    1. [CAN-NF-NORTHERN-PENINSULA] Patrick Fogarty Married to Barbara Muriel Miller Baie-Verte
    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: marcelg2001 Surnames: Fogarty Miller Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.canada.newfoundland.northernpeninsula/178/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hello, I know very little about my maternal grandfather Patrick Fogarty and am hoping someone out there might have some information about his parents, grandparents etc, and any living relatives from Newfoundland. All I know is that he met and married my grandmother Barbara Muriel Miller in Scotland where he served during WWII. They lived in Carrbridge Scotland for a few years then he moved his family back to Newfoundland (Baie-Verte) in 1947. They had 4 children: Charles, Lydia, Sally (my mother) and Ian. I'm pretty sure he worked in the forestry or pulp and paper industry and died at a young age somewhere in the 50s. Any information would be appreciated.

Author: codfishbyebye Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.canada.newfoundland.northernpeninsula/5.7.4/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hi, Just have to reply to your post as I am a descendant of the Pynns for Quirpon. G.G.Grandfather, Sir Henry Pynn was the first of the Pynn settlers in Quirpon. He was the admiral of the royal fleet sent to protect the british fishing boundaries of the northern peninsula. He had several children. One of which is my g.grandfather, Frederick Henry Pynn. He had four wives over the course of his life and the last one, Sarah Patey, was my grandmother's mother. She was Elizabeth Pynn. There are several half brothers and sisters. One I know to be Charles Pynn and a sister, Abigael who left NL for Boston in the early 1900's or late 1800's. Charles Pynn was a decorated war hero. Trying to find more on him through RNR. The records of NL archivists are shady at best because of the fire in St. John's in 1891 - 2 that burnt the gov't buildings consisting of all vital statistics. Most of the records are now based on hearsay which can lead Sir Henry to a boy from Harbour Grace!!! (That was a! rather phantom leap that I had found at one point!) Would love to find more of the Pynns in NL. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

The William Caines you ask about is my great grandfather. His son Augustus is my Grandfather and my father is Maurice. Both Augustus and Maurice were also born in Port Saunders. To answer your question, I distinctly remember hearing as a child a conversation mentioning that William Caines is the son of Reuben Caines. I remember because the name Reuben seemed quite unique to me at the time. >From what I can tell, Reuben had a brother Michael and they were among the very first settlers in Port Saunders Heres a link stating so http://collections.mun.ca/PDFs/cns_decks/DA_Vol14_No03.pdf I'm of course not 100% certain but am passing along what I heard to be the case...

Some years ago I traced the Metcalfe line to Glace Bay. I visited the Greenwood Cemetery but did not fine a burial site for Melissa Metcalfe. Is there one? I did find other members of her family buried there. There is a possibility that John Guy who was married to Catherine Pynn (sister of Melissa) being the father of Melissa's child William John.
