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.
