Eric and Rick:


Fred Dwyer was originally from Amherst as there¹s a delayed registered birth
for him. His father, Amos Bedford Dwyer m/3 a widow, May Hoeg, born in
Parrsboro, d/o Charles and Mary (?????) on 23 Jun 1916, Baptist, Amherst.

I haven¹t figured out yet May Hoeg¹s maiden name or which Hoeg she m/1. She
was born in Parrsboro about 1856.
