Norbert Fraser "Norby" Dowe & Marjorie Viola Hughes

I spent several hours at this today at the Halifax Archives.

Norby ad Marjorie were married Baptist in 1927, later changing to Anglican
in faith.

I have Anglican baptisms for Irene Gwendolyn, Mary Eileen, Mildred Rebecca
and Wyman Harold but will not post as they are possibly still living.

The remaining children, Ronald Norby, Gerald, Dorothy Emily and Alice are
still possibly Baptist and possibly born between 1927 and 1937, never
switching to the Anglican faith.
