Comments: Hi, I am trying to obtain any information about my father and his family. He was called Gene "K.O" Fowler,D.O.B 20 July 1920, he was born in Brooklyn Yarmouth County. He has his picture in The Town and County Sports Heritage Association Hall of Famers (1999). He was a boxer, holding the Maritime Light Heavyweight Championship Title for 3 years whilst serving in the Canadian Forces during WW2. He married my mother in 1945 and resided in England after the war. Sadly he died in March 1985 after a short illness.
I would be most grateful for any information about my fathers School and teenage years.(He was bought up in a Childrens Home in his early years).He was a very charming, sensitive, sweet man who spoke very little about himself and his younger years.
Any/All help would be gratefully received.

Name: sonia hotte
Location: Sturgeon Falls, Ontario
My name is Sonia Hotte. My grandmother is from Surette Island;
her name is Jessi Muise. I will be visiting my relatives, none of
whom I have ever met, in May, 2004. I was just curious about the
region since it is my descendance, my blood. If you have any information
on the family name (Muise), I would really be interested in it. I am really
looking forward to visiting the region and meeting my relatives.
I will be accompanied by my grandmother (JEssi) and mother (if all goes
according to plan). The last time my grandmother visited was for
the funeral of her brother. My mother last visited when she was 16
(almost 40 years ago!)

Comments: Just a quick hello to my family and friends in Yarmouth.
Comments: Yarmouth is a beautiful place. I learned this when I met my
inlaws for the first time in 2001. My husband & I met here, in Calgary
but are from the East Coast. The shoreline is tremendous. My inlaws have
an awesome view of the Harbour which was a warm welcome to a new place
to visit. Great hospitality from the inlaws also helped. Yarmouth is a
small but gorgeos & well kept town with friendly people.
Name: Robbin Thibeau & Angela Lynds
Location: Calgary, Alberta
Comments: My first trip to Yarmouth was amazing. I was there to meet
the inlaws for the first time. What a wonderful experience! Not only was
the hospitality great but the town is an awesome place to vacation. The
shorelines are tremendous. The sandy beaches were amazing and peaceful.
There is nothing more relaxing than being by the open ocean and hearing
the waves crash against the boulders. The inlaws, Mr & Mrs. Thibeau
took us site seeing to Bunker's Island, Yarmouth Lighthouse, Portland Beach,
and so on. Our view from the inlaws consisted of a fantastic and peaceful
view of the Harbour and a shipwrecked boat across the way.

Comments: The flowers that are at Cape Forchu are called, maybe, "ice
flowers", or some variation of this idea. They are rather like a
pansy but much more colourful with, I think, white feathery edges.
I bought some seeds last summer but can't find the packages right now.
As far as I know, they are available only at the Cape Forchu Gift Shop.
When I sort out our seeds for the spring planting, I will hopefully find
the proper name. Plan to be back in Summer 2004 after we take our daughter
to Dalhousie in Halifax.
