Transcriber's Notes:

Annabella Pike Martin was the daughter of Ambrose and Mary Pike. She was born in Harbour Grace 13 August 1862. Her husband was Frederick H Martin, a son of James and I believe Patience Martin. Frederick was born about 1866 in Harbour Grace and died almost 10 years to the day after Annabella on 14 July 1933 in Harbour Grace.

Frederick and Annabella had eight children (Herbert, Ella, Frederick, William Pike, May, Henry, Mary Elizabeth and Lucinda). Ella died in 1893 and Henry died in 1896.

At this time in May 2010 I believe that:
Herbert married an Ada B. ???. He died in 1949 and is buried in St. Johnís with wife Ada and son Milton H. Martin
William Pike Martin married Agnes Leslie
May Martin married Edward George Saunders
