Eric:

Thanks for Currie¹s obit. It may prove useful somewhere in determining what
children belong to which mother.

Should this be 1901 Census, Springhill not 1891? Some of the children were
born after 1891.

1901 Cumberland census, Springhill:
65 BROWN, DORA DAUGHTER 14 29-01-1886 (Dora A Brown)
65 BROWN, JOSEPH HEAD 43 09-06-1857
65 BROWN, MALCOLM SON 08 30-10-1892
65 BROWN, MARGARET WIFE 56 25-11-1864
65 BROWN, MARGRETTA DAUGHTER 03 13-04-1897
65 BROWN, NELLIE DAUGHTER 01 20-11-1900
65 BROWN, REBECCA DAUGHTER 06 23-12-1894 (my grandaunt, Rebecca Jane (Brown)
Canning.)
65 BROWN, ROBERT SON 10 25-12-1890
