To Dave Winter

This is not a reply to the McCulley postings, but I do have a question for Dave Winter. For some unknown reason, no posting from Dave Winter shows up on my emails--I only see Dave Winter postings when someone replies to something that has been sent in by Dave Winter. How can this be?

There has been a recent exchange of info about the GRAHAM family/families of Fox River. I only knew about these because of a Dave Winter response to a posting from The Alexanders. I did respond and sent info to both The Alexanders and Dave Winter. These occurred just before Christmas, so I was not surprised to see nothing more from Dave Winter, even though The Alexanders responded. I had hoped for some confirmation, or further questions, about my info.

Dave, have you sent any further messages re GRAHAM family/ies of Fox River?

Hoping for an answer to my question about why no messages from Dave ever show up in my email except as replies to someone else's posting.

Just a check, for Phoebe Phinney Don Lewis had a death date of 1874 but in
my file I have the following

Old Anglican Cemetery (#61), Parrsboro, Cumberland Co,NS

Stone #1


wife of / Peter Willigar

July 31, 1863

Original reading of this stone was 1863 but marriage was in 1867 Age 64

so year must be 1868

I may have a negative of it somewhere but can't place it right now

In consultation with Pam out in B.C. which started with an off line query,
we think we have found some new Willigar data not on the "Willigar and
Connected Families of Parrsboro" website.

I have Phoebe Phinney (1817 to 22 Jan 1874); m/1 James Vincent Bowden.

I have Peter Willigar (1801 to 17 May 1873); m/1 Phoebe Pettis (16 May 1800
- before 1886) on 15 Feb 1825.
