Re: DesBarres Family

Hello Eric: Thanks for you email. I have asked my brother if he has any of Irene's work. I visited a couple of years ago prior to Irene entering the nursing home. It is my understanding that Irene's husband passed away this past winter.
I hope to visit River Hebert and Joggins in August. Do you live in the area? Would you be available to meet to discuss our respective family trees?
Thanks again for your information.

Hi Joe:

I descend from Mary CANNON's brother [John CANNON] and have a lot of information on the Desbarres families. Mary was never married to the erascible old bugger (JFWD) but bore him several children. She also tended to his large estates when he left Nova Scotia for other parts of the world.

Martha also bore him 11 children but only a few of them ever wandered around the Maritimes.

A lot of information had been compiled by the late Irene Melanson, however I'm not sure if her files have come to light yet.

If you can tell us who your grandfather might be, maybe we can help you. I have too much information to just post it and leave it.

Thanks to Marty for Stella Lund's middle names and dates.

Regards,
Eric Keys

Frederick William Wallet DesBarres married Stella Lund in Sackville NB in 1945, when he was a 78 yr old grandfather! He had been a Methodist clergyman, became a history professor and author at Mount Allison University. It was Sella's first marriage, apparently she had been his student. His grandfather William and family lived in Halifax in 1881: they were Church of England, he was a Superior Court Judge. William's son Lewis was a lawyer there. I haven't found anything about FWW's father other than his name. Is there any connection here with your DesBarres family?
