Comments: My wife and I just recently purchased an ink sketch of the Sanford Drawbridge at a yard sale in Fairfield Harbour, New Bern North Carolina.  The sketch was drawn by Ruth Rideout.  The sketch was labled on the back.  The label roused our curiosity so we "googled" Sanford Drawbridge, Yarmouth County N.S.  Thank you to Ruth Rideout for the beautiful artwork.

Comments: The last home of my Aunt Alva and Uncle Clifton Woods overlooking this lake in Reynardton and where Aunt Alva tried to feed me baked rabbit telling me it was chicken.  The first bite told me different even at my young age and I threw it across the kitchen.  That lake across the road from their house is where my older brother nearly drowned and made my mother so afraid of water she never did let us kids learn out to swim until later in life.  I remember that area so well in my mind but would like someday to refresh that memory of seeing the old place again.

We are visiting Yarmouth the end of June & I would like to visit my father's grave, but I might not be able to find it on my own. All I know is that he was buried at Chegoggin Cemetary.

Comments: Great little write up, thanks for the information & insight it gives about Richfield. Just recently my roots that I thought were strictly established in Tusket & Gavelton, now appear to have origin in Richfield. Apparently my grgrandfather sold a house there that was his father's to his neice Melvina Gavel & her husband Edwin Harding. In the early 1900's the house burned to the ground. A small house with a loft was built to accommodate his family of wife & 6 children, until he could rebuild. But he died in a hunting accident in the woods in Maine, USA where he had gone to work in the lumber industry. Story tells it that Melvina always lived in that little house. I assume she died there also. Anyway, thus my search for this hamlet called Richfield. So thanks again,  c. :)

Comments: Hypolite Surrett  (my great grandfather) was born in about 1853, probably on Marris or Surrette's Island.  Around 1889 or so, he married Frances Malonson.  My grandfather is John Phillipe Surette born on May 12 1893.

William Hurst was born at Half Island Cove in Guysborough in 1857.  He was a fisherman.  William married Eunice Weeks on 12/4/1880.  William died at sea in 1904, and his wife died shortly after that. 
William and Eunice's daughter, Mabel Hurst, married John Phillippe Surrette.

More history on the web site surette family.org if anyone is interested or can share more information it would be greatly appreciated.

Je prévois visiter, de nouveau, Pubnico en juillet prochain.
Au plaisir!!!

Comments: I am looking for information on the Leblanc's of Abram's River ... my greatgrandfather, Melbourne Leblanc married Annie Doucette, Melbourne was the son of Simon, who married Martha Frotter (Frotten?) and had 10 children ... Simon was the son of Ben.  I visited Nova Scotia (and Abram's River)in the 80's and was lucky enough to meet Rosie Muse, who was quite elderly at the time, my grandmother (Frances Leblanc Looker) often spoke of her and that she and my great-grandmother were friends... Any information would be helpful, as I've run into a wall with regard to Simon and Martha.  Thanks so much.
