Re: Bedford Vance Croft of Gaspereau

Thank you to everybody who posts to this group.  I have been able to gather some very valuable information, such as the clarification which Cora just posted regarding the Croft\Morine family.  Although I am only connected to this family via distant marriages, (Schofield's via my Grandmother Nowlin)   information such as Cora's certainly helps to explain my mother's attitude towards so many people I knew or hear of when I was growing up.  I remember Freda and actually cut her obituary from the Chronicle Herald last year when she pasted.  Again, thank you to everyone who is not afraid to open their "family vaults" and shed light on their family members.  Sonya  --- In, <davidwinter@...> wrote: Cora:

Thanks. Margaret's info solves everything genealogically.

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

Bedford Croft was my half brother. I don't know where the Brown comes in on
Laura's name on her husband's obit. Ann Brown, married to Laurie Brown was
neither 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 .
