Re: Greene Island and Reads Island Cemetery

Hi Read.
Thank you for that info.I will pass that info on to Ginny.She is
researching the names in a Scott bible.The bible dates to 1599.I believe it
is actually a Read family bible that was passed down to a Scott.She is
trying to find the connection to the Scotts and Reads.The names on the
headstones may help.Scotts lived in Amherst Point so that would not be far
from Read's Island.
I have connected the Reads to the Irish Smiths of Stanley,Hants Co. and
these Smiths are connected to the Scotts so that may be a lead.
Do you know which Smith the Smith Road is named after leading from route#2
to the Southampton Road?
I would like a picture of Reads Island also if it is not to much trouble.
Thanks again,Frank
