Qrytext: Two years ago I made my first trip to Cape Breton with my brother. Our father who is long past now, was born in North Sydney. We had wondered all our lives about CAPE BRETON NOVA SCOTIA. We drove to Purvis & Cottage and saw the house he grew up in, which looked onto Sydney Harbour. We took pictures of us standing on the steps of the house my father grew up in. We went to Brookside cemetery to see my grandfathers(Thomas J. Brown) grave. We drove to New Waterford and took pictures at the Low Point Lighthouse. Finally we drove around Cape Breton Island, which was breath taking. I left a little piece of my heart in Cape Breton. I can thoroughly understand why everyone had such fond memories, it's been a pleasure reading all the wonderful stories, and has helped me to get a clearer picture of my fathers life as he was growing up.

Qrytext: Hi: I am ran across the Hillsborough, Inverness County, District #5. In early times in the early and mid 1800s there was a lane of travel from the Margaree and Broad Cove up the South River across Lake Ainslie in a small row boats or canoes up the Hays River to Mount Young, and thence to Mabou and Port Hood all in the counties of Inverness, Nova Scotia. There were two MacEachen home at Mount Young where is was a special stop places for the weary travelling Gaels of the North. The two widows were distingelished by the phrases "the big widow" and "the little widow"; the former being the widow of John, the latter that of Angus. Many were the weary pedestrians who found rest, food, shelter and plenty welcome in those widowed home of Mabou Heights. The reason why I put this in the queary is because I am searching for cemeteries between Lake Ainslie and Hillsborough. I was told by someone that there was a cemetery on the Old Margaree Road and that Andrew Moore was buried in one of these cemetery. Would anyone know or have hear of anyone doing research on cemeteries around these area. If, so, please let me know what you may come up with. Would be very graceful for any help you may come across.

Qrytext: Hi: I am doing genealogy of my Great, great grandmother, Jane "Janet" MacQuarrie who married my Great, great grandfather, pioneer Andrew Moore, b. ca 1796 Fifeshire, Scotland, d. ca 1870 in Mabou, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. I was told that Janet father was Hector MacQuarrie either from Cape Breton or Pictou County. I have the Census of the Inhabitants of the District of Pictou-1817: P. 30, 5369-5554 Scotch Hill [Scots Hill]: near North Shore on road leading from West River to River John, Pictou County, Nova Scotia. MACQUARRIE Allan, Hector, Hector, Hector, John, Alexander, Lauchlin & Malcolm. Lauchlin MacQuarrie of Ulva, Scotland, 16th and last chief of the clan. He came to Pictou County, Nova Scotia with three sons and two daughters: Angus, Allan, Neil were the three sons; one of the daughter was Marion married to Hector MacQuarrie of the Western Shore, Cape Breton. Would any one out there have any knowledge or are doing genealogy of the MacQuarries clan in Pictou County and Cape Breton? Could there be any descendants of that Hector & Marion (MacQuarrie) MacQuarrie and would Janet be there daughter? In 1818, there were also three Hector MacQuarrie in Cape Breton. One on the Western Shore, one in Lake Ainslie, Inverness County, Cape Breton and one in Port Hastings, Inverness County, Nova Scotia. Sure would appreciated any information regarding these MacQUarrie. All I want is just to know who Janet Parents are, so I know where I can branch out to my next ancestors from that line. Thank you.

I was told that Mary was a daughter of Charles & Sarah MacLean of Whale Cove, Margaree Harbour, Inverness County, Cape Breton. I am not sure as I have the right Mary! In my research, I came across a Mary Ann MacLean, born 12 January 1849, died 28 September 1871, age 22 & is buried in Calvin United Church Cemetery at Whale Cove, Margaree Harbour, Inverness County, Cape Breton. She was a daughter of John & Catherine MacLean. The date sound right as my grandfather Edward Andrew Moore was born 31 March 1869 & is buried in the Old Pioneer Cemetery, at Pleasant Bay, Inverness County, Cape Breton. Grandpa was just a baby or child when his mother died. Could anyone tell me as I have the right Mary & as I do, why would she be buried in Whale Cove, unless she very sick & needed to be care for. It would be nice to find out as I have the right Mary & the right date of birth & death. I sure would appreciated as someone have the right information, so I could put is in my Family Tree Book.

She died in the mid 1950's in boston mass. There seem to be many Jessie Mac Donalds at the time up to this point the John Willie connection has proved fruitless.

My sister was born and adopted in 1953 - in Toronto, Ontario - but we're thinking that there might still be family members in the area that can help us. There are two different spellings mentioned on legal documents so we are not sure if the spelling of the surname is "Baggley" or Baggly" - her given names are 'Karen Elizabeth'. We would be grateful for any information you can send us (addresses, phone numbers) so that we may continue our search for locating her family. Thank you in advance, Leslie Wait and now known as, Janice Irwin (604) 942-3542

Surnames: Nesbitt / Nisbett
NOTE: County: Cape Breton
Qrytext: I am looking for information on 3 Nesbit / Nesbitt brothers - William, Robert and John - who came from Aberdeen (maybe just sailed from there) to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia in 1820. One of these men is my ggg grandfather. William started building ships for Archibald and Company in Sydney Cape Breton in 1829 and became a well known shipwright building ships all over Cape Breton. He was commissioned for most of the Archibald ships. William's nephew, Andrew also built ships and William's son, John also joined them in this occupation. One would think that since William was so well known as a shipwright there would be something on him. William was born 1803 and died 1877. Any help or information will be GREATLY appreciated.

Some went to Antigonish and some to Port Hood, but that's all I have been able to get - census info makes me think Donalds father was Iain and that he died before 1837 as it shows a Mrs. John McEachern living near Donald.

Surnames: MCDONALD, WHYNACHT
NOTE: County: Cape Breton
Qrytext: Liverpool Advance July 3rd 1941 - MCDONALD - "At Robinson's Nursing Home on June 25th to Mrs. and the late Alex McDonald, Sydney, a son 7.5 pounds". It was late winter of 1941 when a lady by the name of Mary McDonald showed up in Liverpool, Queens County, Nova Scotia. She appeared to be in her early twenties at the time. She had black hair, blue eyes, and a very intense laugh. She was almost in tears each time she laughed. We don't believe she had any older children nor did she ever mention anything about having any other children. It was said that she was from Cape Breton. No one ever found out what her maiden was. It was said that she worked as a nurse. She was several months pregnant and she said her husband died of tuberculoses. She said she had two or three sisters and a brother who was a priest in Cape Breton. She was a Catholic so she went to the parish priest and asked him if he knew of a place where she could stay. The name of the priest at St. Gregory's Parish at that time was Father Thomas Delaney and he was the same priest who would perform the wedding for my parents 25 years later. He knew of a lady named Mary Whynacht who took in boarders because Mary was also a Catholic and attended the church on a regular basis. Mary Whynacht's son Hughey and his wife Kathleen often visited her and they met Mary McDonald during one of the visits. Through conversing with her, they found out she was expecting a baby shortly and that the father of her baby had died. When Mary McDonald gave birth to her son, she named him George Byron McDonald. Mary said that she could not take her baby back to Cape Breton with her cause there was a story about some contagious disease in the family. She had asked Hughey and Kathleen if they could take care of her baby at their home in Sandy Cove and she would send money every month to help pay for his care. This continued for several months but eventually she stopped sending them money every month. Since Hughey and Kathleen were taking care of the baby for several months now, they were growing very attached to him and wanted to keep him and raise him as their own son. One day Kathleen received a letter in the mail from Mary McDonald and Kathleen got very upset and thought that Mary was coming back for her son. As it turned out Mary wanted to know if Hughey and Kathleen would adopt her son. They did and it was a private adoption between the two parties. Hughey and Kathleen were going to rename him but Hughey's mother Mary Whynacht, convinced them not to. My father was placed with Hughey and Kathleen on July 15, 1941 and the adoption order was granted on November 26, 1942. My father believes he may have seen his biological mother on a few occasions during the 1950's when he was working at the old Irving Oil gas station in Mill Village when Jordan Baker was running it. She was quite friendly with him but she never said that she was his mother. He thinks she re-married and was living in Halifax during the 1960's. We don't know what the name of her second husband was if she did re-marry. We're not sure if she's still alive. There has yet to be any type of official contact between my father and any member of his biological family. If anyone has any information about this or any tips on how to conduct a search, I'd be happy to hear from them.

Qrytext: Hi, Well, I guess this is really strange. My grandfather's headstone says "Lawrence J LeBlanc" (http://archives.gnb.ca/APPS/NBCemeteries/Details.aspx?L=EN&Key=46634). It seems that his family knew him as Lawrence but his regiment number lists him as Laurent Leon LeBlanc (http://data2.archives.ca/cef/gpc009/459273a.gif). Did a quick search and came up with this: http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi- bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=tleblanc&id=I0503. The Laurent LeBlanc listed here matches the information that is listed on the Archives.ca website. I definitely will have to check with other relatives (especially the older ones) to see if they know anything. When I talked to my father, he did not know any of his father's relatives (or even the names of them). I wonder how Laurent ended up in Minto, New Brunswick when it seems the rest of the relatives stayed in Margaree, Nova Scotia? Maybe his marriage certificate might shed some light on this - was probably married in the early/mid 1920's (my father was born in 1935, his oldest brother is 10 years older). I don't believe my grandmother is from originally from Minto (http://archives.gnb.ca/APPS/NBCemeteries/Details.aspx?L=EN&Key=46635). Would anyone have any more details on the children of Laurent and Marie- Anne LeBlanc (http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi- bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=tleblanc&id=I0503)? Back to the drawing board. :-) Jerry LeBlanc jerry.leblanc@rogers.com

NOTE: County:
Qrytext: I am visiting Cape Breton for a few days in October and would like to find the home where my father was brought up, and meet anyone who knew of the family. The postal address was RR#1 River Denys Station, Inverness County. His name was Alfred Dudley Cotterill. He was sent from England with his older brother, from an Emigration home in Birmingham, England in 1916. He was adopted by a farming family at the address above. Their name was MacIntyre. His adopted mother was, I believe, called Sarah Bell before her marriage. I am not sure about her husbands name. They had one son of their own who was called Archie Donald MacIntyre, who ran the farm after their death. Their mother died in the late 1940's. Their father had died earlier. My father's brother didn't stay in Canada, but my Dad stayed until the second world war when he joined the Canadian Army. He came to England and married my mother, Lillian. I was born in 1943 and named after someone from his home called Barbara. He said ahe was a cousin, and spoke fondly of her. I have twin sisters, Sandra and Sheila who were born in 1947. My Dad returned to Nova Scotia when he was discharged from the army in Sydney, NS, on 17th October 1941. It was always his intention to take us all back to his home, but it never happened. Archie continued to farm and to write to us, until he was shot sometime in the 1950's, in some sort of dispute at the farm. I would apprecite any help in locating the farm and anyone who knows anything about the family.

Joseph's parents were Joseph EDWARDS and Mary Ann (unknown), Flora's parents were Neil MCDOUGAL and Christie MCCUISH, it seems that Joseph EDWARDS jr and Flora MCDOUGAL were both born in Little Bras D'Or between 1850 and 1854. My puzzle now is ... what happened to Joseph & Flora, that they don't appear on the 1891 census and their two youngest children Alec and Joseph end up 25 miles away living with different families? Alec was with the MACDONALD's and Joseph with two KENNEDY sisters, Mrs MACDONALD was nee KENNEDY and was sister to the other two, however, I cannot find another KENNEDY connection to the EDWARDS'. The three older EDWARDS childern Mary Ann, Margaret Jane and Florence all but disappear, one of them may have gone to the USA and may have worked on one of the ASTOR estates (family story).

However, recently I have found several documents dating from 1844 to 1852 and all list Donald's name as "Daniel." There can be no possibility that two different persons are being named. There are too many correlations. 1. What are the sources used by A.D. MacDonald for Mabou Pioneers? Are they Cape Breton sources? How might I go about finding them? 2. Were Cape Breton Islanders of Highland descent in the habit of using non-gaelic names amongst non-gaelic speakers in the mid 19th century? Was Daniel a common substitution for Donald? I'd appreciate any help.

Qrytext: My sister and I have started to try and follow and create a family tree as the people are really starting to dwindle down. And we would like to make this available to future additions to the tree while we can. We have alot of names but are missing some key information.We are trying to locate information on the MacLeod side of our family. We have a few names, but now with ALL of the MacLeods passed in the family it is very hard. What we do know is that our Grandfather, Charles Alexander MacLeod born 1888-89 and passed away in 1959. He was a coal mine cop in Glace Bay. He married Florence Maude Caines and they had three children, Allister (d 2002) Lorna (d 2004) and Charles (our dad b 1940 d 2001). Our Grandfather had 3 bothers that we know of, Archibald (could have also gone gone by John A), Dan and Ralph. We believe that the family originated in Scotland but not too sure when the family moved to Canada to Cape Breton. We think the family came on the Ship "The Mayflower" but are not too clear on that. Also looking for information on Clements family roots. Our Great Granparents Ellen Leblanc and Charles(Charlie) Clements. And also any informatin on our Great Grandparents Johnathan Caines and Martha Champion. If anyone can help us fill in some blanks it would be more then greatly appreciated. We would like to document what we can for all the little ones coming into the family. And so many of our branches have already passed on. Thanks and God Bless.....
