Hi Pauline:

Thank you.

Would you know roughly when Lloyd Brown died and/or where?

I have looked in the Chronicle Herald Obituary Index at the Halifax Archives a couple of times but gave up as there’s oodles of Lloyd Brown’s in the index so I gave up.

By narrowing things down to within 5 years, I might be able to locate his obit and post as I try to follow the Parrsboro Shore Crossmans.
