Eric and Marjorie

Eric, you were right! Priscilla Ann Blenkhorn was married to John Dewis first. He must have passed away approx. 1855 and she m/2 Henry P. Beatty in either 1857 or 1859. (I have seen both dates) In 1871, Maria and brother Joshua Dewis were both living in the Beatty household. So, Maria Louisa Dewis and Mary Alressa Beatty were half sisters.

Thanks
Steve

Eric and Steve,

Now, I'm really confused.... So Mary Alressa Beatty is the daughter of Henry and Priscilla, and Maria Louisa is actually the daughter of John Dewis and Priscilla, making Mary Alressa and Maria Louisa half sisters?

Hi Eric
Yes, you could be right! I'll dig a little more to see what I can find and I'll let you know.
Thanks

Steve:

All the information you have is the same as mine.

In the 1911 census, Daisy Harvey Morris is listed as "grandaughter" to Douglas T Porter & Maria L Dewis. On Rev Porter's death registration she is listed as "niece".

The only connection I can find between the Beattys and the Porter/Lewis is the name "Priscilla". To explain: Henry P Beatty married Priscilla Ann Blenkhorn and John Dewis was married to a Priscilla ? with Maria, Joshua and John Dewis as children. In order for Daisy to be a niece of Rev Porter, her mother (Maria L Dewis) and Mary Alretta Beatty would have to be sisters. A theory would be that Priscilla Ann Blenkhorn was mother to both Maria and Mary.

Any ideas?

Eric

Hi Eric

In your posting below, it mentions that Daisy Harvie Morris is living with her Aunt and Uncle, Rev. Douglas and Maria Porter.
To the best of my knowledge, Daisy went to live with the Porter's after her mother passed away and Edson remarried in 1900.
Maria Louise/Louisa Porter was the former Maria Dewis, d/o John and Priscilla ? Dewis and m/1 Beriah B. Cogswell from Aylsford, N.S. on Apr. 5, 1881 in Advocate Harbour. She then m/2 Rev. Porter on Apr10, 1893 in Advocate Harbour. There weren't any children from either marriage that I could find.
Daisy m/1 John Roy Rommell of Alma, N.B. on Aug18, 1920 in Advocate Harbour. I believe he worked as an accountant for C.T.White & Sons Ltd in Apple River.
Daisy's mother, Mary Alressa (Beatty) Morris was the d/o Henry and Priscilla (Blenkhorn) Beatty who married in 1857 in Advocate Harbour, seven years after Maria Louisa was born.
Another item that confused me was the 1911 census. Rev. Porter did a portion of it in Advocate and listed Daisy as his niece?

Have I missed something along the way?

Steve
