NOTE: County:
Qrytext: Having quite a difficult time with the "mishmash" of names being changed etc. Grandfather was Hugh (Bush) Bushor b) 1913 married Jessie Kernick b) 1914 in Sydney Mines,Cape Breton.(Rumour has it that someone in Hugh's family changed the name from Bouchard or Boucher to Bushor because everyone had such a difficult time trying to spell it and pronounce it). Hugh's father was Samuel Bushor b) July 19, 1894 d) April 10, 1952 Jessie's father was Jack (John) Kernick b) 1894? who married Mary Burton b) 1894? Samuel Bushor b) July 19, 1894 married March 10, 1913 to Margaret MacGillivray b) Sept 3, 1895, d) Sept 11, 1957. Margaret was born/baptised at New Glasgow, Saint John The Baptist Parish (I have birth certificate). Margarets parents were John MacGillivray b) 1878? and Catherine MacKinnon b) 1878?. Margaret's Godparents were Mr & Mrs John Dunn. Samuel's parents are listed as Joseph Bushor? b) about 1878? and Eliza Jessome b) about 1878? Joseph & Eliza had the following children (children's names appear on the list from Immaculate Conception Parish as well - I am typing this EXACTLY as it is written on the document I have from the Parish): Catherine Bushor b) Feb 9, 1896 Rachel Bushor b) Oct 11, 1898 (Leo & Charlotte Jessome were Godparents) Mary Alice Bushor b) April 22, 1900 Isaac Seward (Sevard?) Bushor b) July 9, 1901 Henrietta Bouchard b) August 2, 1902 Mary Magdalene Bouchard b) November 7, 1903 Beside the names of Henrietta & Mary Magdalene, parents names are actually written as Joseph Bouchard & Eliza Jessome. The other children had just the names Joseph B. & Eliza B. written next to them. A gravestone at St. Joseph's Cemetery (Little Bras d'Or) reads exactly as follows (re: the above children): Joseph & Elizabeth Bushor (beloved mother & father) Side #1 of headstone: Patrick F. Bushor d) Oct 18, 1912 age 20, beloved son of Joseph & Elizabeth Side #2 of headstone: John Joseph born August 31, 1893 died August 31, 1893 Catherine died 1896 Eathe May died October 20, 1897 age 4 months Rachel died April 3, 1900 age 1 year 7 months Mary Alice died July 17, 1900 age 3 months Isaac Seward died August 18, 1901 age 1 month, 6 days Henry-etta died August 17, 1902 age 2 weeks I also have a document that reads exactly as follows: Date & place of marriage: Sydney Mines, July 23, 1874 How married; by license or banns} by Siansr (?) Full name of groom: Samuel Bashore (that's how it looks!) His age: 24 years Condition: bachelor Profession/trade: Miner Residence: Sydney Mines Where born: Bras d'Or Parent's names: Morris & Rachel Their profession: Miner Full name of bride: Annie Edwards Age: 26 years Condition: Spinster Her place of residence: Sydney Mines Parents names: Alexander & Mary Ann Their profession: Carpenter Witnesses names: Joseph Boultrore?

(again, difficult to read, first part of name is correct Bush) Officiating clergyman: W H Jameson Denomination of Clergyman: Church of England Also on the document from Immaculate Conception Parish (top of the list!) is the name Maurice Bouchard b) September 25, 1887. His parents are listed as Maurice B. & Mary MacMullin. Reverend C F MacKinnon baptized all of the above. Whew! If anyone can please help me in any way at all I would be eternally greatful. If I can be of help to anyone it would be my pleasure to do so. My e-mail is: bambibushor@aol.com God bless and peace be with you.

Qrytext: Hazel E. Rogers, born circa 1889 in Moncton, NB, the daughter of Joseph H. Rogers and Avola Crandall. On 23 January 1912, she was married at Moncton to Charles M. Muggah (parents unknown). By 1946, and still in 1957, she (or they) were residing in Sydney, according to the obits for Hazel's parents. From these obits, Hazel and Charles had at least one child, a son Roger. There was possibly also a daughter who married a Victor Cook, but I am not certain about this. I am currently working on the Rogers side of this family - Hazel's ancestry and relatives. I would like to be able to gather some more information on this particular branch. Therefore, I would greatly appreciate any assistance that can be provided on Charles M. and Hazel E. (Rogers) Muggah and their descendants. Thanks in advance, Dan MacDonald brikwall@nbnet.nb.ca (PS - Queries I post to NS sites and mailing lists always seem to garner more attention for my own surname rather than the people I have actually posted the query about :-). So...unfortunately...and to save everyone a little bit of time...I regret to inform all that I am neither researching the MacDonald surname nor do I have any known Cape Breton connections.)

NOTE: County: Inverness
Qrytext: I am looking for information about my great grandfather. The following is the only information that I have. Does anyone recognize this information, or have any clues as to where I can look? Thank you Carol rsgabriel@shaw.ca Michael ROSS, born? died? buried in Inverness Nova Scotia beside his wife. He married Catherina ROACH, when? Their children could have been Evelyn ROSS, born ?, Carolyn ROSS, born ?, Mitchell ROSS, born ? and, my grandfather, Alexander Mitchell Ross, born June 25, 1910, in Inverness Nova Scotia. Alexander married Mary Margueite CARON, on November 08, 1941, in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. The story that was told by my grand father was as follows, the family was from another country, possibly Polland, or Scotland, we were never told for sure. They came to America between 1910 and 1915 to get away from the war. They landed in one of two spots, either New York, USA or Inverness Nova Scotia, Canada. From there they went to North Dakota where, we aren't sure but I think that Michael's parents, who could have been traveling with them, remained behind in North Dakota, as the rest of the family went on to North Battleford Saskatchwan. The family were home steading NORTH of North Battleford. And they had horses and cattle on their property. Grandpa Ross was around the age of 7 when he lived in North Battleford. He left home at the age of 15 or 16 never to return or talk to his family again. He travelled all over North Amercia, and he even faught in the Spanish Civil War. Any information in locating this family would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and help. Carol

Qrytext: My greatgrandfather was Neil"long"Mc/MacNeil and my grandfather was Jim"Neil Long" who lived on the "Irish Farm" in Brookvillage, Inverness county. His brother John lived on the "Peter Dwyer" farm. I was looking up some researching material and noticed a genealogy resorce for the Mabou area having a home address as the "MacFarlane Farm". Would these "farms" still be in existance today? The 1901 cesus for Glencoe has the MacNeil's, Neil, John, Ronald, Mary L., and and adopted daughter Mary B.Whitehead.Would I be able to use these "farm" references when asking for info from the "Bridge" or the Beaton Center? Any clues greatly appreciated. Neil Sutherland Calgary, Alberta.
