i have had another e.mail from Nancy the art teacher in Cape Breton with some images of her grandfather. its great to think that her personal family research is carrying on over there .
'I have included a photograph of my grandfather James Murdock McLean , when he was a tailor in Inverness Nova Scotia and also a portrait of him with his first wife. Dad has a paper that suggests that an ancestor left Lock Broom in 1803 when she was 2 years old. It says that she was kept nursing so that her passage would not have to be paid. and it says that she came over on theHector....Did the Hector make more voyages ?
it is interesting that her grandfather was a tailor. this ties in well with childrens stitched birds
