Submitted by Paul Kendrick Dec-02

Surname or Maiden Name : Jeffers (nee Fowler; adopted from Halifax as a Cameron)

Given Name : Rose Mary

Birth Year : November 11, 1887

Location : Parrsboro

Your Name & E-mail Address: Paul Kendrick at pkendrick@rushcomm.ca

Additional Detail: Rose Mary Cameron – Deceased

Searching for sister to Rose Mary Cameron born Nov 11,1887. My mother, her daughter is in seventies and would dearly love to contact any cousins and know what became of her aunt. In approximately 1893 at 6 years of age was adopted by Alexander & Mary Fowler from Home of the Guardian Angel in Halifax. My grandmother’s sister was adopted out to another home which remains unknown. Their mother had passed away and their birth father went to sea for a living. Support payments from him stopped coming after a time so girls were put up for adoption. Sister was possibly younger in age (not definite about the age). Teaching nun at Mount Saint Vincent was reported to bear striking resemblance to our Mom. Would follow along that the Catholic connection runs throughout. Need to find records of Cameron family, assuming that a catholic father who lost his wife would possibly leave his children at Guardian Angel. It is wondered if he died at sea or simply abandoned the girls after a period of time that indicated he did indeed send support funds.

Submitted by Dave Campbell May-02

My g.g.grandfather James Campbell emigrated from Scotland to Cumberland Co.–probably to areas around Salem and Amherst, circa 1843. He arrived with wife Mary Jane (Hyndman or Hindman) and sons David Noble Campbell and James Campbell dob. July12,1838 in Edinburgh . This James was my g. grandfather. James (sr.) and Mary Jane had 2 sons and 2 daughters born in Salem, Colchester. The elder James was an 83 yr old widower at the time of the 1881 census–but this is the last I have on him.
Anyone have info on these Campbells??

CAREY – Clara, b. 1852, Amherst, Cumb. Co., NS
Submitted by Jacqueline Clements Dec-04

I am researching my late grandfather’s family. John Coulston (Coulson) was an artilleryman with the Royal Artillery and stationed at Artillery Park, Halifax, Nova Scotia. On 9 March 1869 he wed Clara Carey whose place of residence was listed as Halifax on the marital documents; however, relatives tell me they believe she was from Amherst. Her parents were Charles and Elizabeth Carey.

Clara Carey was born in 1852 and died at Cambuslang, Lanarkshire, Scotland 07 April 1929. After Clara wed John Coulston of the Royal Artillery in 1869, the went to Ireland (Terenu – or Terrenew, Dungannon, County Tyrone) and had several children Elizabeth(Bessie), Louisa, David John, Robert 1875 who is my grandfather, and Charles. The family later moved to Cambuslang, Scotland where they had several other children. It is believed that their son Charles returned to Canada and owned a farm perhaps in Amherst area.

I would be delighted to hear from others researching this family or who may have information regarding same.

COULSON – John, Halifax & Cumb. Co., NS
Submitted by Jacqueline Clements Dec-04

I am researching my late grandfather’s family. John Coulston (Coulson) was an artilleryman with the Royal Artillery and stationed at Artillery Park, Halifax, Nova Scotia. On 9 March 1869 he wed Clara Carey whose place of residence was listed as Halifax on the marital documents; however, relatives tell me they believe she was from Amherst. Her parents were Charles and Elizabeth Carey.

Clara Carey was born in 1852 and died at Cambuslang, Lanarkshire, Scotland 07 April 1929. After Clara wed John Coulston of the Royal Artillery in 1869, the went to Ireland (Terenu – or Terrenew, Dungannon, County Tyrone) and had several children Elizabeth(Bessie), Louisa, David John, Robert 1875 who is my grandfather, and Charles. The family later moved to Cambuslang, Scotland where they had several other children. It is believed that their son Charles returned to Canada and owned a farm perhaps in Amherst area.

I would be delighted to hear from others researching this family or who may have information regarding same.

I am searching the place of birth of one, Ebenezer Thomas COX ,b.19 Dec., 1828 d. 8 Sept., 1916 in Kingsport, Kings Co., N.S. He was a noted shipwright and constructed 30 vessels in his 30 year career with an aggregate tonnage of almost 30m tons.

This information was extracted from a genealogical/history book entitled THE COX CONNECTION (Descendants of Capt. John Cox 1717-1789) by Albert L. Peppard.

I am a great grandson of the noted Ebenezer Thomas COX, his daughter Mary Naomi Cox marrying my late late late grandfather Clemens DeBryus McLELLAN, s/o Archibald Thompson McLELLAN and Marie BLENKHORN, late of Advocate Harbour, Cumb. Co., N.S.
