mary (widow Cole-Penman) is listed as the Administratrix and it also shows the signatures of David Murray & Hugh Montgomery (two sons-in-laws) as Administrators. In the list of effects there are two Bibles or Testaments mentioned. Since the descendants of this couple, George and Mary (Cole) Penman are so numerous, it is hoped that somebody may still have either one of these bibles in their possession.

Benjamin Cole (1762-1825) was the stepson of George Penman and he married Isabelle Robbins of Lower Bedeque and they had a family of 11 children. One of their daughters, Sarah married John Montgomery, son of Hugh Montgomery and Mary McShannon.

Christie Penman, another daughter of George, married Hugh Montgomery, son of Hugh Montgomery and Mary McShannon. This couple had four children, Ellen, Donald, Ann Elizabeth and May, Ellen married John F. Cousins; Donald married Rebecca Donald; and Ann Elizabeth married James Townsend Campbell.

Nancy Penman, sister of Christie above, married Donald Montgomery, son of Hugh Montgomery & Mary McShannon. This couple, who lived at Fox Point, Malpeque area, had 17 children. One son, Archibald Montgomery (born abt 1789-1884) married Mary Ramsay, daughter of Donald Ramsay and Mary MacMillan, who were neighbours of George Penman at Port Hill and one of the earliest settlers to that area in addition to George Hardy.

Elizabeth, another Penman daughter, married David John Murray of North Bedeque and they had a family of 13 and at least four of them married their first cousins, children of Donald Montgomery and Nancy Penman.

Margaret Penman, another daughter of George, married John Ramsay (aka Justice John Ramsay) of Lot 13 and son of Donald Ramsay and Mary MacMillan, neighbours of the Penman family. This couple went on to have a family of 11 and lived in the Port Hill area.

Jane Penman, youngest daughter or George married James Townsend of Park Corner, son of James Townsend and Elizabeth Davies. They had no family but after her husband’s death in 1827, Jane requested the help of her two nephews, Big Donald and Little Donald Montgomery to help her out with the farm. This farm later became known as Montgomery Manor and it is here where L.M. Montgomery would go to stay with her grandfather, Senator Donald Montgomery and his wife, Ann Murray, daughter of David Murray and Elizabeth Penman. Jane Penman’s Will is listed on the Island Register website. Presently this property in Park Corner is owned by Robert Montgomery and is now listed for sale.

It is hoped that either of these two Bibles mentioned may still exist somewhere and provide clues to where George Penman was born and where he married the widow, Mary Cole. I am guessing that the Montgomery and Ramsay descendants in Port Hill area would be the likeliest candidates to receive the Bibles but it may also have ended up with the Murray or Cole families from Bedeque.

If anybody has an interest in the descendants of George Penman and Mary Cole or can provide additional information, I would appreciate receiving your replies.

They may have arrived here just after the American Revolution from New Jersey area or from England - Hanover, Germany area. A daughter Sophia Sylvis may have been born abt 1790 in the Murray River area/ possibly Peters Road and near Peters Mills.
That is where Sophia and her husband had settled after marriage.

MALCOLM MCDONALD
Great-great Malcolm McDonald was born in Prince Edward Island; according to the Canadian Census for 1871 (Nova Scotia), Malcolm was 70 years old; born Prince Edward Island; married to Effie? age 58 years; ...children were John 28; Johny 23; Michel 22; Sarah 24. These children were all born in Nova Scotia. The family resided at River Inhabitants, West Bay Road, Inverness County, Nova Scotia.

According to the N.S. Vital Stats, Malcolm McDonald who was born in Prince Edward Island, died at River Inhabitants, Inverness County in 1873 at the age of 68. (appears to be slight discrepancy in age).

I am trying to determine which family of McDonalds Malcolm descended from; there was the family of Donald and Ann Mcdonald that arrived in Charlottetown in 1808 from North Britain on the Tobermory; son Malcolm, daughter Catherine, mother Janet, sister Catherine; this Donald came via Mull in search of employment. Don't know if they are ours...

Any input on who my Malcolm may have descended from would be greatly appreciated.

John Livingston - Lot 53 - Update!
I thought I would share with everyone what I have found so far about John Livingston of Lot 53/54 in the Three Rivers/Georgetown/St. Georges area. I posted a query quite awhile ago about this family and here is what I have so far. The first time I saw this name was in a 1803 land conveyance document where he received a town lot and pasture lot in Georgetown and the research began..... I found his widow's will (Sept. 1853)for their estate and her name was Sarah (Sally) but I had no maiden name for her which made it really difficult to find additional information. It listed the beneficiaries as being a grandson Joseph and a son Malcolm. I did some research on the son Malcolm and found that he was a ships captain and he later moved to Salem, Massachusetts. He had a daughter Sarah Ann Livingston who died at Salem, Mass. April 1851 and was born on PEI in 1848. I then had a breakthrough and found the following document reference.

"Malcolm Livingston, son of John, of Fort William, Argylshire, Scotland, and Sarah (Campbell) Livingston of Southnist W. Islands, born in Townsend, Me., 21st of June 1814; married 1st, Sarah A. Newport; 2nd, her sister, Mary E. Newport, both of Salem. Came to Salem, 1834. Master Mariner. Admitted to the lodge 2nd Dec. 1857"
This is the link if you want to see it. http://books.google.com/books?id=qmRIAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA270&dq=%22malcolm+Livingston%22&hl=en&ei=rFdsTajFIMTogAfE3oX8Aw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=10&ved=0CFUQ6AEwCQ#v=onepage&q=%22malcolm%20Livingston%22&f=false

I had known previously his wife's name so I knew this was the right person. So there was alot of good information here and I found out his mother's maiden name, his Father's place of birth and Malcolm's place of birth. I found out later that John Livingston, Malcolm's father was also a captain, but I'm still not sure if this was a sea captain or a regimental captain. I think it is interesting that John was in Maine in 1814 because that would have been during the war of 1812 and there were quite a few privateers in Maine harbors during that time, so I am betting that John was a sea captain, but that has not been proven. So my research continued on to find Malcolm living in Mt. Vernon, New York and from there, the following end to Malcolm Livingston, son of John Livingston of Prince Edward Island....
"Poughkeepsie Daily Eagle September 14,1882:

"Malcolm Livingston , an old man about 68 years of age, while attempting to cross the tracks of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad at Mt. Vernon, tuesday was struck by the express and instantly killed. Mr Livingston was the Chief of Police of the Village of Mt. Vernon and leaves a widow and children"

So there is the end of Malcolm. He was married to his third wife Hannah and according to a newspaper I saw the same issue had his wife Hannah's death announcement in it and in the same issue they were auctioning off the contents of her house. So it looks like she met hard times at the end of her life.

Now....yes John also had a grandson Joseph. He lived in lot 54, Prince Edward Island and was a ship carpenter. Their property was setup ideally for building ships so I would assume he built ships there. He had a large family and I have had some problem in tracking down members of this family. By 1901 he was 67 years old and was not showing in the 1911 census document. Most of his family was gone from home in 1901.
It states in the will that John's Widow Sarah signed that they had three daughters. I know one daughter was Margaret Livingstone and she married M. James Allen, Mar. 15, 1827 and he too was from Three Rivers. The other two daughters are a mystery.
There is still much to know about this interesting family and if anyone knows any descendants I would certainly like to find out how to contact them.

TURNER: BAPTISM
Wondering if anyone would have access to the PEI Genealogical Newsletter Feb. 1992, Vol 15, # 1, pg. 23: transcribed Little York Circuit Register. I have conflicting information regarding the baptism of Stella Myrtle TURNER, baptised on 10 September 1897. The above source (I believe) states she was the daughter of Havelock and Ida Turner. Nevertheless, if I search the PEI baptismal database online she appears (same baptism date) with a different set of parents. I'm trying to figure out the discrepancy. Thanks. Anne

BALDY OR AULEY MATTHEWS?
Hello, I am descended from an Ellen/Eleanor/Elinor Mat(t)hews who was born in PEI around 1829 and married William Wood in NB around 1848, with several children resulting. Because Archibald is a regular name in the family and she was born in PEI, I'm thinking she was probably a child of Auley Matthews whom I believe left PEI for NB, and took at least one son, Donald. Can anyone give me any more info on Auley Matthews, or Baldy (not sure of the relationship - Auley's father perhaps?) Thank you!!!

HENDERSON
Hello, I am the 2nd great grandson of Isaac Henderson Sr. who was born in Caithness, Scotland about 1812 and came to Prince Edward Island with his father James and his brothers: John, James, Kenneth and William after 1820 but before 1837. They landed first in New Brunswick, but were on PEI by 1837 when Isaac married Margaret Ware. Isaac's brother Kenneth was a doctor and military man. He married Jessie Fergusson in 1845. Upon his retirement from the military, Kenneth's non-commissioned offices presented him with a bible. This bible was discovered in a home on Union Road during a renovation. The bible was in the possession of Ralph and Paulette (Mutch) Henderson, who was a great grand nephew to Kenneth. Ralph and Paulette lived on Union Road as recently as 2002 when Ralph passed away. If anyone of Ralph's relatives or friends know how I may contact them to see if they still have this
bible, I'd be most grateful. Contained within the bible are the names, birth and death dates of the Henderson family. I would so much like to have a copy of that information to document my Family Tree.
Thanks so much.

"Report of the Commission on Massachusetts' Part in the World War"

In compliance with chapter 367, section 1, Acts of 1924, the Commission has compiled a record of citizens and residents of Massachusetts who died during the World War while in the military or naval service of the United States or of the Commonwealth; also in the services of the Allies, so far as could be recovered.

This record gives in as compact form as practicable the data which the act calls for, — namely, to establish the identity of the soldier, sailor or marine; to enable a reasonable estimate to be made of the service rendered; to give the service record, residence, birth-
place, age at entry into the service, and names of nearest relatives.

This contains 5,771 individual service records, men and women.

The little I know is that she was born on PEI November 20, 1903 and died in Somerville, MA (USA) Feb. 25, 1983. My mother told me that Edna's brother Harold MacDonald was a well known and well liked politician (presumably on PEI). Edna emigrated to the Boston area some time around 1920, where she met and married my grandfather, Albert Holden, a native of Nova Scotia. No one here can remember the name of the town she was born in or has any contact with any relatives there. I was told she was the only girl in a large family and that an uncle sponsored her relocation to Boston to improve her prospects. Any leads or information would be very much appreciated. Many thanks.

I will be on PEI during the first part of July and would more than appreciate any information or leads about this family. Thank you.

UNUSUAL FIRST NAMES
Has anyone encountered these first names while researching a family tree? Any ideas where they came from? Most of the time when I've encountered a name that is new to a family, I've found that it came from a local minister - such as James Armenius Richey, Hubert Reid or Read, or John Watson Butcher. but what about:
TALMADGE (usually a man's middle name)
PENROSE (usually a woman's name)
ELVARETTA (woman's name)
EMERET/EMMERETTA/EMERETTA (woman's name)
KUTURA (woman's name, seen in the Dumville family)

DYMENT MANN HUMPHREY
I have put the initial results of my family tree research into a website at http://www.janedyment.ca. The main families covered are:
-Charles Humphrey (1802-1869) and Janett Bowman from Scotland to Lots 19 and 20 and New Brunswick
-Humphrey Dyment Sr. (1795-1878) and Mary Ann Ashton from Devon, England to Lots 13, 8, and 7, the New England states and Washington State
-William Mann Sr. (1793-1872) and Sarah Knight Effort from Scotland and Newfoundland to Irishtown/Burlington
Before posting separate family trees to the Island Register, I was hoping to get comments and feedback on the work done to date. I have lots of unanswered questions, probably too many to list here. For instance
-who was John Mann's (1834-1905) second wife, also named Elizabeth?
-Jane Robertson Beer's obituary says she was saved from a shipwreck on the way from Ireland in 1836, but by then she was settled on the Island with children born in PEI. What ship was she on?
-who was Ellen Jane Humphrey's mother?
-was the Elizabeth Dyment who married Cornelius McArthur a member of Humphrey Dyment's family?
I think I have found some lost descendants, so please take a look if you are interested in these families.
Thanks

Trainors married by Justice of the Peace in 1844
Hello,
I have a question I am hoping can be answered by somebody familiar with the Roman Catholic church of Prince Edward Island in 1844. I have ancestors who were married in PEI in 1844 by a Justice of the Peace officer. As far as I know, my ancestors on that side of my family were all of the Roman Catholic faith.
Why, then, would a Roman Catholic couple opt to be married by a justice of the peace officer during this period of island history?
Thanks!

I thought they married on the Island but I recently ran across something on Ancestry that says they were married in Boston. This is a register and I guess it is official, the date is October 1, 1876, the parents' names all check out and Isidore is listed as a Medical Student. Anybody know about this? Dr. isidore was brother to my great grandmother Dometilde Gallant who married Jeremie Blanchard.

ThE 1839 Monaghan Immigrants
Hello,

I am a descendant of PEI Trainor and McCaughey families settling in The Green Rd and Lot 48 areas of the island in the mid 1800's.

Since learning something of the research undertaken by Brendan O'Grady, I have become interested in knowing if my ancestors were among the 1839 Monaghan Immigrants since both families arrived during that time period.

I have been unable to pin either family to a specific village in Monaghan. I would like to learn more about their counties of origin before I embark on a trip to Ireland this year.

Michael McCaughey and Bridget Laughlin were both born in Ireland as were Patrick and Mary Trainor. Their children Elizabeth and Hugh married in Charlottetown in 1871 joining the Trainors to the McCaugheys.

Can anybody provide further informatioin as to what counties either or both came from in Ireland? Were they among the 1839 Monaghan Irish or had they come with the South Eastern wave?

I had posted a previous query (John Livingston - Lot 53 and 54 - 1803) regarding the family of John and Sarah (Sally) Livingston in lot 53 and lot 54 in the area of Georgetown, PEI. Like I said before...John was born in Fort William Scotland. John and Sally had 3 unnamed daughters, 1 son Malcolm and a grandson Joseph listed in Sally's will before she died. Joseph had a very large family living in lot 54 and I am not aware of where any of the members of that family are. I have managed to find the whereabouts of Malcolm and he died after being hit by a train in New York while working as a police officer. He was hard of hearing and apparently didn't hear the train coming. Malcolm was born in Townsend Maine in 1814, so apparently John and Sarah spent some time in Maine around the time of the War of 1812. Malcolm also may have been referred to as Captain Malcolm Livingston, because he was the captain of a ship or ships earlier in his life. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge. I find this is a very interesting family and I would like to see if I can connect this family to other Livingston families in Atlantic Canada, so any information anyone has would be appreciated. Of interest is the fact that many family members of Dr. David Livingstone have been documented to have immigrated to Prince Edward Island, so I'm always looking for a possible Dr. Livingstone connection on PEI, aside from the Morrison family of the Belfast PEI area.

MACDONALD RESEARCH
An obituary from "The Charlottetown Hearld" of 17 April 1895 states:"MacDonald At Springfield Lot 67 at the residence of her son in law Isabella, relict of the late Alexander of Blooming Point, Tracadie in 93year of her age." Does anyone know who she might be? When did her husband Alexander died? Son in law would be John R. MacDonald. His wife is Mary E. MacDonald. I am assuming Isabella is the mother of Mary E. Isabella was living with the family at the time of the 1881 census. Children of John R and Mary E. are: Mary Eliza married to James Shreenan, Loretta married to Thomas Shreenan, Margaret Isabella married to John Murphy, Martha, Flora Ellen, Charles Leonard, Allan (died in Boston in 1907), Frank, John Alexander, Catherine Ann and Alfred James.

DINGWELL and DUCHEMIN Marriage
islandarchives.ca at UPEI has a great site where you can read quite a few old newspapers on line. There's The Guardian 1880 - 1921, The Cadre 1969 -, and The Sun 1977 - .

As of now I cannot find a way to search it - so you just have to go through each issue. In the Guardian I started browsing each page and looked for the heading "Local and Provincal - News and Gossip from Town and Country" which is usually in the middle of the newspaper. Here's one I found.

Thank you Andrea for leading me to this website.

The link below will take you directly to the article. Otherwise go in through the top link and see what else is there.

http://www.islandnewspapers.ca/fedora/repository/guardian:18980824/-/The%20Morning%20Guardian%20-%2018980824

The Guardian August 24, 1898

The matrimonial vows were solemnized at Souris this morning at 8 o'clock between Mr. H. P. Duchemin, B.A., formerly of this city and now Professor of English and History in Pictou Academy, and Miss Carrie Dingwell, one of the most accomplished young ladies of Souris. The marriage took place at the residence of the bride's father, Mr. William R. Dingwell. Rev. J. R. McKay was the officiating clergyman. Mr. Ernest A. Duchemin, of the firm of A. Duchemin & Co., Charlottetown, acted as groomsman and Miss Laura McKinnon as bridesmaid. Many elegant presents were showered upon the bride from the hosts of friends with whom this popular young couple are favored. Prominent among the wedding gifts were a purse of gold accompanied by an address from the Presbyterian church, of which the bride was the efficient organist; a present from the choir and another, also accompanied by an address, from the bride's Sunday School class. After partaking of breakfast the bridal party boarded the train for Summerside whence Mr. and Mrs. Duchemin leave on a wedding trip through the Provinces, returning to Pictou by was of Annapolis Valley. To this clever young Island and his bride the Guardian extends heartiest congratulations.

MACDONALD RESEARCH
Reference book...."Lord of the Isles" by Hubert MacDonald published in 1945. Some of the families seem to be blended? It concencers the original Donald MacDonald who settled at Tracadie. He came with his brother Fr. James in 1772. I am trying to sort out the family of Donald's son James. The book says James married the first cousin of Hugh MacDonald of Georgetown (Hugh's parents were Andrew and Isabella MacDonald). Mary, his daughter married Donald MacDonald of Grand Tracadie. It then give possible incorrect list of children?
Dr. Jamaes listed as a son went to Boston. His death certificate gives his parents as Rondald and Mary so maybe Mary married Ronald of Gand Tracadie? Catherine died 21 July 1909. Her obituary lists her brothers Dr. J.A. of Boston, J.R. of Springfield and two sisters Mrs. J.A. of Grand Tracdie and Mrs. Charles of Blomming Point.
Checking the 1881 census there is a John R. married to Mary in Lot 67. Could this be a son of Ronald and Mary? Could Mary married to Charles in Blooming Point be a daughter? Could another daughter be Isabel Anne married to John Angus MacDonald of Grand Tracadie?
Other children of this Mary? Flora married to John MacIntyre? John James in Tracadie? Donald James in Freetown? Stephen died young and William died on the way to California.
Looking for hel in seeing what others think about what was recorded. It is found on p.111. The Ronald mentioned on p. 112 might be the father of the J.R. MacDonald

Christmas Poem
Hi All! I've been looking for a copy of this Christmas Poem for years now. It was in my house growing up but has been lost. When my father was a small boy, in the late 1940's & 50's, my grandmother would always read him a poem entitled 'For Jimmy and Me'. It was printed on a piece of paper maybe 2 1/2" x 5 and had been distributed by a christian printing company as far as I can recall. It told the story of a young mother at Christmas time having just lost her son 'Jimmy', "..I never knew a Christmas to be so sad..". It continued with a urchin boy coming to her door asking for some food and when the mother asked where his parents were he replied "..they say Mama's in heaven but I saw them carry her out. Then the man with the big brass buttons told me to move along and smiled when I told him I hadn't done anything wrong." She then took him in and when Father came home, the little boy was asleep in their late son's bed. "How could I turn him away when I thought of the dear little Christ Child with no place to lay his head..." It ends with Father going out for a tree. If anyone has any information on how to find a copy of this, please contact me. I would be eternally grateful as this small poem is such an important part of my family's oral history and I would truly love to share this my own children some day and tell them of their amazing Great Grandmother Vera who passed away at Dec 21, 1993. Happy Christmas to you all!!

MCDOUGALL, MARTHA P.
Seeking information on my great grandmother...Martha P. McDougall, born abt. 1865...on PEI based upon US census documents.

Probably the same Martha that lived with Daniel Gillis family in lot 3 on 1881 PEI census.

Married Samuel Ebenezer Beairsto (neighbor of Gillis and son of Ebenezer Beairsto) in 1881.

Migrated to US and lived in Maine, New Hampshire and Mass until death in 1942.

I have been unable to document her parents or any information prior to the marriage. ANY help would be greatly appreciated. There is no death cert available despite having located her grave ETC. My working theory based on circumstantial evidence ...[her daughter having the middle name of "Powell", her first born son John having the middle name of "Hector"]... is that she was the sister of Daniel Gillis wife (Eleanor McDougall) and daughter of Hector McDougal and Elizabeth Powell Hardy.....more information on that available if it will help.

"An accident occurred today at 1:30 at Sailor Bar Bluff, on the CPR, eight miles east of Yale, by which Peter McPherson and ? Coombes were killed and W. Geisler was fatally injured. All were bridge carpenters. This was an old slide which has given trouble before, and is the one which the CPR are disputing about with the government with a view to having it cut down to a proper angle. There was but slight damage to the bridge. The train will go out on time to-morrow. Today's train was cancelled and the passengers were brought back to Vancouver. The train only went to Westminster junction. These slides are of common occurrences. No train was caught in the slide."

MARSHALL
I'm trying to find information about the family of my great-grandmother, Kate Marshall, who was born on Prince Edward Island on 17 Oct 1870. Her father's name might have been William. She came to the US around 1884, married George W. Poole in Hampton, Virginia on 19 May 1893, and died in Hampton on 24 July 1959. I've always heard that she had Scottish roots, from the Clan MacGregor, but don't know if that's accurate. Any help in locating my "Nanny," who I knew and loved, would be greatly appreciated.

King and Queen visit to P.E.I. in 1939
Does anyone know if the train carrying them went all the way to Tignish.Looking up on the internet I found people had come from miles around to see them at Bloomfield, the train was supposed to stop but just went slowly through. We had at one time a picture of my dad (Peter Gallant) on a beautiful horse( probably one of Father Johns as Dad worked for him. Only me & my older sister remember seeing the picture and we were told it had something to do with the visit. Was there a celebration in Tignish or maybe in Summerside . I would love to find a copy of that picture. Anyone knowing of the visit I would to be happy to hear from you. Thank You.

MORRISON
Am looking for parents of Catherine Morrison b. 15 May 1812 according to the 1901 Census of Lot 54 when she was living next to the McCormack family in Kings County. She left PEI in 1874 with her husband William TAYLOR, and traveled to Eureka, California where he was a logger, farmer, miner. When she married him she left the Roman Catholic Church. Her husband was killed as was a son Nathan, and sometime before the 1891 PEI census, she returned. She reestablished her membership in the church and died March 1903. She was buried March 14 1903 at St Georges Catholic Cemetery next to the Church.
Her Will was written for her, left money to the Church, the Reverend Gregory McDonald the parish priest, and to Sarah Catherine McCormack, widow of Angus. We do not know who Catherine's parents were, nor who Sarah Catherine McCormack was. We do know Catherine Taylor's children in PEI and in California protested the Will. The document was "unusual" with cross outs and signed with an "X". Where are her Morrison family????

Hello, way back in March 2010 I posted a query regarding my great grandfather, Christopher Gallant. This was answered very promptly by a very helpful lady and I am now hoping someone can help me once again. The information I was given was that Christin Gallant was baptised in January 1836 at St Augustines, the parents were Isaac and Maria Gallant. I have now found Christopher's marriage record (in the UK) which confirmed his father as being Isaac. This, and the fact that the birth dates are the same,leads me to be 90% confident that Christin was my great granddad. My request is for any info about Isaac and Maria. I am estimating that Isaac was probably born around 1800.I would love to find their marriage record and Maria's maiden name.Any info will be gratefully received, thank you all very much, Lynne.x PS. Christopher enlisted in the marines in the UK in 1860 but I have no idea when he left PEI.Thanks again.

The members of this family are descendants of Patrick Whitty (from Wexford, Ir) and Mary Parker (of English descent), who settled in Souris in the late 1820s. Patrick may have come to PEI by way of New Foundland, but the facts are unclear.

GALLANT, MOSES
My 3rd great grandfather Moses (Moyse, Moise) Gallant was married to Ann Brennan on 1/18/1864 at St. Dunstan's in Charlottetown. The best man was Maurice Doucette. Ann was the daughter of Thomas Brennan (Charlottetown police officer) and Joanna Mackey, both of Ireland. Moses and Ann had two daughters, Mary Ellen/Florence b. 1/18/1865 and Edessa Lilias (Edith Lillian) born 12/4/1870.

I do not have a birth or death date for Moses. He was a master mariner (sea captain) and he died at sea before 1880. One of his daughter's godparents was Paul Paoli, also a master mariner.

Moses Gallant was apparently a common name and I have not been able to find further information about my ancestor. If anyone can help, please contact me. Even a small hint or piece of information could help.

Hi. I am making an inquiry to anyone who may have knowledge of the below family who lived on the Howlan Road and were members of St. Anthony's Parish in Bloomfield, PEI. This couple were my late paternal grandparents. I am trying to locate a photograph of my grandfather Octave Gallant. I do have a photo of my grandmother.

I am wondering if it also might be possible that the parish may have archived photographs of parishioners? That would be interesting. Thanks in advance. Gary

CHARLES and FLORA MCLEAN
I have recently discovered your site. It has a lot of useful info!

Have been looking at records online about my great grandparents, Charles and Flora MacLean, who farmed in Lot 55 from 1864 until their deaths. Have also seen Charles' will on this site and an undated map on the Island Imagined site which gives a description of the property. Would be interested in any advice about how to trace the land owners/tenants on that property before Charles and Flora arrived there from Inverness county, NS. The will cited the property as bounded by the Grand River on one side, Cumberland Hill Rd. on another and situated it between two other plots owned by M*Leans.

Have already looked at online census records. I will visit NS and PEI starting next Mon., Sep. 5. Am also wondering if where I can find records connecting the original M*Lean tenants on this property with the Selkirk lands.

One hypothesis is that some common ancestor came to PEI circa 1808 and that the sons, perhaps including the fathers of both my great grandparents struck out on their own and started families in Whycocomogh (Charles) and Sydney (Donald) respectively. Then, after the cousins, Charles and Flora, married, they may have followed the train back to PEI. I know that untangling all the parts of this tangle may take a long time but am interested in getting started. It is complicated since all the main protagonists have the same last name!

My grandmother, (Sarah) Ruth MacLean Maney was born on this property and emigrated as a young woman to the Boston area, went through nurse's training in Lawrence, MA, and married my grandfather, John J. Maney there. My father, John MacLean Maney, was the only surviving child of Ruth and John, a sister, Jessie, having died as an infant. Will appreciate any info that listers may have on this and other MacLean relatives who lived in Lot 55.

Children:
iii James Wilson b. ___ 1788, m. Feb 09 1841, Isabella Stewart, b. ___ 1819. James died CIR 1880.

In an archived message group I have come across at url:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DavisCornr/message/290

It lists the following information:

4. Isabella Hyde #8205 b. ___ 1760, County Clare, Ireland., m. Jan 15 1781,
John Wilson #8222, b. ___ 1750, Occupation: Carpenter, d. Apr 07 1828, Note:
Resided, Lot 32, York River, PEI, Apr 1798 Census. Isabella died May 19 1822,
Interred: May 21 1822, St. Paul's Cem., Charlottetown, PEI., Note: Resided,
Lot 32, York River, PEI, Apr 1798 Census. John: John's family are listed in
the April, 1798 census commissioned by Gov. Fanning: (2-1-0, 3-2-0), total of
8. John and Isabella were married by Rev. Theopolis DesBrisay.

iii James Wilson #8225 b. ___ 1788, m. Feb 09 1841, Isabella Stewart #8231,
b. ___ 1819. James died CIR 1880. James married Isabella Stewart, daughter of
John Stewart of "Apple Tree Farm", he was 31 years older than she. Married.
On Tuesday last,(9 Feb 1841), Mr. James Wilson, Elliott River, to Isabella,
daughter of Donald Stewart of Apple Tree Farm. - Royal Gazette, Thuesday, 16
Feb 1841. A note says that he was 31 years older than she, and that he lived
to 94.

Can ANYONE tell me if their marriage was actually recorded in 1841 or if it was the following year, I have been unable to locate a marriage record for the above named James Wilson and Isabella Stewart.

Is it probable that this James Wilson married Jesse Stewart, daughter of Donald Stewart and not Isabella Stewart 11 Feb 1841?

I have also found some information in a book titled: Marshfield and Area A Grand Legacy published by the Marshfield Pioneer Trust Fund Committee, Charlottetown 2001. On page 83 it has information about Donald Stewart and Descendants (Apple Tree Stewarts).
Lists Donald being married to Janet(Jessie) Scott and having 7 children
Christiana b. 1807
John b. 1810
Margaret b. 1812
Alexander b. 1814
Isabella b. 1816 married John Fergusson
Donald b. 1820
Jane b. 1821

I think Jesse may be a part of this family and is omitted from this information but do not have any evidence other than her death that links her to Donald as second daughter she would have been born in 1809 after Christiana and before John.

I am trying to find parentage information for James Wilson and Jesse Stewart, any information for the Wilson and Stewart Families that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I still h ave relatives in PEI so I understand. My father was born in Charlottetown Nov. 20, 1884 but grew up in Boston where my other relatives still live. My grandfather spent several years building houses in Boston but returned to PEI where he died.

CASEY/FARROW, FERROW or FERRELL
My name is Shawn Casey. I am looking for any information regarding my ancestors Denis Casey and Anna or Hanah (Farrow, Ferrow or Farrell; the spelling of the name varies) and their children. From my current research I have an 1881 census which has my relatives in Lot 2, Prince Parish, on Prince Edward Island.
At the time of the 1881 census the family included:

Denis Casey, male, age 50, a carpenter and farmer, Irish, born about 1831 in New Brunswick
Anna or Hanah (Farrow or Ferrow), female, his wife, age 35, English, born about 1846 on Prince Edward Island
Timothy, male, age 14, Irish, born about 1867 on Prince Edward Island
Prescilla, female, age 11, Irish, born about 1870 on Prince Edward Island
William H., male, age 9, Irish, born 25 Feb. 1872 on Prince Edward Island (my great-grandfather)
Hilleron, male, age 7, Irish, born about 1874 on Prince Edward Island
Francis J., male, age 4, Irish, born November 1876 on Prince Edward Island
James, male, age 2, Irish, born 16 September 1879 on Prince Edward Island

Also, there were two other children born after the 1881 census, who were:

Mary Ann, female, Irish, born 16 January 1882 on Prince Edward Island
Hannah, female, Irish, born about 1884 on Prince Edward Island

I also have found the baptismal record information from St. Simon & St. Jude Catholic Church in Tignish for four of their children:

Francis Joseph (baptized 24 Jan. 1877) Parents Dennis Casey and Hanah Farrell. Sponsors were Augustine Hackett and Mary Arseneaux. Baptized by Rev. Dugald M. Mac Donald.

James (baptized 12 Oct. 1879) Parents were Denis Casey and Hannah Farrow sponsors were James Casey and Ellen McIntyre. Baptized by Rev. Dugald M. Mac Donald.

Mary Ann (baptized 17 April 1882), Denis Casey and Anna Ferrow, sponsors were Laurent Perry and Blanche Arsenault. Baptized by Fr. Guay.

Hanah (baptized 1 Nov. 1884) sponsors were William Fitzpatrick and Mrs. Fitzpatrick. Baptized by Rev. Dugald M. Mac Donald.

My great grandfather William H. Casey emigrated to the United States and settled in Lowell, Massachusetts in 1896. He later married Elizabeth Ann Hanley.
I have been informed by my father that my great grandfather’s younger brother James also emigrated to the United states at a later time, and possibly settled in Lynn, Massachusetts.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation, consideration and assistance in this matter.

I know William married Susan Earl & have traced his descendants in Canada but have no trace of George since 1837 when he witnessed his sisters methodist wedding in Picton. He left his infant son, Edward, back in England who is my direct link. I have no idea if George stayed in Canada or came back to England. I have not traced him in England since his move to Canada.He married Mary in England but do not know if she went to Canada with him.

MACDOUGAL
I am seeking information on my great grandmother;

Martha P. MacDougal, born 1865 @ unk., PEI. (an alternate dob of 1866 is unsubstantiated)

1881 Census; 17 y/o listed as living with the family of Daniel Gillis in lot 3. Wife of Daniel Gillis is Eleanor McDougal of Hector McDougald and Elizabeth Powell Hardy.

23 Sep 1881 married to Samuel Ebenezer Beairsto, also of lot 3 and son of Ebenezer Beairsto and Mary Harding.

Based upon her living with Eleanor Gillis (I suspect her sister?), the use of family names (Powell, Hector) as middle names for their children John HECTOR Beairsto and Mildred POWELL Beairsto, my operating assumption is that Martha P. is the child of Hector and Elizabeth Powell Hardy...may have been Martha Powell McDougal and would have been the middle of three children in the marriage of Hector McDougal and Elizabeth Powell Hardy. (Hector went on to have children with subsequent wifes.)

ANY information on my Martha P. McDougal would be greatly appresiated. I would particularly like to establish her parentage. She went on to live in the US until 1945 but none of her documentation lists her parents!

McDonald
McDonald, Christina or Christy. Born Dec 17, 1862, probably at Brookfield, PEI. Apparently the farm was at the junction point of several lots, so it is listed as on lot 31, 32, and 24. Daughter of Alexander McDonald. Married John McDonald, of Lot 24, about 1881. Children Maggie, Christina, Donald, Alexander, Mary, George, Annie.Her siblings were Catherine - 1852, married Jesse Corbett; Donald M. McDonald: Alexander - 1858 (Alexander inherited the farm); John A. McDonald - 1871; Mary 1874; possibly Annie McDonald? John A. and Donald are not mentioned in Alexander's will, although Donald's daughter Fiona is.
I am looking for any information about her, I would particularly like to find the name of her mother. I have a copy of the 1888 will of Alexander McDonald. I also wonder if anyone has information on her sister Mary, I have a feeling that Mary married a Burns and moved to the Edmonton area. Family heresay says that Christy had a sister Annie who married George Mallett of North Granville, but I can't confirm that Annie was a sister. I am also wondering if her husband, John McDonald might have been a cousin. Several of the McDonalds eventually moved to the Edmonton area as did her niece Euphemia Anne Corbett Mallett.

Looking for a French source on the Annabella
Excerpts below are from "The Island Acadians" by Georges Arsenault, Ragweed Press, PEI (isbn 0-921556-77-2)

* 1768 census there are 203 Acadians of which ten families live in Malpeque .
* Some of the returning families after the 1758 expulsion had been among the first inhabitants of the colony in 1720.
* The main family names in this group were Blanchard,DesRoches,Cheverie, Gallant, Arsenault, and Martin.
*The Acadians had to wait until 1770 before they were able to welcome their first priest, Father James MacDonald .....
Does anyone know of an Acadian source regarding the 1770 shipwrecked passengers of ANNABELLA ? A momentous event such as this surely would have been mentioned in a personal or clergy diary/journal, oral family lore/tradition of the surnames listed above.

MASTER NAME INDEX AVAILABLE
Hi everyone researching, I have just found out about this new resource. It's the LDS (Family Search) new page. Updated and improved. We can access the Master Name Index for births and deaths for a certain date range.

Here's what to do - Fran

http://www.familysearch.org
Place cursor over "Search Records" (will get a drop down menu) and click on "Record Search Pilot"
Click on Search or Browse our record collections
Click on map of Canada

Scroll down for PEI but see all the other information.

PEI Baptism Card Index 1721 -1885 (browse images only)
PEI Census 1861
PEI Canada Death Card Incex, 1721 -1885 (browse images only)
PEI Marriage Registers, 1832-1888 (browse images only)

Marriage Index is just a list of Groom and Bride - and page to locate it on the LDS Film. But it will help with Maiden names of the Ladies. And you can use the page and scroll/browse through the marriages and magnify and see the actual page. Takes time.

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

You can click and go page to page or enter a number to move quickly forward.

You can magnify - see bottom to the right.
And you can print these out.

Terrific resource. Fran

His name is George McDowell and date of birth is 1851. We do not have any information on him prior to him moving back to England. Any information on him and his family would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Chip

McLeod/MacLeod
I am new to this hobby and trying to track my ancestors from Lot 57, PEI. For those looking for MCLEOD/ MACLeod info, there is a book "The MacLeods of Prince Edward Island" compiled by Harold S (Tilley) MacLeod, copyright 1986. A lot of info - met Harold before his death and he informed me every MacLeod on PEI was in the book, except my family as he could never find records of us. I gave him what info I could on my folks but thought the book might be of value to others, if you can find a copy.

FINLAYSON
My family tree shows my FINLAYSON relatives in Lot 59 in both the 1901 (Family #35) and 1911 (Family #34) Census of Canada. By 1920 Albert Angus Finlayson had moved to the state of Washington where he married, raised 5 children, and died. I would love to communicate with anyone who can give me insights into what Kings, Lot 59 was like during this time period.

For instance, was there a lot of hardship there or did great-grandpa just have a desire to move far away? Do you have any pictures or documents of this area or ties to this family that you could share? Do you have a link to a cemetery where Finlaysons are buried? A description of this part of P.E.I.? I have names and dates but they just don't satisfy my curiosity about what these people were like, how they lived, where they lived and worked and attended schools/churches, etc. A time travel machine sure would be helpful! And of course any information on John & Margaret Finlayson, their children Angus Albert, J. Simon, and Jessie Laura would be extremely helpful.

CAMPBELLS OF LOT 23
I am looking for information on any of the Campbell families that lived in the southern part of Lot 23. On the 1880 map of Lot 23, there are four families whose properties front onto the Argyle Rd. - Norman Campbell, Donald Campbell, D.E. Campbell and Neil Campbell. D.E Campbell was a son of Norman.

The people living with Neil Campbell were most likely his unmarried siblings and probably the children of John Campbell (b. abt. 1780) and Mary McKinnon (b. 1787)based on Brookfield cemetery transcript. John and Mary would have emigrated before 1819 since Neil was born in Scotland abt 1806 but his siblings were all born in PEI after 1819. There may have been other children born in Scotland or PEI.

I also know that an Alexander Campbell and his wife Flora McSwain emigrated to the area about 1830 and according to baptism records had four children. I expect there were more and wonder if the Donald who has property next to Norman might have been a son of Alexander. Norman b. 1810 was probably a son of either John or Alexander.

I have evidence that all these folks came from Portree, Isle of Skye. I would like to hear from anyone who has any knowledge of these families.

HENNESSEY/FARDY
Hi I am researching my grandfathers grandparents, John Hennessey and Margaret Fardy. They lived in Vernon River and married around 1860. Most of their children were born on the island, but my my grandfather's mom was born in Boston. I have used familysearch.org to see indexes, and I found a baptism index for Margaret Fardy, parents Peter Fardy and Esther Moore. Boston, Mass death records indicate John Hennessey's dad John was from Ireland; mom Ann Sigsworth from England; Margaret Fardy's dad came from Ireland according to her death record, and her mom Quebec. I may have found a marriage record for Margarets parents in the late 1830s in Richbucto, NB (?), not far from PEI. Was curious if these names are familiar to anyone. I believe their church was St Joachim in Vernon River. I may be making my first trip to the island Summer 2011 and would like to do some research. Would anyone be able to direct me to an appropriate source or with info on any of the above people? Thanks!

SAM BEATON's DIARY
Fortunately I have been able to obtain the original writings by my grandfather, Sam Beaton, Bonshaw, P.E.I. He was quite articulate as Sam came to Bonshaw as a young man in the 1880's from Hunter River where he was born in 1860 as the youngest son of Farquhar and Flora(Nicholson) Beaton, who settled in the Hazel Grove/Hunter River area in 1839 from the Scottish highlands.
Sam married Catherine MacNevin the daughter of a general store owner in Bonshaw. I think this lead Sam to operating a large Bonshaw General Store and Post Offices in Bonshaw and Hampton as well as a hotel in Bonshaw. After his first wife died at an early age, he married Fanny Myers from Hampton and six more children were born adding to the three sons from the first family. From his time in business and the Bonshaw school he became widely known in the adjoining communities from Charlottetown and the South Shore areas. He loved trout fishing and he did some farming as well as fox breeding. His writing covered activities from 1927 to 1945 when he died. I recognize many of the hundreds of people he had working for him and as passengers on his son Toff's boat that cruised the river from Bonshaw to Ch'town with loads of potatoes from area farmers. If anyone wants to know about a name mentioned in his diary, you can send me an e-mail.

PINEAU
I am looking for genealogical information, parentage, siblings etc for Alphonse PINEAU. He was born about 1925-1928 likely in PEI. He married to Marie Thérèsa Gauthier daughter of Pierre Gauthier and Amélia Joséphine Buote. Marie only recently passed away. There is an Alphonse Pineau resting at St-Augustines in South Rustico. The marker reads: PINEAI. J. Alphonse 1927-2000 (Solier). The date fits, but may be the wrong person particularly since his wife was laid to rest at St. Ann's in Hope River. Thanks for any help.

MACGILLVARY
Looking for more information on my Grandfather & his parents, etc. John Alexander Loughney, born in Rollo Bay, PEI on 15 Feb 1894. His parents: William J MacGillvary (b. 1860 in Massachusetts) and Agnes MacKinnon (b. 16 Jul 1854 or 1866 in PEI) and were married on 5 Mar 1989, probably in Massachusetts. William parents were: John MacGillvary (b. 1815 PEI) and Bridget Delaney (b. 1837 prob. in Ireland); and they married in Massachusetts in 1854).

William had a brother, Joseph A MacGillvary (b 1868 in PEI) who married Alice R McDougall/McDonald (b. 1878 PEI). They were married in Maine in 1899.

It seems the whole family moved to the US in 1900.

Any help greatly appreciated, and I will gladly share all info I have with anyone else who is looking.

thanks,
John

GALLANT/MARTIN/PINEAU/POIRIER/ARSENAULT
Hi,

My family is from the area in PEI (up west, as we might say) that is Howlan and Bloomfield respectively. My dad is a Gallant and his mother was a Martin. My mother is a Pineau and her mother was a Poirier (or Perry). These families listed are my principal families, but there are others. If you live in the Howlan/Bloomfield area and would like to share genealogical history with one another, I would love to hear from you. Perhaps you are currently doing some research and have come across a road block? If so, maybe we can help one another. Anyway, thanks very much in advance.

John Livingston - Lot 53 and 54 - 1803
Hi There

I'm doing research on John Livingston who first shows in a land conveyance document in 1803, in Georgetwon. He later had a son born in Maine, Captain Malcolm, who had business interests in PEI in later years. John had a grandson Joseph in lot 54, and in this same area I have seen an Alexander who I am guessing is John's other son. John's wife was Sarah Campbell and she was living in PEI at the end of the 19th century, but John is an unknown in any census documents I can find. I do know that John was born in Fort William, Scotland. This family may have significant historical signifigance for PEI and the home country of Scotland. Any information about these families in the Cardigan, St. Georges, Georgetown area of PEI would be very helpful. I cannot find any Livingston descendents of this family. I would like to know the origin of this family and try to connect it with other Livingston families in the Maritimes. I know what happened to the son Malcolm and anyone interested in this can let me know.

MACDONALD
Doing cemetery research at Holy Cross Cemetery (just our side of San Francisco)I came across a Teresa MacDonald born 26 Nov 1851 in Canada who died 5 May 1942 in San Francisco. She is buried in the same plot with Alexander Duncan MacInnis (Alexaner's mother was Margaret North Pole MacDonald). I don't know who Teresa is. U.S. census records show that she came in 1918 to California. She was living with her daughter Gertrude Florence MacDonald Potts. Gertrude was born in Victoria, B.C. in 1883. I know Teresa's husband's name was Alexander MacDonald. I suspect Teresa is from PEI? The only Teresa and Alexander MacDonald I found on the 1881 census were in PEI Lot 44. I do not know if that is this couple. Alexander and Teresa are on the 1901 Victoria census. She is a widow by 1911 and by 1920 census is living in California. Gertrude was married in Victoria in 1906 to Clayton Wilbert Potts. Maybe Teresa is someone's missing person? Maybe she was a sister to Matilda MacDonald McInnis (wife of Alexader MacInnis)?
