I have been researching the name ARMOUR in Nova Scotia and have found the Ella Armour married a Henry Pontifract..
...the 1920 census shows Henry Pontifract still at home age 20 with his parents.His fathers name is hard to figure out,but says born in England.The mother was born in Nova Scotia as were her parents.
Ella and Henry Pontifractare found in the Lowell,Middlesex,Mass USA area.
And at one time or another I saw reference to Pontifract coming from Belgium...
My interest lays in finding the death of Ella (Armour) Pontifract and her burial place.
Heny Pontifract died in Florida age 80 ish.
I believe they had a son Robert A. Pontifract who married a Virginia...Chelmsford area of Lowell Mass.
Hope some of this helps someone.
