Frances Bishop
Date: 12 January 1999 E-mail updated May 22, 2002 Thank you!

My grandmother's brother A.G. POTHIER is said to have owned a store in North Battleford. He was known as 'Willy' by family members in Tusket Wedge/Wedgeport, Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia. His given names were Andre Guillaume [Andrew William]. His wife was Maggie/Margaret TAYLOR [?] and their daughters were Lottie and Marguerite. The time frame was pre-1950 and possibly as early as 1910. Can anyone direct me to resources such as newspapers, directories or chamber of commerce archives, so that I can begin to search for evidence of his background as a merchant? Is there a library or archive in the area which might have a personal name index? I would appreciate addresses and any other help along this line. With many thanks,

I could not see the relevent lookup offered, but wonder what you could suggest for a start to locate family of: Elizabeth (Bessie) Shaw - wife of Jack Webster - who supposedly died 13 Jan 1931 at Biggar, Sask Known children - Isabella, Jack, Matthew. In B. C. my grandmother died in 1930 and I am able to access the index data from the B.C. Archives and copy print the full event in the Vancouver Public Library for 40 cents. Bessie was the daughter of my grandmother's sister. My grandmother died young with certain health issues and altho her sister lived to 69, I am wondering what caused the death of her daughter at such a young age.
Any suggestions re obits, names in current phone books etc would be a great start.
Thank you very much,

I'm looking for any information on a Gerald Ferris settled in Sask., what yr. I do not know he had married and had three children Lillian, Doreen and Lawrence. His wife I believe was native and had died shortly after her son Lawrence was born. I remember as kid that we had visited the Battleford area, with my parents. My mom's name is Doreen and she married my dad in Fort St John B.C. His name was Frank Hunter. I recall visiting their (my mom's) old homestead. So I believe there should be a land title in the name of Gerald Ferris(his nationality was English). Gerald Ferris left that area when the kids were quite young and settle in Northern B.C. around 100 mile house, of which he own a ranch. I would appreciate any help on the above
