Good Day

my family tree and if there is anyone out there related to Frank Francis I'd love to hear from you. I guess making family trees is the "in" thing, just about every other person one speaks to is involved one way or another. It's a great past time and very time consuming.I'm a great history buff (especially British),that's what decided me to get involved in my own roots.....You're doing a great job, keep up the good work and thank you for this site. It's appreciated very much.

Comments: I just wanted to contact you. I spent many summers in Tusket. My Grandfather and Grandmother were Charles and Margaret Allen. They lived in the Bingy house not far from the post office, nearer to the school, on the side of the road the Gaol is located. The house was sold about 10 years ago, to George Warner... (I am sorry I may have his name wrong)I have many fond memories tagging along my Grandfather On his various nature walks, birding,or to the Yarmouth museum.  I can't think of a better place to bring up children. i hope Tusket and Yarmouth County remains as beautiful as it is, with sucess.If it were easier to immigrate to Canada, I would be doing so . I can get a duel citizenship, but my American Husband would be the Bread winner being a high school History teacher. I currently work for the evil American health insurance field while he finishes his certification. I am a trained Archealogist, (illistrator and artist. but I work in insuraace full time as well for the benefits. I have 2 children who I want them to see the beauty of Tusket, it's friendly people the wild blue berries, lupine, the hanging oak, the gaol, I could go on. I love your website it was prefect tonic to my homesickness for Yarmouth county especailly this time of year.
Thank you for listening, you live in a beautiful place. 

Thank You

Comments: Well I'm finally making the time to comment.  I did see this site last year (passed on to me by a co-worker who has relatives on Isle Madame).  It was so cool to see all the houses and the scenery.  I still marvel at the beauty of our island.  Imagine - that's where I grew up!!!  In West Arichat where my dad (Adolphe) and dear Aunt (Genelle) still live as well as 3 brothers; 1 brother in D'Escouse; my sister in Petit de Grat.  We have a cottage in Port Royal so would love to see Janvrin's Island and Port Royal included.  We vist often and our kids love it down there.  Things that I took for grant it (fishing, swimming, walking the beach, combing the woods) they can't get enough off.  Great job of bringing back fond memories.  Keep it up!!!

  I do agree with Mr Jeffery that you should include some information on the Little River Dog.  I am coming to Nova Scotia for a visit with a friend who has moved to Yarmouth at the beginning of June. One of my reasons to visit is to explore the birthplace of this great little dog.

Comments: Does anyone have a photo of what once was called "Murphy's Bridge" near Milton, Yarmouth? 

My mother from East Pubnico worked there for a Miss Murphy who was a lady of some note in her day, a kindly woman who took great pride in her home and community. She was particular in every way, especially in providing impeccable hospitality to friends and guests. 

Those were some of my mother's memories and impressions from her experience at the Murphy home in Yarmouth when she was age seventeen or eighteen--about 1924 or 1925.  Thank you, 
Marie

Comments: Thank you for the photos of the buildings in Sand Beach. There I see the home my grandparents bought  and moved into in 1912 when they moved their family from Wedgeport, Theodore Doucette and Rosalie (Surette). Grandpa planted an oak tree in front of the house and it's there yet.  There were pink roses climbing up thes south side of the big old square house that we loved so much because our Grandpere and Grandmere lived there! 
During those years, our eyes were opened to many new aspects of life, of life and of death. We learned about these mysteries at an early age.
I remember seeing Grandpere sleeping in a pretty bed with his black suit on, and I remember his big dark moustache. Dad lifted me up to see him sleeping with his suit on. It was November 1935 and I was age four. That is a treasured memory! Then Grandmere lived there with her son a few more years before they moved to Halifax to be near family members.

Down the road a little further, on the other side of the road was the Horton House, (the very next house to that of John Cosman and Janie Hubbard, on the south side of the wonderful Cosman family! John Cosman died in the mid 1930s, I recall, because they family had a beautiful wreath on the front door for a long time)

Anyway, we lived in that beautiful mansion of a Horton House--for me it was a mansion, especially with the bay window and butler's pantry, little back stairs and large front stairs with its ornate railing. There were three pantries and servants quarters at the back and several outbuildings, two porches, milk pantry, shed, barn, henhouse and so on.  Beautiful rooms throughout, up and down, large hallways, and evidence that indoor plumbing had been in the planning stages. A Mr Fisher had a store in the front room to the north and when we moved in there, we children found a box full of packages of Doubleming gum! Joy for us; chagrin for Mom! There was a stonewall comverd with the sweetest smelling honeysuckle vines, and also fat juicy blackberries.  There was a little apple tree in the back yard that we could reach up into to pick the beautiful blossoms that had perfume sent into them by angels, not the ones who lived in the clouds who made rain fall, but those who lived in Heaven! 

We all had to leave my fairytale home because of WW2 when my father was transferred to Halifax.  What a change for all of us! 

now in my "old age" I take the liberty to pour out what has always remained in my heart, the fairytale story of early childhood that was suddenly changed because of "war onthe other side of the world".
Thank you for reading my story and many many thanks for the wonderful gift of photos of those two houses and of the many other homes with their familiar faces! and environnement. Still a little girl at heart, Marie 
OH! does anyone have a photo of the Sand Beach SCHOOL?

Thank you for your wonderful letter Marie

Comments: I received the surprise of my life this week when contacted by a cousin I had never met from Washington State, USA who tracked me down through a third party who had left a message in your guest book. Awesome! I of course then checked your website and was rocketed back to the Sixties and the Ghost Squad site. What great memories that brought back. Thanks for such a great sight.

Comments: I took these pictures of Yarmouth so others can see the character, beauty and charm that we have to offer. There are many former Yarmouthians who miss home so I hope these bring back memories.

Lynn Hemeon Comments: If there is anyone who wishes a picture of your street or old residence , please email me. I may have it or will get it for you. Only pictures of Yarmouth as I have very few outside of town, but you never know.
This is only for those who have moved away and miss good old Yarmouth and it's FREE.
