Notes for MILDRED COLWELL:

This is a document, written by Mildred Colwell's Aunt Maude Corkum,as to the verification of Mildred's Date of Birth and Place of Birth. This Document was SWORN to at the City of Moncton, county Westmoreland, Province of New Brunswick, the 30th of Sept 1942, and is as follows:

Province of New Brunswick

County of Westmorland.

I, L. Maude Corkum of the City of Moncton, in the County of Westmorland and the Province of New Brunswick, Widow of the late Eli Corkum, make oath and say:

1. That Millie Leach presently of Brockton in the State of Massachusetts, one of the United States of America is my niece. I am the sister of her late father and lived beside the parents of the said Millie Leach at the time of her birth and for many years thereafter.

2. That the said Millie Leach is a daughter of the late Henry Colwell who during his lifetime and for many years resided at Berry Mills, in the Parish of Moncton, in the county of Westmorland and of Margaret Colwell, his wife, both of whom are deceased.

3. That I was sixty-four years of age on the third day of October, A.D. 1941, and I was fourteen years of age at the time of her birth. I very well remember her birth as I was at the home of her parents very frequently and in fact almost daily, and during a greater portion of that time I assisted in looking after the child and on frequent occasions Mrs. Colwell would leave me in charge of the household.

4. From my personal knowledge and intimacy with the parents of the said Millie Leach (nee Millie Colwell), I know that she was born at Berry Mills, in the Parish of Moncton, in the County of Westmorland and Province of New Brunswick on or about the twenty-third day of June, A.D. 1891.
