Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy for most of my life thanks to my Aunt Iola who wrote and contributed to a number of family histories. Lewis and I have always taken pictures of grave markers as a means of documenting our families. Last year this interest took us to Hants County, Nova Scotia. I have been posting the cemetery pictures we took on Ancestry and received a note suggesting I post my pictures on Find A Grave and here I am!

I would be happy to transfer any memorial page that I created to anyone who is closer to the person honored than I am. I welcome corrections and am happy to make additions.

Taylor-Redden Shoes
Robert Taylor was my great great grandfather. He had a shoe factory st Duke and Brunswick St. I think he also had a company called Taylor-Redden shoes on Barrington and Sackville streets. I was wondering if these buildings, or perhaps the facades, still remain and if there is some kind of plaque.

Waterville Cemetery
Hello Barbara,
A little more of Hants Co. geography. Waterville was the area now known as Upper & Lower Vaughan.
There is no Waterville Cemetery as such. The people you have in Waterville Cemetery are actually in Lakeview Baptist Cemetery. In the former area of Waterville there are 3 Cemeteries. Also I would take the Wile memorials if you want to transfer them
Regards, Barrie

The dates on stones are sometimes not correct. I use the death records as recorded at the courthouse of which could be wrong instead. Thanks for drawing my attention to this. My grandmothers death record is different from her stone and her birth date is also wrong. BUT~~On her death certificate it says she was buried in the town she died in which is wrong. The Cemetery name is the same but in a different town~~~~~~~~~

Elizabeth McLean (Willis) Davis
Elizabeth is my ggrandmother and according to my records she was 6 jan 1840 pos in Maitland as my grandmother Martha Louis Davis said they lived there and when the children were about grown they moved to Windsor.
She had 2 sisters who married American fellows they were Charlotte Sarah Davis b Apr 1866 in Windsor and married Otis Tolman 1897 in Sharon, Norfolk, Massachusetts and the other sister is Edith Agnes b 25 May 1879 either in Maitland or Windsor she married George MacKinnon 1941 Pittsfield, Berkshire, Massachusetts
My grandmother we called Meme lived with my grandfather Frederick Lawrence Moss b in East Ham Essex, England and he and other seamen jumped ship in NS and Gramps and Joe Jarrett found their way to the Redden house. Meme was there visiting her sister who had married a Redden that would have been Harriet b 1875. They met and then after a bit they eloped to Sharon, Massachusetts where they married and then Grampa Moss worked for car railway that went from Canton, to Boston and they lived in Canton and raised the family there.
After Grampa Moss died she gave up the home and went to live with one child for a year then moved on to another doing that with the 5 living kids.
So she was with us when her 2 sisters visited us and boy I did a lot of questioning the 3 of them.

I do have the Willis family back to England and when John Willis came over from England he use the name Wills and the first 3 children had the Wills surname then it went to Willis. in the families a lot of this family would got Willis, Wills back to Willis.

I also have Davis family back to possibly 1745 but definitely back to 1795 in Nova Scotia.
I have found some Redden families and am writing to them to see if any of their parents have any information on the William Davis and Sarah Stewart.
You can email me at
