Comments: My Father - Fred Killam spent the summers of his youth at
Mooswa. At the age of 91 he remembers his fellow campers and
activities with great fondness.
Comments: Great website! I am researching my mother's childhood and know she lived at 23 Clements Street. She was born in 1923 in Yarmouth and her father was Dr. Thomas A. Lebbetter who owned the house on Clements from 1922-1942.
I have yet to visit Yarmouth but will one day for sure.

James was a founding family of Kempt.
Name: Sandy Christie
Location: Gulfport, MS. USA
Comments: I enjoy so much reading the recent inputs to the log. I guess
it's about ime I made another entry myself. There are probably a few of
you who remember me, probably more so since Iv'e been making my yearly
visits back home, which I so hope I'm able to pull off again this summer.If
anyone sees this and would, please remind Winnie Surette at the bank that
I still plan on coming up for the reunion next year. If you see her please
give her my new email address. I believe I've changed it since I last gave
it to her. Wouldn't want to miss out on my invitation. Don't be shy, if
you remember me I'd love to hear from you and perhaps we could get to visit
this time while I'm at home.
Comments: My mother is from Nova Scotia, we were there last summer,
and now my mother. brother, and son will be coming back in August. It's
our second home, we love it. Yarmouth is a great place to spend time

Name: Ann MacDonald
Location: Stratford PEI
Comments: I was just looking at the photos of Sand Beach. Like Marie I remember going down to the beach and enjoy playing in the sand and swimming in the water. This was in the 50's, it's a shame that people have ruined such a beautiful family area.
My late Mother Hilda Cosman Gorveatt was born in Sand Beach, the daughter of John Edward Cosman and his wife Janie Hubbard Cosman.
I will be attending the HUBBARD family reunion in August, but alas I will not go down to the beach. It would break my heart to see what happened to it.

Location: Petawawa, Ontario
Comments: I was born in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, however, left home in 1963, to join the military.
However, I have kept in touch and watched Yarmouth grow...from a distance.
Over the years I have returned to visit the area and continue to be amazed at how warm visitors are recieved. Forty years have passed since I left home, so I consider myself a visitor. Many of my "growing-up-friends" are no longer in the area or passed on, and most remembered places I roamed as a young boy are now gone, replaced by homes, malls and the growth of Yarmouth.
I have travelled a great deal, and met many types of people. What has not changed in Yarmouth are the people. Faces and names changed but the hospitality remains. The people of Yarmouth, those who work in restaurants, hotels, and shops, truly are the finest people I have met.
I wanted to comment and to show my appreciation of the people of Yarmouth,
with a thanks that whenever I visit, I am made to feel at home.

Comments: A couple of summers ago my husband and I visited Yarmouth, for him the first time, for me the first time in about 18 years. It was bittersweet. I have so many memories of growing up in the area ~Darling Lake, actually~
It was good to see all the old places, but having been out of touch so long, no old faces. Planning on visiting through again in a couple of years or so, hopefully.
Would love to hear from anyone who might remember the 'Our Place' restaurant..
or me for that matter

Comments: I visited Yarmouth County last week while on vacation. It was a wonderful, wonderful day! I loved the friendliness of the folks we met, the food (rappie pie especially!) and the self-sufficient lifestyle.
I am seriously considering relocating (at least during vacations!) to NS to continue my love affair with the area, the water, the peoples and ofcourse the seafood!
For the short-term where would I start looking for a family that might want an annual house-swap in the Great Smoky Mountain area of Tennessee/North Carolina?

Comments: Hello, great site, I'm trying to find out a bit about my rich acadian history. I was born in Cape Breton, but my father was from Yarmouth N.S His mother was a "Surette" I think that's the right spelling. I think I'm a descendant of Phillipe Mius D'Entremont, apparently all the Muise's Meuse's etc.. were all related. Any help anyone could give me would be so appreciated.
Thanks Mike :)

Location: Mississauga Ontario
Comments: thankyou sooooooooo much for posting this information, my dad is Edward Muise he is in the front row next to Walter Hazelton 1940.
My dad passed on in 2002 suddenly,He is missed so much, he was sooooooooo talented, his leathercraft is all over the world. he leaves behind 5 children, (oldest to youngest) Helen,Edward Jr,Glenn,Shannon,Michael and his wife Joyce.
He had a really hard life,being forced to leave school at the age of three to help at home while my Grandfather went to war. But he was incredibly smart and gifted in many ways.
I'm hoping to make it down east for the Mius reunion and tell
people about my dad.
