    3. From: bscccook@bell.net [mailto:bscccook@bell.net] Sent: Saturday, March 30, 2019 1:56 PM To: Jim Jackson Subject: Obituary - Russell(Morris), Sonia Louise The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, Nova Scotia, March 5, 2019 Sonia Louise Russell (Morris) It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden death of Sonia Louise Russell (Morris), age 88, at her home in Halifax. Daughter of the late Samuel and Henrietta Morris, she was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland. She is survived by her children, Marian, Andrew (Megan), Mark (Nikah) and David (Cindy); grandchildren, Justin, Andrew, Kevin, Chenoa, Simone, Gaby, Connor, Liam; and great-grandchildren, Jessie, Kayla, Gavin and Nova. She was predeceased by husbands, Douglas William Russell and Don Brewer; and by son-in-law, Patrick Burnett. Sonia first earned a B Pharm degree and ran a small pharmacy in Lon don, UK, with her husband, Douglas. While raising her four children, she taught high school mathematics and science, earned a Master's degree and a PhD, and then fulfilled her lifelong ambition of becoming a physician. At the age of 53 she qualified as a psychiatrist and continued to practice into her late 70's. Sonia's keen curiosity and love of travel took her around the world, from Delhi to Machu Picchu to Tanzania to China. Her lively conversation was a delight to family and good friends including Mary, Myrna, Nell and Patricia. She was a true intellect and student of the world and enjoyed learning and discussing everything from astronomy to the natural world to politics and religion. She enjoyed reading, cooking, bridge and a good game of Scrabble. After retirement, she volunteered in a variety of settings including the IWK and Dalhousie Medical School. Sonia's greatest joys were with her family. She enjoyed nothing more than spending time with her children, daughters-in-law, and her grandchildren. As her hearing deteriorated, Sonia often said that she loved nothing better than simply watching her family enjoying each other's company. She was a loving, proud, generous, and kind mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. She was much loved and will be sorely missed. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to a charity of your choice. We would like to thank Parkland at the Gardens for their dedicated and loving care during Sonia's time there and for their compassionate and supportive response towards her family after her death. In keeping with Sonia's wishes, cremation has already taken place at Harbourside Crematorium. A Celebration of Life will be held at a future date to be determined.

On March 4, 2019, "Rod" at age 90, began his ultimate journey following a courageous battle with Lewy Body Dementia. Born in Glasgow, Scotland on October 2, 1928, he immigrated to Canada on the ship Melita to settle in Nova Scotia. Stewiacke, Amherst and Waverley were some of the many communities he called home until settling with his wife, Olive in Eastern Passage, building a home and raising a family there. Predeceased by his Irish mother, Mary Josephine (Harrington Cronin) and British father, Eric James Henman, he was the youngest boy of their eight children. Rod is survived by his older sister, Doreen (Robert) Stump, now 97, Oliver, B.C. Gone ahead of him to prepare the way were siblings, Oliver, Catherine "Kay" (Tony) Lipton, John William "Bill" (Julia), Eileen (Douglas) Carter, Charles (Marjorie), and Rosemary (Al) Chaisson. In addition to his immediate family, he was extremely connected and proud of all his many nieces and nephews. Rod was a dedicated worker in the field of aviation. He started his career with Fairey Aviation where he met Olive. Later, he would move on to IMP Group Ltd. where he was a founding member of the Aerospace Division, retiring in 1988 from his role as Vice President and General Manager of Aircraft R & O Division. He was lucky to have spent many leisure years beyond retirement with family, especially his beloved grandchildren, cherishing all their accomplishments. He enjoyed walking the boardwalk, gardening, berry picking, and buying lottery tickets. He was a competitive sportsman and loved the outdoors. He loved to play in the annual washer toss, toboggan down the Shearwater hill, watch the kids perform or throw a little ball with them. He was a proud Toronto Maple Leafs fan with a potential to become a supporter of the Carolina Hurricanes. A man of great faith, he was a loyal member of St. Andrew's Roman Catholic Church in Eastern Passage where he held many roles. He was one of the first Eucharistic Ministers to be commissioned in the Halifax area. He served on many boards: Eastern Passage Credit Union, Halifax County-Bedford District School Board trustee, and Aviation Council of Nova Scotia to name a few. Surviving him are his "darling" wife, Olive (Myers) of 56 years, and children, Therese (Gary) Phillips, Louise (Francois) Poirier, Timothy (Sandra Hartley) and Anthony (Melanie); and beloved grandchildren, Samantha, Tegan, Alexah, Lauren, Josee, Jessica, Victoria, Luke, Brent, Riley and Lily. He prepared us well, quietly leading by example. His twinkle will be missed by each and every one of us. Dad's health was taken from him in November 2017 but he was fortunate to still share many positive times with his family. We appreciate all those people who supported us with information, compassion, care, friendship and more importantly ice cream for Dad in both the medical community and beyond. Too many to name, your touch was never lost to Dad. We are deeply grateful. Visitation will be held in Eastern Passage Community Funeral Home on Friday, March 8th 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Funeral mass will take place on Saturday, March 9th at 1:30 p.m. in St. Andrew's Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Passage.

Born in Scotland, she was the daughter of William & Williamina Smith (Gibson). Catriona is survived by her husband, Donald of 57 years; sister, Wilma Nelson of Shotts, Scotland (husband Robert, son Willis, late son Russell); children, Paul and Angela; and grandchildren, Mark and Laura. Catriona grew up in Shotts, Scotland where her father was an enterprising coal miner who went on to own several shops and restaurants. As a girl, she was often called upon to work in her father's shop. The family attended Shotts Baptist church where she later married. She excelled in school attending the prestigious Hamilton Academy where she enjoyed learning Latin, Greek, Spanish and French. She continued her education at the Scottish College of Commerce (now Strathclyde University). Catriona met the love of her life, Donald, at a Christian youth meeting in Glasgow, Scotland. They fell madly in love and married when she was 19. After a short stay with family, the couple moved to Glasgow where Catriona studied teaching and graduated from Jordanhill University. They lived with their German Shepard and two Siamese cats. Catriona taught elementary school in Scotland until son Paul was born. Shortly after daughter Angela was born, the family emigrated to Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada where Catriona owned and operated a kindergarten and taught for years as an elementary art consultant. Endowed with a lovely soprano voice, she took part in musicals and operas, did solo gigs, and was always part of a choral group. She once sang on the CBC show Ceilidh and she was locally known for her performances in the Three Penny Opera & Carmen. She also sang as a soloist and in the choir at Rothesay Baptist Church. After a trying time, Catriona was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. This struggle resulted in an early retirement and a deepening relationship with God and family. Gradually, her health improved. Catriona was a founding member of Kennebecasis Baptist Church where she was the choir director for seven years and produced musicals. She volunteered for the MS Society, for the Palliative Care Unit at Saint John General, as a literacy coach for adults, the Saint John welcome wagon, and as a tour guide. In 2001, the family moved to Halifax for Donald's work. Catriona continued to be involved in chorale choirs, volunteering on various condo committees, active in Grace Chapel church, and enjoyed her grandchildren. She enjoyed travels to Florida, Barbados and the UK, where she met many dear friends. Her Christian faith was important to her and she shared God's love with others through prayer and loving acts. Visitation with the family will be held at the J A Snow Funeral Home on Tuesday, January 15, at 2-4 PM and 6-8 PM. A service will be held on January 16 at 11 AM followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice.

    3. Hello again. Someone from the list very nicely pointed out a significant typo I made in my previous email. I wrote that Jonathan Kearsley emigrated to the US ca 1837 when in fact he emigrated ca 1737. I am very sorry for the confusion. Alexandra

    3. Hello fellow researchers in Scotland: I am researching one of my ancestors, Jonathan Kearsley, who is said to have emigrated from his homeland in Scotland to live in America ca 1837. While I know his descendants well I know nothing of his ancestors. I believe the Kearsleys originated in the Durham, England area; a few broke off and moved to Scotland as did his family. Jonathan was born in 1718 & left Scotland when in his early twenties, cutting all family ties. We don't know his parents or any family members. We don't know where he lived. We do know he was well educated and came from a strict Presbyterian background. To start I am working with the assumption the family didn't go any farther north than Edinburgh or Glasgow. His family Bible was printed in Edinburgh (if that indicates anything) so I'm starting to look in southern Scotland. I'm hoping for a birth or christening record ca 1718, maybe a family history with a noticeable gap or an historian that may remember a missing family member leaving home after a feud. It goes without saying that if you have leads in another part of Scotland I I want to hear those as well. I'm trying to contact genealogical societies, libraries, mailing lists & other groups to get the word out. It's a long shot, I know. I have also started a "one-name" study for Kearsleys through The Guild and hope eventually, through DNA testing, to get enough participants, to compare Keasleys in northern England & the United States with ones in Scotland. I need men with the Kearsley surname willing to do Y-chromosome testing. I have set up a Kearsley study with Family Tree DNA and welcome your participation. Please contact me about this. If you have already had a Y-DNA testing I can easily pull it into my study. . Please contact me with any information, or questions you might have or if you have any better suggestions as to how to approach this. I know there is someone out there who can break this wide open.
