Comments: Hi: I would like to contact a cousin I have, but lost touch
with over the years. Her name was Kathy Nickerson, her parents were
Avery and Erna (both deceased). I remember I have a cousin named Wayne
Nickerson who is her brother. They lived on the road to the lighthouse
in Yarmouth. Kathy worked in a hair salon last we met in Yarmouth
(I think in the mall where K-Mart is/was). Anyone who might know
her whereabouts, please have her contact me. Thanks!
Name: Wayne Albert
Comments: Hello, we moved to Alberta in September of 2004 and love it out here, but we do miss Yarmouth, the ocean, the lighthouse, the country, and, yes, even the fog and snow! We don't get much snow out here at all, and no fog that I have seen. Hi to everyone I know who may read this.
Comments: very nice--I love the history of the villages. Time to update the Port Maitland site though--the Canada Factory, to which you give so much time and attention, is long gone. In the history section it says Robert Crosby owns the land of the old school. He has long ago passed away. It would be nice to know exactly what field the school was on.
You say the population increased due to the Beaver River fire of 1820.
Did you know that the only house to survive that fire recently burned down?
My aunts told me it was owned at one time by Mrs. Charlie Wyman who used
to publish poems in the Vanguard. It was on the west side of the
road going to Digby and was backed by cranberry bogs which we very productive
about 50 years ago. The house, just before it burned, was unpainted
with blue shutters, and was built into the side of a bank or hill.
It was sad to see it go.

Comments: Revised from Dec 2005. If anyone is related to my Yarmouth side of the family (ATKINS/ROBICHAUD), I would love to hear from you.
The ATKINS relationship is through my late mother; Mary Madeline JAMES, daughter of Thomas Henry JAMES (b.1896 in Liverpool) and (A)Mary Lillian ATKINS (b.1905/6 in the Yarmouth), her mother's name was Mary E. "Doan" ROBICHAUD (b.1862/6 in the Yarmouth) and her father's name was Malford ATKINS (b.1860/2 in the Yarmouth).
My grandmother (A) had a brother named Henry and one of her sisters
married into the SAUNIER? family. Her son Herbert married into the
MUISE family. She was a Roman Catholic of French or Acadian origin.
Does anyone remember this family?

Comments: Hi folks: Thanks for putting together a great site. Brings
back a lot of memories of growing up and strolling the beach for hours
on end. Water generally too cold to get into, but when the fog held back
you could pick up a good tan on those sands. Lobsters were good cooked
over an open fire with a bunch of teenagers gathered there on late nights
too. Appreciate the memories. Would enjoy hearing from some of those
who remember me or my dad Waldo and mom Goldie at the corner store
when they owned it.

Name: Anne BT
Comments: Ah--March will soon be with us--and spring will follow. That means I get to head 'home'. I miss everyone! You are right--we should think of this as an electronic newspaper or 'family' newsletter and post often. I enjoy checking to see who has signed in, updates on local news and bits of history people pass on. When I head up Chebogue Road and look across the harbour to the lighthouse I am always sure I have seen the most place on earth. My home gives me the gift of knowing how lucky I am. It is always nice to read who is coming to Yarmouth to visit for the first time, or return again having left a piece of their heart there. The magic in the air calls us back again and again!
Nice to hear from you again... Anne's

here in Boston miss her so much. I hope you will oneday acknowledge

anyone you think might be interested. I will be back in touch with everybody

Comments: We are planning to visit for a weekend in June. We don't want to bring the car just for one day but may want to venture further than walking distance. I was wondering if Yarmouth offers any taxi service. Could you please let me know at your earliest convenience? This will be our first time in Nova Scotia so all this is very new to me. Thank you for your time. Nancy Post
Comment. It should be no problem to get a taxi when you need one.
Their is also a car rental service.
Comments: I have heard of Surette's Island as part of an original land grant from an English King to the Surette forebears who were from France but somehow ended up in England and received this land grant in the New World.
Comment: I am working on the history of Surrett's Island. Some
of the information can be found at Here
I thank you for the opportunity to view some recent
photos of Arcadia. I haven't been to the village for years and noticed
quite a few changes. My brother (Peter) and I grew up in Arcadia in the
fifties. Peter attended school in the village and high school at Yarmouth
Regional High School before leaving for Acadia University in Wolfville.
My parents and I moved from the village in 1962.
Anyway..back to work.

Comments: My grandmother Annie Laurie Marshall was born in Tusket around 1880's. Her Mother was Susan Burns, granddaughter of the Poet Robert Burns. I would appreciate the address of the Town clerk of Tusket to find their birth dates and marriage dates of both ladies. Annie Laurie married N.Sanford MacQuarrie in the early 1900's. Thank you, LC

Reply: Good MorningWebmaster LeBlanc,
I want to thank you so very
much for the quick response to my questions and for the web sites.
Have a great day. It's quite sunny here in Massachusetts today.
We are expecting snow tomorrow. Next summer I fully intend to travel
up to your area and visit the town of Tusket. It's such a pleasure
to find information about our ancesters. My Mother's aunt Bertha
MacQuarrie (I forgot her married name) lived in Digby NS. She was
my Granddad's sister. He had seven sisters. He was the only boy and
if one of the girls did something wrong, he got the spanking! Needless
to say the girls behaved themselves quite well. My Mom told me that.
Regards, Laura B.C.
