Hi Sheila, thanks for your prompt reply. Albina Yeo was married to Winslow Ezra Patterson. I believe they met in the USA . They would be my husband's Great grandparents. They are both buried in Margretville Nova Scotia. Margretville is sometimes spelt with an 's' on Margret. I have even seen it spelled Margaretsville, take your pick. Albina lived in the US the last part of her life, with a daughter, and died there but was returned to Canada to be buried with her husband Winslow Patterson. My mother in law has been amazed at what I could find on her Grandmother. I have always been interested as she was from Lot 16 PEI as was my Campbell relatives and I wanted to see if they had mingled at one time. We are living in Pictou County Nova Scotia now as my husband's job moved here. Thanks for all the Yeo info , I have really enjoyed surfing your site. Thanks again Sylvia Warner

Direct Descendants of Robert & Rose Cory through to Linda Monroe (ne Mountford)

Hello Sheila, You are probably aware of a wonderful book, 'Westcountrymen in Prince Edward's Isle' by Basil Greenhill and Ann Giffard, published first in 1967. My edition is a University of Toronto paperback from 1975. The Yeos figure prominently in this book. My grandparents were Robert and Daisy Yeo, Lot 16 and Port Hill; Daisy was a Monkley. Their children: Lina (my mother), Oswald, Sadie, Ethelwyn, George, and Harriet who died a young child. Our sons know next to nothing about their ancestors. But evidently Chris was deeply affected by our long ago Green Park trip. He surprised me by alluding to seafaring ancestors in the preface of his doctorate on ancient trade (Other son Jon in China). If you're in touch with other younger members of the family, Chris can be found at the Pierpont Morgan Library NYC where he's an Assyriologist/Archaeologist. (He likes digging around for things too) Is there a family tree available? I would love to participate however possible.

A couple of years ago when Aunt Ethel (Fredericton) and her daughter Harriet were visiting me in Blue Hill, ME, I broached the subject of trying to put together a little reunion--also getting some family history together. We didn't get very far. The sisters told such wonderful stories when they'd get together on the Island; I'm sure Aunt Ethel would be a great resource, as she's stayed in close contact with friends and relatives there. (Example: one early morning Harriet was awakened by the sound of her mother's voice on the clock radio: Aunt Ethel was being interviewed re the history of "the Dobie" on the other side of the St John R. from Fredericton's downtown). . Regards, Linda Monroe (daughter of Lina Yeo who left the Island for nursing school in Portland, Maine)

Here's another PS: when writing our sons' (Christopher Mountfort and Jonathan Edward) information to you, I didn't include PhD's after their names. Don't know if it's appropriate for family trees. Linda Monroe

    Nancy's comments

    Dear Sheila: I found your web site today on the Yeo family. My Yeo lineage is basically the same as Linda Munroe's but the last few generations are a little different. Her grandfather(Robert) and my grandfather(Earl) were brothers. If you need any help on updating family records, I would love to help. We have a big mystery on my great great grandmother (Nancy Prowse). I have been trying to get more information on her family and haven't had any luck. The story about Nancy Prowse is very interesting as Samuel and her eloped and were married in the Hartland parish. She was discommunicated from the family as she married into a lower class. To add to the story, a gold soverign would appear in the window each time Samuel and Nancy had a child even though there was not direct communication from her family. If you need any help, please let me know. Nancy Yeo 483 Keppoch Road Stratford, P.E.I. C1B 2J8 (902)569-3478

Can anyone help Garnet ?

Subject: Yeo, Lewis, Jones family tree

Good Morning: On my research of my family history I have came to a road block. Margaret Jane Yeo was the mother of my grand mother Ada Gertrude Lewis born May 20, 1898 in Salisbury New Brunswick. The parents of Margaret Jane Yeo was Lawrence Yeo born Feb. 07/1840 in England, and Margaret Catharine Harkness also know as Margaret Jane born January 13,1842 in PEI. She would be my Great Great Grandmother. Would you have any information on who her parents were and where they were born. I would appreciate any help you could assist me with in determining the history on Margaret Catharine Harkness. I have reserched every possible avenue that I can think of for this information and keep coming up empty. Garnet Jones
