She became pregnant in the spring of 1927 by William MASON, also evidently from Nova Scotia, and gave birth on 22 Dec 1927 in Jamaica Plains, MA, USA at the Talitha Cumi Nursing Home and Hospital to a dau. whom Alexandria named Rhoda. She kept the baby for four months until an adoption could be arranged. Rhoda was adopted by Harold R. & Sadie (Lothrop) DOMINA of Vermont. They changed Rhoda's name to Dorothy. The woman responsible for the adoption arrangements maintained some correspondence between the natural and adoptive mothers for some years. Dorothy, who is still living, has a letter which the lady wrote stating that Alexandria was very pretty, a nice and intelligent woman who was fond of her Rhoda and interested in her continuing life. William Mason was also described as a nice intelligent fellow. What happened to either Alexandria McKenzie or William Mason is not known. Any information would be appreciated.
My intention in pursuing this is NOT necessarily to bring about any kind of reunion with subsequent relatives but rather to complete ancestry charts for descendants of Dorothy. Dorothy m. 2 Nov 1919 Derby VT Everett Anson, son of William A. & Lillian (Swanson) Willard. They had four children the youngest of whom is Sally, b. 20 Feb 1959 she m. my son, Nathan Jon Burbank. Sally is a doctor of internal medicine and Nathan a musician. They live in Nashville, Tennessee, with their two children.

Doug Goff, While researching the MacPhee line, I came across your query in the Halifax area.

If you cant get through my email,my husbands is discodave@auracom.col.mail.com .
I am researching the family of MacDonalds from Trenton, N.S., formerly of Judique Creignish, and found out I may have relatives in the Amherst area, I believe on the MacDonald's side of Archibald MacDonald married to Flora (MacIassac). The great Aunts are Margaret and Kay and are presently residing in Amherst, N.S. I remember Margaret visiting us at our home in Reserve Mines C.B. and would bring us clothes. They may have been cousins of my mother Catherine MacDonald of Duke Street Trenton, N.S., who was married to my father Malcolm MacPhee. Mom's sisters are Anne (Harold) MacDonald of Troy , Port Hastings and Theresa (Wilfred) Works of Stellarton. Alex, the only brother, died in Trenton, N.S. in 1992 and my mother Catherine died Jan. 29, 1984.

Alister Macdonald --- Margaret Gillis Barra, Scotland—they had 5 children, but never came to Canada----Michael, James, Donald, Roderick, Flora.

Surnames: JACKSON / MOORE
Query: I am trying to invewtigate the heritage of my grandmother. Her name was Mable (Jackson-Moore)Shanks. All that I know about my grandmother is that she was born in Nova Scotia in the 1890's to an unmarried woman with the last name Jackson. Due to the shame associated with illigitimacy her grandfather and grandmother raised her as their own and gave her the last name of Jackson. When my great-grandmother did marry it was to a man with the last name Moore, giving my grandmother the name of Mable Jackson-Moore. Mable's real father did keep relations with her until she was around thirteen when he asked Mable to move out west (apparently Alberta?) with him. Unfortunately this was not allowed and they never saw each other again. Mable died in the early 1980's (aged 93) and took this man's name to the grave with her. None of my aunt's or uncle's apparently knows the man's name either. Can anyone out there help? Does anyone have a relative from the Nova Scotia area (born mid 1800 area) that fathered a child with a young girl (miaden name Jackson in her mid to late teens) and then eventually moved west? This is a major family secret that could help answer a lot of questions.
