Comments: A very gratefull thank you all for the presentation complied
on Arcadia. Without a doubt the most informative data compilied. Again,
a special thanks as I was born in Arcadia in 1950 just by the junction.
Comments: I want to give a special thank you to a great lady named Cathy at the visitors info. center in Yarmouth. She tried her darnest to help us on Mon, August 18th. We came over on the Cat that morning but our plans got changed and we were stranded at the dock basically. Cathy tried everything she could to get us on a tour which were all full for the day and then a rental car which also were all taken. So we resorted to the walking tour of the area. She made a better situation out of one that was pretty disappointing. My friend and I chuckled as we walked and remember how hard she tried and all avenues she tried to help us. I recognized her in the photo of the Tourism Team in the Coastal Discovery Magazine as I was unpacking my gear.
Thanks again Cathy.

My mother's family grew up in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia [actually my
Aunt Sharon (Johnson) lives in Greenville] and I'm wondering
if you have any information about black history in Yarmouth in the 1600's.

my husband was born there. Wilfred Ellis Son of the Late Edward Ellis And
Mildred Malliet Ellis. They grew up on the richmond road. beside the Uptons
And the Doucetts. we were there for a visit on the 6 of August for the
exhibition, and stayed for a couple of day's. enjoyed ourselves a lot .
next year we will stay for a week, and take in all the sights of the area.
we even picked some rose hips i hope that they will grow here they are
beautiful. we walked on the port maitland beach and watched the tide come
and go the sound of the waves made my husband homesick. as the saying you
can take the boy out of the country but you cant take the country out of
the boy and this is true for anyone born in the country as i was as well.
well thank you for this time and i cant wait til next year. and my husband
feels the same way.we do have another connection there as well we have
3 boys that have grown up there and in salmon river we have a son who is
burried there as well 23 years on sept 24 next month. so this place does
hold a special place in our hearts. bye for now and we will be back to
yarmouth when ever we can . your's truly Mr & Mrs Wilfred Ellis.

Comments: Doing family research on my Mother's side.
Mum was Hilda Cosman of Sand Beach (Yarmouth), daughter ofthe late Janie and John Edward Cosman. I am having trouble finding out who my Great-Grandmother's family was.
Gram's mother was Sophia Moulaison married to Simon Hubbard presume of Yarmouth area. Mum once told me that Sophia's family were from South Ohio.
Does anyone have her name in their family tree or know of her? My Grandmother was born in 1890 so you would have to go back some years to find Sophia's birth.
Would appreciate any help.
Spent alot of summers at the Grandmother's in Sand Beach, have some great memories. Hope to get "Down Home" soon.
Glad you have this web site. Ann J. MacDonald
