Dear Norman,
This is the first time I have visited this site but found it very interesting especially the info on my grandparents Norma and Edna Trimper.

RE: Snow Doane Family connections
Dear Norman,

Thanks for your reply with your descent from Captain Jabez Snow. I did have a copy of his will. While his son Sylvanus petitioned for land in Wakefield Parish Carleton County in 1814 along with his brothers Josiah and Edward, he never moved there and remained in N.S. I never understood why the brothers wanted to move given the land holdings they inherited from their father. But Edward and Josiah and their families moved there in 1815. My descent from Capt. Jabez is via Edward>Joshua>Charles Beardsley>Sarah May Snow (my paternal grandmother. Her only brother was killed on Nov 11, 1917 at the Battle of Passchendaele, thus ending a direct Snow line from Nicolas and Constance Hopkins.

My wife and I visited the graves of Capt. Jabez and his wife in 2005 and found the following:

From Listings in Stoney Beach Cemetery, Lower Granville:

77 A Snow

Elizabeth, wife of Capt. Jabez Snow and native of Boston, d. Jan 2, 1812 in her 79th year.

78 A

Capt. Jabez Snow, native of Boston, d. Feb 8, 1812 aged 79

Transcriptions on these gravestones, visited in August 2005 by John and Linda Noble read as follows:
"In memory of Capt. Jabez Snow, native of Boston who departed this life Feb 8, 1812 in the 79th year of his age" There is also an unreadable text at the base of the stones.

The unreadable text at the bottom of both stones reads as follows: "My flesh shall slumber in the ground

Till the last trumpet's joyful sound
Then burst the chains with sweet surprise And in my Savior's image rise."

It comes from:
" Then shall we hear and see and know, All we desir'd and wish'd below,

And every power find sweet employ, In that eternal world of joy.

Our flesh shall slumber in the ground, Till the last trumpet's joyful sound,
Then burst the chains with sweet surprize, And in our Saviour's image rise."
Source: Prince Hall, A Charge Delivered to the Brethren of the African Lodge On the 25th of June, 1792 (Boston: Bible and Heart, 1792).
(information supplied by Harry MacKay, Ottawa, a descendant of Jabez via his son Sylvanus).

I spent 35 + years in DFAIT before retiring in 2001.

Snow Doane Family connections
You have posted that Elizabeth Doane wife of Capt. Jabez Snow IV was your 5x gr grandmother. My grandmother Noble was a Snow descended from Capt. Jabez vis his son Edward. The Snows go back to Mayflower passenger Constance Hopkins who married Nicolas Snow and the Doanes are connected back to Mayflower passenger Thomas Rogers. Capt. Jabez's mother Elizabeth Paine was descended from Mayflower passenger William Brewster. How are you connected to Snow family?

Longley Cemetery
Hello, I was viewing the Longley Cemetery and noticed you took a photo of this cemetery, my question is this: The Annapolis County GenWeb projects describes this cemetery as the "Paradise Lane Longley Cemetery which I believe is located in Paradise, Nova Scotia and is off of Paradise Lane but the right-up or location given in the cemetery description says it is located in Bellisle? Who ever set up this cemetery did not include a map of its location. You must know this cemetery location because you were there so could you please clarify the discrepancy between these two descriptions for this cemetery.

RE: Lydia Parker Nichols (1840-1902)
It's been a while since you left me a message regarding my inquiry for Lydia Parker Nichols (my 2nd ggrandmother) from Bear River, Nova Scotia. I have new information on her.

You are right- she was married once before marrying Evander Nichols. I obtained a copy of a marriage bond for her and William Colter (aka Coulter) dated May 12, 1860. The event took place in Nictaux, Annapolis, NS and they were married by Baptist minister W.G. Parker (Willard Graves Parker), brother of Church Morse Parker. The agreement states that both bride and groom were from Nictaux and is witnessed by Andrew Parker. (I have found 2 Andrew Parkers alive at the time in that area.)

Lydia and William Colter had 4 children together. If you want more info, please let me know.

Hello N.E. -
I was just writing to say hello. It looks like we share a 7th great grandmother and grandfather - William Walker and Sarah Goodenow.
Thought I would connect if you had any interest also in comparing notes.

Lydia Parker Nichols (1840-1902)
My 2nd great grandmother, Lydia Parker Nichols lived from 1840-1902 per her gravestone in Berwick Cemetery in Berwick, NS. She married Evander Nichols in Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, year uncertain. One of her son's marriage records states that his mother was born in Bear River, Nova Scotia, but I do not know who her parents or siblings were. I believe she is closely related to Solomon S. Parker, but can't prove anything yet.

Any information anyone can provide would be so appreciated!

RE: Obadiah Pulley - Bear River, Mt. Hope Cemetery
Hi NOrman - Wonderful picture (photo shopping) job. Thank you and of course I don't mind. I've added another one of her that I thought you might like to see.
Wendy arrives in NS tomorrow night from Germany where she is posted so I'll fill her in re our contact. Thanks again.
Oh by the way - I had forgotten that "Aunt Mag's" mother was a Rosencrantz. That's my descendent - my great great g/mother was a Rosencrantz. So I'm on that track looking for info.
Bye for now, Linda Miller

RE: Obadiah Pulley - Bear River, Mt. Hope Cemetery
Hi - yes this is my great uncle Obadiah Pulley and his wife Margaret - my mother (age 90) refers to her still as Aunt Mag. I had another picture of just her which I gave to Mike Parker who is also her gg grandson (or is it one g?). Anyway - yes that is Margaret Berry Parker.
Is there a chance you knew my sister Wendy Miller? Seems to me she went to school with a Norman Morgan. We lived in South Milford. Anyway, you never know who you're related to anymore.
Bye for now, Linda Miller
