Thanks for your reply. My husband's maternal gr'mother was Mary Louise Shaw - the d/o Albert & Mary (Leahey) Shaw. I found the marriage record of Mary & Albert, and it showed her born Hbr Grace, NFLD & her parents names as Richard (a seaman) & Mary Leahey... & said on Oct.3, 1906 when she married in Hantsport, NS that she was living here. I was just looking for any possible info on her parents, siblings, etc. I wondered when she moved to NS from NFLD, where parents lived/ died, etc. (Mary died on Jan.17, 1955 of a heart attack at Spencers Island, NS. Her husband had died 15 Apr. 1925 of double pneumonia. They had lived in a house that was right on the beach there, & raised a family of 6 children.) Thanks to you I now know her mom's maiden name. Anything else you could advise would be greatly appreciated.
