Searching for info on ancestors of my mother Mary Gertrude Kirby, born in Newfoundland on 29 October 1905.
The following is known: Joseph Kerby married Jemmima (?). They had 4 children - Bridget 1838, Susan 1841, Elizabeth 1842, and William Wagg 1849, all born and buried at Kirby's Cove Newfoundland.
