Date: August 5, 1997
Name: Nicholas Howard
E-Mail: njhoward@msn.com
Counties: Unknown
Surnames: FOLEY
Query: My great-grandparents are James H. and Elizabeth Foley. According to the 1880 US Census for New York, James H. Foley, 42 years old in 1880, a ship carpenter, reported his birthplace as Nova Scotia (locality not given). Elizabeth Foley, 24 years old in 1880, a housewife, also reported her birthplace as Nova Scotia (locality not given). Both James and Elizabeth report that their parents were Nova Scotia natives. The census records show two children, Agnes, 6, and Everett, 2. Both are shown as being born in Nova Scotia. Thus, they may have emigrated from Nova Scotia in 1878 or 1879. (The 1880 US Census was as of April 1, 1880.) My grandmother, Margaret Foley Donohue, was born in 1882. While her death certificate lists her birthplace as New York, my mother told me that her grandmother (Elizabeth Foley) had returned to Nova Scotia to visit her family. Due to bad weather preventing a return journey to New York, she gave birth to Margaret in Nova Scotia. Also listed as living with the Foley family in the 1880 Census was one Willian Thompson, a ship carpenter and a Nova Scotia native (parents also born in Nova Scotia). I do not know if there was a family relationship.
If anyone is familiar with this family, please e-mail me or write to me at: Nick Howard, 620 Peachtree St., NE. Apt. 913, Atlanta, GA 30309.

Query: I am looking for any record of my grandfather, Joseph Franklin Weatherbee. The only information that I have is that he was born in Nova Scotia, Canada and came into the U.S. in the 1920's without records of his birth. He allegedly lied to the U.S. about his records being burned in a courthouse fire in Boston Mass.. He married my grandmother Muriel Fenlason in 1928. Together they had two daughters, Jean and Phyllis, and one son (my father) Joseph Franklin Weatherbee Jr.. We are not certain if my grandfather used his real name when he entered the Navy, so we are hoping if anyone has heard of the Weatherbee name in Nova Scotia or anywhere else in Canada, they will respond to my query and possibly help us move forward with our life long search. We have found several Weatherbees in the State of Maine, but we cannot seem to find anyone that knows of my grandfather.
