Was my great grandmother, her father was Daniel Poushay born abt 1846 married to a Ann Mcrey in Sydney(Cape Breton) Nova Scotia, Canada Sept 1899. Daniel came to Sydney by was of Ship which docked in Sydney Harbour with two other guys (one by the name Blackman). I dont know if Sydney was there original destination or where they came from. At the time the steel plant in sydney and the coal mines were a great draw for employment. Anyway Im hoping to find out more about the "Poushay's" My grandmother Anzonette died when her youngest child was 14, she is thought to have had a brain tumor or something is what I heard, at that time if you did not have the money to travel and pay for surgery I guess you didnt go.
Hoping to hear back soon, Bonniemac
