Believe it or not, $186,000 is being held in trust by the Nova Scotia Finance Department and will remain there until we locate a missing person named "Susan Ross" who grew up in Oxford, Cumberland County. Susan was born in 1893. She was the daughter of Alexander M. Ross (approx. 1852 - ?) and Mary E. (Moore) Ross (approx. 1858 - ?). The names of children in this Ross family as recorded in the "Cumberland County 1911 Cencus" are as follows:

* William
* Bessie
* Mary L.
* Walter D.
* Hugh John
* Susan M. (1893 - ????)
* Robert Kitchen (1900 - 1984)
* Estella MacKintosh (1901- 1982)

It may be worthwhile noting that Susan's mother, Mary E. Moore, was a sister of Estella S. Moore (1859 - 1904) who also lived in Oxford, Cumberland County. Estella S. Moore married Albert Scott MacKintosh (1805 - 1926) who ran a Drug Store for many years in Oxford. (He was also the first president of the board looking after the Pine Grove Cemetery.

The $186,000 (plus interest) mentioned above is the remaining portion of the WILL / estate of Simonne MacKintosh (the wife of Albert Munro MacKintosh who was the son of Albert Scott MacKintosh). Simonne passed away in 1998 (and she is buried at the Pine Grove Cemetery). In Simonne's WILL, she bequeathed this portion of her estate to four well known charities on the condition that Susan Ross predeceased her. It is very likely that Susan did predecease he because she would have been over 100 years old in 1998 when Simonne passed away.

Scotiatrust as executor of Simonne's estate, did a preliminary search to locate Susan Ross; however, they did not locate her and therefore passed the money over to the Public Trustee assuming that the charities would take up the search ... which is what we are now doing 10 years later!

ANY ADDITIONAL FAMILY TREE INFORMATION ABOUT "SUSAN ROSS" AND ESPECIALLY ANY TIPS ABOUT WHERE SHE MAY HAVE LIVED LATER IN HER LIFE, WOULD BE ENORMOUSLY APPRECIATED! THE FOUR CHARITIES THAT ARE NAMED AS THE BENEFICIARIES OF THIS MONEY (IF WE CAN FIND SUSAN ROSS) ARE AS FOLLOWS:

* Canadian Cancer Society
* Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation
* Canadian Arthritis Society
* Ostomy Halifax Society

ANY TIPS OR SUGGESTIONS TO HELP IN OUR SEARCH FOR "SUSAN ROSS" WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED !!!

Hello,

Don't know if this has been solved yet but since the original post the 1921 census has been released...

Susie Ross born 1893 (sister in law) was listed with Bessie Shier + John Shier + son John Ross Shier in Parkdale Toronto, Ontario. [dist 113 - 29 pg 1 line 3-6]

Hope it helps.

Regards, Peter.
