Hi Read:

Thank You.

I saw the obit in the newspaper but couldn’t make the “Parrsboro” connection so didn’t collect it at the time.

Minnie remarried to Arthur Brownie Oct.23, 1905 as a widow. I could not find a death record for Robert James Taggart. Since there youngest child Neta was born in January 1904, Robert J. probably died sometime between April 1903 and October 1905
Roger's adopted great grandparents were James Taggart and Sarah Elizabeth McAloney.
