Re: Bedford Vance Croft of Gaspereau

I just discussed all of this with Margaret, who was married to Theo Levy and now married to Merton Rafuse. Here are her own words:

Bedford Croft was my half brother.I dont know where the Brown comes in on Laura's name on her husband's obit. Ann Brown, married to Laurie Brown was niether a Morine or a Croft. Mom had her between those two husbands and it is believed her dad was a Davidson ? None of Norman Morine's children except Hattie (Laura ) went by Morine . We all went by WALSH. Mom and Norman were not married. Actually, Larry is Lawrence's son. but for some reason when he got his birth certificate, it said Walsh, so he left it that way. Ann Brown is a half sister to all of us siblings. I was the last of the 7 children to be born with Norman Morine as my father ( Margaret Walsh ) Ann was next, them Mom had the next 5 starting with Bedford with Lawrence Croft. I hope this clears up some of the confusion. I f not , feel free to get back to me .
Received today from Margaret... Cora
