Would anyone have a file on James Alexander Currie, born Onslow, N.S.
(1887-1947) who married 3 Oct 1906 at Londonderry, N.S., Lulu Winnifred
Sharpe (1888-1949), born Lower Maccan?

Their 12 children would be my mother's 1st cousins.

Children, Charlotte May (1907-1907) and James Arnold (1922-1922) died in
infancy.

Surviving children were:

Violet Irene "Cricket" (1909-1989), m/1 Estabrooks, m/2 McLellan
Florence Etta, m/1 Pettipas, moved to Stellarton
Helen Marie,
Alberta Grace
Mildred Winnifred
John Lester
Donald Eugene (1927-1983)
Cecil Edward (1928-1986)
Yvonne Christine

Don't want to re-invent the wheel per say if there's already data out there
on them.

Thanks.

Dave
