Re: [nscumber] Obit: MacDONALD, Rhoda V [née SIDD_ ALL]

Hi Eric
A little correction if I may, Viola's mother was Dorothea E. Tower and her father was Alfred Eli Moore and you may find that Murray Siding Colchester County is Atkinson Siding, Cumberland County, NS. Dorothea was my wife's great grandmother. Hope this helps Eric.
