Surnames: CONNORS, HEFFERNAN, HALL, YOUNG
NOTE: County: Cape Breton
Qrytext: Is there anyone doing research on the Connors from Low Point, Cape Breton. As far as we can tell, Bartholomew Conners (ors) immigrated from Ireland in 1816 (we do not know the County in Ireland). He was granted land at Low Point, Cape Breton. Bart married Mary Frances Gavin and had a number of children. Michael, born 1824, Joseph born 1826, Mary Ann (married Patrick Murphy) born 1827, a daughter Bridget who married John Landrigan in 1856. There were other children names unknown as of yet! We are particularly interested in his son Michael Connors who married Mary Ann Hall born 1831. They were married Feb. 20, 1855 and had 7 children. Joseph (my husband's great grandfather, who married Margaret Heffernan; Bart who married Anne Rabbit, Bart was born in 1857, Mary born 1861; Elizabeth, born 1863; Ann born 1865; John, born 1868 and Michael, born 1870. I would greatly appreciate any information on any of these people. Fran

NOTE: County: Richmond
Qrytext: OBITUARY: The North Sydney Hearld 30 Nov 1881: Mr. John Nicholson of Sporting Mountain. Died 14 Nov 1881. Born Loch Atoll, Rosshire, Scotland 1805. Came to Cape Breton with his father in the Brig "St. Nicholas", landing in St. Peter's in 1820 and settled at East of West Bay, then known as St. George's Channel. He is survived by his wife Jemima MacKay. They were married in 1826 by the celebrated Mr. McDonald, the first Presbyterian Minister who visited that part of the county. Mr. Nicholson sold his farm at West Bay and moved to Sporting Mountain about 30 years ago. He was for many years an elder of the Presbyterian Congregation at West Bay.

Qrytext: Need some help locating information on Angus McGinnis/McInnis seems to be spelled both ways. This is what I do know, Angus married Annie (McCaloren sp?)I know they had a son Alexander D. McGinnis/McInnis which married my great great grandmother Lavinia Embree. They were married in Amherst, 7 Jan 1883, Alexander D. McInnes was 28 and this was Lavinia second marriage she was 38. Alexander was born in 1854 in Cape Breton, NS died 1921. He was a farmer and he was also a Catholic and was living in Roslin, River Philip. Lavinia was Wesleyan, then Catholic. Alexander and Lavinia are buried in Pine Grove Cemetery, Oxford, NS. I cannot find any information on his parents Augus and Annie other then their names and that they lived in Cape Breton. Since Alex was a Catholic this might help be discover more information about his parents and what origin they were( Scottish, Irish). Any help would be appreciated since I'm at a dead end on this side of my family tree T. Pellow

There is also an Archie and Mary (whose last name is supposed to be MacDonald) who had children: Katherine married to Malcolm Munroe; Alexis married to Alexander Munroe; James, unmarried; a daughter married to a Bagnell; perhaps one or two others. Is this the same Archie and Mary MacInnis since her last name comes from family sources? Also looking for information on Malcolm MacInnis (1819- 1901) also of Kennington Cove who married Elizabeth MacInnis/MacIsaac [last name comes from two different sources] (1841-1936) .
