Clemmie's Autographs
Hi
Recently looking through some old stuff I can across a book of Autographs belong to Clemmie MacDonald of Panmure Island.
She was born c1870 so she was a teenager when these were written - late 1880s.
Each has a poem attached which I will not type out until I have more time but I printed some names dates and places. Maybe it will interest some.
I best remember her as a distinguished lady in her 80s. I was assigned the task of playing cards with her. No one else wanted to play with her. Might have been the way she shuffled a pack in each hand alerted them to the danger!
Hope this might be of interest to some. Many more names to follow if anyone is interested I will post them later. All the best in 2008
Paul

Good Day:
I am searching for information on my great grandfather, ALEXANDER JAMES FRAZER. His US naturalization papers indicate that he was born in "Crapo" (sic)
Crapaud, Prince Edward Island and granted US citizenship on 24 October 1892. His wife was Mary A. Niles although I do not have any information on her. They must have moved from the island to Nova Scotia as my grandfather, Joseph Hugh Frazer was baptized at Saint Jerome's Church in West Caledonia, Queens County, Nova Scotia on 22 January 1882. My grandfather's sponsors were Peter Shea and Jane Lannan which may provide additional insight.

Hello all,

The Government of PEI has completed some clean up of the cemetery, removing old trees and shrubs. If you live near the area and would like to take a look please do so. Access to the cemetery is either via the shore or via the Right Of Way trail that starts at the end of the 'private road', which in fact you can travel on. I will not be able to visit the cemetery myself until next summer but I would love to hear your comments regarding the clean up work!

MATHESON ~ JENKINS ~ ROSS
Kenneth MATHESON was born c1840, actual place unknown. Married 1862 in Charlottetown to Rebecca Elizabeth JENKINS born 1844, daughter of John 'The Councillor' JENKINS and Charlotte Sophia MURRAY.

We know positively, Kenneth MATHESON was the son of Kenneth MATHESON and Ann ROSS. We know he had died by 1881 as Rebecca is in the Charlottetown census, with all the children still living at home. We also know they were originally from Lot 48 & 49 (in particular). Rebecca was born at Mt Albion, but as far as we know, their children were born in charlottetown.

On Mary Jane's MATHESON's 1892 marriage registry in Lower Sackville, Halifax Co. Nova Scotia, her father Kenneth MATHESON is described as "M Mariner". Mary Jane married William STONE born 1867 Lower Sackville (Old Windsor Rd/Cobequid Rd) Halifax County, NOVA SCOTIA ~ not in New Brunswick, which the Nicholas Henckell JENKINS lineage stated. Mary Jane & William are my great-grandparents.

We have no more information regarding Kenneth or his parents, but would like to be able to connect them to other MATHESONs and ROSS'. Last year after searching every day for a full week at the PEI Archives, I didn't find a thing, regarding our Kenneth. Very discouraging!

Does anyone have this Kenneth(s) MATHESON or Ann ROSS within their family lines?

LULAN ship Ancestors 1848
I am doing some historical research into emigration from the Uists in the Western Isles of Scotland to Nova Scotia in the early 1800s. I would be grateful for any information on these families who purportedly sailed from South Uist, many of them dying from smallpox on route or after arrival.
The names are not typically Uist in origin, which intrigues me, and some of them were- Lowther, Carmichael, Maxwell, Neilson, Grant, Ferguson, Black and Samson. I know the ship took a detour to Glasgow first so I assume these passengers were picked up there. I'll not elaborate on the purpose of the research but any info on these families would be much appreciated.

If I get any returns on these, I have another batch of names I will post later. Feel free to contact

CRASWELL
Just found this Obit and thought I would share it.



Craswell, William Lawrence

CRASWELL, WILLIAM LAWRENCE Our cherished dad, William Lawrence Craswell, left this earth June 2, 2004, to be with his beloved Rose, his wife of 61 years. Bill was born November 2, 1920, in Gresham, Oregon, to Rosa M. and Lawrence E. Craswell. He attended Gresham High School, where he met and began dating Rose Ceciliani. He starred on the basketball and baseball teams and continued to pitch semi-pro baseball for several years, while working at the family business, Portland Sand and Gravel. Bill enlisted in the U.S. Army and he and Rose were married on August 22, 1942. He served as a tank commander in the 14th Armored Division, fighting with Patton's troops in North Africa, France, and Germany. He was awarded the Bronze Star for Bravery. Upon returning from the war, Bill resumed driving for Portland Sand and Gravel, until his retirement. Bill's life revolved around his family. He was deeply devoted to his wife, his mother, and his two sons and their families, and he will be dearly missed. We take great comfort in knowing that he and Mom are now back together. Bill is survived by his sons, William B. and Robert A. Craswell, their wives, and his five grandchildren. He was looking forward to the birth of his first great-grandchild. A funeral service and interment will be held 2:00 p.m., Monday, June 7, 2004, at Lincoln Memorial Park & Funeral Home, 11801 S.E. Mt. Scott Blvd., Portland, 503-771-1117. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hopewell House or Mt. Hood Hospice.

McCallum
I am the grandaughter of Mary Emily McCallum (Ellen Murphy & Neil McCallum) and Mary's husband/my grandfather Kenneth McCallum. Her nick name was Emma and she died in May 1958. I have a lot of information but need more on Neil McCallums second wife. I believe they were married in dec of 1883. My grandmother always spoke of her half sisters or step sisters Bessie and Lena who moved to Mass. Mary lived in Minneapolis MN and was the mother of Kenneth McCallum and Katherine Shirley McCallum (my mother) and married to my father Andrew Poshek. They visited PEI many times, sometimes with Percy and Gladys Johnstone to see the Diamond family and others. I would love to visit with anyone who might know of them. I believe the second wife was Elizabeth Peardon who was maybe married to John Peardon and widowed. Thank you. Katherine Emily Poshek, Tessman, Bates. 208-392-9784./

Her name is Esther Cormier,born May 24, 1884 in Prince Edward Island. She moved to Nova Scotia around 1916 (according to her death certificate) and died in 1938 in Nova Scotia. Her parents were John Cormier and it looks like her mother's name was St. Celia (but the death certificate is hand written and it's difficult to read). If anyone has any information regarding Esther Cormier (or her parents), I would be grateful to hear about it. I was unable to find any record of her marriage to my grandfather (Walter De Baie) or any record of her parents death.

GRAHAM
Isabella GRAHAM had a son named Malcolm Donald. Malcolm Donald was born on April 28, 1896 in the Murray River area of PEI. He was given to the Malcolm BLUE family by his mother as an infant, and lived with the BLUE family (identified in the 1901 census with Malcolm BLUE and the 1911 census with Duncan BLUE). Malcolm Donald immigrated to the USA on July 28, 1922, and used the last name BLUE. In the immigration paper, he listed Uncle Duncan Blue as his nearest relative, and John Gillis as the person whose residence where he lived at 26 Elmwood St in Little Sands, PEI.

Isabella, Malcolm Donald's mother, was a daughter of John B. Graham and Phoebe Hicken. She married to Malcolm Gillis of Montague, PEI after Malcolm Donald was born. Malcolm Donald also had a brother named Leith, who was born August 28, 1885, and a half sister, named Phoebe.

I know there are still many GRAHAM descendants on PEI, and I am hoping someone can shed some light as to who was the father of Malcolm Donald.

GREEN
The baptismal Records of PEI until 1888 list 8 children for Thomas GREEN and Caroline (surname not given, but this would be Caroline Francis DAVIS according to our family "story") born between 16 Oct 1842 (Amelia Jane GREEN) and 3 April 1860 (Charles Sutcliffe GREEN). Then Thomas GREEN is listed with wife Anne Eliza (no surname given and this 2nd marriage was unknown--we seek her maiden name, birth and death dates) for these 4 children (all of whom were listed on the recently discovered family bible page):
Thomas P. GREEN born 12 July 1863
Matilda Blanche GREEN born 9 October 1864
Alfred George Hodgson GREEN born 9 October 1865
Alice Abigail GREEN 15 August 1868
plus 2 more NOT on the family bible page, but possibly born to the same couple:
Annie Edith GREEN born 2 Nov 1870 to Thomas GREEN and Anne Eliza
Edward Albert Osbourne GREEN born 7 March 1878 to Thomas GREEN and Annie Eliza.
Is there any way to determine/confirm the maiden names of Caroline and Anne Eliza--are there marriage indexes someone could help search? or Cemetery records? It would seem likely that Caroline would be married and buried by a Trinity Methodist minister as all her children were baptized there and that Anne Eliza would have wed (and been buried?) by St. Peter's Anglican (this minister would have been George Wright Hodgson) as this is where her children were baptized.
Thanks much for all help received!

I believe that Thomas Williams was involved with building/owning ships in this period.
I believe also that Mary Good also used the name of Harriet (certainly in New Zealand)
Mary/Harriet was born in PEI around 1820.
Wondering if anyone else is looking at the Good family.
Any info welcome

CORBETT - LOT 21
Hi. I am interested in contacting any descendants of the CORBETTS who settled in South Granville, Lot 21. They all came from the parish of Eddrachillis in Sutherlandshire, Scotland and my wife is a New Zealand-born descendant of a sister who remained in Scotland. Perhaps the McKenzies, Gunns and McLeods also living in Granville in 1871 were from this remote part of the Scottish Highlands as well? The Island Register is a great site!

FITZPATRICK
First off, great site you have put together here!

I am hoping someone reading your site may be researching the same family and be able to help me add on to my family as I have hit a brick wall.

I am looking for any siblings and parents for a John Fitzpatrick born possibly between 1824 and 1827 on Prince Edward Island. Family information initially placed his birth in Ireland, but according to the Census of 1881 (Westmoreland County, NB)he was born in PEI. According to information I received from a great-granddaughter of John, he married a Mary Ann Butler (b. 4 Aug 1833 NB) on Prince Edward Island sometime around 1850 or 1851 as the first child we can find reference to, Thomas, was born 19 Dec 1852 in New Brunswick. John and Mary had 11, possibly 12 children, in total. They were all born or raised in Westmoreland County, New Brunswick. The information is very limited on what we know pertaining to John, Mary Ann and family, because the family story goes that John, a devout Catholic, disowned his second son Michael (my great-great grandfather) when John learned Michael was a Methodist.

If anyone has any information about this family, or could push me in the right direction to go to find information about John and his family, it would be greatly appreciated. I am more then happy to share what information I do have on John Fitzpatrick's and Mary Ann Butler's descendants.

I can be emailed at arewerelated2007 (AT) yahoo.com

CAMPBELL/LIDSTONE/MCPHERSON
I am seeking information on the family of the Rev. William James Campbell, b. in Carleton 9-28-1876 or 1877, died in Bar Harbor, ME on March 2, 1949. I have a substantial amount of information on Rev. Campbell and his career, but not on his family. His parents were Donald E. Campbell and Mary Ann McPherson Campbell. The family lived in Summerside and he had a sister who married Winsloe Johnston Lidstone (1876-1946), a merchant and, in the early 1940's, mayor of Summerside. I believe Donald Campbell was a farmer and died before 1903. I would appreciate any information on William Campbell's parents, his sister, her husband, or other relatives. Some letters between W.J.Lidstone and William J. Campbell are available in the Vanderbilt University archives, where Dr. Campbell was a professor in the Divinity School from 1929 until 1947 or 1948. From those letters I gather that the Lidstones had a son, Donald, and a daughter, Evelyn.

I moved to Halifax and later found out I was adopted in l945. Lived there for a few years but later moved back to PEI. In 1949 I moved to Brookfield, Colchester Co., N. S. where I grew up. I married James Cox, Riversdale, N. S. in l966 and we lived in Truro. We had 2 children, Tami in 1967 and Barry in 1969. We now have 5 grandchildren.
I have no knowledge of who my biological father was and both parents are now deceased. Social Services on PEI could only tell me I was adopted in l945......the rest is blank.

The family lived on lot 43 and I have checked the census records, however, in 1881 (the last census Margaret appears on...John H.E. was remarried by 1891 so I am assuming that Margaret died somewhere within those 10 years) there were 30 people living on the lot...many of them children and I'm not yet sure which children belong to whom.

MacKenzie
Looking for any and all information on my maternal Grandfather John Henry MacKenzie DOB: April 17, 1906 DOD: Sept. 7, 1974. Married Hannah Jane Jackman sometime after 1935. What I have been able to gather from family memories so far is that John was the son of Warren MacKenzie (who I believe was born in 1875 in Bay Fortune lot 43). I can't seem to locate Warren on the 1901 census,nor do I have any info after that save that he was married twice, once to my Great-Grandmother and then again after her death. I have been unable to uncover the names or dates of either wife, childrens names were: wife 1- Roy, Frank, John Henry,Laura; wife 2-George, Collin(Willie), Alton, (male child whose name no one can recall/find), Bertha. So I would really appreciate any info on Warren as well as I intend to track back from him. I have been told that the daughter of that unknown male from Warren's second family was doing some research as well, and I would love to talk to her and compare notes. I believe her name may be Laura Brown(e).

WOOLNER / MCNEILL
My husband's 93 year old grandmother (Dora MacCoubrey) says she is a distant relative of L.M. Montgomery. I am trying to prove this. It is documented in Lucy Maud's dairies that she spend time in the McCoubrey Farmhouse in Cavendish. So far I have found two common names in the family trees. Dora's grandmother Lucy Ann Woolner (b Apr 2 1858 - d Jan 29 1948) was married to James L Smith. I know this is not the same Lucy Ann Woolner that was Lucy Maud's grandmother, however I have a strong feeling the two are related somehow. I have looked through the lineages on the website without any luck.
The other common last name is McNeill. Mary McNeill (b Apr 29 1860 - D unknown) married William Meville Laird.

McLEAN, MACLEAN
I'm trying to track down the PEI branch of my family going on very little information. My greatgrandmother Emily was born on Prince Edward Island in about 1860 and immigrated to the USA about 1879. The only US records of her that I've found just give her married name of Cameron. However in the 1900 U.S. Census the Cameron household in Boston MA included an aunt, Carrie McLean (born about 1841, PEI; immigrated to US abt 1863). From the ancestry given in the census (where each person was born and their mother's and father's birthplace) I believe that this is probably Emily's aunt and so McLean might be Emily's maiden name.

If these guesses are correct, then I'm looking for a couple (the parents of Carrie and Emily's father) that came to PEI from Scotland with some children already born (Emily's father was born in Scotland) and with more children (including Carrie) born in PEI.

I know that this is a needle-in-a-haystack kind of search but if this information suggests some answers to anyone or if anyone has any suggestions for me in how to proceed I would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks!

MAC LEOD / MC LEOD
I am looking for any information on the family of Mary MacLeod. She was my great grandmother.
I don't know alot about her but I will post what I do know:
She was originally from P.E.I. and from an Irish Catholic family. It is said that both her family, and the family of my great grandfather were both against their marriage so they moved to New Brunswick and married there. I found the record for their marriage in 1914. His name was Stephen Russell. Mary died in childbirth with her third child.
I am trying to find someone who might know this story or who might have a connection in their family.
Someone helped me along not too long ago but linking me with a Catholic family with a Mary MacLeod listed as a daughter, born 1895, which would make her the right age and she had a younger brother named Ernest, which is my frandfather (Mary's son) name. They were in Lot 59 Kings County.

For the record Stephen Russell was originally from NFLD. I have nothing on him either so if that name rings a bell with anyone it would be helpful ;o)

O'LEARY
Does anyone out there live in O'Leary? I have a picture of a big red and grey barn I'm trying to find out the address for. I think it is on O'Leary Rd somewhere between O'Leary, Knutsford or Springfield West. Email me if you think you can help and want to check it out. It's pretty distinctive looking. The barn is set back pretty far from the road and behind the house.It has a long then circlar driveway with a little grass area and flag pole in front of the barn. I was just up there and forgot to pack the photo album with the picture and couldn't remember what it looked like from memory. I am seriously kicking myself in the butt. Another hint might be that it was near Jack Yeo's place in 1975 when the picture was taken.

I also have an old postcard with the O'Leary School on it and I'm wondering where that was. It's not the same school that is near the Knutsford Cemetery and I've ruled out the house in between that school and the cemetery as the one with the barn that I'm looking for. Although the house with the red barn looks almost exactly like that one.
Thanks!

WHITE / BROOKS
Henry James BROOKS, (1829-1907) son of John and Frances BROOKS in Murray Harbour left P.E.I. with his wife, Mary Ann Parker WHITE, and appear in the 1901 census living in Saanich, Vancouver Island. Both died there and are buried in Shady Creek United Church Cemetery in Saanich. They reportedly left P.E.I. with Mary Ann 's brother, Tom, and sister, Elizabeth WHITE.

In June of this year I visited the cemetery at Shady Creek United Church to see the BROOKS headstone and by accident, discovered the names, Tom WHITE, Elizabeth WHITE, and Etta Mary WHITE, inscribed along the edge of stone work close beside the main tombstone of the Brooks family. There were no dates. I contacted the local family history society and they informed me that there was a WHITE family buried there: Tom and Elizabeth and Etta McKAY. They confirmed that there were no dates in the records. I am not sure if Etta McKay would be the same person as Etta Mary White. Nevertheless, someone researching the White family from Murray Harbour may find this information of some use. I have a photograph of the cemetery and approximate area; unfortunately I don 't have one of the White names as my camera chose to run out of battery.

Could this be the same Brig Prospect that a Captain McDonald came to San Francisco from Liverpool, England on? Shis arrived 13 Aug 1850. Passage was 232 days from Liverpool, England to San Francisco.

MURPHY
Trying to locate information on parents of Mary Murphy. According ot her marriage record in Lynn, Massachusetts, her parents were Patrick and Bridget--no maiden name listed. She married Daniel J. Murphey who was the widower of Ellen Fey. He gave his parents as Thomas and Catherine. Marriage date was 20 Nov 1877. He was age 27-born in Ireland abt 1850 and she was age 25 born in PEI abt 1852. We know that they had a son Thomas Francis in Dec 1882 and are quite sure they had 2 girls before that Catherine abt 1878 and Mary E. in 1880. Any and all leads would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

Where can one find a dummy?
I know, the title doesn't look good - what I am looking for is a full mannequin for a linesman display :-)This is a little bit off topic, but it does have to do with preserving historical artifacts, so....

Does anyone have any ideas where one might find a used dummy? I have tons of linesman's tools and equipment in the museum. As a display, it does nothing
for me having them displayed on a shelf - far better to display them on a mannequin dressed up as a telephone linesman (either male or female in these days of equal opportunity)

It would have to be a full body mannequin so it can wear such items as the climbing spikes, belt, etc.

Of course, cost will be a big consideration, as I fund the museum myself, so I am wondering if any of you might have any suggestions of the best places to look for one? Now, if only I could find a closing out sale for a clothing store in the local paper, but haven't seen one lately.

Finally, what would be the best way to ship a dummy? I can just imagine if a dummy going to my address came into my workplace (I work at Canada Post) the ribbing about mail order brides I would get :-)

Any suggestions?

SHEAN / FISHER / PHELAN
Was John SHEAN who was married to Elizabeth (Betsy) FISHER the same John SHEAN who married Catherine PHELAN on 9 Jan 1847? Does anyone know when Elizabeth (FISHER) SHEAN died?

In the 1881 census John is 74 years and Catherine is 54. Is it possible that John was a widower marrying a younger woman. John and Elizabeth's last child's baptism was 1843 and the first baptism for John and Catherine's was 1848.

In the PEI Baptismal Index there are three entries for SHEAN / FISHER children
1839 Jane
1841 Patrinellious
1843 Caroline

There are 4 entries for SHEAN(SHEEHAN) /PHELAN (WHELAN) children

1848 Honora
1849 Catherine
1850 Margaret
1852 Agnes, married 30 Apr 1877, Thomas McCABE. They had two children in Charlottetown, Harriet and William and three sons, John, Francis and Frederick Seamore in Boston, MA

MacLaren, one of their several children was George Vessey, married Alice Dewar.
Their only son was Robert Vessey, married Muriel Reynolds, they had two sons and one daughter. I am one of those sons, George Athol Vessey.
The known Vesseys of Brudenell are still researching for more information on Joseph Vessey (Viger) of Lot 49 or Vernon River.
They were of Catholic religeon and it is believed that George Vessey when he mArried Alice Dewar changed to Prodestant religion.

CLARKES of Lot 23
On a trip to PEI last summer, I was not able to find the graves for several of my ancestors. Because they were on only two generations, one assumes they must be at one site, but they are not at the main New Glasgow cemetery. I viewed all the cemeteries in the area I could find but feel I must have missed one or two. Perhaps someone knows the whereabouts of the following graves:
William Clarke, 1783-? (immigrated ca. 1830 with wife and children)
Martha Newby Clarke, 1784-? (WC's first wife)
Anne Stanford Ling Clarke, 1794-? (possible WC 2nd wife)
William Clarke II, 1814-? (one of WC's & MNC's sons)
Ann Ling Clarke, 1826-1875 (WC II's wife/daughter of Jacob & Anne Ling)
Mary Ann Clarke Barrett, 1816-63+ years (wife of William - Wm is at NG cem)

They were all born England and died at New Glagow. Maps show land belonging to them on the new Glasgow Road. Second generation brother, John, also had a farm in NG but moved to Lot 16. I plan another trip to island this summer and would really like to find there graves. Anyone with any information on these family members, please contact me - eternal gratitude.

MCLEOD
Hi,

I'm searching for information on Daniel McLeod who married Annie Ada Heckbert in Woburn Massachusetts on 14 May 1881. Annie Ada was born in the Summerside area in 1864 so she was just 16 years old when she married Daniel. She gave birth to a daughter Georgianna Gertrude McLeod six months later on 14 November 1881 in Woburn. Annie Ada was listed with her parents (John and Nancy Heckbert) in the 1881 PEI census, so perhaps she and Daniel eloped to Woburn (where several of Annie Ada's older siblings lived).

Daniel's daughter, Gertrude McLeod, was listed in the 1891 PEI census. She was living with her uncle, Charles Heckbert (listed as his adopted daughter). She was still living with Charles in 1901, but was listed as his niece. She retained the McLeod surname.

Unfortunately, I have no information on Daniel McLeod, except that he was born in PEI (as recorded in the census information for daughter Gertrude McLeod). He might have been from the Summerside area and possibly was born around the same time as Annie Ada (about 1864). I do not know who his parents were, so I know finding information about him is going to be a difficult task. I could not find Daniel and Annie Ada in the 1900 USA or 1901 Canada census. Since their daughter was living in PEI with an uncle, perhaps their marriage didn't last.

I would be interested in finding out more about Gertrude McLeod too. I wonder if she remained on the Island? I did not find her name in the 1911 census so perhaps she was married by that time.

Any information about either DANIEL MCLEOD or his daughter GEORGIANNA GERTRUDE MCLEOD would be greatly appreciated.

Can anyone place the following:

They appear in the 1861 Census of Bass River, Weldford Parish, New Brunswick, with Abel Easter age 35 and his wife Flora age 39. Three additional children, were born in NB, Mary Jane Easter cal 1850, Lucy Ann Easter cal 1852 and Margaret Hanabery Easter cal 1856.

This census indicates a marriage in the previous year [1860]. Thus the above children may be Abel's biological children from a prior marriage or he may have adopted chldren born of Flora and her previous husband.

An Abel Easter married Mary Smith and they had 5 children born between 1868 -1878 in New Brunswick. One was Annie Easter who married John Winn [beleived to be our ancestor] Is Abel of the PEI Easter Family?

CHAPPELL
Looking for anyone with information on CHAPPEL/CHAPPELL's that migrated from England to PEI, Canada in the early 1800's. I have bits and pieces that I'm trying to place together and am hoping that someone out there is researching a similiar line. I'm particularly looking for information on the ancestors and descendants of William CHAPPELL b. abt 1833 in PEI, d. 1900 in PEI - I believe that his parents were John CHAPPELL (b. 1800 d. 1870) & Elizabeth UNKNOWN (b. 1802 d. 1870) but have not been able to verify or deny.

Information on William CHAPPELL (b. 1833) I believe to be true:

William CHAPPELL married Jane CHAMPION approx. 1859/60 in PEI. Jane was b. abt 1839 in PEI, d. 1898, her parents were William CHAMPION & Annie SUDSBURY. Number and names of William and Jane's children not verified except for one, they had a son William C. Chappell b. 1861 in PEI, d. 1924 in PEI). I believe that they had other children but do not have concrete proof.

William C. CHAPPELL married Margaret WALL approx. 1880 in PEI. Margaret was b. 1861 in PEI, d. 1938 in PEI, her parents were Frederick WALL & Susanna ADAMS. William & Margaret's children (all born in PEI):
Fred b. 1885
James b. 1888
John Henry(aka Harry) b. 1890 d. 1976; m. Hazel CONNELL-MCLURE abt 1915; Hazel b. 1899 in PEI d. 1969
Reuben b. 1893 d. 1961; m. Ruby GAMESTER
Silas b. 1895 d. 1975
Earl b. 1899
Janie b. 1901 d. 1990; m. George WARD; George b. 1890 d. 1959

Any information that can be forwarded would be wonderful.

Thanks,

NICHOLSON
I am trying to find where on the Island Margaret Nicholson came from. She married Angus Buchanan from the Island in Mansfield, Massachusetts, in 1882, saying that her parents were "John and Christina Nicholson." The Buchanans lived in Mansfield and had several children. Angus died in 1902, and Margaret died in 1917, her parents' names not given on the record. I need to find out where they lived in P.E.I. and what her mother's maiden name was. Apparently there is no baptismal record for Margaret, who was born about 1859. Thank you.

MACDONALD/MCDONALD
Searching for info on, and descendents of 3 sisters - Catherine, Jane and Margaret MacDonald who emigrated to PEI about 1791. These were the daughters of Iain Og MacDonald of Gaothdail (or Guidale), Arisaig, Scotland. Catherine married Donald "Tracadie" MacDonald, Jane married Donald "Allisary" MacDonald, and Margaret married Angus MacDonald (probably Grandfather of James "North Pole" MacDonald).

Iain Og (AKA John Og) MacDonald, their father, was a grandson of Alexander MacDonald of Meoble and 6th of Morar. Iain Og's father was Captain John MacDonald who fought at Culloden. Captain John MacDonald was also known as "Fear Gaothdail", because he owned property at Gaothdail, just south of the Rhu of Arisaig, Scotland. Captain John's brother, Hugh, was the first Catholic Bishop of the Highlands of Scotland. Bishop Hugh's life is documented in a book by John Watts entitled "Hugh MacDonald: Highlander, Jacobite & Bishop", published by John Donald Publishers, Edinburgh, 2002.

I am a direct descendent of the brother of these 3 sisters - Angus MacDonald, who emigrated to Antigonish County with his wife (possibly) and 3 sons in 1801. They are said to have come on the brig, Nora, arriving at Pictou, NS.

It lists William as having come from Nova Scotia in the census, but nothing else. I am trying to determine how long he was in P.E.I., if any other records exist of him there. I have attempted various avenues of inquiry in Nova Scotia, but to no avail since I don't have enough information on my particular William to confirm with any confidence if any William Fitzgerald I found there (and I did find some) were 'my' William Fitzgerald.

GOODWIN
My great-great grandfather Oliver Goodwin came from Ireland. From what I've learned so far it seems that he came from Monaghan and from the Donagh or Tydavnent parishes and was born around 1837. When he came to PEI he married a Connelly from the Bedque area. The first few children were baptized in Indian River and the rest in Seven Mile Bay. There may be a connection with McGuigan's as well. Has anyone else heard that Goodwin's or McGuigan's come from Monaghan? I've also heard they could be from Tyrone. Has anyone else ever heard of Oliver Goodwin as I would like to know more about him. It was his son John who was my great grandfather. Oliver's middle name may have also been Montgomery.

UPDATE: WAR HERO JAMES ELMER GILLIS aka GUNNER GILLIS
þÿSome time ago, I posted a query about JAMES ELMER GILLIS aka GUNNER GILLIS of
BLOOMFIElD area.
Another researcher recently found his baptism record at Bloomfield parish.
Baptised in 1922 as 'Jacques Ailmer' ?spelling?, JAMES ELMER is son of PETER GILLIS and SOPHIA ARSENAULT, daughter of GASPER ARSENAULT and CATHERINE AUCOIN of Howlan/Duvar area. (PETER is son of ANGUS GILLIS and JULIANNA GILLIS, possibly of Indian River or Grand River areas.)
Another son of PETER and SOPHIA was baptised HUGH EDWARD GILLIS, 1924.
Does anyone remember this family or know of Hugh Edward Gillis, aged 82, or his siblings or his children from Howlan PEI.
I'd appreciate any help in finding members of this family.
Thanks,

GREEN/BYNON/STAVERT/HURRIE - 1850-1900 PEI
After having spent a good amount of time researching these people I feel as I'm making a bit of headway. I would be interested in hearing from anybody who might be able to add to this information:

William H GREEN b. unk - PEI or England [English origin]

William first married Margaret STAVERT September 25, 1867 [daughter of Thomas & Margaret Boa]. They had 3 children: Thomas born c 1868; Archibald McMurdo born September 8, 1879 died August 1, 1955 San Diego, California; Eliza born c 1873.

Margaret STAVERT-GREEN died between 1874-1876

William marries a second time to Jane BYNON [born January 8, 1852 Tryon] on September 18, 1876. William and Jane had 2 children together: Sara Adelaide born June 23, 1877 Charlottetown, PEI; Margaret Marcella "Maggie" born November 8, 1878 Freetown, PEI.

William dies between 1879-1881 as Jane shows "widowed" and living with the children from both marriages in the Charlottetown Royalty, Queens, Prince Edward Island in 1881.

Jane BYNON-GREEN then married James HURRIE/HURRY between 1881-1885. Their children: George born September 14, 1885; Henry born c 1886; Caroline "Carrie" born December 25, 1889; Lemuel White born October 7, 1891.

I have yet to confirm the following - James HURRIE/HURRY was widower at the time of his marriage to Jane. I believe James was first married to Elizabeth CLOUGH/CLOW on April 2, 1867 Charlottetown. On the 1881 census a widower James is living in the Charlottetown Royalty, Queens, Prince Edward Island with his son William age 9 and a female Elizabeth widowed and aged 58. James' mother was Elizabeth West.

My husbands' line is Jane Bynon and William H Green through their daughter Sara Adelaide Green.

I would be interested in any information regarding any of the above mentioned individuals.

Helena

PEIGS Memberships
Hi Everyone:

The PEIGS would like to remind those who haven't renewed their memberships for 2007 that 2007 memberships are now due. Don't miss out on your next issue of the quarterly PEIGS newsletter. The April issue's index has been added to the PEIGS page so you can see all the great articles you might miss out on. Those joining now will receive all issues for this year, which of course will include both the February and April issues already printed, plus those printed for the remainder of the year. Costs are rising, and they need your support to continue the great projects they are working on.

There is some concern that people no longer are joining genealogical societies because of the vast number of on-line resources now available. Let's show them that we still appreciate the many hours of volunteer work and dedication that goes into producing the census transcripts, cemetery transcripts and the other resources the PEIGS excels in making available!

PEIGS memberships may be paid/renewed online at: http://www.peigs.ca/membership.php

Guestbook Problems
Why Aren't the Guestbooks Working? We have been having trouble with Junkeater, our anti-spam provider. I don't know if they are merely relocating their servers, of if they have gone totally Kaput! Meanwhile, I am searching for a new anti-spam solution, and hoping Junkeater will return. They were excellent - not one bit of spam slipped through the guestbook spam prevention while we were using them. As it is a major job to modify the books each time this is necessary, I will wait till I know exactly what is going on, or until I find CAPTCHA software that will meet our needs, especially if it can be housed directly on our server, so we won't be held hostage by off-site protection schemes. I know it is a major inconvenience, but I used to have to edit the guestbook many times each day to remove unwanted spam, so want to ensure that it is protected. Please be patient. If you try to add a message to the guestbook and the little graphic with the numbers appears, you will know it will work, but if the graphic doesn't appear, rest assured it won't. Don't blame it on me - please rightly realize the problem is caused by those who get their thrills spamming guestbooks by adding multiple links to gambling, drug, and pornography sites, and who have caused me literally hundreds of editing hours in the past.

re- 2nd War British children
Hi-
Reagarding my request for info on British children sent to PEI for safety during the 2nd WW, a friend informs me he has been told by the folks at the Archives (PEIPA) that they have a photo taken during 2nd WW of about 20 British children at Government House eating ice cram with an Aiken family from Ch'town. He thinks he can identify 3 of the children-Fosters from England- but not sure of the rest.
I'm still curious how many other little Brits came to PEI.

COMPTON
My greatgrandmother was Jane Ann Compton, born 1864. She was the daughter and first born of Alexander Compton, 1841-1909 and Mary "Ann" Martin 1839-1919. Jane Ann had a daughter born December 2, 1884, my grandmother, Cora Alexenia. Six years later, Jane Ann married Francis Moore and emigrated to Massachusetts. In the 1900 US census, Cora (my grandmother) is listed as Francis Moore's step-daughter, which supports the theory that I have long held that he was not my grandmother's natural father. The question, then, is who is the natural father of Cora Alexenia (Compton)? I believe that the family was living in Flat River at the time of her birth. Any help in tracing this would be greatly appreciated.

He married Charlotte GAMESTER in Charlottetown on July 16, 1879. The only reference I have been able to find on his father is that his name was supposedly David COILEY, born in 1816 in Canada and that he married Charlotte TAYLOR, who was born in 1819. I have found some references to a David KIELLY who married Charlotte TAYLOR in 1845 in PEI. That Charlotte was born in Devon England in 1821 so it is close to the date I have of my great-great grandmother.

MATHESON
An item in the latest edition of the newsletter , included "The first settlers of British origin to make permanent homes in the district were the Matheson family, who came from Ross-Shire, Scotland in 1806. There were three brothers - splendid types of men - Roderick, Murdoch and John. They were married and had large families. They settled respectively at what was known then as Portage, Oyster Bed and the north side of Wheatley River."
My grandmother, Alice (Matheson) Ling was the daughter of Benjamin Matheson .
Is anyone researching the Mathesons of that region who could provide a link between the above -mentioned immigrants and my ancestors?

ANDERSON
Also found this on the GenWeb site in the Minnesota section.

This bio comes from "HISTORY OF WABASHA COUNTY" 1920.

Anderson, H. Cowan (page 234), who for the last 25 years has successfully
followed the occupation of contractor and builder, in Plainview, was born
in Prince Edward Island, Canada, December 13, 1869, son of H. D. And
Margaret (Webster) Anderson. The parents were both native of Canada. The
father in early life was a school teacher, but subsequently made
agriculture his regular occupation. In 1890 he went to the Pacific coast
states, but later returned to Canada, where he died in 1916. His wife died
when her son, the subject of this sketch, was only two weeks old. H. Cowan
Anderson was educated in the public schools of Canada, and at the age of
21 years took a course in contracting and building. He then came to the
States, locating in Lisbon, N.D., where he remained one summer. The
following summer he went to Sumner, Wash., where, until 1894, he was
employed as carpenter in a sash and door factory and other general
building. Then coming to Plainview, Minn., he established himself in
business here as a contractor and builder, which has since been his chief
occupation, though he also is engaged to a limited extent in truck
farming. A thorough master of his trade, he has built up a substantial
reputation, and many of the fine residences and buildings in Plainview and
the vicinity were erected by him, and stand as monuments of his handiwork.
As a man and citizen he is respected throughout the community, his
personal character being as solid and well proportioned as the substantial
structures he has erected. Of a companionable disposition, he had
identified himself with several of the prominent fraternal orders, being a
Mason, an Odd Fellow and a Forester. His membership in the Odd Fellows'
order includes the Rebekah lodge. Mr. Anderson was married November 3,
1894, to Anna s. Friesheim, who was born in Sauk City, Wis., April 7,
1870. After 23 years of happy married life, she died June 27, 1918,
leaving four children: Phyllida E., born September 26, 1896; Douglas F.,
born February 18, 1904; Lenora E., born April 29, 1905; and Mildred A.,
born April 25, 1909. Phyllida E., who is a graduate of the Plainview high
school and the Ellensburg (Wash.) Normal school, is now a teacher in the
state of Washington. Douglas F. is residing in Rochester, Minn. The other
two children reside with their father, Lenora being a student in the
Plainview high school. Mr. Anderson and his family attend the
Congregational church. Mr. Anderson was married April 17, 1920, to Mrs.
Olive Erding.

STEWART
I was browsing on GenWeb and found this entry in the Minnesota section. Hope it helps someone!

Charles Stewart, Itasca County Independent, 18 March 1909

"The angel of death enters the Stewart home. Charles Stewart, age 73
years, a resident of this village for the past five years, quietly
and peacefully passed to the great beyond Tuesday morning March 9th,
at three o'clock. Death was due to paralysis and bronchitis. He had
seemingly been enjoying his usual health till a week prior to his
death at which time he was stricken with paralysis. Tho he was cared
for by a faithful and loving wife and other devoted members of the
family as well as sympathetic friends, death was inevitable and the
frail bond was broken, his spirit taking its flight to that home
prepared for those who have faith in their Maker."
Chas. Stewart was born Dec. 9, 1835, at Park Corners, New
London county, Prince Edwards Island. He came to Minnesota in 1869.
In 1871 he was united in marriage to Miss Isabel Wilcox at Little
Falls. Four children were born of this union, three of whom are
living. They are: Fred Stewart of Hankinson, N. D., Bert and Mamie
Stewart of Hill City.
In the death of this townsman, the community has lost a kind
neighbor, and an industrious and upright citizen while his family
has lost a thoughtful husband and loving father. Those who came to
know him were impressed with his gentle manners and his Christian
character. Altho his residence was not taken up in this village till
he had almost reached his 'three score and ten' he made many warm
friends in this short time. To his widow and family who will yearn
for 'the touch of the vanished hand and the sound of the voice that
is still' the friends and neighbors express their sincere sympathy
in this hour of bereavement and bid them be strong to bear the burden
of sorrow thus allotted them resting with the assurance that 'blessed
be they that die in Christ.

MACK /LOVE Help Smashing Total Brick Wall
Hello,

I have slammed into the proverbial brick wall and have not been able to find anything more on my great-great grandparents' parents. Any help you can provide to smash it down would be enornously appreciated!!

John Henry Mack b. abt 1857 in South Bay, PEI and Bridget Ann Love b. abt 1844 in Ireland (from the 1881 Canada Census). They had 6 children including my great-grandmother, Margaret Jane Mack who immigrated to California, where the family continues to live now. The children were baptized in Sacred Heart R.C. in Alberton & Bloomfield (from the Baptismal Index). John died on 2 Jul 1930 in Lennox & Adington, PEI (from the Canada Death Index).

I would love to be able to learn more about the couple and their parents and families. A record of their marriage or deaths may have the names of their parents and/or a county in Ireland where Bridget was born. There is also family lore that Bridget was adpoted, so there may be a record of that as well. I apologize that I don't have more to go on but would be delighted to return the favor by performing research for you here in Santa Clara County, California. I also have a subscription to Ancestry.com and would be happy to use that resource to return the favor of your help, as well.

POWER / O'BRIEN
THOMAS POWER married to ELLEN O'BRIEN

Looking for info on Thomas Power who left PEI circa 1859 with 3 of his children, Philip, Flora and John and came to live in Newfoundland. It is not known if his wife Ellen or the other two children, Catherine and Johanna came with him.

At least four of their children were baptized in St. Dunstan's Catholic Church, Charlottetown PEI. Johanna - Dec 1855, Catherine - Dec 185? , Flora - Mar 185?, and Philip - Jun 1851.

John died at sea while fishing on the Grand Banks in 1912. He was married and had two sons, Peter who died as a child and John who married a McGRATH.

Flora married a WARD.(Patrick, I believe) They had 1 child - Ambrose who married Lucy COADY

Philip married Catherine GREENE. They had 8 children -
William married Catherine BREWER
Mary Jane married Laurence FOOTE
John Thomas married Mary Ellen GOLDSWORTHY
Philip Francis married 1)Catherine HYNES 2)Agnes HEPDITCH 3)Bridget HEPDITCH
Matilda married ?PICCO
Edward died 1882
Ellen married ?DUNPHY

I have info for the children of William and Catherine and Philip Francis and his wives.

I am particulary interested in finding information on Ellen Power(O'Brien) and her two daughters Catherine and Johanna.

Is Ellen buried in PEI??
What became of her daughters??

I do know that the family was listed in the 1841 census for PEI in lot 35. Thomas Power is listed as a farmer. When he came to Newfoundland and lived in South East Bight he was a Fisherman.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

2 - The HYDE and LEARD files from this site a few years ago gave me:
Minnie Mae CALLBECK (8 May 1877-22 Feb 1928) m. 8 Sep 1898 to William Artemas CAMERON (12 Jul 1872-8 Jul 1954) s/o William Hyde CAMERON and Martha PLATTS

All these William Artemas men have similar birth dates and death dates. Given the marriage dates he may well have married these 2 women. But he surely didn't have 2 sets of parents! Can anyone confirm his parentage and explain my confusion?

GILL
Looking for the Gill family

I am trying to find a family by the name of Gill who lived on Union Road, Prince Edward Island during the war. Their home would have been within walking distance (across fields and a railway line) of the airfield. Their neighbours were the Lamont and the Yeo families. My father was with the RAF and was stationed on PEI between 1941 and 1943. He was befriended by the Gills and has talked of them ever since. He lost touch with them when he was posted to India.

He does not remember the Christian names of Mr. & Mrs. Gill, but their children, who would have been in their twenties then, were Walter, Annie and Mary. Walter was the eldest by about five years and was serving with the Canadian forces in Britain. My father does not know if Walter survived the war. At some point Annie moved to Ottowa he tells me, while Mary and Walter’s wife, also Mary, stayed on the farm and helped to keep it going. Walter and Mary had three children I believe, although I know the names of only two; James and Elisabeth.

My father became very excited recently when I told him about Google Earth. Within days he had found a neighbour kind enough to find PEI for him so that he could try to see the Gill farm. Unfortunately the resolution was not good enough to enable him to recognise it. The fact that he did this made me realise that he would really like to know what happened to the Gills, how life has treated
them.

If Annie, Mary or Walter are still alive and can remember Leonard (Len) Kenny my father would be so thrilled to hear of them, perhaps even talk to them.

If there is anyone out there who can give me any information that can help me please contact me at:

His grandparents were Donald Joseph and Margaret (not sure of her last name). Elizabeth Jane's parents were Thomas Dunning and Margaret Somers. I'd love to learn more about my heritage. I look forward to hearing from "lost relatives."

McDonald, Fraser
On June 12, 1841, Mary Ann Graham of Charlottetown, married Alexander McDonald, a tailor, while her younger sister, Margaret Graham, on the same day married Allan Fraser, also a tailor. Fraser & McDonald tailors were operating on Queen's Street in 1842, and Alexander and Mary Ann Graham are know to have been living in Charlottetown into the 1850s. Does anyone know anything further on either Alexander McDonald or Allan Fraser or their families?

CAMERON
Looking for any information on Jesse Cameron, who married Thomas Alexander in 1822. It has long been said that Jesse was the daughter of Ewen Cameron of Charlottetown and her actual name was Jane. This is not possible though, as Ewen's daughter, Jane, was only 7 years old in 1822. Does anyone know anything about Jesse (Cameron)Alexander?

ELWORTHY
I am trying to find marriage records for Cannon Elworthy (born in England) and Margarite (unknown). They were married about 1889. She was born in PEI, Canada about 1870. They both immigrated to MA, USA in 1890 so I suspect they were married in Canada. Thanks, John

WICKETT
Hazel has replied twice to my inquiry, but I am not able to reply to her at name (AT) pei.sympatico.cs.

Additional info on my grandfather:
John is shown in the PEI 1891 Census as age 16, Church of England, Lot 13-N, and a laborman with John Yeo, family 77. In the 1881 PEI Census in Lot 13.

John's father was English and his mother was Scotch. He migrated to New Haven CT and then to Brockton MA. He may have had two brothers who went west and attended Oregon State U. John had 12 brothers and sisters.

John worked as a lumberjack, shoed horses and drove an ice wagon with two horses. He also cut natural ice from ponds for years. One day he slipped and his right foot was cut off by the ice cutter at 6 inches above the ankle. So at 44 years he was wearing an artificial leg. He worked for the Brockton Ice Co. in several positions, worked in a shoe shop, washed dishes in a restaurant - he just had to be doing something.

EMIGRATION
My grandfather, John Franklin Wickett, came from PEI to MA about 1890.

Most of his siblings either went to MA or ME, about the same time.

My questions: How did they travel? Overland? By sea to Boston or Portland, or some other seaport? How long did it take? What were typical hardships, if any? Why did most end up in Brockton MA, or Old Town ME? Did they have a promise of employment? and/or a place to live?

I'd really appreciate your comments.

My gggrandmother was Elizabeth LOCKHART, born in Charlottestown, PEI [circa 1845-65 (basing that DOB soley on her husband's birth year)] who married William Alexander WEATHERBY. Their daughter was Annie Jane WEATHERBY who was my grandmother's (Florence Ruth PROSSER) mother. Before accessing Don Kyle's ancestry files, I only knew of Annie Jane WEATHERBY. Now I'm trying to obtain more information on Elizabeth LOCKHART'S line. Thanks for any help you can provide! Regards, Vicki
