Hi Juliet,

Sorry I did not get back to you before now. I do not have any great-aunts/uncles (on this side of the family) living either. Older family members are the grandchildren of John Wyatt and Margaret McCluskey. None of them were born, when John was alive (he died in Jan of 1899) or were young children (growing up through the Depression) then caught up in the events of WWll, while Margaret was alive. Margaret died in 1943. They only know bits pieces of what she told their parents (her children), but nothing of her parents or John's. So we do not know, positively, how many siblings they had nor what became of them. It is entirely possible, that John's father had brothers, who immigrated to the USA or Canada, in the earlier or mid 1800's. We do know, for sure, that he was born in Stockport, Cheshire (now Lancashire) and she was born in Scotland. We believe his father's name was James and his mother's Nancy Hadfield. The next time I go to Nova Scotia, I do plan to go to the archives, to see if I can look at his death certificate, in the hopes it lists his parents' names. Have loads of cousins/aunts/uncles down there and was hoping one of them might do it. So far, none have. My Wyatt cousins in Alberta are in fact (ones I know of!) my Dad's first cousin/his children/grandchildren, all descendants of John and Margaret. Oddly enough, I did find the descendants of three brothers, from my mother's father's side of the family, all living in the same city as my Wyatt cousins. Small world! Good luck, with your continuing research. Should I learn of any definate connection, I shall let you know. Am sure you will do the same. Cheers, Trena.
