This is my great grandmother's name and was from Thames, Cambridge, NZ. As you can see my name is from hers and Don Stewart was my Uncle. There is some common parts to our history that don't appear to be a coincidence. What is your opinion?

Hello. My great great grandfather's name was John McKay. According to what I have been able to find about him, he was born in Clyne, Scotland and immigrated to Prince Edward Island sometime before 1839 when he married Catherine McLeod in Prince Edward Island. He died in 1811 in PEI. His daughter (my great grandmother was Jennie (Janet?) McKay, born in 1850). She married James Dede Smart who was also born on PEI in 1852. I am trying to find more about my McKay background, and appreciate any help or direction.

My deepest condolences to the Hunter Family; I'm so sorry for your loss of such a kind and selfless man. As others have expressed, I wish I had taken the opportunity to thank him for his amazing effort, work, and passion while he was alive. His tireless dedication opened an entire branch of my family tree of which I was completely unaware, and am now incredibly proud to be descended from.

My Ross family members believed in making your own way, pulling your own boot-straps, not riding your families' coat-tails... to them, relating family history was considered "bragging" which led to later generations knowing nothing about "where we came from", and it wasn't, as many thought, "Massachusetts"! Without Dave's foresight to put this all together and save it for posterity, my cousins and I would likely never have learned about Ann Nancy Gillies Ross and her amazing journey that brought us all to where we are today.

I like to think that somehow, somewhere Dave now feels all the love and gratitude from countless people around the globe who found their Ancestors, were amazed by their incredible stories of brave and unlikely journeys, settlements, lives, loves and loss. He was an amazing man and he will be deeply missed by many -- a mark made, and a life well lived, no doubt. ~ xo

Richards / Burhoe
I am researching the James Ingram Burhoe of lot 49 (b. 1853, d. 1949). I've found that he married and had 5 children with Selina Richards (b. Dec 1, 1856, d. Sep 4, 1884). However, I'm having trouble tracing Selina's ancestry. I believe her father was Thomas Richards and mother was Agnes Richards. I think she could be the same person as RUSILIA RICHARDS listed on the Richards lineage. The birthdates are the same except one year apart. Could you please help me confirm who her parents were?

Shawn Gallant <shawngallant86 [at] hotmail [dot] com>
Web Site -
Ennismore, ON CAN

Hello, my name is Shawn Gallant. I've recently been trying to put together our family tree and also digitizing all of our family photos, vidoes, and documents.

I've been using and other websites to trace back our family. My Grandmother (Valarie Gallant) gave me a book that is called "Preserving The Past - A History Of Cascumpec - Fortune Cove 1779-1979". It has been helpful to go back a few generations. I've included a URL with pages I scanned showing up to my father (Vincent Gallant JR).

On page 302 it starts with John and Elizabeth Gallant having Maxime Gallant. Maxime Married Judith Doucette and they had a son Joseph Gallant. Joseph Gallant married Margaret Anne "Judith" Arsenault and they had a son Vincent Gallant. Vincent Gallant married my married Valarie Costain and they had my father Vincent Jr. Vincent Jr and my mother Julia Gallant married and had me.

I have found one site that says that a " Jean Gallant 1843-1939" Married a "Louise dite Lisette dit lisabeth Gallant 1847-1944" and that might be the father of Maxime in the book that starts with "John and Elizabeth". It aslo said on this site that Jean's father was "Joseph Hache Gallant 1816-1890" and his mother was "Marie Arsenault 1813-1851"

If this were correct I'd be able to link back very far with all the great recourse and information on this site. As there is a great text document on your site that traces from there all the way back to "PIERRE LARCHE1 HATCHE born Abt. 1618 in Montdedier, Beauvais, France". The only thing is on this great document that was posted by "John Clifford Gallant, 1929 - 2001" Jean was not listed as a son of Joseph Hache Gallant and Marie Arsenault.

I was wondering if anyone on here would have some information this history? If I could get past "Jean or John Gallant" and place in into that great text document that goes all the way back to the 1600s, I'm sure I could take it from there. It has just been difficult to say for sure where John has fit in to the tree.

I'm sorry this is so long, I just wanted to make sure I could fill in as much detail as I could. But thank you for having such a great recount of history on your site and I hope you can get back to me.

Thank You - Shawn Gallant

Even after proofreading- Agnes MacKenzie Clarke b-1858 not 1958....

Friday, September 17, 2021 at 15:40:31 (PDT)
Harold W Hamblet <gospace [at] juno [dot] com>
Savannah, NY USA

According to USA and Canada censuses Agnes MacKenzie Henry was born on Prince Edward Island in 1958, married George A(lfred?) Clarke in 1874 and emigrated to the USA in 1886. They are in the 1881 Canada census, 1895 Kansas census. and 1900 USA census- George died in 1907. Agnes stays in Kansas and is in the 1910, 1820, 1930, and 1940 federal census, and 1925 Kansas census.

I'm pretty sure George is George Alfred Clark in the 1861 Canada census in York, New Brunswick, son of William Clark and Ann because his younger brother is Charles Frederick Clark and he named one of his sons Charles Frederick. (There are two names on other family trees for who Ann is- and I haven't figured that out- but there appears to be 2 George A Clarks born about the same time married to an Ann- 2 different Anns. And I think some trees have them blended together...)

5 of their children according to census and USA records were born in New Brunswick and 3 are on the 1881 Canada census- Edgar Henry Clarke b-1875, Winifred Ethelyn Clarke (on some records as Winifred MacKenzie Clarke) b-1877, and born after the census Charles Frederick Clarke b-1882 and Frank Judson Clarke b-1885. I have not found birth or baptism records in Canada for them either on ancestry or other online records, and none of them are in any of the PEI lineages I've searched.

I am DNA related to a Sara Guettel who is descended from them- and every line of hers except this goes to Germany- where I have no known ancestors. I have both Henry and MacKenzie ancestors. So this is where I'm stuck- Agnes MacKenzie Henry b-1858 on PEI according to any records I can find, with 5 children born in New Brunswick. Is she a MacKenzie or a Henry- or both? I'm thinking the latter.

That's pretty much it if anyone can be of help.

Looking for the parents of Fidele Gaudet, husband of Marie Gallant (or Arsenault). He had a daughter named Obeline who married Aubin Arsenault in 1939 in Egmont Bay. Obeline may have already been a widow (another Arsenault) at that time. Would also appreciate the parents of Obeline's mother, Marie Gallant or Arsenault.
Any help would be appreciated. Obeline is not a direct ancestor but Aubin is a fondly remembered Pp of mine and I would love to get more information about him and his marriages. (He actually married 3 times)
Un gros merci...many thanks!

Dear Linda and Jeffery Hunter,

I am so sorry to learn of Dave's passing and while I never knew him I have used the "Island Register" for years now (and freely recommended it to others) for researching the families and Island Heritage of my grandparents (William) Welsh Murray & (Elizabeth) Elora Woodside) of New London / Clinton - Margate.

Bless Dave and his efforts over these last 20 or so years to compile, organize and share all that is on the website and do it all for "no charge" to the benefit of everyone, whether "Home" residents or "Away" decendants like myself from San Jose, California. It has been a treasure not only of facts but of giving the feeling of PEI itself - warm, welcoming and forthright. While I have been fortunate to visit family and places on PEI on 3 different occasions, I never thought of reaching out and thanking Dave in person and am sorry for that. Perhaps the Genealogy Center will pick up where he left off so that his efforts to date won't go to waste.
Sincerely, Bobbi Eddy

I am currently researching my ancestry and in particular John Robert Biggar (1799-1865), my 1st cousin 4 x removed, who emigrated from Scotland to Prince Edward Island around 1800 with his 2 brothers James and Thomas. I believe that they lived at Lot 67 (?) and that John was living at Lot 78 at the time of his death. As well as any information regarding them, I am also trying to establish the link between other family members around that period, who went on to Ontario and Saskatchewan where William Hodgins Biggar (1852-1922) was the person after whom the town of Biggar was named. Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

I am searching for data on my Great Grandmother who was born circa 1845 and married to John William Dillon who emigrated from Bethnal Green London England to PEI. I can find no information on Elizabeth M Hogan other than a possible birth date on 12 Dec 1845 and a later 1891 Census listing "1891 Charlottetown Royalty, Queens, Prince Edward Island, Canada". They had a large family and I am hoping that some of their descendants may still reside in PEI and can provide more information. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

I'm researching my great, great grandparents Bridget Fisher (approx 1852) who married Thomas Murphy (approx 1837). Their children (9 of them) were baptized in Sturgeon. Looking for Bridget's family- parents, siblings; and Thomas' family - perhaps he came from New Brunswick - I'm not sure. Why did they move to Boston and how did they travel to Boston(any records of them leaving PEI?). How did Fishers get to PEI? Any records? Am happy to share Ancestry Tree. THANK You!!!!

I have not been able to find his wife's family, I think her name was Isabella (Bella) McInnes/MacInnes. She was 14 yrs younger than Dougall. I'm trying to find their parents names. I have a possible father's name of Linlay MacLeod.
I believe they moved to PEI from Uig, Scotland.
If anyone can shed some light on my search, that would be greatly appreciated.

I believe that Archibald was married to Christianna Steele. Since my March 2019 query here, it has become a possibility that our ancestors may be descendants of Ignatius MacDonald, the first husband of Eliza Rendell and not the children of her second husband Daniel.These brick walls are hard to put a chink in!

Captain John A. MacDonald (1817-1865) is reported to have taken a ship from Liverpool, England in 1849 with gold miners to California...a ship by the name of Prospect was build in 1849 in PEI and sold in Liverpool in 1849. A ship by the name Prospect left Liverpool Dec. 1849 and arrived in S.F. In August 1850. Captain was listed as McDonald. Ship sailed for ports in Mexico and return to San Francisco in January 1851.
In the Hutchinsons Dictionary of 1864 for Georgetown he is listed as a tavern keeper at California cor. Kent.. his house was on Kent near Gordon...history of Georgetown book has him running a hotel. Maybe a hotel and tavern...any idea where California would be?? He had a son in later years who Daughters ran a hotel and telephone exchange...same place???
He was known as California John according to his sons obituary in the Patriot of 29 Jan 1912.

MacDonald of Georgetown (1842-1912) states his father was known as California John as he took a ship from Liverpool, England in 1849 with gold diggers to California. Brig Prospect was constructed in Souris in 1849. Owner was a Joseph MacDonald, a merchant in Charlottetown. Ship was sold In Liverpool in 1849.
Brig Prospect arrived in San Francisco from Liverpool in August 1850 after a voyage of 232 days. Captain was given as McDonald..Could this be my Captain John A.MacDonald? Ship would have left in December 1849. Is this how he got the name California John?
In 1864 he is a tavern keeper at Kent and California Street in Georgetown...there is no street named California in Georgetown today. Would appreciate any thoughts or information on my Captain John A. MacDonald

Loyalist of Bedeque, PEI" Ed. by Ross Graves. Published by M.F. Schurman
Company 1973.

The Vancouver EULA Genealogist, Linda Nygard, has found a primary
source for Schurman as a Loyalist (Proof #7) for me.

And I have proofs for myself and three generations to my
Great-grandfather James Gay Schurman (& Jane Ross).

I am having some difficulty in finding primary sources for generations #5 and #6:
William & Jane's youngest son, John Schurman, born Wilmot Valley, PEI, 1796 (proof #5);

And his son, William (aka "Governor") Schurman (proof #6) (probably by wife Phoebe Hewson McMonagal), b 1817 PEI (later moved with his family to NS in 1824)

What primary proofs are available? Family Bible; Baptismal record; family letter;....

Alexander was born 1778 and died 3 April 1846 in Bear River.
Does anyone know the birth order of his children?
Captain Ronald (death date 1845) is referred to as second son when he was married in 1840. I have pegged his son Captain Roderick as the oldest.
Flora is referred to as second daughter. Is Jessie married to MacDougall the first daughter? Where does Mary fit in. I have dates for Catherine, Donald and Anastasia so I am assuming they are the three youngest. Anastasia is referred to as his youngest daughter.
Captain John A, is the fifth son. Where do Captain Angus, and James fit?
Captain Roderick, Captain John A, Catherine, Anastasia and Donald are well documented.

Mcdonald/MacDonald Genealogy
Searching for info on Mcdonald/MacDonalds. My great great grandparents were Ronald Mcdonald and Mary Jane Cameron. Ronalds father was Alexander, and he came to PEI from Scotland. I only have his name. Ronald and possibly his father were blacksmiths. One of them may have some of their pieces in a museum there, large pieces like ploughs and sleighs. They may have lived in Brookfield. Ronald trained his four sons as blacksmiths. He also had six daughters. I know all of their names. I must have a lot of relatives there. My great grandfather William Grant MacDonald came to Hardwick, Vt looking for work in the granite quarries, and met and married my great grandmother. The Mcdonalds changed the spelling of their name to MacDonald, the Vermont MacDonalds, anyway.

Hello, I hope that someone can email me and let me know the whereabouts of my first cousin, Bernard Joseph Griffin (Bernard). He and his wife Eleanor used to live in Oregon in the United States, but I haven't received a letter or email from him in some time. Bernard and Eleanor have two daughters (I think), and one of them I believe lives in California and is either a doctor or is married to one. Bernard's father, Albert Griffin, was a brother to my father, Jimmie Griffin. Albert and Jimmie were born in Glengarry, Lot 7, Prince Edward Island, Canada. If a close relative of Bernard's and Eleanor's sees this email, kindly email me back.

I am searching for the parent of my Great Grandparents/Siblings/any family members for Harriett Boucher Villard born abt. 1847-1849. Her family originated from France as noted on multiple census. She married William Gregory in 1874 in PEI. He was born in England abt. 1854-1859. I believe he had multiple family members there. I believe Harriet had a large family in and around PEI. She often signed her name using family "dit" names such as: Harriet Villard, Charlotte Boucher, Harriett Boucher. They lived in LOT 44-45 .She and William had 3 children born in PEI before moving to Boston, Mass. She signed her name as Harriett Villard from that day on. It was here in Boston they began the immigration process. I believe they had family in the Boston area. They eventually moved to Portland, Maine where they became naturalized US citizens. They had 3 more children, one of them was my grandfather, Harry Gregory. I would like to know my family roots with the names of my great grandparents. I have begun a family genealogy book to pass on to my daughter and grandchildren. I am on under GregorySmithColby Tree and the screen name is. I have been unable to trace where either of them died or were buried. I would like to have closure and visit their graves. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Edmund or Edmond Locke born bat 1825 on PEI. Moved to Nova Scotia - by 1850. Married Ann Heighton, before 1850 either in PEI or NS. Son Alexander Locke born 1850 in Nova Scotia.Edmond died about 1895 in Canada - likely Nova Scotia. I can not find any references to this family in PEI. Need Edmond's parents or siblings. Any help appreciated. Family theory is the Locke's were Loyalists in the American Revolution and moved to Canada in late 1790s or early 1800's - no facts to back this up however.

It has been several years since I have posted a query about the Hughes family of Lot 48 and 49, and still no luck in connecting this family to other Hughes on PEI. So here I go again.

I am looking for relatives of the James Hughes (widower) who married Margaret Woods in 1842. They lived on Lot 48. James had died by 1861. I have traced most of their children (Sarah (Finnegan), James, Bernard, and Ellen (Quinn), but have lost track of two children--Margaret and Owen.

There were several Hughes families living in the same area as shown on the 1863 Lake Map. There were two Thomas Hughes families, John Hughes and Edward Hughes. I suspect Bernard Hughes living in the area is also related. Some of the family may have lived on Pisquid Road near St. Joachim's in 1830-50.

I would be most grateful if you could provide information that would tie James and Margaret's family to other Island Hughes of the same or earlier generation. If you know what happened to Owen and Margaret, I would be thrilled to know. Thanks.

Hi, I am trying to find the parents of Daniel Baker. He might be known as Donald Baker as well. The marriage solemnization on December 13, 1875 in Summerside PEI has his name very clearly as Donald Baker, who married Lavinia Pillman.

Later there are records from the marriages of two of the daughters of Daniel and Lavinia in Massachusetts. Clara for married April 19th, 1897, and her father is listed as Daniel Baker, mother Lavinia Pillman. Elizabeth married in Massachusetts on July 12, 1899. Again, the parents are Daniel Baker and Lavinia Pillman.

DNA matches with descendants of Clara and Elizabeth confirm that this is the Daniel Baker we are looking for, but it is an absolute brick wall trying to figure out who the parents of Daniel are, and with the name discrepancy on the marriage solemnization, I am at a dead stop.

I would appreciate any suggestions to help me further this search.

At the 1901 census she is shown to be living with Harrit (likely a Harriett/Harriet)Matthews who is in her 60s, Eliza Clow who is 22. My grandmother is 8 and noted as lame. She is listed as Harriett's niece. Eliza Clow is listed as Harriett's cousin. Also noted on the Methodist Marriage Registry for Feb 4, 1910 marriage to Lea Raynor (Rayner?). Then divorced per family member account. Then moves to Boston and eventually marries Raymond Chambers, my grandfather. She dies young in 1928 and is buried at Cedar Grove Cemetery in Queens, New York. Grateful for any assistance provided.

Hello! I have been trying to find any information for my 4x ggf and ggm. Their son, my 3x ggf, married in Iowa, but his marriage record shows he was born in Ashley Falls, MA. There was no information on him even living in MA until he was older. I found a potential connection to a Thornton (my maiden name) family from Prince Edward Island! I had NO idea! I've found Richard (my 4x ggf) on many Canadian Census records, along with his wife, Ann (Hennessy), and their several children, my 3x ggf along with them. They state both of them were born in PEI, but that Richard's father may have immigrated from England. Hennessy, I know, is an Irish surname, so I'd love to know more about her parents, whom I have tentatively identified as James Hennessy and Ann Sigsworth. Thank you!

Hello Everyone.
I have been "doing genealogy" off and on for about 15 years. My Mom was born on PEI and comes from a family that I am quite surprised that there is no mention of in the Island Register lineage pages. I am currently in the process of updating the info I have and am considering putting my database on here to possibly help some other genealogists. I feel doing that would help me repay the help I have had from others along the way. The trouble is that I have absolutely no idea on how to do that. As I have said many times in the past is there anyone out there that can give me some direction. Thanks for the help. I hope to talk to you soon. OPPS I almost forgot. My Mom's maiden name was Pridham. Her parents were Harry Clayton Pridham and Christina (Tina) Marshall. Once again I hope to talk to you soon Hadley Burns Jr.

I am trying to connect Anslem (b. 1842)(Ansolem, Anselem, Anslem, etc.) McDonald (m. Flora McLellan b. 1843)to his ancestors who came from Scotland. My grandmother, Marguerite McDonald Delaney, (daughter of Ronald Angus McDonald of Glace Bay Cape Breton, granddaughter of Anselm)told me he came from Uiste with his brother Hugh. This is clearly not true, as he declares in various places he was born on PEI as were his parents, maybe. But perhaps his ancestors did come from Uiste. Familysearch genealogies declares his parents and grandparents: Ronald (b. 1795) and Mary McDonald (b. 1793) and Angus (b. 1770)and (b. 1772)Catherine McDonald.

Hi there! I am looking for further clarification and assistance with my family tree. My great grandfather was Frances Bushee, (Villard) his baptism record says his parents were Andrew Bushee and Caroline Longerhy, date of birth september 2nd 1862..

However, I had previous information from census etc that he is indeed the son of Henry Bushey and Caroline Longaphee really appreciate that.I am wondering if there was a misunderstanding with the spelling of the baptism record?

MACDONALD - CHARLOTTETOWN AND QUEEN'S COUNTY - In early June, Donald McDonald, a native of Tracadie, from which place he has been absent about forty-five years, visited Portland while on his way to Seattle to visit his son, Archy, who is a railroader in that place. Mr. McDonald is visiting in this city his sister Cecilia, Mrs. (Capt.) Thos. Callaghan of Ninth and Alberta Streets, and his cousin, Mrs. Ellen White of 292 Weidler Street. He is about seventy-five years of age, but is yet smart and has an abundance of snow-white locks that he is not ashamed of. When the then young man left Tracadie shortly after the American Civil War, he went to Boston, where he engaged in carpenter work, and later took contracts in partnership with a cousin of his from the eastern part of P. E. Island, John McGillivray, who later moved to San Francisco. About 33 years ago the two partners came to Denver, Colorado, where Mr. McDonald did a good contracting business until he retired from active life a few years ago. Mr. McDonald lives in comfort in Denver with his son John A. and two daughters, Margaret and Mary. The last named is making the Portland-Seattle trip with him. Another son named John lives in Pueblo, Colo. Besides the sister mentioned above two other sisters are alive, Maggie (Mrs. Roach), who was step-mother to the late Jas. J. Roach, editor of the Boston Pilot, and Nellie (Mrs. Slade) of Danvers,

Alexander & Mary had 4 daughters - at least Sarah,Mary,Margarete (born 1820)and Flora (born 1827) and 1 son Angus born 1841.Margarete died 1900 at Cardigan PEI.Angus died 1876. Both men where listed in the 1841 Census at Lot 52,they were all Catholics and 2 brothers of my own 4 x's greatgrandfather John Martin who drowned 1840 Benbecula.Would greatly appreciate any info on their families.Particularly if any ancestars are still living on PEI. All 3 were sons of Angus Martin(born ca
1770) and a Macaulay lady from Benbecula.There were many Scottish Martins on PEI in the old days predominately Protestant ones, but only a handful of them
were Catholic like my ancestors were. We Martins traveled alot my own family ancestors from Uachdar Benbecula,to Sydney CP,Stellarton NS,New York, London and finally today to Munich Germany.But I researched PEI alot and it looks like a wonderful place.Both my grandmother Annie (Turnbull ) and greatgrandmother Mary (Cardiff) were born in Charlottetown so I guess I have a little of old PEI in me too!

I believe Joseph Cottle Morris's brothers had their names miss spelled on their tombstones; Robert "Bagster" Morris should be "Baxter".
His other brother George "Muntan" Morris should be Mountain.
I drove 1700 miles and got quite a laugh from that, so if you've seen a man laughing in the cemetery, this could be why. Sorry; just struck me funny.
I found no connection of the names Mountain or Baxter, and believe them to be shipbuilding friends. John Morris and his sons built ships of the Trout River at the Stanley Bridge.

Several years ago I found what I was looking for in a book by Bev Millar titled "Keeping in Touch". I was searching for the background of a lady named Mary Hutchinson from PEI who married into the Wilson family in the UK in the 1790's.Bev's book not only identified her but lost track of her when she left PEI! The connection was made. In the meantime my sister has taken over our family tree and on a recent visit to the UK she mentioned finding reference to a possible previously unknown sister of Mary, also in the UK.
I am trying to find out who is continuing Bev Millar's work as I am unable to contact either her or her husband Wyman.

The following was posted in blog below. For those with Cole and Penman ancestry in PEI, it is very interesting. I will check it out further but this should be pertinent for any descendants of Benjamin Cole and Isabelle Robbins from Bedeque. Also, we know that George Penman had four daughters, Ann/Nancy, spouse of Donald Montgomery of Malpeque; Margaret, spouse of John Ramsay of Tyne Valley; Elizabeth, spouse of David Murray from Bedeque; Christy, spouse of Hugh Montgomery of Tyne Valley; and Jane, spouse of James Townsend of Park Corner. This Mary, widow of the James Cole mentioned below, could be the mother of the younger Penman girls or maybe all of them. Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Celebrating Lucy Maud Montgomery

Today Google celebrates the birthday of Lucy Maud Montgomery (November 30, 1874 April 24, 1942). She is the author of Anne of Green Gables. ...

Lucy Maud Montgomery is a distant cousin of mine. I descend from James Cole and his wife Mary (maiden name unknown) who came to North America from Bletchley, England. Their son, Benjamin Cole, is my great4-grandfather. James Cole died sometime around 1765 and Mary married George Penman. The history is confusing, they may have lived in New England and fled to P.E.I. after the American Revolution. They self-identify as United Empire Loyalists.

My Note: Although the Montgomery family lore and stories passed down had George Penman as a paymaster under Lord Rollo and some of his daughters were born in New England. To date, no record of military service for George has been found. However, in the listing of his Estate effects in 1804, there are red uniforms included and there have been references to a Major Penman. Also, there was a David Penman living in Tryon during the 1798 census. He had daughters also named Jane & Elizabeth. There is also a Mary Cole, who was a spouse of one of the Strangs from Bedeque but I can't find that posting right now. Hopefully this information on Benjamin Cole's ancestors will help his descendants find their roots in England.

Maria was born on March 12 1829, in England.
Sarah had 10 siblings: William 'Henry' Cudmore, Mary Jane Cudmore and 8 other siblings.

Margaret Ledret Binns Scott Bearisto
Would any one know the final resting place of my Great, Great Grandmother Margaret Ledret Binns Scott Bearisto? Family lore stated that she was buried in Sherwood Cemetery in Charlottetown with the Scott family however when we visited there this summer this was not the case. We are thinking now she may be in the Summerside area as that is where her daughter Eva Bearisto Bishop settled and her Scott children had all left the Island by the time of her death in 1919/20. Many Thanks Laura

Neuburg Donau, Bavaria Germany

Dear Island Register Community,

My name is Andre Meyer. My grandfather is Mr. Paul Cain, a descendant of a Cain Family in PEI, but as my father was adopted by his german grandfather, the name "cain" was lost on the way...
Im doing some research about my family these days, but as I just can use the digitalised records I came to a halt.
As far as I found out the line on the PEI contains: Converse C. Cain (1883) - David Cain (1846) - John Cain (1811 Irland)and their wifes Helen Perry (1885), Mary J. Hillson (1847), and Catherine MacDonald (1813?).
Im thankful for every bit of information about these people. Im especialy interested in Catherine MacDonald (and her heritage)as I only found records about the name "catherine". Other amateur genealogists name her MacDonald, but I didn't see any records to proof this.
Thank you very much for your help!

please see below from the BBC please contact them directly if you have any information:

BBC Scotland is on the lookout for Scottish-Canadians descended from the ship the Hector. On September 15th 1773, the vessel landed at Browns Point in Pictou in Nova Scotia. The tired three-masted cargo vessel had almost not made it, overcoming terrible sickness and epic sea storms. But when the 189 Highlanders disembarked, it would change Canada forever. The Hector was the first ship to directly transport passengers from Scotland to Nova Scotia. The historic voyage marked the beginning of a massive wave of immigration that would shape the future of North America.

The BBC is keen to hear any personal stories from any Canadians or Americans descendant from those who boarded the ship in Scotland in 1773.

You can contact the programmes researcher Nadine Lee by e-mail or by phone +0044 1224 384 816.

Hi All: Just a note to say that we got to meet Dave Hunter in person today at his home and Telephone Museum at Brush Wharf in Orwell Cove. What an amazing collection of telephone and related equipment. Today's young kids would be absolutely blown away by the old style rotary phones, teletype machines etc. It is a lovely part of the Island to visit and worthwhile to see this amazing museum. Kudos to Dave for all his work and dedication to preserving the history of the telephone here and elsewhere. It was also nice to browse through an old phone book back in the 1920's just to see who was listed there. Great Job Dave!!!!!

Allan "Sandy" MacDonald born C 1837 married to Mary McAskill 13 Nov 1867.
Allan is the only known son of Alexander and possibly Flora McDonald of Blooming Point. The 1841 census seems to indicate there were four sons and one daughter
Allan and Mary were the parents of Alexander, Sarah, John Augustine, John Angus, Mary Ellen married to Thomas Lacey and Teresa.
Allan died in 1879 and his wife in 1880. Mary's first cousin Neill McAskill appeared in court as Sarah and Mary Ellen were both living with him.
In checking Massachusetts marriage records I have located a marriage record for a John A McDonald (parents Allan S. McDonald and Mary McAskill of Prince Edward Island) to a Mary O'Brien in 1901. Three children were born to this couple Margaret 1904, John Victor 1906 and Warren 1909. Family is on the 1900 US Federal Census. Does anyone have knowledge of this family?

Following a lead My greatgrandfather was listed a John Francis Quin(n) Curley on the 1881 Census living with Patrick Curley family. For some reason it was thought that his parents were John Quinn and Rachael (Rachel) Duffy He was born 1865ish Notice John F. Quinn had two siblings Patrick and Mary. Perhaps he moved in with Curley family to help on the farm and since they treated him like family when he immigrated to USA he changed his name to John Francis Curley. Any help out there if there is a record of where John F. Quinn went?

I've been digging around one of my dead ends recently, and I'm still not having much luck. One set of my 3x great-grandparents were born in PEI, and eventually took their family to Bath, Maine. They are John McPhee and Anastasia (Annie) McPherson, and from their death certificates I have names for both of their parents, but I've been unsuccessful in locating anything on either sets of parents.

According to their death certificates, John's parents were Daniel McPhee and Mary McComis, and that both were born in Scotland. Annie's parents were James McPherson and Mary Macauley, also said to have been born in Scotland.

All the information I have says that both John McPhee and Annie McPherson were born in PEI somewhere. John was born September 5, 1839, and Annie was born circa 1841.

Any help that anyone can give is very much appreciated.

I am currently researching my McDonald ancestry from New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, Canada.
My Great-Grand Mother was J. Elizabeth McDonald, born 1865 in Point Duchene, Westmoreland, New Brunswick, CA. Died in Bangor, Penobscot Co., Maine, USA on 7 January 1942.
Her parents were Angus McDonald and Sarah J. Thompson, both originally from PEI.

I have found ( on-line) a Baptism record for one Josephine Elizabeth McDonald in Shediac, NB from the "Acadia, Canada, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1670-1946 stating her birth date as 06 January 1865 and her parents as Angus McDonald and Sarah Thompson. Elizabeth's grave stone shows "J. Elizabeth" Maynard.

The family is found in the 1861 and 1871 Canada Census, Shediac, Westmoreland, NB and the 1881 Canada Census for Lot 12, Prince Edward Island. Sarah J. McDonald list identified as a widow in the 1881 PEI Census.
Other siblings of Elizabeth I have found in the Bangor area are a brother Alexander "Sandy" (noted in Elizabeth's Obituary) and a daughter, Sarah A. (McDonald) Flora.

A marriage record from "Prince Edward Island Marriage Registers, 1832-1888", shows Angus McDonald and Sarah Thompson being married on 05 February 1855: Peter McIntyre R.C.C. officiating.
I have also found a birth record for one William Eldon McDonald, born 14 May 1855, parents Angus McDonald and Sarah Thompson, St. Mary's Parish, Brae, Lot 9, P. McIntyre officiating.(Prince Edward Island, Baptism Index, 1788-1943{ on-line]) William is eldest child listed in census records.
I am most interested in finding this Angus McDonalds parentage and where they came from in Scotland.

I have more information available for Sarah Thompson's family. I believe her parents to be William Thompson and Ruth Chappel, she was born in Richmond, PEI 03 July 1831.

I'm trying to prove that a Thomas MAHAR, bapt. Co Laois in 1822 is the son of Edward MAHAR of Indian River.

Can anyone provide an indisputable link?

I've read the histories of Darnley and Spring Valley and maybe some I've forgotten by now, but I really need to find a link as strong as a vital record, because that would definitely give me the birth area of my maternal ggg grandparents!

For any interested, Thomas' birth info is:
Name: Thomas Maher
Date of Birth:
Date of Baptism: 01-Feb-1822
CountyCo. Laois
Denomination:Roman Catholic
Father:Ned Maher
Mother:Betty Shea

Take Shea very loosely. Sometimes it's SHEAL, Shiel, Sheels, Shiels, and so on!

Our Lund family line had six children born in the Pownal Bay area c. 1820-1833. I have been unable to find birth records for these children. At the time of my earlier research, someone had suggested that there were Cherry Valley Registers in existence, but they were being held in private hands. I made several phone calls to various people (cannot remember who at this point) but was never able to locate them.

I have been researching my family for a number of years but always hit a dead end when it came to my Maternal grandfather. His name was George P Burke born 1882 in Elmsdale,PEI. He died in Boston,MA in 1911 ( I have that death certificiate)
His father's name was John Burke born 1842 in Elmsdale and died in 1924. His mother was Ellen(sometimes seen as Helen) Stewart Ramsay born 1840 died 1922
I have been unable to trace any family of my Grandfather beyond his father......totally dead end ; like the line never existed!
I recently received information that my Great grandfather John Burke's actual birth name was McKenna! The story given was that my Great grandfather and his siblings were adopted and some kept the McKenna name while others took the Burke name
If anyone has any information or can direct me where to look I would be very appreciative. I have not found anything in adoption online records.

If I were writing John Clarks obituary I would report that he was born around 1751, in a place unknown to his Prince Edward Island descendants, and died in 1813, probably in Charlottetown. He was a cabinet-maker, land speculator, tavern keeper and MLA. His first wife (whose name is unknown to me) was the mother of: James (c1776 pre 1813); William (c1777-1842), a farmer who married Elizabeth Crosby and resided in Lot 25, PEI; John Jr. (c1778-1838) who married Elizabeth Frances Koch and lived in Halifax; Mary (c1779-1828) who married William McKie, Jr., a farmer who lived in Elliot River, PEI; and Ellen (Helen) (c1781-1828) who married Duncan McEwen, Jr. a farmer who lived in Elliot River, PEI. John Clarks second wife, Elizabeth Hannah Braddock, was the mother of: Hannah (1784-1870) who married Charlottetown merchant Archibald McPhee; Elizabeth (1786-1848) who married Charlottetown lawyer Charles Binns, Sr.; Sarah (1787-1843) who married Elliot River miller John Crosby; Jemima (1789-1867) who married Elliot River farmer William Crosby Jr.; Richard (1790-c1877) Clarktown, Lot 37 farmer and miller who married Margaret Coffin; Anne (1791-1867) who married Charlottetown merchant/auctioneer William Hazard Gardiner; Jane (1793-1871) who married Charlottetown merchant Ewen Cameron; Samuel Johnson (1795-post 1813) who never married; Edmund Fanning (1797-1839) who married Jane Rogers and lived In North Esk, NB; Theophilus (1799-post 1813); Andrew (1801-1827) who never married; George (1804-1850) who married Elizabeth Bagnall and died in Portsmouth, NH; Archibald (1806-1901) who never married; and Charles (1809-1827) who never married. The questions that arise are: where did John Clark come from before arriving in Prince Edward Island? Who was his first wife? Who are his parents and brothers and sisters? Do the readers of Dave Hunters have any of the answers?

Captain Augustine C.

He is survived by his wife and three sons, Charles J. McDonald, Peter A. McDonald, attorney, of Portland, and Augustine M. McDonald, of Vancouver, Wash.

I recently came across the following death notice from the Examiner newspaper dated the 29 June 1882, page 3, column 1:

A privet letter conveys the sad intelligence that a young man from Rose Valley lot 67, was killed about two weeks ago while working on the C.P.R. by a stick falling on him. He had left some 18 months ago son of Donald MacLeod we sympathize with his parents and friends.

It is unfortunate that they did not name the person who died. Does anyone have any idea who this might have been? Or how I can find out?

The only Donald M*cLeod I know of that lived in Rose Valley at that time who was old enough was my GG Grandfather. He had two sons for whom I have no information beyond the 1881 census John b. 1856 and James b. 1861. However, they are both listed in the 1881 census and the notice says the fellow left 18 months ago which would have been before the census was taken. There are several possibilities, census error or departure date error. Any help greatly appreciated.

I was wondering if anyone can help me find out more information about Donald MacDonald of Allissary. He was born in Arisaig, Scotland in 1745 and emigrated to Prince Edward Island, settling in Allissary. I am researching my husband's family (family genealogy is new to me!) for an upcoming trip to Scotland.

I found a link form the Moidart Local History Group with a historical account from a Reverend R.B. MacDonald from the late 1800s that said Donald MacDonald of Allissary emigrated to PEI on the Brig Alexander. According to the Reverend's account Donald MacDonald of Allissary first settled at Portage (lived there for a year) before buying 500 acres at Allissary. There is one Donald MacDonald on the Brig Alexander who settled at Portage and his address is listed as Borrodale. I am assuming that this is the same Donald MacDonald.

I was wondering if anyone knew anything else about him? Did he come with his family (I believe he was married to a Jane MacDonald)? What was his occupation? The Reverend's account says he is from Arisaig, but the Brig Alexander lists his address as Borrodale. Which one is correct?

Thank you for any help you can provide.
(I apologize if these questions have been answered somewhere else in the Query book and I have neglected to find it)

I am a descendant of Captain Andrew Doyle, born about 1821 in County Wexford, Ireland. Married Eliza Gaddeys (name has several variants) in 1842. In the 1881 Census he was listed as Captain of the steam dredge "Prince Edward." He died 29 January 1896, in either Charlottetown or North Rustico. Do you have more information? Birthplace in Ireland? Parents? Details of immigration? Location of his grave? Or about his wife's family / origins?

From Charlottetown Guardian, July 13, 1916:

McDonald At County Line Road, July 9, 1916, Donald McDonald, age 93.

I believe this may be Donald McDonald who was married to Mary Finlayson and farmed at Belmont in Lot 16 until 1892. At that point they moved to Lot 27 and may have moved several more times. Two of their daughters, Mary and Katharine married brothers Thomas and Charlie Cairns, respectively; and daughter Annie married John Angus MacDonald of Mount Tryon.
Mary Finlayson McDonald died Jan. 22, 1927 at County Line Road, Queens County. Is this her husband? There is another County Line Road in Kings County along with several Donald McDonalds. The PEI Archives has no registered death. The age would correspond with my Donald.
Does anyone have a Donald McDonald with this death date in their tree that would prove or disprove?

Hi, looking for any information on my great great grandfather, Timothy O'Leary, born in PEI 1835. He arrived in NZ in 1861 and was an experienced gold miner by then. Established the Phoenix Dam Company to supply water for the diggings at Wetherstones and for the town of Lawrence, in Otago. Married 1862, had children and died here in 1900, on his mining claim near Hokitika. He stated on his marriage certificate that he was born in PEI 1835 so seems likely. Family first names include Joseph, Jeremiah, William, Thomas,Daniel, Francis,Jack, Ellen, Mary, Clare. Thanks!

I have been searching for my g. grandfather's root for sixteen years to no avail. Andrew Mcinnis, born PEI in the 1830's. It's funny how you overlook some data. His son, John Henry's birth certificate shows his mother as Ann Smith rather than his actual mother Ann McCafferty. It wasn't until my sister looked at the certificate which shows the attending doctor as Dr. Steven Smith. The handwriting of the Smith listed as the mother is exactly the same as the doctor's name. Also the birth certificate shows Andrew as being born in Scotland and his wife Ireland. Other documents say Ireland, so who knows . It befuddles me that it is so difficult to find information about McInnis, there were not that many in PEI in the beginning of the 1800's.

Peters (Annie)
This is a mystery which has been very difficult to solve but someone for sure has the answer. I am trying to locate a baptism or birth certificate for Annie Peters. I first came across Annie Peters (my great grandmother) in the Saint John Alms House Records which state she was born in PEI. In 1888, she married John Foster White from Yarmouth, NS. Her parents on her marriage certificate were Eusebe and Philomene? (difficult to read) Peters. Annie was the mother of three children - Margaret (Maggie) Watters born Feb 5th, 1888, Sophie White born April 3, 1889 and Howard White born Jan 9th, 1896.
All three children were put in the orphanage in Saint John, NB in 1904. According to St Vincent's Orphanage record which are no longer accessible,Maggie was taken to Worcester Mass. by the Sisters of Providence in May 1908.
I was able to locate the marriage of Eusebe Peters and and Philomene Aucoin (May 9th, 1871 at St. Anthony's in Bloomfield, PEI) in the Pitre Trail form Acadia by Wendy Pitre Roostan.
Here in lies the mystery. There is no Annie listed among their children. I believe Annie died in Somerville. Mass. USA in the year 1921. In a death certificate she is listed as Annie MacDonald spouse of William.
Someone with connections to the Pitre/Peters families in PEI might just have the documentation to support Annie Peters' marriage certificate that her parents are Eusebe Peters and Philomine Aucoin (Wedge).

MacPhee or MacDonald
Does anyone have information about 2 men (brothers?) probably born around the 1860s with the improbable names Cyrenus and Napoleon (MacPhee?). I'm not sure about the MacPhee part. My grandmother, Mary Ann MacDonald Macdonald, daughter of Angus Bernard MacDonald and Ellen MacPhee, used to tell me about her uncles, Cyrenus and Napoleon, who lived with HER grandmother "Daisy" (Margaret?). I always assumed MacPhee, but they could have been MacDonalds.

Martin was killed August 1, 1942 as part of a crew of a Wellington bomber shot down over Belgium. My uncle, Sgt. William Hall, was the pilot, and our family has been working with a group in Belgium who has found relics from the crash site. We are planning on erecting a memorial to the crew and would like to share this information with Sgt. Martin's family.

Subject: Documented information/references on James Fitzpatrick, my wife's GGGF.

Judith Anne Fitzpatrick, born August 10, 1941 is now Judith Bain. We plan to visit Ireland in the fall of 2015 to learn more about her Irish descendants, especially her GGGF, JAMES FITZPATRICK.

Judy's father was Jack Clinton Fitzpatrick. He was born in New Glasgow Nova Scotia on February 12, 1921 and he died in Truro NS on March 17, 2004. Jack married Sylvia English, who was born April 23, 1922 in Thorburn, Nova Scotia. She died February 27 in Truro, Nova Scotia.

Judy's GF was Frederick F. He was born in Prince Edward Island in on April 2, 1885, and died in New Glasgow on April 18, 1954. He married Lulu Florence Mac Dougell on August14, in Montreal, Canada. Lulu was born in Pictou NS. On June 16, 1896 and died in Truro NS in 1972.

Judy's GGF was Richard Fitzpatrick, who was born in PEI in 1840. He married Ellen Storey, who was born in St John NB in 1842 and died on January 30, 1889 in Cherry Valley PEI in Cherry Valley, Queens, PEI

Judy's GGGF WAS JAMES FITZPATRICK. He was born in 1810 in Portarlington, County (Queens) Laois, Ireland. He was married to Bridget Callaghan in 1839. She was born in Donagh County Monaghan, Ireland in 1811. Could Ricard have been born in Ireland.

James and Peter Fitzpatrick may have been brothers. When and where did they depart from in Ireland, and when and where did they arrive in Canada. May have left from Dublin " both brothers possibly came from CountY Cavan, where their aged mother was purported to have lived on April 5, 1834.

Is this detail sufficient to access the Fitzpatrick DNA Study. I understand from correspondence with Dr. Colleen Fitzpatrick that there was one Fitzpatrick couple in her DNA STUDY FROM PEI. We have no proper documentation on James Fitzpatrick, other than a Canadian census showing he and Bridget had a son Richard born in 1840.

Any proper evidence linking James, Bridget and Richard together would be greatly appreciated. I have only been doing geological research for 8 months, and Only joined the Fitzpatrick group a week ago. So recognize, I am on a large learning curve.

I am genetically related to Arsenaults from PEI. I was adopted by my mother's family and know there history quite well. My half-brothers have done their DNA tests and so the Arsenault connection is on my birth father's side (I did not know him and he died in the 1980s). From what I have been able to find out about him, he was adopted in Levis, Quebec, and 1 other very close genetic connection (he says the same thing that he is also genetically related to Arsenaults from PEI) and he himself was adopted in Quebec City (Levis is across the St. John). I found a Catholic orphanage in this area. I am wondering if anyone knows if people of PEI would send unmarried daughters off to Quebec to have their children or if daughters would go off to school in Quebec?

Benjamin Farrow and Mary Ann Ives
(2) William Farrow* m Emma Prosser (daughter of William Prosser and Esther Mary Mann) in Victoria, Australia in 1855
(3) Clara Helena Farrow m George Frederick Davis
(4) Eileen Adelaide Davis m Herbert Howard Bennett
(5) Peter Howard Bennett m Shirley Lorice Bennett
(6) Living
(7) Living - my brother
(2) James Graham FARROW m Alice PROSSER (Emma's sister) in Victoria, Australia in 1860
(3) 13 children

All the documents I have on (2) William Farrow state PEI, British North America or British Canada.

I would be interested in any information. I have noticed a few people have the FARROWs coming from the US. I am wondering if politically, it would have been better for them in another British Colony (Victoria, Australia) to identify themselves as born in British Canada, than America at that time?

Thanks for your thoughts and advice.

Hello, I am looking for any footprints my great grandfather mr Arnt S Vollum (born 1876) who lived in Charlottetown many years ago, and his wife mrs Ragna Vollum (born 1887) and son mr Sigurd Vollum (born 1911/1912) might have left. I believe that Arnt was a patient at the Beach Grove Inn in 1963. Arnt arrived in Halifax July 20th 1929, and his wife and kids a year later. They also had a daughter Klara Anette born 1928, who could be alive today, we belive that she settled in Montreal and married one Ben Matheson(?). Sigurd served for Canada during ww2, but we do not believe he ever got married or got any kids. Thanks!

The Passing of John A. M'Innis

A Pioneer Resident and an Honored Citizen Answers the Last Call

John A. McInnis, who died in this city Saturday night, was born in Prince Edwards Islands, Canada, March 4, 1839; took up his residence in Boston, Mass., in 1855; served as non-commissioned officer during the civil war, having joined the expedition under General W. T. Sherman, which left Handon Rose, Virginia, In October, 1862, for Port Royal, South Carolina.

Mr. McInnis was returned to headquarters at Washington, D.C., and remained there off duty till December, 1862. He then went under orders to Brooklyn, New York,and joined a command under Major A. C. Garland and proceeded by steamer for Mare Island navy yard. While en route from New York to Aspinwall on the passenger steamer Ariel, which was captured and made prisoner by the Confederate States warship Alabama (Captain Semmes), all the command were made prisoners of war, their arms, equipment and military stores being captured and taken on board the Alabama. Later a bond was signed to the captain of the Alabama and Mr. McInnis was permitted to proceed on his passage,and arrived at Mare Island December 28, 1862, and was thereupon detailed on service at San Francisco till 1864. After leaving the government service he was in charge of the naval canteen, Mare Island, for a number of years, and later engaged in the hardware and grocery business in Vallejo. The deceased served several terms as a member of the Vallejo fire department, and was at one time president of the Vallejo board of trade. He was one of our most reliable and substantial citizens and owned much property here. Farragut theater belongs to the estate. Mr. McInnis devoted much of his time to the upbuilding of Vallejo.

He belonged to the Grand Army of the Republic, the Elks, the Knights of Columbus, and St. Vincent's Benevolent society.

The deceased is survived by his wife and a number of sons and daughters.

The funeral will take place this morning at 9:30 o'clock from the family residence on Virginia street, thence to St. Vincent's church, where a requiem mass will be celebrated for the repose of his soul.

My wife Judith FITZPATRICK and I plan to visit Ireland during the 50 th year of our marriage in 2015. Our plan is to visit the place where Judy's direct descendants lived prior to immigrating to Canada. My grand father was Frederick FITZPATRICK. HE WAS BORN IN PEI IN 1887. He married Florence MAC DOUGALL ON AUGUST 14 in 1913 or 1914 in Monteal, Quebec. Frederick died in 1954 in New Glasgow. I believe his father was Richard FITZPATRICK, WHO WAS BORN IN 1840. Where? His wife was Ellen Storey, and may have died during Fredericksburg first 5 years of life, and then went to live with a relative. Who? Assuming Richard was born in PEI, who was his after and mother and did they immigrate from Ireland. Has any one completed a family tree that traces this lineage of FITPATRICKS back to Ireland and beyond? We would be very grateful if new information can be found to launch our journey to the British Isles.

I am the 3rd great granddaughter of Catherine Anderson who married Joseph Smith. Some say she was born in PEI, Canada; others have her born in England. She married Joseph Smith about 1786 in Charlottetown, Queens, PEI, Canada. I found a Baptism Index Card which shows her parents as Alexander Anderson and Christiana McWilliam. My question is: Are these the right parents? That card shows her birth as 7 Mar 1792 which puts her 31 years younger than her husband so I don't think she is the right Catherine Anderson. I have been unable to find another Catherine Anderson. Joseph Smith was christened 11 Aug 1761 in Derbyshire, England. Can anyone help me with the correct parents? THANKS

A break through using DNA!! Samuel Gould, Lot 27, and William Gould, Lot 26, in the 1841 PEI census, WERE brothers. A descendent of William and I, a descendent of Samuel, had our DNA tested and we matched as 4th cousins, sharing a common ggggrandfather. We had suspected that they were related and it had been suggested to me, but we could not find definite proof until the DNA tests confirmed it. This is very exciting!

Tracing great-great grandfather John MacKinnon from Lewes, PEI (East of Caledonia) back to Scotland.
Profile: farmer John MacKinnon, b: 1820 in PEI. Meacham shows a settlement date of 1821. Lovells 1871 directory lists only one John McKinnon in Caledonia. I believe his wife was Mary MacLean b: 25 Sep 1832, Scot. Their first 5 children were born in Canoe Cove between 1852-1860. The next five children were born in Middleton (Lewes) between 1863-1875.
Johns parents may have been Hugh MacKinnon, b: abt 1802, Scot and Isabella McNeil, born in PEI. Most of the Caledonia cemetery MacKinnons can be traced back to John & Mary but their burial site is unknown. Any John & Mary MacKinnon history or leads appreciated.

TRAINORS (of Monaghan)
I am looking for anybody who might have a connection to someone in Monaghan Ireland bearing the surname, Trainor. Thanks to some fine research done by Karen Forderer, Michael Costa, Ron Nelson and Reg G. Trainor, I am able to trace my paternal lineage all the way back to 1844, but, in the absence of ship lists, am not able to tie my gggrandfather Patrick Trainor or his wife, Mary, to the Consbrook or Agitator.
According to research done by Michael Costa, my family's "Patrick" is not the same Patrick who was son of Owen whose newspaper obit tied him to one of the two ships out of Belfast in 1839. Costa's research shows, however, there were, in fact, 14 Trainor families living on the island on or about that time, leaving me to wonder if others had come sooner and/or were from any of the other counties bordering Monaghan. I'm hoping someone in Monaghan or in any of its bordering counties is looking to find a similar connection to their Trainor ancestors so I can finally place our beloved Patrick in his proper place on the map of Ireland!

Can anyone supply the primary source of this information? We have found 2 items of information supporting Adams first wife as Eunice Crossman, daughter of Benjamin Crossman and Eunice Stark. She was also a sister of Benjamin Crossman Jr. who married Ann (Nancy) Cannon.
Item 1 - Baptism of daughter Mary Howitt (Mary Eunice) on December 26, 1824, Church of England, Richmond, PEI; born Aug. 12, 1812. Transcription gives mothers name as Eunice Cropman (Crossman).
On Dec. 6, 1824 (transcription error 26?), at the same location Benjamin Cropman (Crossman) and Ann Cannon baptized Elizabeth Eunice. She was likely named for her aunt and grandmother.
There are several Cropman entries in the Baptism Index which are Crossman.

Item 2 - The Charlottetown Guardian, January 23, 1907, page 7, Column 4. Death of Mrs. Edward Warren. His first wife was a Miss Crossman.

Eunice Crossman was born abt 1785 in Kings County, Nova Scotia
Does anyone have any information to further support or refute Eunice Crossman as Adams first wife.

There is ample evidence that William Mabon and Margaret Brown relocated to West Wheatland township Indiana County PA in 1794 from Scotland.

I have a large book of Prince Edward Island and it was made in 1800's. My mother pointed out different people in it. Something about Queens ...I dont know if that is a county.

Hello and thank you for a fantastic website.

This isn't a query, rather a tidbit of info' re: the ship *Polly*, 1841.

Family lore, oral and written, fits with that entry, which is tagged with a request for further input.

Here's what's known about my great-great-great-grandfather, Murdoch McKinlay, and wife Christy Anne Graham, who settled in PEI in 1841:

The McKinlays were Highlanders from the Isle of Skye. Murdoch McKinlay was born there in 1812, Christy Mary Graham in 1815.

They had two sons, Donald, born in about 1835, and Duncan, in 1837. In 1841, they emigrated to Canada. Donald sailed on a second ship with relatives of the Grahams and Munros.

A severe Atlantic storm landed their ship on Prince Edward Island, purportedly wrecked near or on shore. The storm separated them from son Donald's ship; he and relatives ended up in Australia, never to meet again.

Murdoch and Christy went to Charlottetown, and with no means to sail elsewhere, headed for Rose Valley to take up land in lot 67, near Breadalbane. They walked the 24 km, carrying their possessions, including Christy's spinning wheel.

The first clearing of the forested land was to build a log cabin. They stayed with a family named Ross while doing so.

So for what it's worth, this corroborates the anecdotal report made by another family.

With cheers for your good work, Brenda.

Looking for the family of Neil Ross, b. 1848/1849, PEI; d. ca. 1882, Audubon Co., Iowa, USA; m. Margaret "Maggie" MacDonald/McDonald, b. 1847/1848, PEI. Neil Ross was recorded in 1871, aged 22, in Nova Scotia in the household of Murdo Ross, but at the end of the household enumeration, along with John Ross, aged 20. It seems obvious that Neil and John were not the sons of Murdo (Murdoch?), as they were literate, and all of Murdo's family members (including another John) were not. Next record of Neil was in PEI in Kensington, in 1873, when his and Maggie's oldest son was christened; the record states they were residents of Clifton at the time (now the town of New London in Lot 21, Queens County.) Next record of Neil & Maggie was the 1880 census of Audubon Co., Iowa; Neil was a blacksmith.
The children of Neil & Margaret MacDonald Ross were: (1) William Leslie Ross, b. 1873, PEI; (2) Maude Ross, b. 1873, PEI (twins); Charles Alexander Ross, b. 1877, Iowa; and Anna May Ross, b. ca. 1880/1881. Neil's 1880 census record states that his father was born in Scotland, and his mother was born in PEI; Maggie's census record of the same year states that her father was born in CA (Canada), and that her mother was born in Scotland. I do not have a clue what happened to John Ross of the 1871 record(apparently Neil's younger brother?) Neil & Maggie have numerous American descendants. Can anyone help? Thanks so much! Pam

Halifax, NS CAN

I am researching my mother's side of the family. My great great-grandmother was a MacEachern and related to Hugh Bn MacEachern, b 1727,Ceann Loch Mideart, (Kinlochmoidart), Scotland, d 1804 Savage Harbour, PEI married Mary MacDonald 1729 1792 in 1742. The connection to Hugh Bn is unquestionable as in my grand-mother's house in Charlottetown in the 1950's were possessions of Hugh Bn's son Bishop Angus MacEachern.

However I cannot link my great grand-mother to a child of Hugh Bn or to a grand-son of Hugh Bn. I'm at a dead-end.

My grandmother was Catherine J. (or Florence) Handrahan (aka Katherine, Katie), b. 28 May 1897, d. 1929 aged 32, language English. 1901 census Kings Co., PEI - Lot#38 aged 7 but that should be 3 or 4 y/o. In the census her father is listed as Danice but it is obvious from the hand-writing that he was Daniel but was known as Donald Edward.

Catherine (Handrahan) O'Brien died in 1929. Wife of James Angus O'Brien of Charlottetown. She was related to Victor Handrahan whose son James Vernon was a baseball player in the USA and later a mailman in Ch'town in the 1980's.

Catherine's mother was a MacEachern and this is as far as I can get. Her information is as follows:


Daniel (says Danice) called Donald Edward) Handrahan (Hendriken?), b. PEI 1855, d.?, aged , language English, farmer, origin Irish. 1881 census Lot#38 26; 1901 Census Kings. Co., PEI- Lot#38 in 1901 census aged 45.

Mother is the one who I cannot connect to Hugh :

Helen or Helena K. (could be Helena x.?) McEachern, b. PEI 15 Aug. 1846, d.?, aged ?, language Gaelic Scot, origin Scottish. 1901 Census Kings. Co., PEI- Lot#38 in 1901 census says Helene F. aged 54.

Census says Catherine had the following siblings:

Daniel J. Handrahan, b. 23 June 1882, d. ? aged , language English. 1901 census Kings Co., PEI- Lot#38 in 1901 census aged 18.
Mary A. Handrahan, b. 3 Feb. 1884, d. ?, aged language English. 1901 census Kings Co., PEI - Lot#38 in 1901 census aged 17.
Eugene Handrahan, b. 17 June 1886, d. aged?, language English. 1901 census Kings Co., PEI- Lot#38 in 1901 census aged 14.

There seems to be an unrecorded sibling mentioned too:
Donald b. 1881

All very confusing but who were Helen-Helene-Helena's mother & father and grandmother & grandfather to connect with Hugh Bn et al?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as well as any infor on the Handrhan-Hendrikens.

I happened upon the island register website and noticed that some of the information you have on Bernice Rattray (daughter of 14. Annabelle (3) Yorston) is incorrect and incomplete. Bernice was my grandmother. Correct information:

Bernice: born May 23, 1892 and died October 26, 1964 in Medfield, Massachusetts. She married Winfred (not Wilfred ) Lee. After Winfred died, Bernice married John Edmund Robbins (April 16, 1888 {in Prince Edward Island} - June 20, 1959 {in Medfield}) on September 30, 1945 in Medfield, Massachusetts. John Edmund Robbins was the son of Daniel McKay Robbins and Catherine Ladner both of Prince Edward Island.

The information on Elsie Irene Rattray, also a daughter of Annabelle, is incorrect too. After speaking with her children I can provide you with the correct information, if you desire.

I would very much like to know more about my great-great-great-grandmother, Mary Williams Brecken, the fourth child of Ralph and Matilda Brecken, who was born in Charlottetown PEI 14 Feb 1803, married Henry Lewis there on 20 Dec 1827 and died 16 Jan 1882 in Kinsale Cork. In particular, I would like to know when she and Henry departed PEI for Ireland, what Henry did for a living (we suspect that he was a soldier but have no evidence), how he was regarded by the Brecken family, and whether there were any subsequent visits by Mary or her children to her birthplace. The profile I have constructed for Mary on my public family tree is readily available for access. It was only last year that I and another Lewis family researcher discovered that the forebear we'd thought of as Mary Brecon was Mary Brecken of PEI; we would be very grateful for any details about her that others would be willing to pass on.

Hello, I'm trying to trace my grandmother's people. Her grandmother, Mary Davey, died when my grandmother's mother (Isobel Hayden) was only eight months old. The children were farmed out to relatives and friends. Isobel was raised by Hector and Rhoda Penny and many thought she was a Penny. Her brother Henry Fletcher Hayden and sister Emmeline Hayden stayed with Thomas and Louisa Davey (see 1891 PEI census). Another brother, Seymore went to Charles Brehaut's family and little John went with the Critchens. I'm not sure what happened to their older sister Lydia. Any help would be greatly appreciated. There was rumor that Mary Davey's father was the eldest daughter of William L. Davey but I cannot find such reference. Mary married John Hayden. Thank you for your time, Wilna

Ronald MCDONALD and Catherine MCINNIS
So having discovered that Archibald MACDONALD was NOT the immigrant ancestor, but was born on Prince Edward Island (the second time I've had to move the immigrant ancestor back a generation) I promptly did a search for an Archibald born 1795 on PEI, not expecting to find anything. Lo and behold, there is one. Not only that but a whole little family of MACDONALDs. Too easy right?
Ronald MCDONALD and Catherine MCINNIS had the following children:
Neil MCDONALD b. January 11, 1793
Archibald MCDONALD b. January 13, 1795
Margaret MCDONALD b. November 14, 1796
Alexander MCDONALD b. March 15, 1799
All entries for St Paul's in Charlottetown
Archibald and Ronald are repetitive names in my MacDonald line. Then I recalled a paragraph from the book "Malpeque and Its People" about a Ronald that didn't fit in chronologically with my line at that time.
... An interesting item regarding the use of or inability to use such tokens in the Malpeque area reads as follow: Quote "Oyster Cove, 31st July, 1815"
The Declaration of Katherine McDonald to be delivered before the Kirk Session of Malpeque anent the affair between M. McKay and Hugh McLeod. Viz: 'Upon Saturday before the Sacrament in June, 1814, Hugh McLeod said to his wife in my hearing that he was without a token that day - his wife asked for what reason, he answered, for selling a pig on the Sabbath day, and for frequenting Moorfields Bresnor's houses on the Sabbath, and also for assisting Ronald McDonald's children in saving themselves and the boat, and not going to church that evening.
He then told his wife to go home along with me and that he would attend the Session along with the witnesses that saw the boat in distress, namely: William Donalds, James Brander and William McNeil, who said that himself would go and do the same, if McLeod did not assist.
Witnesses: Dougald Stewart, Jr; Ronald MacDonald, David McGregor
Katherine X McDonald

So we have a Katherine and a Ronald with kids that fit in chronologically.
Still too easy.

Hoping that some one has some information on this early PEI MACDONALD family that will shed some light on if I have a connection here.

Thanks everybody,

Archibald MACDONALD mar. Nancy CHAMPION and had the following children:
Ronald b. 1833, PEI mar. Margaret SUDSBURY b. May 5, 1839, PEI on March 14,1861
Mary b.1844, PEI mar. Alphonso GILMAN, b.Feb 3,1840,in Maine,USA on Sep 11,1866
Agnes b. 1851, PEI, mar. Wm Harry DUNBAR b Sep 22,1843 Scotland on Mar 3, 1871.
Margaret b. Aug 1855 mar 1st William COOK b 1846, PEI; 2nd George A COUGHLAN on Nov 18, 1886 on PEI and 3rd William G LUNT in Maine.
William b. 1858 PEI mar. Jane ADAMS of Hamilton, PEI
There is believed to be another son Hugh, possible born 1840-1845 and per the 1861 Census possibly another sister born between 1845-1856 (probably earlier end of that period).

Nancy CHAMPION MACDONALD is a daughter of John CHAMPION and Barbara WARREN
There is an Agnes MACDONALD enumerated with William and Jane MACDONALD, Lot 18 in both the 1881 and 1891 Cenusus. Because Agnes shows up in these census' and also shows up as a witness to several events, I believe this is Nancy CHAMPION MACDONALD. In 1891 she also lists her father's birthplace as Newfoundland, which is consistent with several of her CHAMPION siblings. In 1881 she shows as married with no spouse listed and in 1891 she is widowed.
Recently I believe I have found Archibald MACDONALD living with his daughter Margaret MACDONALD COUGHLAN and her family in Lot 20, 1881 Census. He is listed as married with no spouse showing.

So does anyone have any death or cemetery information for an Agnes MACDONALD born about 1809 on PEI and passing away after 1891 in the Lot 18/20 area and Archibald MACDONALD born about 1795 (on PEI!) passing away between 1881 and 1891?
Of course any other information is welcome!

I am tracing my wife's family tree and have gone back to PEI with her GGF Terence Curran born 1837 to James Curren and Mary McIsaac. This was gleaned from his death certificate.
From the PEI online database he seems to have had at least 3 sisters Sarah(1839), Maryan(1842) and Isabella(1844). Their surname was spelt Curren.

Terence arrived in Australia on the Africana in 1866 (from Liverpool) which I believe is about the same time PEI was being handed over to Canada and when we were having our gold rushes in Australia.
It is possible I suppose that the family moved back to Ireland/England but I cannot find any records thus far.
Would anyone have any information on where the family went to and/or where the parents came from before arriving in PEI?
Thank you

I am researching the Wood and Guard families who emigrated from PEI to Alberta in about March 1904. I am looking for ancestors and other relatives for:
John Philip Wood (born c1832) married Mary L MacEachern (born c1852).
Thomas Frederick Guard (b c1858) married Rhoda Matilda Wood (born c1861).
George Wallace Wood (son of John & Mary; born c1876) married Rhoda Sara(h) Guard (daughter of Thomas & Rhoda; born c1888) at Innisfail, Alberta in 1904.
Any information on these families would be greatly appreciated. I have searched through the surnames on Island Register and found the Wood family in question but cannot track down anything about the Guard family.

Yesterday I visited a distant relative and did 3.5 hours of scanning of pre-1900 PEI photos through 1940 Saskatchewan / Alberta photos. Happily, I got a bunch of Kinch photos. There were a bunch of Skerry / Skurry photos in the box as well - none labeled. (Josephine Skerry married William Bennett Kinch on 14 Jan 1913 in Puisville, PEI before the couple moved west.) I was so busy with my Kinch photos that I didn't do the others & the owner of the photos (Jossie's grand daughter) is planning to dispose of them ... HOWEVER I am returning to see her in 6 weeks. If someone is searching the Skerry/Skurry family I could scan them at that time. Hopefully, someone from the family will see this in time for them to be repatriated. Cheers, Jan

I visited the Green Park Shipbuilding Museum and Yeo House in the Port Hill area last week while visiting PEI. At the museum, there was a large store log book from the Yeo Store in Port Hill, which supposedly was one of the largest stores in the county in the 1800's. The book was in a cabinet under glass so could not be examined. It was open to a page from 1846 showing transactions of that time period. Does anyone know if the pages of this book have been scanned and digitized? Does anybody know of anyone who would have access to examining this book to see if there is any mention of THOMAS HECKBERT? Thomas Heckbert's name was found in a Port Hill Poll Book voter's list from 1848 so he must have lived in the Port Hill area and likely purchased items from the Yeo Store at that time.

Since Heckbert is not a common name, there is a good chance that Thomas Heckbert would be related to my GGG grandfather John Heckbert who settled in Lot 17 Summerside in 1842. However, I have never come across mention of a Thomas Heckbert in my family history with the exception of this Port Hill voters list reference. I've searched census records, church records, etc. with no luck in finding any reference to a Thomas Heckbert in that time period on the Island.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

I came across a record showing a THOMAS HECKBERT on a voters list in a Port Hill Poll Book, dated 07 July 1848. The reference was found at the Archives in Charlottetown on an index card, but the Archives does not have a copy of that Port Hill Poll Book and staff there suggested it likely was in the possession of a community museum, a local historical society or perhaps was part of a personal historical collection. Does anyone know where a copy of the Port Hill Poll Book for 1848 might be found? I would love to see a copy of it to confirm that the surname on that list was indeed Heckbert (and not Hibbert, Hebert, etc.).

A small discovery for the Glenaladale Mac's. I found the following article written by my Great Aunt - Anna(Louise)Sprague MacDonald b.1875 Charlestown, MA. Anna was daughter of Dr. James A. MacDonald b. 1842 Charlottetown, d. 1910 Charlestown MA., and Anna Sarah Sprague 1846-1916 MA.

The introduction to the article was interesting.


"Entreating that you will all give yourselves to God, for to Him we must all at last have recourse, I leave you my blessing."

[About sixty-seven years ago, being just able to read with some ease, my eyes scanned the above words of Captain John MacDonald of Glenaladale's "Last instructions to his children." The memory of these words has since served as a light in the many darksome days of life. Having recently found the original instructions, and the Captain's letter or memorandum to his daughter Flora, I was so overjoyed at my fortune that I resolved to edit them; and this not merely as a tribute to the author, but still more from the conviction that 'Words of life never fall without being taken up by some one." To the forcible and graceful pen of Miss Anna MacDonald, one of the clan, and who with her parents, Dr. and Mrs. MacDonald, of Charlestown, Mass., visited the ancestral Highland home of the late Glenaladale, while on their European tour last year, I leave the task of presenting to the public a sketch of the life of the author and these letters.AN AGED CLANSMAN.]

LAST year there came into the possession of one of the descendants of Captain MacDonald, a letter, so interesting and so instructive, that it was thought a pity to keep it hidden among family papers. Then, too, its publication would give to the Catholics of the United States and of Canada a chance to know something more of one whose deeds place him among the heroes of the Church in the New World.

Who is the Aged Clansman?? Article was published in The Messenger, Vol 37 in 1902. Could he be a family member they met in Scotland, or someone living in Charlestown, Ma. ?

My GGAunt is very interesting - was involved in early NYC off Broadway Theater -the Neighborhood Playhouse in the lower East side, part of the Henry Street Settlement. She mostly translated plays from the ancient (and often religious) French, German plays.
