Comments: Visited Yarmouth last spring while researching my BROWN family....great town!!My grgrgrandfather was Samuel H. Brown b.11 Sep 1814 who worked as a ship's carpenter I was not able to "find" his parents but did visit his grave in the Pioneers Cemetery. Loved your town and had some great food there. I would enjoy e-mailing anyone who lives in Yarmouth ( or nearby) and has family roots in Yarmouth!

Comments: I  hope I'm not wasting time writing this comment.  My family "Eskins," "Ruggles," was from Yarmouth.  I was born there in 1943, and left in 1955 or thereabout to move to Montreal.  I lived on Lewis Street with my grandparents Zeb and Georgina Desbiens.  I keep in touch with several old childhood friends from Yarmouth, Betty Ann Surette and Jeannie O'Connell (Geheu).  My family and I just returned from a week long vacation trip to Yarmouth.  It is growing by leaps and bounds, but I still recognize the place.  Loved shopping at Davis Bros. which is still the same.  We had a reunion about 11 years ago wish someone from Southend school would put on another one.  Hope someone reads this and can connect.

Comments: You have a famous daughter , Lyse Doucet. An article appeared in the English newspaper the Guardian, on January 8th explaining her recent success and where she comes from. And it solved the question of where her fascinating accent originates.

Comments: I have been having a thoroughly wonderful time reading some of the history of Cape Forchu. My mother used to spend her summers there with her grandmother and grandfather Captain Ansel and Annie Crosby and told me many stories of her times there. Ansel Crosby was the manager of the Markland Hotel for a while. I have a plate which Mum always referred to as 'The Yarmouth plate'. It has pictures of the Markland Hotel, the Lighthouse and other local places. She left it to me when she died.
Mum wrote down the stories of her time in Yarmouth and I still have them and treasure them.
I will revisit your site when I have more time. It is excellent!

I am looking for Margarete Louise Sparks, who would be approximately 70 years old now and perhaps living in Maritimes. ML Sparks is probably of African American descent and could have been stationed in Montreal in 1957. Anyone with information please contact me. URGENT. Thank you.
