I'm wondering IF anyone could look up the obituary for ( Isabel WARREN ), who died in 1974? She MIGHT be listed as Agnes WARREN. This is from Lakeside Cemetery, North Sydney: Warren Ernest 1904 - 1935 Husband of Isabel 1903 - 1974
I am hoping to find a researcher in the Sydney area to do some research in the land sales office. I have some information already as a starting point. Thanks! Judy MacIntyre

Hello! New message, please read <http://netsynchcomputersolutions.com/set.php?x7> firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi; I have been looking for information on my 2 great granparents, Joseph EDWARDS and Flora McDOUGALL. They were born bet. 1850 - 1854 in Little Bras D'Or. Their parents were Joseph & Mary EDWARDS and Neil & Christy McDOUGALL (Christy may have been a McCuish). Joe & Flora had 5 children; Mary Ann b 1870, Margaret Jane b. 1873, Florence b. 1875, Joseph Francis b. 1878 and Alexander (Alec) b. 1881. All the children appear on the 1881 census, except Alec, as he wasn't born yet. By the 1891 census, Joseph & Flora have disappeared, the girls are out working in other homes and the boys are being raised by (as yet unrelated) two families in Main A Dieu. Joseph Francis is being raised by Susan & Catherine KENNEDY and Alec by Joseph and Lucy MacDONALD. Lucy MacDONALD is a sister of Susan & Catherine KENNEDY. I don't know the relationship of the KENNEDY's nor the MacDONALD's to us. Joe MacDONALD was from PEI. I don't know what happened to Joseph & Flora. Alec EDWARDS is my great grandfather. The Beaton Institute has newspapers from the area and time, but they are on film or hard copy and I'm in British Columbia :) Any help is appreciated, TIA. <font color=#AAAAFF><B>When you do genealogy, you do history by accident.</B> <I>Deanna Fisher</I></font>
I have an Elsie May WILLAR b. 1908, d. 1981. Her second husband was Rene LaHaise, who predeceased her unknown death date. I THINK Rene was from Ottawa. I'm looking for ANY information of Rene LaHAISE. Thank You, Pam

Cape Breton Deaths courtesy of CAPE BRETON GENEALOGY & HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION VISIT OUR WEBSITE - <http://www.cbgen.org/ <http://www.cbgen.org/>>www.cbgen.org <http://www.cbgen.org/> NEW MEMBERS WELCOME Inverness Oran Deaths November 26, 2014 Wednesday There were 6 obituaries published today MAY, John Middleton - 89 yrs MACISAAC, Alexander “Kenny” - 70 yrs MACISAAC, Howard Joseph - 64 yrs MACDOUGALL, Anne Isabell - 76 yrs GILLIS, James Gerard - 65 yrs NELSON, Lars Degn - 86 yrs MAY John Middleton May, March 17th, 1925, New York City – November 12th, 2014 Inverness, Cape Breton Island, (by way of London, England and Bloomfield, Connecticut). While on vacation visiting family in England, the US stock market crashed, and Jack and Ethel May raised John in Barnett, what is now North London. John was a good student and excelled at maths, and after completing school worked as an accountant at S. Maw, Son and Sons. In 1940, John joined the Home Guard to defend England, trained in weapons and tactics along with other boys under the instructions of veterans of The Great War. In 1942, at his father's suggestion, John enlisted in the US Army Air Corps, and decided his most valuable military skill was the ability to keep books in pounds, shillings, and pence. His responsibilities as bookkeeper for the officers mess expanded to include trips to Scotland to purchase Scotch. He served in a replacement unit through France and Germany. Following the war, John returned to New York City to, as he said, "study the romance of accountancy" at Columbia University. It was during his studies that John met and married a young sculptress, Stephanie Middleton. As spontaneously impulsive as he was methodically plodding, John was absolutely devoted to Stephanie her whole life. As he phrased it after her passing, "I made all the important decisions, like what we would have for breakfast, and Stephanie made the unimportant decisions, like what country we would live in." After a brief stint with Price Waterhouse, John and Stephanie moved to Hartford, Connecticut, where he worked for Aetna Life and Casualty for 20 years. John raised his two children, Geoffrey and Elizabeth, as he rose through the ranks of accountants and bean counters from rows of desks to the border cubicles, to frosted glass partitions by the windows. By the age of 48, John had a private ground floor corner office with board table, couch and plush chairs at head office, and his printed signature appeared on every check the Aetna issued. Before his 50th birthday as a Senior Vice President, he walked away from it all, on Stephanie's suggestion that the family move to Margaree Harbour. For the next 28 years, John ran the Schooner Village Gift Shop and Schooner Restaurant in Margaree Harbour. John dressed in his kilts, his thin corporate ties obscured under an unruly beard. John was a living landmark greeting visitors and posing with the blue-haired ladies who poured out of the endless tour buses, increasingly immersed in the language and music of his highland Scots ancestors, remaking himself, as he re-sculpted his expanding miniature armies of Napoleonic Wars .The collection of toy soldiers he had begun with Stephanie's enthusiastic support as University students in Manhattan grew by 2001 to historically accurate displays of events in the Waterloo campaign containing 6000 figures. The expropriation of Stephanie and John's business to accommodate the new bridge signalled his retirement. Throughout his life, John sought to serve his world, with the United World Federalists (World Peace Through World Law), Bloomfield Open Spaces Committee, Alvin B. Wood Scholarship, and supporting Stephanie's anti-war efforts in Connecticut, Cape Breton Landowners Against the Spray, Margaree Tourism Association and Heritage River Committee, Save our Seas and Shores and other tourism and environmental groups in Nova Scotia. Following Stephanie's death in 2003, dementia increasingly laid hold of his mind, robbing him of his memories and reason. He spent his final years in the exceptionally wonderful hands of the kind caregivers at Cheticamp's Sacred Heart Medical Clinic and Inverness' Inverary Manor. On Monday, November 17th Gampo Abbey conducted a Sukhavati ceremony for John, attended by his family. John is survived by his children Elizabeth May (Ottawa and Sidney, BC), Geoffrey May and daughter-in-law Rebecca-Lynne (Margaree Harbour); granddaughter Cate May Burton (Halifax); grandson Andrew MacDonald (Ottawa) and two great granddaughters, Mary Jane Alexis, and Grace Marguerite (Ottawa). To honour John's memory, donations to the Green Party of Canada would be most appropriate. A chuid do Pharras dha 'anam MacISAAC Kenneth Alexander “Kenny” MacIsaac , age 70, passed away on Tuesday, November 18th, 2014, in Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital. Born in Stellarton on April 26th, 1944, he was a son of the late Mike and Sarah (MacLean) MacIsaac. Kenny was a member of St. Peter’s Parish, Port Hood and worked as a fisherman’s helper for many years. He never married but enjoyed life and a good game of crib. He is survived by his brother Angus (Barbara) Port Hood, as well as several nieces and nephews. Kenny was predeceased by his sisters Mary (late Lauchie) Walker, Catherine “Kitty” (late Bernie) Webb; and brothers Michael (late Beulah) and Donald “Skid”. He will be sadly missed by all who came to know him. Cremation has taken place. Visitation was held on Monday, November 24th in Port Hood and Area Resting Place.

MacISAAC It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Howard Joseph MacIsaac at Kingston General Hospital on November 14th, 2014. Beloved husband of Wendy (nee Michon) Mac Isaac; adored Papa of daughters Lindsey, Kelly, and Jaimie Mac Isaac and sons-in-law Mike McDonald and David Hobbs. He follows his father and mother, John Leo Mac Isaac and Wilena (Billie “Jack D”) Rankin Macdonald; step-father Scottie McLellan and his beautiful granddaughter Lucy Ann McDonald. Remembered fondly as brother of Ann (Michael) White, Kit (Mocca) Moxley, Debbie (Peter) Gillis and John Mac Isaac. Born in Inverness, Cape Breton on May 10th, 1950, Howie was an Islander through and through; Cape Breton was truly the home of his heart. A loving cousin, uncle, and in-law to his large extended family throughout Canada and the US, he always showed true Celtic spirit, welcoming anyone with his “down home” hospitality; Howie always “had the kettle on.” He had a quick wit, an infectious laugh, and was always ready for a good one-liner. He worked hard his whole life for his family, but enjoyed playing video games, having movie marathons, and working on his “honey-do” list after his retirement in 2010. Most of all, he was a loving and generous Papa and husband who took great pride in his family. His kindness and unconditional generosity were felt by all he met, and he will be deeply missed by all who knew him. We are grateful for the time we shared and the memories we have to cherish. The family received friends at Gordon F. Tompkins Funeral Home, Township Chapel, in Kingston on Wednesday, November 19th. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the MS Society of Canada, Atlantic Division. “i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart).” - e.e. cummings MacDOUGALL I regret to announce the passing of my sister Anne Isabell MacDougall, age 76, who passed away on Friday, November 21st, 2014, in the Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital, after a long but courageous fight with cancer.

Kevin is survived by his son, Andrew (Patrick); fuzzy grandbabies, Maggie, Minerva and Martha; sister, June MacKeigan; brother, Henry (Greta); sister-inlaw, Helen, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Known to most as a prominent union leader, or troublemaker to some, Kevin held numerous jobs in a variety of fields. He was everything from a steel worker, building inspector, dog catcher, meter man, and a national representative for the C.U.P.E. Over his many years Kevin worked with the Boys & Girls Club, was a member of the Kennel Club, and the Nova Scotia Labour Congress, a parachuting fanatic, and an avid N.D.P supporter. On top of everything he has done for the community he was the parade marshall for many Santa Claus parades and sat on a great deal of arbitration boards. Dad always fought for what he believed in, never backed down and encouraged others to do the same! Picket lines were walked and signs were made in all hopes of change, equality, and better pay. When Dad was not tending to the pool (that he never swam in), he could be found “fixing” computers, playing solitaire, and always finding something for me to do. He also enjoyed a good stiff drink with the neighborhood men as they sat and listened as he recalled labour events. He educated so many on their rights and was always willing to give advice and help where he could. Three years ago, Kevin lost the love of his life, soul mate and rock, his wife Sandra. He was predeceased by three children in infancy; brother, Gerry; sister, Ruth Tutty; brothers-in-law, Glen Tutty and Doug MacKeigan.
