Surnames: MORRISON
NOTE: County: Cape Breton
Qrytext: I'm searching for information regarding my biological grandmother. I know very little about her. Her name is Margaret Morrison and she was born in Cape Breton Island. At some point she came to Massachusetts, and had a son(my father) at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital on March 30, 1916. The father was listed on the birth certificate as Ralph Smith, a farmer in Saugus, Massachusetts. The son, my father, was raised in Saugus, Massachusetts by Fred Corson on Vine Street. My father's name was Paul Corson. On his birth certificate he was listed as Baby Smith. There is a picture of my father, as a very small boy, with Margaret Morrison. So, she was with him for at least a little while after his birth. But, then there is no other information. She may have died(although no death record could be found for her in Massachusetts), or have left him for some reason and gone back to Cape Breton. This is a shot in the dark, but I'm hoping someone, somewhere, may know something about this story, or have some information. Since my father was born in 1916, Margaret may have been born around the turn of the century, or earlier. Saugus, the town which is listed as the father's residence, is just North of Boston, and next to Lynn, Massachusetts. Thanks to anyone who knows anything about this, Sincerely, Marilyn Cleveland

His father is listed as "Daniel McDonald" and mother "Kate McInnis". A family living in St. Peter's, Richmond County, in the 1871 census is a possibility. Philip immigrated to Gloucester MA in 1878. Capt of the Martha and Susan, he was lost at sea in 1894. Thanks so much for any help!
