Comments: Hi. I've visited the maritimes more than a dozen times, starting from early childhood, but never made it to Yarmouth unfortunatly. Lately I became more and more interested upon finding out that the frost-free growing season there is about 6 months long. Is that true? What are the approximate dates of the last spring frost and first fall frost? How does that compare with other areas of Nova Scotia? Any info on frost dates/growing season would be much appreciated.

Name: Bernie Maughan
Location: Mount Pleasant, Nova Scotia
I was born in Yarmouth General Hospital in 1961. I lived in Pembroke until I was 11 yrs old. My dad was Jack Bielby and my mom is Thelma Bielby (nee Comeau). There was also my brother Gary Comeau. We lived across from the shore road. Lucy Jarvis painted my portrait also. I have lost track of where it is and would love to know it's where abouts. My best friend when I was there was Susan Cushing, daughter of Wayne & Fran. My son is doing a project on Yarmouth because that is where I am from. That is why I found your site. Keep in touch. Thank you.

Location: Caldwell, NJ, USA
Comments: We recently vacationed in Nova Scotia. On our last day in
your wonderfull province, we ended up getting stuck in a ditch one hour
before we were scheduled to board the Bar Harbor Fast-Ferry. Many of your
kind local residents stopped to offer assistance and advice. Almost all
recommended we call Ken Gillian. We did. Ken promptly showed up with his
tow truck, lifted us out of the ditch and had us on our way in short order.
We would like to thank everyone involved, especially Ken Gillian. Thank
you all !-Bob Randall,Joan Raabe,Princess and Bubba

Location: St John's, Newfoundland
Comments: Hello Everyone,
I am from Yarmouth, I moved to St John's about a year ago. I love
it here but I do miss Yarmouth sometimes! I think most of all I miss
Port Maitland beach. There are very few sandy beaches here, I never
realized how lucky we are to have a beach like that. Hope to see
everyone some day soon. Cheers!
Hi Lisa -would have sent you an
email but .....no address.. Hope things are going well. Put
on a bit of weight and am doing more rolling than rocking. :-)

Name: Ronald Brown "Rob" Moir
Comments: I enjoyed Dr. Farish's Medical Biography of the Bond-Farish
Family. He neglected to mention that Dr. James Bond and Deborah Tooker
Bond had six children: Deborah born 1814, Stephen b.1815, Anne b. 1818,
Elizabeth b. 1820, Norman J. b. 1822, and Maria b. 1824. Elizabeth
Bond married Yarmouth's genealogist George Stayley Brown on April 23, 1856.
Their granddaughter Elizabeth Anna Brown married John Arthur Moir.
The Bond medical legacy is alive and well in their grandson Dr. Alex Moir.
Alex's brother, James Bond Moir is a boat builder.
George Stayley Brown's paternal grandparents Janet Balfour Abercrombie
and John Brown came to Yarmouth about 1800 from Draffan, a village twenty
miles south of Glasgow, Scotland. Brown's maternal grandparents were
among Yarmouth's first settlers, Mary MacKinnon (daughter of Ranald MacKinnon)
and Dr. Richard Fletcher.
Name: Deloris Anderson
Location: Newellton n s
Comments: Enjoyed looking at the different villages, great job here.
Comments: The Carleton page is a little confusing for me. Was Carleton
at one time called Temperance? I need to know for a project. Would some
one let me know?
Comments: Am also very thankfull for the prompt reply I recieved from
my last question. Thank you for the maps.I am an artist in my last year
of college and my graduation work has been all about Carleton landscape
- abstract. Anyway, if Temperance was Carleton's name for a while that
would be a great name for my show. Fingers crossed.
Comments: My grandfather ran the light on Candlebox Island for 26 years, his name was Norman Cottreau my father George was born and raised there.
Comments: Thankyou for taking the time to create a page on Wellington. I grew up at the sheepfarm you speak of and have many fond memories of that village and still own property there.
