Comments: Greetings Wellington. While reading
through the recent posts, I found one requesting
old pictures of Wellington. Unfortunately, I
don't have any of their house but I do have some
of mine. I was born in Yarmouth and lived at
what is now 1942 Evangaline Trail. I attended
Wellington School which was directly across the
road from the Wellington Hall.The school was one
room and the teacher taught grades 1A through 9.
I think it was 1955 when the school was closed
and we were bussed to the new consolidated
school in Hebron. On Sundays we would attend
church services at the "Hall", which were
conducted by Rev. O'Grady from Hebron. At
Christmas time there would be a Christmas party
at the Hall and us kids had to do recitations
which I hated. It was fun though and of course
all the mothers brought cookies & candies to
hand out.I have sent some old pictures to the
Webmaster to put on the Wellington site. Wish I
had more. Pierce's mill was down the hill from
my house and it provided us kids with endless
opportunites to get into mischief. The Millpond
was a place to sail out homemade rafts and the
stream leading from the mill had some of the
best trout holes in the area. Fond memories of a

Comments: Hello my name is Jay Gaudette and I'm
attempting to do family history.
I'm having a problem identifying who my 1st
Great Grandmother is.
She was married to Timothy Olivier Gaudette
(has various spellings) born 13 Feb 1856 in
Melbourne, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. Just
about everything I see shows Vénérante
Comeau as being his wife.
My difficulty arises because I have a copy of my
Grandfather Hebert Martin Gaudette
Marriage Certificate showing his mother as Mary
I realize that the clerk at the City of
Boston probably misspelled “Comeau” as
“Comno.” But the “Mary C.” does not sound
On the LDS Family Search site I find a reference
to Mary Comeau being born on 8 July 1875 In
Shaticamp, Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada to Marin
Comeau and Natalie Theriau and there are other
variations of spellings for the father, mother
and daughter (the wife of Timothy Olivier
Of course, his name has had various spelling
also. He was born Gaudet, while on at
least two Canadian census it was spelled Godet
and on the ship’s manifest to the United States
at was spelled with my Gaudette spelling.
My questions sound simple, but I’m aware that
they are not.
1. Was Vénérante actually
2. If No: then who is
Timothy’s wife, Mary (Marie) or Vénérante?
3. If Mary: if Marin and
Natalie are her parents, would you have any idea
who then is beyond them? Dead ends are
4. If Vénérante: do you know
which set of parents are hers?
I have been able to have 160 Comeau family
members in my tree, but I find it so funny that
the one most direct to me, is giving me the

Comments: South End of my youth full of optimism
After a recent trip to Yarmouth I was thinking
about growing up in the South End of the town
between 1951-72. In fact I submitted a copy of
this to the Vanguard. Yarmouth South was a
magical place to grow up. It is such a
shame like places like the Temple Church and
many of the large homes are in such disrepair in
2013. The new Mayor has a big job on her plate.
But she seems to be up for the task. I wish her
Even the seasons in that place bring back such
vivid memories.The spring brought the smell of
burning grass around Queen Street and the sight
of kites flying over the golf links from my
kitchen window. The long days of summer summoned
hikes to Bunker Island & playing with the
neighbour hood kids till dark. Fall would
introduce the excitement of the first day of
school and walks along William Street, windy
nights and a magical Halloween. Finally winter
would bring with it skating on Allan’s Pond and
hockey behind Notre Dame church, Playground
Christmas treats, McGuiness Family playing
Christmas music from their house widow’s walk on
bond Street. What are your memories of growing
up in South end?
The biggest difference I can see between the
Yarmouth South of my youth and today is exactly
what was said in the editorial. That part of
town is missing a strategic vision and a
community anchor. Rumor has it the new council
is going to review all of the former strategic
plans already done for the town and blend them
together into one for 2013. I think this is a
In my time the vision came from my neighbors.
They included Willard Allen, Harry and Sadie
Goudey, Ernie and Myrtle Wilson, Mr. and Mrs.
McDowell, Mr. and Mrs. Ira Rozee, Margaret Cann,
Don and Myrtle Dunn, Emily and Gus Doucette, the
Brush family, the Bishara and Crosby families
and finally my own Mom and Dad, Earl and
Marilyn. Their vision was simple, anything was
possible in your life if you came from South end
Yarmouth. These people all left unique imprints
on my character that I was to draw on all during
my life. There isn’t one of these individuals
that I couldn’t tell you something amazing
about. The community Anchor was Notre Dame
church and Amirault’s store. One gave the
residents purpose and the other gave them pride.
I know I would be considered an outsider now if
I ever moved back to Yarmouth. It is one of my
only life regrets that saw my career path take
me away from my soul place. I laugh sometimes
when I hear that other parts of Yarmouth think
of South End as the poor part of town. This
considering residents of HRM probably things the
same provincially about Yarmouth in general. It
is time to end this mind set about Yarmouth that
there are rich and poor parts. Trust me, in life
money is never the measuring stick used to
determine character. And that is one thing
Yarmouth South and its residents have always had
To conclude: I wish all the best to the people
and council of the town. Hopefully by working
together and embrassing change the town of
Yarmouth can once again be a place of vision and

was in 1930. And since then all i have always
said,it is the last place God built on this

the reunion of Arcadiens. And the LeBlanc clan
registered at St Annes @ Church Point. There
were 4000 of us LeBlanc's from all corners of
the states. That couple of weeks was a party
second to none. To go back a litle in time i
have been to Pinkney's Point at least 60 times
in my 84 years. But it was always Grand Ma's,
later ny parents who went back to retire from
New York, and then Cousins i would visit. But
then i decided on one visit to see Nova Scotia
and we took a 10 day trip up the south shore
across and down the north shore, staying in B
& B's. The History that Lonfellow wrote in
his book Evengline is a drop in the bucket to
what we learned. The melting pop Of French,
Scot's, Germans, and yes the brutal English. I
say that it's they at one point in time took
over the area from those who worked so hard to
set up. They took all the Arcadiens and set them
out on boats seperating men women and children.

down the whole eastern seaboard ending in New

did regain some of there loses. So here iam born

Of an ocean rubbing up against
A diamond 'neath the sky

Take the time to look around ...
And, spend a precious day or two
Down in Yarmouth town.
Go to Freddy Emin's Butcher Shop;
Better service you won't find ...
And, the clams at Mern's are wonderful things
To curb one's appetite.
Take a comfy room at The Grand Hotel
'Cross the way from old Frost Park ...
Then, sit and watch the harbor lights
When the skies above are dark.
There's the Red and White down on Argyle
Just on the corner of Main ...
And, the prices here are not so dear
To cause your wallet pain.
The Dinner Plate up Milton 'way
Stands out ... and, I'll tell you why ...
There is no finer place to go
For down home rappie pie.
When the skies are blue over Cape Forchu
And, the ocean is serene ...
When the winds are calm and the clouds are few
It's such a peaceful scene.

All along my old home shore ...
