The attached photograph is my Great Grandfather,
Patrick Isaac Burke, known as "Big Pat". He was born
in St. Jacques, Fortune Bay, in August 1849, and died
in Sydney, Nova Scotia, September 30, 1930. He married
Alice Mullowney and they had eight children, all born in
St. Jacques. Big Pat was a ship's captain and a carpenter.
He was the son of Patrick Burke, 1820-1884, and the
Grandson of Patrick Burke, 1792-1860.
