BELL
Seeking to find the following Bell children - if came to PEI or moved to states or ON or remained in SCT - all children baptised in Inverary and Glenary Isabel Bell born Feb 22 1769, Duncan Bell born Nov 10 1770, Dougald Bell born Apr 19 1776, Donald Bell bron July 20 1778, Catherine Bell married my Archie Shaw - her line is known - Agnes Bell born March 21 1781.

Must be other Bells on and off the Island who are trying to connect their tree. The parents of these children are Archie Bell and Mary Bell married Jan 21, 1769 Inverary and Glenary.....both born abt 1735 circa....

It is highly possible that they arrived to PEI before their sibling Catherine Bell whom I believe came in 1819. It is even possible that the parents, Archie and Mary Bell (yes, both were Bell's) came with them to PEI without all their children....could Archie have remarried? Who is the Archie buried in Wood Islands born abt 1774. Does not appear to be many Bell graves to uncover on PEI...or I have missed them.

My Shaw tree is available on the register and shows strong connections to two different McNeill lines, and we have connection to McPhails, McPhees, McDonalds, McNevins, McKinnons, Beers, all orginally settling around Argyle Shore areas - Nine Mile Creek, Canoe Cove, St. Catherines, etc.

Thanks for any help.

CAMPBELL
I am looking for information on William James Campbell. He left PEI (c. 1900?)to attend the Bangor Theological Seminary in Bangor, Maine. There he met and married Clara "Carrie" Green, a librarian at the seminary. They had one child, a daughter, Louise Green Campbell, who was born in Cambridge, MA, on July 26, 1907 and died in Franklin, NH in October 1996, having married Stephen C. F. Rose, who predeceased her, late in her life. William James Campbell became a Congregational minister and in the 1920's served at a church in Ohio. He later taught in the School of Divinity at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Carrie Green Campbell died in Maine in the late 1950's; William James Campbell predeceased her.

I would appreciate any information on William James Campbell or on Clara Green Campbell, or links to their ancestors.

Many thanks.

CATHERINE MCKENNA
I am interested in my ancestor Catherine McKenna. Family stories say she came from County Cork in Ireland, but on all census I have on her she has birth place Charlottetown PEI. and an approx DOB from this would be 1841.
I have just found her marriage to Henry Burton in Halifax Nova Scotia 24 April 1869 (he was an English soldier)Then the birth of son Henry Burton June 1869 in Halifax, after which they returned to UK and no mention of the son again.
In the marriage info parents are listed as Patrick and Elizabeth McKenna.
Has anyone come across any of these people on PEI? Was Catherine born on the island?
Any information gratefully received

DONALD MACDOUGALL AND CATHERINE MACDONALD
Marie Dwan, only daughter of Catherine MacDougall and Richard E. Dwan and most likely the eldest living descendant of this circa 1790 Prince County pioneer settler family, will celebrate her 103rd birthday on 6 January 2007.

She is a 2nd cousin of the compiler of this family's lineage - Philip MacDougall and his sister Mrs. Patricia MacDougall Mella, past Treaurer of PEI. Marie would be a cousin of most Lot 14 families and their descendants with surnames of Brown, Cameron, Gillis, MacDonald, MacDougall, MacKinnon, MacLellan, MacMillan, MacNeill, Praught, and Walsh/Welch among others.

Her daughter, Barbara McGovern, 27 Richie Road, Quincy, MA 02169, will host a small birthday party for still 'bright as a button' mother. Best wishes and prayers would be appreciated.

PANMURE ISLAND PIONEER CEMETERY
Hello all,

I have today put in the mail a request to have the Panmure Island Pioneer Cemetery designated an ‘Ancient Burial Ground’ under the Act of the same name, which is administered by the Attorney General’s office of PEI. If granted, this designation will guarantee that access to this cemetery by the public will never be denied. As this cemetery resides on land owned by the Government of PEI, this access would probably never be denied anyway, unless the PEI Government at some point in the future decided to dispose of this land.

Another concern that has been brought to my attention, is that access to this parcel of land owned by the PEI Government requires crossing over privately owned land via a private lane way. This is not an issue. The Government informed me that numerous years ago they negotiated a deeded, public Right Of Way over this laneway to the public lands. So next time you are interested in talking a walk to the cemetery, please do so! (And let me know how it is surviving!).

As always, I am looking for information on this cemetery, including those buried there.... info on the history of the cemetery and surrounding area... email addresses of those interested in keeping touch on this topic.... etc!

Best wishes for The Season!
Terry

Island Register IRC Chat Channel
Since 2001, the Island Register has its own chat server set up on IRC. At the request of Marge Reid, a constant user of the channel, we are opening up chats to all subjects Maritime, covering conversations about all of Maritime Canada.

· Friday night Scheduled chats will be held at 10 p.m. Atlantic time (9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central, 7 p.m. Mountain, 6 p.m. Pacific, etc.)

· To help people get together at other times, Marge Reid will try to be on the channel at 11 p.m. Atlantic time (10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central, 8 p.m. Mountain, 7 p.m. Pacific, etc.) on Wednesday nights, and daily except Wednesdays at 1 p.m. Atlantic time (noon Eastern, 11 a.m. Central, 10 a.m. Mountain, 9 a.m. Pacific, etc.) [ snowball.darktech.org, #islandregister ]

The Island Register has its own IRC server set up at the above address - you can use either the on page IRC client that you will find at http://www.islandregister.com/chat.html (This on-line Java program will work with current versions of Internet Explorer, Netscape, and Firefox) - or you can use mIRC or another IRC program to access the chat site. I have recently updated this program to its latest version, so it will work even with the new 1.50 version of Java, which broke the earlier versions of the program.

Either way, it is simple to get on, and to have a text based chat with other Maritime Canada researchers. The more people that attend each day, the better the chats and exchanges of information will be. Please try out our chats. The regulars truly enjoy them, but it would be nice to have some "new blood" attending. Come and pick the brains of others researching Maritime families!

William Henry Alexander CANTELO (John Salmon, John Salmon, James, John, James, John) was born on 29 Feb 1868 in Grand River, Prince Edward Island, Canada. He died on 6 Dec 1930 in Grand River, Prince Edward Island, Canada.
William married (1) MOSHER.
Notes: Mrs. Mosher was the widow of Captain Mosher -PEI
William also married (2) Louise in 1894. Louise was born in 1875 in England.
I suspect that the two above wives should be reversed. I am looking for more info on the Mosher, widow of Capt. Mosher. I would like to also know her first name if possible. She may be the widow of Capt Michael Mosher. I have checked the Acorn Cemetery but to no avail.

Matheson, Roderick of Charlottetown
I just searched the PEI Baptismal Index website and found this record which had not been there on previous visits: Baptismal of Roderick Mathieson b. 1 April 1851 Charlottetown, Baptismal 31 Dec 1854, parents John Matheson & Isabel Nicholson, St James Charlottetown, Record Book 1 Page 21.
I'm fairly certain that this Roderick is my Great Grandfather. The birth date closely matches later census records and in the 1881 Isabel is living with Roderick and his wife Sarah Macleod in Charlottetown.
I would be interested in discussing this with more experienced researchers than myself.

McAulay
I am looking for anyone who may be researching members of this family. Letters to my Grandfather, Ronald A. MacDonald, from his cousin Velma have given me bits and pieces of this family but am having trouble tying them all in. I cannot find any baptismal info or census information for James' daughter, Teresa who was born about 1852. James Married Mary McCormack. I can account for children Sarah, Angus, Catherine, Michael, and Peter McAulay. I have yet to find Hugh, or my GGrandmother, Teresa in any baptismal records. Teresa was a twin and her sister may have been Annie.

Obituary

At McAulay's Settlement, Lot 52, on March 31st, James McAulay, Sr., of that place, passed away, leaving a widow and eight children (living) to mourn their loss. Mr. McAulay was one of the pioneers of King's County, and was born at Warren Farm, near Charlottetown, in 1810, his father being the late Hugh McAulay, farmer for the Governor of P. E. Island at that time. When quite a young man, James McAulay learned the trade of tailoring, and busily plied his needle and scissors among the early settlers of King's County. Afterwards purchasing a block of land on Lot 52, when it was in a wilderness state,
he lived to see the forest disappear and broad fields and substantial buildings take its place. Mr. McAulay was well and deservedly respected by his friends and neighbors, and for many years was a delegate from his settlement to the King's County Liberal-Conservative Association, of which he was a warm and loyal supporter.

Any info would be much appreciated.

Gaudet (or Gaudin)/theriau
The Tignish parish register contains these 2 baptismal records :
- 4 Apr 1880, Agnes daughter of Philip Gaudet & Ann Theriau.
- 6 Sep 1882, James son of Philip Gaudet & Ann Theriau.
Does anyone know who are the parents of Philip Gaudet & Ann Theriau?
I suspect an error in the family name. Might be Gaudin instead of Gaudet.
Thanks

THE 2006 GALA ST. ANDREW'S DINNER & CALEDONIAN ISLAND PETROLEUM AWARDS
With Island Fiddler BILLY MACINNIS:

The Caledonian Club of PEI is pleased once again to present the gala St. Andrew's Dinner and Awards night, on Friday, November 24th 2006, at the Holy Redeemer Church Hall, 7 Pond Street, Charlottetown. The reception gets underway from 6:30 - 7:00 p.m., with a cash bar and entertainment, followed by the piping in of the head table guests who will include the Honorary Patron, Lt.-Governor of PEI. Barbara Hagerman, chief Cecil MacPhail, president Fred MacLaine, representatives from Government and City of Charlottetown, and keynote speaker Mr. Gary MacDougall. The traditional roast beef dinner will commence at 7:00, clansman, Blair MacPhail will perform the ceremony "Ode to the Haggis."

With the swirl of a kilt, the chief of the clan, and master of ceremonies for the evening, Cecil MacPhail will take to center stage to do what he does best! This year's special entertainer Billy MacInnis will set the mood with some Scottish fiddle tunes. Billy has just completed another Canadian Tour with the legendary Stompon'Tom and according to the master, Billy is not only a great fiddler and keyboard player but has thrilled crowds across Canada, receiving standing ovations at each performance.

The club is thrilled to have as our guest speaker Mr. Gary MacDougall, Managing Editor of The Guardian. With his quiet Scottish charm and wit he will please the crowd with a special tribute to War Brides, remembering them for their contribution and adventurous spirit during the Second World War.

The Caledonian Island Petroleum Award will be presented to the talented Chassion Family from Souris, for the many years they entertained Islanders with traditional grassroots music and the contribution made to keeping the community spirit alive across the Island. The Awards are given to organizations or individuals who have helped to promote and preserve the Scottish culture here on PEI.

The Caledonian Club strives to keep the old Scottish customs in the forefront by presenting re-enactments from the 'old country', this one being the celebration of the St. Andrew's dinner, and recognizing the patron saint St. Andrew. All will be invited to raise a glass - with or without alcohol in a toast, and enjoy a feast in his honour. We invite all Scots to show 'their colours' and wear a clan tartan, in respect for the many pioneers who left Scotland and made a new life for their family in the tiny Isle in on the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

We are proud to deep the Caledonian Flame burning! Last years dinner was the largest on record with this year's dinner gearing up to be better yet! A membership table will be provided for new memberships as well as renewals for 2007. Dinner tickets will be sold in advance at a cost of $20 per person, and may be purchased from club members. For further information contact 368-737 or 675-2210, or drop by Master Cleaners, 155 Belvedere Avenue. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

COSTELLO
On the Island Register site, there are listed for the 1848 census of lot 31 four Costello families. John who lives in Bannockburn and Peter, Wm. and Matt+, all of Tryon road. John, Peter and Wm. are all mentioned in Frank Costello's "The Costello Families of Prince Edward Island" and appear in future records. Matt, however, is a mystery. I can find no other reference to him, anywhere. He was a farmer, age between 16 and 45. The household consisted of him, a woman between 16 and 45, and two girls under 16.

It would seem that some relationship existed between he and the other two Costellos of Tryon road, but I find no reference anywhere, except for a line on page 122 of the Costello families book, which lists a Matthew as a son of Pierce Patrick who was born, and remained in Ireland. Could it be that he actually came to PEI with the rest, married and had two daughters and died young?

If anyone has any reference to this Matthew, I would appreciate any information that could help to clear the waters. I wonder how Frank missed this one?

Hello, I am looking for someone else who might have done or is in the process of doing some research on the Skerry family of PEI. My Great Grandfather James Skerry 1879-1953 is the son of William Skerry Born Approx 1843. Beyond this I know that William's Father's name is also William and all I know of him is that he was supposedly from Ireland and at 19 was shipwrecked and the sole survivor of the wreck with also a small dog.They washed ashore at Howards cove, Cape Wolfe. Apparently he married an Anne Coughlin from West Cape. He also had a farm in Mill River later owned by Dan Murphy. When this first William was born and died and from where in Ireland he came is a mystery. I dont know the name of the ship he wrecked on and his death is also a bit of a mystery as apparently he was rumored to have hopped a ship in Miminegash?Or was devoured by a bear on the way to the "Cookes"? I do know he sired four children of which one was my ancestor William(Aug 15,1843)Married to Ellen Ford of Ellerslie. Also John 1852?-O,ct 28 1924 Married a Charlotte Leonard. James Skerry, Born 1849, died 1899, Married Mary Steele of Charlottetown. One Daughter Mary Ellen Born 1853, Married James Cassidy of Alberton. Any info anyone may be willing to share on any of this would be greatly appreciated. I would be more than happy to share what other details my family has collected to this point. Also any information in general related to the Skerry clan would help me a lot in my research. I am finding there seems to be very few of us.

DUNNING
My great grandfather was Andrew (Arthur) Dunning the son of John Dunning (born in the mid 1800s) of Clinton, PEI. I have a copy of the history of Clinton and a couple pages from the 1891 census but I would be interested in collecting more information about my ancestry, especially about where John Dunning came from. There is supposed to be some controversy about whether the family name is Dunning or Dunn (not that it matters now). The census pages and the Clinton history pamphlet both say "DUNNING".

I found a Donald Matheson, born 19 March 1845, place of birth Murray Harbor Road, father Archibald Matheson. mother Ann McDonald. This is a possibility due to the birth year and proximity to Brooklyn, but there are an awful lot of Donald Mathesons out there. Any info would be appreciated.

It puzzles me why I can't find information about my g. grandfather Andrew McInnis. Surely in a province as small as P.E.I., there were not that many McInnis' in the 1830's. The unfortunate part is that he left P.E.I. as a young man, married in New Brunswick and died there in his mid 40's. He had six children, but, only one lived to raise a family, that being John Henry McInnis. What we need is a McInnis P.E.I. clearing house where all info is recorded, no matter how insignificant. It disturbs me that the census, of that time, only records the head of the household, what about the originals, do they list all names in a housedold?

BURHOE / BURHO
I am trying to track down the Burhoe / Burho surname, from PEI to NB and on from there.

I have a John Robert Burho, b. 30 April 1835 in PEI, married to Dimas [sometimes referred to as Dianna] Jones on 2 July 1855 in Westmorland county, N.B. Dimas was born on 17 July 1835, daughter of William Jones and Lydia McLeod. Dimas (Jones) Burho died on 9 May 1916 at Steeves Mountain, Westmorland County, N.B. Her obituary was published in the Moncton Transcript on Wednesday, 10 May 1916, on page 2, and said: "The death of Mrs. Dimas Burho occurred at Steeves Mountain on Tuesday, May 9th. Mrs. Burho was formerly Miss Dimas Jones, the daughter of the late William Jones, of Moncton, Deceased who was 82 years of age, is survived by her husband, three sons, Irvine, Lionell, and Richard, and three daughters, Lydia, Jane, and Susan, also one brother, William Jones, and one sister, Mrs. William Jones, of Moncton."

I have 11 children for John Robert Burho & Dimas (Jones) Burho:
1. William Aaron, b. abt 1854, married Susan Nelder, moved to Maine and eventually to Minnesota
2. Duncan Irvine, b. abt 1859
3. Lionel, b. June 1863, d. 24 Jan 1922
4. John, died young
5. Lydia Ann, b. abt 1864
6. Jane, 1867 - 1953
7. Maria, b. abt 1867, d. before 9 May 1916 [date of her mother's death]
8. Richard, b. 4 June 1869, d. 1953; married (1) Jane Hope [1870-1894] and (2) Annie O'Blenis [b. March 1881]
9. John, b. abt 1876
10. Susan Minnie, b. 16 Aug 1879, d. 5 May 1946; married Wesley Whitfield Hope [he was brother to Jane, who married Richard Burho, above]
11. Margaret Elizabeth, b. abt 1887, married George Whitfield Horsman [note: this last child may be a grandchild, rather than a daughter]

If anyone is researching this family, I would be happy to exchange information with you. Any additions or corrections to what I have pieced together so far would be gratefully accepted. Thanks.

Researching Acadian Family Trees
The Acadian Research Centre of P.E.I. will be part of the open house at the Centre Belle-Alliance, on Sunday afternoon, October 22, during the Summerside Acadian Rendez-Vous.

Mr. Jean Bernard, Director of the Acadian Research Centre, as well as several volunteers, will be on hand to share information on the various resources available to anyone interested in tracing his or her genealogy. Visitors at the Centre will be able to consult the data base on the Island's Acadian families, including those from Summerside. Mr. Bernard is looking forward to sharing the information he has recently compiled on the first recorded Acadians living in Summerside.

During the activities of the Rendez-Vous, small genealogical charts will be made available to people interested in tracing their family tree. After filling in the charts with the information collected in the family, people can check the accuracy of the information they have gathered with the resource people from the Acadian Research Centre.

There will also be a panel discussion in English on genealogy and family history. It will take place on Saturday morning at 10:45 a.m. at the Centre Belle-Alliance. The theme of the discussion is "Exploring Summerside Acadian Genealogy." With Jean Bernard as facilitator, three local genealogists (Joyce DesRoches, Jacques Gallant and Richard Savidant) will talk about what they have discovered in the course of their research concerning the Acadian families of Summerside.

The public is invited to take advantage of these activities in order to learn more about their Acadian roots. The Summerside Acadian Rendez-Vous offers an ideal opportunity to explore your Acadian heritage. The Centre Belle-Alliance is located at 5 Ave. Maris Stella in Summerside.

MAC DONALD
I am trying to find the connection or the missing piece! I have a James Alexander MacDonald born 1854 at St. Andrews. Parents were Gabriel MacDonald and Ann MacDonald. Gabriel was born C1809. His baptism record lists his parents as Donald MacDonald and Mary McIntyre. Ann is born in Orwell and her parents are James MacDonald and Jane MacDonald. I know nothing about Jane. She is still alive at the time of the 1861 census. It is stated in the Maple Leaf that James Alexander counts among his first cousins Fr. Dougald MacDonald of Tignish and the Revs. John and James Augustine MacDonald of North Dakota. I can figure out the connection of the priests of North Dakota. They are the sons of Ann's brother Charles. I am missing something in connecting with Fr. Dougald. His parents are listed as as John Bornish and Mary Allisary. John Bornish's parents are listed as Donald MacDonald and Nellie MacDonald. Does anyone know the connection of James Alexander with the priest Fr. Dougald? Could Donald have had two wives? Nellie MacDonald of Allisary and then Mary McIntrye? Hoping someone can solve my mystery.

MAC DONALD
Alexander MacDonald (1778-1846)of Bear River had a large family of sons that were seamen. I read a posting that I think must have been written about 1881. It stated that the captain, and first and second mates of the ill-fated ship "Country of Richmond" lost a few weeks ago off the coast of America were grandchildren of Alexander MacDonald. I am wondering if anyone would know the names of those "grandchildren of Alexander MacDonald"? The posting also said that all of his sons except the oldest and youngest followed the sea. Who might the oldest be? Would the youngest be Donald married to Anne Fisher?
His son Captain Ronald died in 1845 so I know it would not be him. His son Captain John A. would not have had a son that followed the life of the sea. Could it have been Captain Roderick?

CFCY cancels Death Announcements
This week radio station CFCY, a member station of the Maritime Broadcasting System Limited will no longer be reading the obits at 12:30 and 5 P.M. This has been a longstanding tradition on the station - no more. This decision has a lot of people upset on the Island. If you wish to comment on this decision, their address and phone numbers are as follows:

95.1 FM CFCY
5 Prince Street
Charlottetown, PE
C1A 4P4
Main switchboard: (902) 892-1066
Fax: (902) 566-1338

Their announced reasoning is that many people changed stations when the funeral announcements came on. On the contrary, there are many people who turned on their radio to hear the announcements. I know my wife a lifelong CFCY listener has stopped listening to CFCY since these were taken off. She used to never miss the news and funeral announcements at 12:30 and 5. She is not alone. CFCY is no longer the "Down Home" station Islanders have loved forever. It is a darn shame when commercial interests replace community service. The funeral announcements were the first source for Islanders and could be heard hours after funeral arrangements had been completed. I know many like my wife - please let them know she is not alone.

MURPHY
Hello I thought I had this Census stuff worked out but I need help. My Grandfather was Francis Patrick Murphy. He was born Jun 02, 1901 he is a twin. His partents were Andrew Murphy and Lizzie Curran (Elizabeth) His other family members were Alice 1894, Mary 1893, Annie 1896, Ambrose 1898 then the twin boys 1901 and Lena Ruth 1908 she died 1909. When I look in the 1901 census the twin boys do not show up in this family when I go onto automated Genealogy and try to find the family under the 1911 census I can't find any of this family. Why is that? Also why would the twin boys not show up in the 1901 census? I would think because they were born in June but am not sure. If anyone can be of help please e-mail. Thank-you

O'BRIEN
My Great-Grandfather Peter O'Brien was born in 1829 (I believe in Ireland). According to the Census of 1891 for PEI, he was living in Lot 6 (O'Leary, Knutsford, The Brae) area. He is not listed in the census for 1901, which is the last census I seem to be able to access. I am assuming he died between 1891 and 1901. I have been searching for his grave for years. Family rumour has it that he is buried in St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Bloomfield PEI. However, the files for that time period burned in a fire. I need help in searching a death certificate for my GG. Any suggestions?

PEI 1934 MAP--CORNEY BROTHERS
I noticed a very interesting map posted on the wall of our local popular take-out, the Peter Pan, in Charlottetown. It is located on the end of University Avenue, before it becomes Highway 1, or the TCH . On the wall to the left of the entrance is a great map with all kinds of interesting information. Except it is too far from the counter to get an up-close look at it. Not only does it contain places, it also contains business names, and street layouts for Ch'town & S'side. The Charlottetown waterfront boasted about five or six wharves and there were also buildings drawn on the map. I would expect a treasure like that to be found hanging on the walls of our Provincial Archives, or other historic buildings, instead of this unlikely location, which is such a busy hotspot of activity, cooking etc.

Anyway, just wondered if anybody else has ever seen this particular 1934 PEI, black & white map, or knows where it originated from. I think there was a family named Corney who were business people in Summerside. It would be great to find out more about the map and if possible, purchase one. I would suspect the originals are long gone, but maybe copies could be reprinted. Hoping to receive some feedback on this particular map. If you happen to get hungry for a Burger in the Basket some evening and you are also curious take a drive out to the Peter Pan and have a look for yourself. Sometimes treasures show up in the most unlikely places..................

She was born in May of 1867 (quite sure of that date) and married on September 16, 1884 to James Deagle of Nova Scotia. They were married in Sacred Heart Church, Alberton, PEI. Her parents were Simon Gallant and Domithilde Gallant.
I have checked the descendents of Michel Hache and the only couple by these names do not have a daughter named Sarah. Also, I do not know the names of any of her siblings.
Sarah passed away in Inverness, NS in October, 1937.
I would love to be able to go back further than just having the names of her Mother and Father.
I had some contacts that I lost when I had some computer problems over a year ago.

BURDGE /BURGE FAMILY
Hi :)

I came across the website and it has been a wealth of information to me! I just cannot wait to come and visit sometime in the near future. It looks like such a beautiful place to live!

I had a brief conversation with Father Francis Corcoran from St Peters Church yesterday in my search for information regarding the Burdge Family by St peters Bay.

My great grandfather you see, was John Francis Burdge. He spelt it that way, and it is spelt that way on the 1881 census.. however his baptism which was in 1867 is spelt as Burge.? John Francis married my great grandmother, Mary Cook and they lived in Cambridge ,Massachusetts. Had 3 sons, John Jr, Walter and Edward... 2 daughters Rosella and Emily. Emily is my grandmother. She died in 1981.

Father Francis told me that the Burdges were rather well known in the area,and that there was a book written about them, but he no longer had a copy or knew of its name. I was wondering if you knew of its title or where I can get a copy?

Also, I discovered from the baptismal site that his parents were John Burdge who is dead by the 1881 census,and Mary Cleary (spelt as Cleary, Clairy,and Clairey).. so I cannot find her anywhere even though she had many children who's names I did find.
I guess what I REALLY want to know is.... how or when her husband died before 1881 and where he was born. If I could somehow find her date of birth and death,Mary Cleary and John Burdge Senior, I could trace their parentage. I was wondering if you had access to this info?

Any info about them or the Burdges would be greatly appreciated!
Thankyou!

I have a date of 13 May, 1939 as a date of death for my great grandmother, Teresa McAulay MacDonald, daughter of James McAulay and widow of Ronald Andrew MacDonald. I believe she was about age 80 at the time of death as she listed November 1853 as a birth date in the 1911 census. She was probably living with her daughter, Mary Magdelen Byrne in Montegue at the time of her death. Teresa and her husband Ronald A. lived in Peakes Station for many years and daughter Mary was postmistress until about 1924. Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you.

MCINTYRE/PLESTID
Looking for information on Daniel McIntyre, son of John McIntyre and Annabella McDonald, who married Mary Ann Plestid. Need to know if Daniel and his family moved from PEI to the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin. Daniel is my great uncle and he and Mary Ann were godparents to his nephew (my grand uncle) Daniel Francis McIntyre, son of Joseph McIntyre and Mary McKinnon. I have been searching for grand uncle Daniel aka "Frank" who disappeared. Yesterday at the LDS FHC I located a Daniel McIntyre on the WWI Draft Registry, living in Milwaukee. He listed a Daniel McIntyre as his nearest relation. I'm hoping it is him as the birthdate is only one day off from what I have on his baptismal certificate. But, I need to know if his Uncle Daniel moved to that area. My family was always under the assumption that he died in Colorado, but now it appears that may not be the case. I need to know if Great Uncle Daniel and Mary Ann had a son named Harry as he is listed as informant on a death certificate for a Daniel McIntyre in Colorado. It's all very confusing! Thanks!

FORD
I am inquiring to see if there is interest in organizing a FORD FAMILY REUNION on PEI, probably in 2008. Please send me an e-mail if you are interested.

This reunion would include ALL FORD people, from near and afar, as apparently there have not been many reunions over the years. There are many different lines of FORDs (Ebenezer line, East Point line (mine), and many others.

This will take a lot of organization and work on our various family trees but it would be well worth the time and effort, so when I receive some responses then I will contact several people to help set this up. I would appreciate your responses by the end of the summer or early fall as this will give me time to work on this during the winter.

Hope to hear from you all soon,

MacDonald (Bornish)
The following obituaries were found on Basil Campbell's web pages. I believe that Ronald Andrew MacDonald is the son of Joseph (Bornish) MacDonald. If someone is researching or related to these to men please contact me.

THE DAILY EXAMINER, MONDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1889
DEATH: MACDONALD - At Pisquid, on the 4th ult., after an illness of six months, which he bore with Christian patience, Joseph McDonald (Bornish), in the 74th year of his age. He leaves a widow, seven sons and three daughters to mourn their loss. May his soul rest in peace.

From the Daily Examiner, May 3, 1900

"OBITUARY At Peake's Station, April 8th, Ronald A. McDonald quietly departed this life in the fifty-second year of his age. The deceased was in his usual good health until about five weeks previous to his death, when he was suddenly stricken down by a severe illness, which proved fatal, despite all the aid that medical skill could render. His many friends will learn with sorrow of his sudden death, which cast a gloom over the community in which he lived. He was in early years known in many parts of this province as a successful school teacher having labored in that profession for upward of eleven years. His remains, followed by a large concourse of people, were on April 10th conveyed to St. Teresa's Church where a solemn Mass of Requiem was chanted by his devoted pastor, Rev. I. R. A. McDonald, P. P., and afterwards interrred in the adjoining cemetery. The obsequies were performed by His Lordship Bishop McDonald of Charlottetown. He leaves a wife, five sons and one daughter, besides a large number of friends and relatives to mourn their loss."

BEATON/SKINNER
I am looking for information on Catherine Beaton who married Hugh Skinner at St. Paul's Anglican Church in Charlottetown 13 Jul 1812. Hugh Skinner was from Troy near Port Hastings in Cape Breton and I am wondering if Catherine was from the Island since they were married in Charlottetown or did that just happen to be the nearest minister. I also came across her death as being recorded in the Summerside Journal 3 April 1884 as found in "From Scotland to Prince Edward Island" published by PEI Genealogical Society and so that made me wonder further about an Island connection. She died at Troy, CB 21 Mar 1884. She would have been born Abt 1794/5 perhaps in North Uist, Scotland. I have plenty information on the Skinners, but would like to know more about the Beaton connection.

McLEOD / MacLEOD
Does anyone have information about Alexander MacLeod, said to have been a catechist who preached to the Gaelic-speaking Presbyterians in the "back settlements" (identified as Peters Road, Lot 63), and his family? His wife was Mary MacLeod (maiden name) of Hopedale, Lot 22. I presume the marriage licence issued on 7 Jan. 1861 to a Rev. Donald Morrison to marry Alexander MacLeod of Lot 67, bachelor, and Mary MacLeod of Lot 22, spinster, refers to them. The bondsman was one William MacKay; they were married on 17 Jan. 1861, the witnesses being Donald MacLeod, Alexander MacLeod, and Allan MacLeod. Alexander and Mary do not appear in either Lot 63 or Lot 64 in the 1881 and 1891 census, so if he preached there, I guess he did not live there, at least during census years. Meacham's Atlas shows an Alexander MacLeod at Peters Road West, Lot 63, but this is not the right one. Need to find them. Can anyone help? Thank you!

JAMES MACNEILL/CATHERINE KITTY WALDRON
Edward MacNeill, son of James, son of Charles and Elizabeth Matthews MacNeill married Catherine Kitty Waldron in PEI, before 1853. James MacNeill was born Jan 19, 1820. His first two children, David (b. 1853) and Susan (b.1854) were born in PEI. After that, his next children were born in Greenock, ON. He ended up moving to Greenock with his Uncle Malcolm, brother of James, and his children.

It's possible Edward was the son of Duncan and Jane Campbell MacNeill. Ephraim was listed with James also in earlier reports, and moved with his Uncle Malcolm to Greenock, but when I located Ephraim's Greenock, ON marriage certificate, it showed different parents. In Edward's death certificate, it indicates Ephraim was his brother. It's possible Edward called him brother, because they were raised together. Ephraim and Edward moved from Greenock to Treherne, MB where in later years they died. So they were very close. I don't know where in PEI Edward and his wife were married, but would that show who his parents were? I have never found anything more about Duncan MacNeill or his wife Jane Campbell.

I've received an update from the family of Mary MacNeill,daughter of Charles MacNeill & Elizabeth Matthews, son of Malcolm MacNeill & Elizabeth Campbell (Duke of Argyll's daughter), who married James Hilson. They ended up in Shediac Cape, Westmorland Co. N.B. I will try to get the MacNeill PEI site updated soon to reflect the additions, but I'm still gathering information. In the meantime, anyone wishing more information can contact me.

BARBARA MCNEILL/WILLIAM CRAIG/JANE SHAW
Barbara MacNeill/McNeill was the daughter of Charles MacNeill & Elizabeth Matthews, son of Malcolm MacNeill & Elizabeth Campbell (Duke of Argyll's daughter). I think I've found Barbara MacNeill, who was married to William Craig in the 1881 Census on PEI. She was born in 1795. In the 1881 Census, it shows she's living with Jane Shaw, who may have been her daughter. Does anyone have anything about Jane Shaw, birth name, Jane Craig?

Mrs. Ray MacPhee, nee MacLean, Canoe Cove
Searching for relatives of Mrs. Ray MacPhee, nee Verna? or Velma? MacLean of Canoe Cove, Lot 65. My great great grandmother was Flora MacLean of Canoe Cove, daughter of John McLean and Euphemia McLeod. She married John Morton of Kent County , New Brunswick. Her brother Alexander inherited the family farm. Recently I found a reference to Mrs. Ray MacPhee, nee MacLean (the first name is illegible but it looks like it starts with a V) among my grandmothers papers. She states that her cousin had talked to Mrs. MacPhee, this was in the 1960'sbut there isn't any explanation of who she was. I wondered if she was a descendant of Alexanders and would like to find her or someone who knows of her. Connections were lost with PEI relatives within my grandmother's generation although her Aunt Debbie had visited regularly when she was young and I believe that she and her cousin were trying to find their MacLean family roots.

WIGGINS
I have a brick-wall and wondering if anyone on the list has this person in
their lineages or has come across her during their researchings.

ESHTER FLORA ELIZABETH WIGGINS.....Looking for the date of death & where she is interred.

Esther Flora Elizabeth WIGGINS, d/o of Rev. Abraham Van Gelder WIGGINS (
1804-1865) and Helen Diana TOWNSHEND (1806-1881), born 23 May 1840, St.
Eleanor's, PEI.,CA., bpt. 12 Jul 1840 PEI.

Her father was rector at Maugerville, NB, after serving as rector St.
Eleanor's Parish, PEI.

Esther was confirmed 9 Aug 1857, Maugerville Anglican Church, Maugerville,
NB.
Esther F.E. Wiggins was named in her father's will as a living daughter in
1865, but NOT named / remembered with a token with her other siblings &
sister-in-laws in one of her sister's Will in Jan 1876.

The above facts seem to point that she may have died between 1865 & 1876 and
possibly New Brunswick or Prince Edward Island. Her mother returned to PEI
after her father's death while he was visiting the Island in 1865.

Appreciate any help on this query.

QUINN -- Lot 22 / Hope River from Co. Monaghan, Ireland?
The QUINN and BUTLER families of Lot 22, Hope River, PEI, are my lines -- which I have been busy researching for years. Associated families are BUTLER, EARLY, BASSETT, TRAINOR, BROWN, COSGROVE, PEARDON, FINDLAY, TAMLYN and many others. I'll be publishing my research to date here soon; the best PEI geneology website by far. If you know to be connected to the original Lot 22 settlers with these names, or have any helpful information at all, I'd love to hear from you. Michael QUINN and wife Martha EARLY were likely among the settlers from County Monaghan, Ireland. PEI records in which they appear (in the baptisms of their children) date from the early 1840's. Their son, Bernard QUINN, married Mary Ellen BUTLER, the daughter of William BUTLER (born in Newfoundland) and Catherine BASSETT. Has anyone linked any of the Lot 22 settler families back to a specific record (birth, baptism, marriage, death) in County Monaghan? If so, please contact me, regardless of any connection to my lines. Thanks in advance, Bill

MCCORMACK/MCDONALD
I am searching for my 2nd great grandmother's, Julia Ann MCCORMACK, PEI family. Her father was John MCCORMACK b. abt 1819 and her was Dorothea MCDONALD b. abt 1818. I have been working with my cousins in Gloucester, Massachusetts, USA, and we have put together who we think are the children of John and Dorothea McCORMACK. They are as follows: Allan b. 24 Dec 1844, Dominique b. 22 Oct 1848, Leo b. 22 Jun 1852, Catharine b. abt 1853, Julia Ann b. 27 Mar 1855, Mary M. b. abt 1857, Stephen abt 1863, John b. (?). There are indications there is a possibility of two additional sons (names unknown)that belong to this family. The only information I have is they were lost at sea.

My 2nd great grandmother came to the U.S. in 1872 and lived in Massachusetts, in the Lowel/Boston area. It appears she may have traveled back to PEI in 1881. She is listed with her family in the 1881 Canadian Census. On May 11, 1889, she married George Washington YOUNG and together they lived in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

If you think we may be related you can view my family history on rootsweb.com. Type in "Julia Ann McCormack" into the rootsweb's banner and follow the program's instructions.

Thanks for any help you can provide me in reconnecting with my family in PEI

ARCHIVES SITE MOVING?
Without notice, the archives site appears to have been moved from the PEI Education server to the Community and Cultural affairs site. All attempts to connect to pages from their old site on the Dept. of Education server this weekend have failed. This was noticed Saturday, and believed to have taken place within the past few days. The new site is at:

http://www.gov.pe.ca/cca/index.php3?number=1004626&lang=E

or follow the link above...

Many of their internal links do not work yet - most notably their link to the census search, and at this stage, many of the virtual exhibits and research guides which were on the old site are no longer available. Typical government! Arggh!

I will keep checking out their site, and when the site has stabilized will change the dozens of links on the Register to their pages. I apologize for any inconvenience to our users, but please understand this is beyond my control. Sometimes government decisions to move sites are made without understanding the full extent of the effect moving a site will mean to users. The new site looks nice, but lacks many of the articles and features which made the old site so valuable. In the very least, the site designers should have made certain all features were present and working before removing the old site.

Update, Jun 06, 2006 - the census search is again active at its old address. Whether it is going to stay there or be moved to the new site, only time will tell. Unfortunately without any communication to tell us what is in the plans, there is no way to tell for sure. There is a link from the new site to the census, however, currently it is referencing the census database on the old server. I will keep monitoring the situation, and try to continue apprising you of the situation as we see it.

Children Capt James Robinson b.c. 1833 and sister Catherine b.c. 1832 left PEI for New Zealand on "Pakeha" 1864. James Robinson then living St Peters Road, Charlottetown. They are believed to have come from a large family who remained on PEI. Names unknown, apart from a bother Pat who was said to be a minister of religion. Correspondence since 1984 with PEI Heritage Foundation, Archives of United Church of Canada and other Robinson researchers, suggests he could be Patrick H Robinson who disappeared after two year's service, one at Red Deer and one at Morris. If I can confirm he was a sibling and find more information on him, I might be able to confirm where he was born. James and Catherine's marriage/death certificates say they were born PEI, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia! Any information/suggestions as to further research gratefully received.

MCKENZIE AND HAAS
Chicago Tribune - March 22, 1928

"Joseph F. Haas' Widow Dies of Broken Heart - Passes away week after husband's death.

Heartbroken over the death a week ago of her husband, Joseph F. Haas, county recorder of deeds, Mrs. Minnie McKenzie Haas, 68 years old, died yesterday in her home, 2458 Logan boulevard. Mr. Haas died on March 14, after an illness in which she had nursed him unavailingly. They were married 51 years ago.

Mrs. Haas, who collapsed the night following Mr. Hass's death, had repeatedly in the last week expressed a desire for death, that she might join her husband.

Her last words were: "I am happy to be going; now I will be with papa." Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. Harry E. Hoff and Mrs. Barbara Riddel; three grandchildren, McKenzie Riddel, Barbara Riddel, and Joseph Robert Hoff, all of whom were with her when she died. Dr. Frederick Tice and Dr. Benjamin Feltenstein, who were also present, ascribed Mrs. Haas's death to a broken heart and her refusal to resist her illness.

Mrs. Haas was born of Scotch parentage on Prince Edward Island, February 14, 1860, and came to Chicago when a girl. Here she met Mr. Haas and was married to him fifty-one years ago in June, at the Moody church. Their mutual devotion through their long married life was often spoken of by their many friends.

Funeral arrangements have not been completed. Burial will be beside her husband in Graceland cemetery."

GILLIS/GILLIES MACLELLAN
Hi - I am back after being gone for 4 years. I am still looking for information on my great,great grandmother and grandfather. John Gillies was born about 1829 in Scotland but someone wrote to me and said he could have been born in PEI. He married Elizabeth MacLellan (someone suggested that perhaps Elizabeth is not her real first name that maybe it was Mary Elizabeth) who was born about 1827 or 1830. She was from Summerside. (maybe I can find school records). They had four children: John Charles Gillies born 1858 on PEI, Sarah Jane Gillies born 1859 (I have information on her because she came to Massachusetts to live; Annie Gillies born 1863 (this is my great grandmother) and Dan Angus Gillies born 1866. The 1881 census from Digby states Sarah, Annie and Dan Angus were born in Nova Scotia. However, I did find out that two children were baptized at St. Mary's Church in Indian River. So maybe only the last two children were born in Nova Scotia. There must relatives still left of John and Elizabeths. I hope someone can help. I want to thank all the nice people who responded to me four years ago. Believe it or not but I still have all their correspondence. I hope after this 4 year span that I have some relatives now searching their relatives. Thanks again for everything. Every little bit helps. Elizabeth

I'm looking for any information on John Daly & Margaret Ellen Slavin, of Iona, PEI.

John born June 7, 1873 married Margaret born in Feb. of 1877. They had 4 children:
Frank, Albert, Margaret, & Martin

Frank died in Miscouche possibly between 1908-1911 at approx 17~18yrs of age.

At some point John went "Out West" and was there for quite some time. Eventually he sent money home for Margaret and the children to join him, but instead of going west she went to her sister in Roxbury, Mass. John was never heard from again.
If anyone knows the fate of these individuals or their children I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.

Old Songs of Iona, PEI

Capt. Daly would be Martin "Mat" Daly of Iona, PEI, born 1858 and was known for sailing around Cape Horn in a wooden boat. I believe he died in NY State. He was the son of James Daly 1830-1891 & Annie Burns 1830-1902.

MACKENZIE - DR. ELIZA (ELIZABETH) MARGARET MACKENZIE
I am looking for information on Dr. Eliza (Elizabeth) Margaret MacKenzie (1879-1937). She was the daughter of Donald MacKenzie and Christie MacRae of Flat River, PEI and is said to have been the first woman to practice medicine in Charlottetown, PEI. She graduated from Dalhousie Medical School in the spring of 1904, and it is believed that she opened her practice in Charlottetown shortly thereafter. Eliza served as a nurse overseas during World War I, and later spent several years nursing at St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City.

Any information about Eliza, particularly related to her time as a doctor in Charlottetown or her nursing career in New York, would be greatly appreciated. I am conducting this research for a Dictionary of Canadian Biography article, so any clues or suggestions for people/sources would be wonderful.

MC/MACKENZIE
I am trying to locate descendants of Donald/Daniel MacKenzie and Ada Hall. Donald, known as Dan or Daniel, moved to the Boston area and married Ada Hall, from Nova Scotia, about 1894. They had 6 children, Harold, born in 1895; Everett, born in 1899; Lottie, born in 1900, married Lawrence Holbrook; Marion, born in 1902; Helen, born in 1905; and Gertrude, born unknown. After Ada died in 1908, Everett and Marion went to live with Dan's parents in Canoe Cove, PEI, while the other 4 children were brought up by Ada's parents in Enfield, N.S. At one point, Lottie lived in Bible Hill, N.S. Most of the daughters seem to have returned to the Boston area. Does anyone know where these MacKenzies moved to, or any other information about them?

MacLEAN
Re my previous queries in the past couple of weeks---I am still searching for McLEAN / MacLEAN information regarding Allan McLEAN and wife Christy STEWART (both born in Scotland) that were parents of John L. McLEAN born 1842 Lot 48.

I am hoping to learn more about Allan McLEAN who was born about 1805 in Scotland. Who were his parents?? and when did the family come to PEI? Or did Allan McLEAN come as an adult? It appears to be him and wife Christy / Christina STEWART on the 1881 CAnadian census, with a 'daughter' Christy MacKENZIE and her son in the household.

I have found another record about which I am curius. Does someone have more nformation about the following obituary showing an Allan MacLEAN, died 1870 and he came to PEI about 1808. Perhaps he could be the father of Allan MacLEAN who was born about 1805 in Scotland, then came to PEI and married Chrsity STEWART.

Thanks for any info about the following, from one of the Register links--"Natives of Mull" obituaries from PEI newspapers:

Patriot 24 Dec. 1870:

MACLEAN: - At York River on 13th ALEX. MACLEAN Ae 93. Native of Mull. Emig. 1808.

Guestbook Spamming
Hi All:

Those who visited the guestbook this morning were treated to another mess of robot produced queries advertising some very questionable sites. This happens from time to time, and RCMP are monitoring the book for future attempts to do this.

Countermeasures have again been taken, but it will only be a matter of time before the spammers again figure them out. Meanwhile, should you ever notice queries like this in the book, fell free to report them to me, but realize that if such a query is on for some time, the only reason I haven't removed it, is that I am away from the computer, and am not yet aware they have been left.

I took off about 10 instances yesterday, and again about 5 today...

Hopefully it will quiet down for a while.... Meanwhile IP's are being traced, and they will eventually be caught.

Re my previous posting today about McLEANs in various lots ... here are some more. I'm hoping someone will have information about these McLEANs and the other surnames involved ...... and how or if they relate to Allan McLEAN and Christy STEWART and their son John L. McLEAN and other children. (see previous posting for April 20) Below records copied from PEI records found online here.

Lot 21
Lauchlin MacLEANE (McLAIN, McLEAN) Secretary to the Earl of Shelburne and Hugh (Henry M. MacLEANE (etc.), Lieutenant. In 1770 the owners were Robert CLARK and Robert CAMPBELL then after 1775 Robert CLARK, Merchant, became sole owner.

Lot 23
Allan MacLEANE (McLAIN, etc.) and Lauchlin MacLEANE (see Lot 21.) After 1775 Allan MacLEAN (sic) now listed as Major, and by 1806, the lot was sold or transferred to William WINTER. In 1810, it was purchased by David STEWART RENNIE.

Note: Ian R. ROBERTSON, "The P.E.I. Land Commission of 1860", pg. 41-45 gives the following line of ownership of Lot 23 - William WWINTER received ownership of the lot on or before 1783, sold it to Abraham KIRKHAM in 1805. David RENNIE bought it in 1810.

Lot 24
Charles LEE, Esq., Lieutenant-Colonel and Francis MacLEAN (MacLEAN, etc.). In 1781, it was sold for arrears of quit rent, and in 1783 some land was granted to Loyalists. By 1806 it was sold or transferred again.

Thank you for any help.

Re my April 16 posting about John L. McLEAN (b 1842 PEI, parents from Scotland) and wife Agnes E. (nee MORROW) b 1844 PEI, parents from PEI ....

Born Lot 48

** Mother Christy Stewart.

Allan and Christy had at least 3 other children...Anne b. 1837...Charles b. 1845....Elizabeth b. 1848.

Does anyone know about this family?
===============

It is possible that the parents shown above, Allan McLEAN b about 1805 Scotland and wife Christy STEWART (also found 1881 Canadian Census,) are the parents of the above John L. McLEAN born about 1842? Does anyone have information to confirm or deny this possibility?

Pat Townshend Alnes and Fulton "Tiny" Underhay, along with Kathie Sencabaugh have jumped in to help me and found a great deal of information. Thanks to all of you! Also Don Lowe has provided info and suggested I contact Joanne Reid ... are you out there Joanne?

Does anyone have further information about the below people? (Pat Alnes provided this info)

In the 1881 census:
** Allan (MacLEAN) age 76 and Christy (STEWART) age 62 McLean residing on Lot 67. .
** Christy Mclean widow. age 79 in 1881 census on Lot 55.
** Christy McLean widow age 64 Lot 64.

MACLEAN / McLEAN, MORROW, TOWNSHEND, WILSON, DAVIS
This is an update to my query yesterday, re John L. McLEAN and Agnes E.NN line from PEI, as thanks to another researcher from TN who spotted my query, I have new information found by her in Massachusetts birth and death records.

John L. McLEAN b about 1841 PEI, a carpenter, with parents from Scotland married (circa 1865) to Agnes E. MORROW b about 1843-44 PEI (parents from PEI) and Agnes' mother was Mary TOWNSHEND mar. ?? MORROW no doubt in PEI in ?? year about, plus or minus, 1820.

John L. McLEAN and Agnes E.MORROW had a son William Wallace McLEAN b October 1868 Boston, MA.

William Wallace McLEAN married Ella F. WILSON, born in Maine and, though she and husband were living in MA, Ella had at least 1 child born 1904 in Maine--their daughter Miriam, so Ella may have had WILSON family still in Maine.

In 1910 MA census an uncle-in-law Edward C. DAVIS was in their household, indicating perhaps that Edward C. DAVIS had been married (1 marriage) to a sister of Ella's.

Hoping the new info and surnames gives me a lead to John L. McLEAN / MacLEAN and his parents from Scotland who were in PEI 1841 ... arriving there from Scotland in ?? unknown year.

Audrey in TN

Agnes E. MORROW MacLEAN / McLEAN died at age 46 in Boston, MA.

Looking for descendants of John McIntyre & Annabella MacDonald, possibly of Tracadie area. I have been hunting for a death certificate for their grandson, Daniel Francis McIntyre, and I may have found him through the Colorado Vital Records folks, but I need to know if he had a McIntyre cousin named Harry as that is the name of the "Informant" on the death certificate I received. From Probate records, the Harry on the certificate was supposedly born in Iowa. I know nothing about the nieces and nephews of Joseph McIntyre, son of John and Annabella and father of Daniel, so if anyone can help out with names for Joseph's siblings...brothers and their wives and children, it could very possibly help to solve a big mystery.

Trying to find McLEAN family from Scotland with a son John L. born 1841 PEI.

Several rellow researchers with southern USA McLAIN / McCLAIN lines and I have participated in DNA testing that linked us (lines from NC that moved through VA, IL, KY and settled in West TN in Weakley County Tennessee). These lines have a common ancestor in North Carolina that we have yet to identify, except for Charles McCLAIN b about 1785 NC who married Elizabeth UNKNOWN, but it appears that Charles's family were in USA at least by mid to late 1700s, possibly earlier. The father's name 'might' be Joseph, but no proof of that.

DNA also matched us exactly on 37 markers with a MacLEAN / McLEAN line that seems to have come directly from Scotland to Prince Edward Island and then to Massachusettes. John L. McLEAN on the 1880 census is as far back as we can track on this line and he states he was born 1841 PEI, and wife Agnes E. UNKNOWN McLEAN was born 1844 PEI. John L.'s parents are from Scotland he says. This would mean that his parents perhaps came as early as 1790 or as late as 1840 to PEI.

Does anyone recognize this family?

We need birth records for 1840 / 1841 in order to find John L.McLEAN's birth, and marriage records 1861-1868 to find his marriage to Agnes E. UNKNOWN, and of course if we identify the parents of John, we need immigration records. Any help or direction for finding these records is appreciated. Even though John and Agnes have a son William W. (Walter) McLEAN born 1869 Massachusetts shown on the 1880 census, we can't locate the family on the 1870 census in MA. Below is the family as it appears on the 1880 USA census:

1880 Winchester, Middlesex, Massachusetts
ED 385, pg. 53, Supervisors dist. 60, June 21, 1880, House 525 at bottom of page . . . and continued to top of next page....

McLEAN, John L., white, male, age 29, carpenter (house), born Prince Edward Island, parents from Scotland

Agnes E., w,f,26, wife, keeping house, born Prince Edward Island, parents b Prince Edward Island

William W., w,m, age 11, son, at school, born MA, father and mother b Pr. Ed. Island

Mary J. w,f,9, daughter, at school, b MA, parents Pr. Ed. Island. Here she is born MA, but later she said born Canada and immigrated 1872 to USA.

Allen Elba, w,m,6, son, at school, b MA, parents Pr. Ed. Island

Arthur John, w,m, 8 mos, (born in Sept 1879) at home, MA, parents Pr. Ed. Island

Thank you for any info or help in finding birth, marriage, immigration records.

P.E.I. TOBACCO FACTORIES (photos & information requested)

I am now in what I hope are the final stages in the preparation of a book, A History of Tobacco Factories in Prince Edward Island. The book attempts to cover almost 200 years of tobacco "manufacturing" on the Island from 1811 to 2006 and I could really use some help at this point.

This request is for any information and hopefully some photos and artifacts from any of the more than twenty (20) known "tobacco factories" which operated in either Charlottetown, Summerside, Montague or elsewhere on the Island. It is better to try and seek new information now than to have it turn up later when it is too late Any and all responses will be answered immediately.

Do you have a photo of your grandfather or grandmother standing beside Alice, the Cigar Store Indian maiden at Riley's Tobacco in Charlottetown? Possibly you have a photo of just Alice, standing all by herself.

Do you have any early P.E.I. tobacco tins from MacPhails in Orwell or from T.B. & D.J. Riley's Tobacco? How about a wooden tobacco box, crate or barrel Hickey & Nicholson? How about a small wooden tobacco caddy or box from Master Marine Tobacco, Hic Nic, Rival Tobacco, MacLeod & MacInnis Tobacco, Riley's Tobacco, P.E.I. Twist or Kitchener Brand Charlottetown? Do you have and PEI tobacco signs? I am even looking for packages, banners and other items from Choice Tobacco in Montague.

Do you have anything from Hickey & Stewart Tobacco or from Geo. Morrison & Co.? How about Flynn Bros. or Trainor Bros. of Charlottetown or how about Benjamin Crabbe, Ben Mahar or Patrick Reilly of Summerside or from someone else? Do you have any receipts, billheads, letterhead, envelopes, price lists, tin tobacco tags, paper tobacco packages (H&N), calendars, pens, razors, wallets or tobacco pouches from any of the Island tobacco factories which can be photographed or photocopied?

I wish to photograph (or I will buy) any needed items and I will gladly cover the costs of copying any P.E.I. tobacco factory photos of either the factory itself or photos of the workers standing in front of a tobacco factory.

MCKINNON/GILLIS
I'm attempting to clear up a little confusion. Records sent to me by three sources indicate that the parents of John McKinnon, who married Margaret Brown daughter of Hugh Brown & Mary MacKinnon, were Roderick McKinnon & Catherine Gillis. However, Dorothy Farish the secretary at St. Patrick's in Grand River, believes that John's parents were Murdock McKinnon & Catherine Gillis. Does anyone have marriage dates for the two McKinnon/Gillis couples and list's of their children? Thank you!

Meacham's 1880 Atlas
Hello, I have a copy of Meacham's Atlas of 1880 and I've amused myself with trying to find my ancestors. I have found my great grandfather Thomas Doucet in Rustico and am sure of this because I compared the Atlas with the 1881 census which shows his neighbors and the similarity is a good indication that I found where he lived, in Rustico, in 1880.
In trying to find my ancestors in Tignish I have found a problem. In the 1881 census the neighbors for my great grandfather and great great grandfather show me that it is probable that they are living in the same vicinity that my great great grandfather is shown to be living in on th 1861 Lake Map, but in Meacham's 1881 Atlas my great grandfather and his father are not listed at all.
I hope I have made sense and I wonder if someone can tell me how accurate Meacham's Atlas is.
Thanks,
Brian Doucette

RAMBLER ROLE CALL- 1805
Hoe many Islanders can trace their ancestors to the passenger list of the Rambler which left Tobermory for PEI in 1805. List includes family names-
MacLean, Cameron, Livingston, Henderson, Murray, McDonald, Campbell, McLauchlin,
McArthur, McEachern, McMillan, McPhee, McNeil, & MacInnis. Did these 14 families originate from one community in Argyll, or come from various areas of Mull & Morvern? Any success in tracing? The Rambler went down off Newfoundland the following year with the loss of 129 passengers & crew. Only 3 survived. How fortunate for us that our ancestors left a year earlier.

Sorry to replay to you this way, but I have just had several replies to you rejected by Comcast. They are rejecting all traffic from ISN claiming it is spam. You might want to have a serious chat with them about this situation - errant email blocking is becoming an epidemic on the net, and the only way to stop it is to have subscribers complain about it.

MCLEOD
I am trying to find information on my great, great grandfather - Murdoch McLeod. He was born in Scotland around 1816 and emigrated to PEI sometime before 1864 when he married Anna Jay in Georgetown, King's County, PEI.

Per the 1881 Canadian census, he had 6 children all born on PEI between 1865 and 1878. Their names were Georgina, Norman Melvin, Mathew, William, Jane E, and Catherine E.

The 2nd child, Norman Melvin, was my great grandfather who was born in 1866 in Mt Stewart, Queens County, PEI. His baptismal certificate says he was christened in 1867 and the church is listed as "St Georges Anglican, St Peters Cathedral" in Georgetown. By 1891, he had emigrated to the USA where he married Letta Leona Lombard from Maine. I don't know whether Murdoch emigrated to the US with him or died on PEI.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I see a lot of "pay" sites with information on people born in Scotland, but since I don't know where Murdoch was born and I know nothing about his parents, I don't think I have enough information to determine which Murdoch McLeod might be him.

GILLIS, RODERICK Lot 13 & ANGUS Lot 18
Response to DAWNA GILLIS, Borden Carleton, PEI, 5 Apr 2005 correspondence:
Your family history goes back to two 1798 PEI Gillis men: ANGUS GILLIS of Lot 18, and RODERICK GILLIS of Lot 13
From RODERICK GILLIS , Lot 13: to FINLAY, JOHN, JAMES, CLARA E, DONALD and DAWNA.
From ANGUS GILLIS Lot 18: to DONALD, JOHN, ARCHIBALD FINLAY MAC LELLAN GILLIS (21 Nov 1836- 1921), URBAN RONALD, DONALD, and DAWNA.
This connection occurred when URBAN RONALD GILLIS married CLARA E GILLIS.
You are not, as yet, connected to the ARCHIBALD GILLIS son of JOHN GILLIS, SR, Lot 14: Colin Gillis being a descendant of ARCHIBALD. I am a descendant of JOHN GILLIS, SR through his son, WILLIAM GILLIS married to MARY ANN WALSH.


Hope this will assist you in your genealogy. Peg Gillis Feirtag, gillispeg (AT) comcast.net

WILLIAM F. MACDONALD/SUMMERSIDE
I am searching for the parents, siblings, and family origins of William F. MacDonald. He was born in Summerside, P.E.I. on Jan. 11, 1852. He was in Blissfield, N.B., Canada to marry Emeline Dow Bamford on Nov. 30, 1874. In the 1890's, they and their children moved to Houlton, Maine, U.S.A. where they divorced. William died Jan. 1, 1895 at age 43 years in Houlton and he is buried in that area in the Foxcroft Road Cemetery. He wasn't in the 1851 census, but he would have been 9 yrs. old in 1861 and 19 yrs. of age in 1871. Perhaps his middle initial of "F." might stand out in census or other records.

MULLALLY & LEONARD
Hello,

I have been searching for my Great-grandfather, Francis "Frank" Mullally for several years. He was born in March 1849 in Ireland. His parents were Charles MULLALLY & Margaret LEONARD, both of Ireland. Francis turns up in WV in our 1900 Census, which states he immigrated in 1775. Neither me nor anyone helping me has been able to locate Francis until 1893. I have been reading over The History of the Mullally Clann Book this weekend, and now I am wondering if perhaps Francis immigrated south instead of west to America? I wonder if my Charles Mullally was the Charles in The 1898 Rising, or perhaps he was the son of Charles of The 1898 Rising? Does anyone know of a book pertaining specifically to The Rising? Thank you for any help that might be forthcoming.

Sincerely,

From the Chronicle Herald, Feb. 11, 2006:

GORMAN, Christine MacPherson - Amherst, in her 75th year passed away suddenly in the VG Site, QEII, on February 9, 2006. Born in Toronto, she was a daughter of Christine and Hugh Ross Rutherford. She was predeceased by her husband, Charles Barrett Gorman, and his family. Sadly missed by Christine and Dannie MacKinnon, Brooklyn, P.E.I.; Tom and Elaine Gorman, Fall River, and Anne and Alex Lorimer, Mississauga, Ont. She is remembered as Grandma Ahoj by Alexander and Christine Sarah MacKinnon, James and Peter Gorman, Philip and Matthew Lorimer. She is survived by her brother, John Rutherford, Ottawa, and sister, Jane Steed, Calgary, and their families. The family will receive visitors in Furlong's Funeral Home Ltd. on Sunday 1-3:30 p.m. followed by a private memorial service. Burial will take place in St. Mary's parish cemetery, Indian River, P.E.I., later in the spring. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations made to National Ovarian Cancer Association, 101-145 Front St. East, Toronto, ON M5A 1E3 or Canadian Engineering Memorial Foundation, P.O. Box 370, Renfrew, ON K7V 4A6, would be appreciated.

For those of you who didn't know Christine, she was a daily contributor to the Island Register of ships notes, newspaper transcriptions, and many other items. I revieved a call from her son Tom to tell me she had passed away this morning. Of all the users we have lost over the years, I don't think the loss of any has been felt as badly as Christine's. To Christine's son and daughter, I wish to express our sincerest condolences for the loss of a wonderful mother. Rest in peace, Christine.

WILLIAM GOODWIN & DESCENDANTS
I'm researching my ancestor William Adolphus Barmby Goodwin (prob just Wm Goodwin) 'WABG', and his son William Adolphus Howard Goodwin 'WAHG', together perhaps with any other family he may have had in PEI.

Another researcher Mabel Hykaway, has told be that 'WABG' was 'late of Crapaud, Lot 29 Queen's County PEI' and a Farmer, who died at Tyron, Lot 28, Prince's County on 29th April 1838. This information comes from the settlement papers of the will of his father Robert Goodwin.

He was born in Hudson's Bay 6th August 1788, and christened in Yoxford, England 15th Jan 1797. His son William was born in Yoxford 18th Feb 1825. Their Wife/Mother died two years later in Yoxford.

WABG married 'Hannah Smith' in Yoxford on 8th November 1830. Perhaps she travelled with WABG and son WAHG to PEI, perhaps not. No later record exist of either in Yoxford

We think Son WAHG moved to Boxford, Essex County, Massachusetts (also from the will papers) before 1863 and was a farm labourer there, married to Ellen from Ireland, and having a son George. (We fing a Wm Goodwin DOB 1830 or 1829 in the Censuses there in 1870, 1880, 1900). We now think he may have died in 1903. I'm indebted to Adeline Maguire for this information.

I'm interested in finding out any information about him including verification of any of above statements, and whether he took another wife (which would have been his fourth!) had other offspring, or any information about his travel to PEI from England presumably between 1830 and 1838, and the movement of his son to Massachusetts.

Best wishes and keep up the good work on a great site

MISSING LINKS SANDRA DEVLIN PASSES AWAY:
The following is a difficult item to place as Sandra wasn't an Island Native, and passed away in her native province, New Brunswick, but was very well known on PEI, and amongst those doing Maritime Genealogical research. As such, she wouldn't fit in the Stray or normal PEI Obituaries columns, but her death absolutely must be mentioned.

Missing Links Author Passes Away:

Sandra Devlin passed away peacefully on February 1, 2006 at the Moncton Hospital following a valiant struggle with cancer. Her wit, insight, strong will and bottomless heart will be missed by the many people whose lives she touched.

Born in Saint John, NB, Nov. 28, 1946, Sandra was the daughter of Ellen Eileen (Mills) Hosford and the late Harold Edwin Hosford (2004). Although she lived in various communities in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Ontario over the years, she grew up in Riverview and always called the Moncton area home.

Besides her mother, Sandra is survived by her daughter, Shonda Joy Secord (her husband, Pierre Rondeau), of Rosemere, Que., and her son, Matthew Kenneth Secord (his wife, Annette), of Dartmouth.

She is also survived by her loving and dedicated caregiver, Michael Harpell; three grandchildren, Ariel Rebecca Rondeau, William Benjamin Rondeau and Lauren Paige Susan Secord; her brother, Michael Hosford (his partner, Betty Holt); nieces, Kelley and Jill Hosford; and her ex-husband, Donald Secord, Halifax.

Besides her father, Sandra was predeceased by her second husband, Rodney V. Devlin, in 2003.

Sandra was a graduate of Moncton High School and alumnae of St. Francis Xavier University. She received her teaching licence from Holland College in 1992. She belonged to St. Paul’s United Church, Riverview, where her parents were pioneer members.

She was a member of Elmwood Cemetery Board of Directors, Society of Family History Writers and Editors, Canadian Association of Journalists, Moncton Press Club, Canada’s National History Society, Club 31 RAF Veterans Club, Air Force Veterans Club, New Brunswick Genealogical Society - Southeastern Branch and New England Historic and Genealogical Society.

After over 25 years in print journalism with such papers as the Frederiction Daily Gleaner, Guelph Daily Mercury (Ont.), New Glasgow Evening News (NS), Truro Daily News (NS) and Northern Daily News (Kirkland Lake, Ont.), Sandra launched a successful freelance career in 1996, the foundation of which was her self-syndicated genealogy newspaper column, Missing Links. Missing Links was published over the years in 17 newspapers in Atlantic Canada.

For nearly 11 years, Sandra also wrote a weekly opinion column, In Other Words, in The Guardian, Charlottetown. She was a contibutor to many other publications and was honoured with multiple awards.

In the early 1990s, she was a journalism instructor at Holland College, Charlottetown.

From 2000 to 2003, she worked in community relations for Southeast Regional Health Care Authority.

At the time of her death, Sandra was working on a true crime novel. Resting at the Riverview Funeral Home, 214 Pine Glen Rd. on Sunday February 5, 2006 from 2:00 - 4:00pm & 7:00 - 9:00pm.

The funeral service and time of sharing memories of Sandra will be held at the Riverview Funeral Home on Monday February 6, 2006 at 2:00pm with Rev. Shawn Redden officiating.

Interment will be in Elmwood Cemetery in the spring.

In Sandra's memory, donations made to The Friends of The Moncton Hospital "Jim Clements Education Fund", or The Dr. G.L. Dumont Hospital Oncology Unit would be appreciated by her family.

Funeral arrangments have been entrusted to The Riverview Funeral Home, 214 Pine Glen Rd. (506)857-9544.

ADAMS/MCGINNIS
My grandfather's sister Elizabeth Adams had a daughter Laura, born March l5,1885, according to the 1901 census which we did not know about until recently. Elizabeth married David McGinnis in 1888. Where would I search on P.E.I. for Laura's birth certificate? They lived in the New London area. They moved to the Miramichi area, then to Maine. I believe Laura may have married and stayed on the Miramichi.

MacKenzie
I am in the middle of two searches:

Trying desperately to locate my birth sister... she was born Kimberly A. Mackenzie in June of 1979, in Summerside PEI. We believe the adoption was through Prince County, but was finalized in Ontario. Any and all info would be appreciated, as Kim has a VERY LARGE extended family and a heart sick birth mother who would love to bring their lost angel home to her forever family that loves her dearly and always will.


Also looking for any information on my maternal grandfather John Mackenzie. He died in the early 70's, wife's name was Hannah, lived on PEI and also in Ontario at one point. They had a large family, but no one seems to have much information on him, and we can't seem to track him. Any information would be appreciated as we currently have next to nothing.

FINLAYSON
My ancestor, William Finlayson(1787?-1865?) came from Scotland and settled in Point Prim about the time of construction of the Belfast Church,circa 1823.He and his wife, Margaret Taylor(1793-1861)brought three children;John,Donald,and Duncan(1898) with them : they subsequently had six more children on PEI; Ninian(1823),Archibald(1826), Janet or Jessie(1828),Kenneth(1832),Isabel(1835),and Elizabeth(1837?).
I have info on the decendents of Duncan, Ninian, Archibald, Jessie, and Kenneth; but not on the others.There was an obituary for Margaret who died in 1861, but I find no info on William. Their daughter, Janet, married a Murdoch Gillis (1820): Some of the Gillis descendents still live in Point Prim.

I believe that sll of the Finlayson's have either left the Island or died off.

I need help to find the birth and death dates for William and the burial place for both William and Margaret. I would like to find any info on the descendents of John,Donald,Elizabeth, and Isabel.

Is this paper available to view, as I am trying to confirm if Joseph Sharpe, Chief Engineer, was on the ship at the time.

The following children are on the census with her: Thomas, Archibald, Eliza, Maggie and Sarah (my husband's grandmother - Sarah's marriage record show Jane Bynon & William H Green as parents)

Jane, between 1881 and 1885, married a James Hurry/Hurrie (James also shows as a widower on the 1881 P.E.I. census).

I was able to connect this couple through my husband's great grandmother's (Jane)obituary. Lemuel and Sarah both are mentioned in the obituary as Jane's children.

GILLIS
Looking for updated information on my Gillis line.

John GILLIS born about 1755 in Barra, Scotland. Died June 1825 in Lot 14 - Grand River. Married Ann "Nancy" McNeil. John came to PEI in 1790 on Queen of Greenock supposedly with 2 brothers, Donald and Roderick. 1798 PEI Census has John Gillis married with 3 males under age 16 and one female between age 16 - 60. John purchased land in Grand River Lot 14 #7 from Ephraim White of England on 27 June 1805.

Children of John Gillis and Ann "Nancy" McNeil:
i. William GILLIS born about 1787. Died about 1848. Married Mary Ann Walsh. Purchased land in Grand River Lot 14 #9 in June 1811.
ii. Donald GILLIS born about 1788. Died 22 Aug 1853 in Cascapedia, Quebec. Possibly did not marry. Purchased land in Grand River Lot 14 #7 June 1805. Gave 75 acres to his brother Archibald GILLIS upon his marriage.
iii. Archibald GILLIS Sr. born about 1798 in Grand River. Married Ann "Nancy" MacNeil(Murdoch)at St. John's RC Church, Miscouche. Father John and brother Donald were listed as witnesses. Archibald and Ann had at least 3 children. One son - Archibald Jr.(my ggggrandfather) married Mary Ann Gillis and had at least 8 children that I have confirmed.
iv. Ann Gillis born about 1799. Married John Morrison 9 Jan 1825 at St. John's RC Church, Miscouche. Received 75 acres of land from her father John in his will dated March 11, 1825. Ann and John had at least 5 children.

I am trying to sort out confusion over these early families as it seems that their names have been mixed in with names from other families. Given the era and frequency of the same names on the Island this is understandable. Any one who can help with any additions or new information it would be greatly appreciated.

A happy New Year and best wishes in your seaches to all!

GILLIS
My greatgreatgreatgrandfather was Archibald Gillis Jr. born December 4, 1828 in Grand River married Mary Ann Gillis. I am trying to gather information on the parents of Archibald Gillis Jr. - Archibald Gillis Sr. born about 1800 in Grand River and wife Anne MacNeill born about 1803 in Scotland. They married July 19, 1819 at St. John's RC Church in Miscouche. Archibald Gillis's parents are listed as Jean(John) and Anne McNeal. Anne's parents are listed as Mardoches(Murdoch) and Anne McNeal.

Children of Archibald Sr. and Anne MacNeill are uncertain except my relative - Archibald Jr. Other children are possibly Catherine married John Fitzgerald of Cascumpec, Elizabeth married John Gavin, also Flora, Margaret, Jerome.

Any help on this line would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

BUSHEY / BOUCHET
Happy New Year
Looking for the the ancestors of Isaac BUSHEY/BOUCHET, born about 1848 PEI, and living with his wife Mary (O'KEEFE) born about 1852, PEI, and family at CONNAUGHT Lot # 45, in the 1881 census, by 1891 Isaac has died and Mary is living with her son Charles at the same place. The spelling BOUCHET appears in the 1880 J.H. MEACHAM & Co. atlas, otherwise it is BUSHEY, which is usually the English version of BOUCHER.
Must keep rooting,

MCLEOD
As I continue to try to ascertain the parentage of my Angus McLeod of Eldon, Lot 57 and at one time, prior to marriage, of Lot 58, I grasp at any small piece of information that may have a connection.

In searching the 1841 PEI Census for McLeods, I find a Penny McLeod, Widow - a Farmer - in Lot 58. She would be of the right age to be my Angus's mother and Penny is a name that appears in my family in a strange way.

Does anyone know her husband?? children?? location of her farm??

On quick survey of "The MacLeods of PEI", I did not find a Penny McLeod listed but I could have missed it.

Happy New Year to all Register readers!

Thanks for any help! Janice

MURPHY
Mary Murphy, born,January 1st,1826, married October 18,1845, Alexander Ceasar Lefurgey, born July 9,1821 at Summerside, P.E.I. Mary had brothers David and Montague, Ships Carpenters who relocated to Boston, Mass.

David,born 1821, married Catherine, born 1838 in Nova Scotia and had children
James A. born in New York , George F. born in Boston and Mabel E. also born in Boston . Davids father was born in Ireland and his mother on P.E.I.

Montague Murphy was born in 1825 and married Elizabeth, born 1823 on P.E.I. They had the following children, Artemus W.born 1853 in Boston. Franklin J. born 1855 in Boston. Elizabeth D.born 1866 in Boston and Montague F, born 1869
in Boston. Montague the father states that both parents were born on P.E.I.

The 1880 American Census shows two other residents in the Murphy Household, names - Willian Needham born in Mass, however, with Island Parents and Ellen B.
Aitkin born on P.E.I. with both parents from there as well.

The Lefurgeys had children name David,Montague,Barbara,William Thomas, Gulielma,Mary Ellen,Fenwick William,Catherine L.,Spurgeon,Lucy,Maynard and Mabel. Most of the given names were not usually associated with the Lefurgey families and are thought to have come from the Murphy side.

Further reference to Islanders in Boston 1870 on The Island Register

It would be greatly appreciated if other researchers of the MURPHY Surname can shed additional information and help me in breaking through my brick wall.

Thanking all for any conciderations, happy hunting in the new year ,
kindest regards David .
