hi, yes any info would be awesome i haven't updated my rootsweb page in a long time but here's a little more

jemima coombs was the daughter of robert coombs and elizabeth clarke of carbonear. jemima was a twin she and kezia , her sis delilah married a rumbolt in labrador, sis julia and brother william i am still looking for those lines.
george was born harbour grace and he and jemima were married in carbonear in the 1850's
george and jemima had a couple of their kids in labrador which makes sence now because her sister lived there and they probably went there to stay for the summer while george fished the waters on the labrador shore. i have been taking a break from family history as i ignore everyone when i am researching and my family is starting to speak up lol

Surnames: Meany Matthews Payne
I saw on page:

http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/CAN-NF-FORTUNE...

I think I found a connection. From:


John married Elizabeth ? [1515] [MRIN: 576].

Children from this marriage were:

2i.Edward Matthews [245]. Edward married Hannah Maria ____________ [246] [MRIN: 53] in 1880 in Shoal Brook, Newfoundland.
ii.James Matthews [1516] was born about 1843 in Burgo, Newfoundland and died in 1930 in Trout River, Newfoundland about age 87. James married Matilda Payne [1517] [MRIN: 577] on 4 Dec 1876.



My ancestors are James Matthews and Matilda Payne.

I have in my records that James Matthews was born in 1843. Location unknown. (so, you've filled that in)

He died in 1930 in Trout River,

He married Matilda Payne date unknown. (now I know)

Matilda was born: Matilda Payne

Born. 1854 Bay of Islands, NL

Died. 1914 Baileys Point, NL


I'm new to this. Can you explain the numbers in [] in the listing? I’m assuming it means there is information elsewhere to be had.. I see the connection within the document. Is there more outside of the document??



As an add-on to the Matthew line, Frances (Fanny) Matthews was a daughter of Matilda and James.
Frances Born: 1884 in Chimney Cove NL and Died: 1963 in Deer Lake. She had 2 marriages: Philip Meany (1st ) and XXX McAlister. My grandmother was a Meany.

How do I get access to your roots page? (again, new)
