I met with Mrs. Ena Mifflin on May 22, 1996 and she showed me her family Bible and allowed me to copy the foregoing information and the information in brackets is what she gave me verbally. She told me that Christopher had a brother named William and that her father Jesse had a brother named Wesley.
Mrs Mifflin had a wonderful sense of humour and wit and was a wonderful conversationalist, she told me her fathers family was from Fools Island and her mothers family was from Cowards Island and she stated emphatically that there was no Fools or Cowards in Her family .
As a young girl Mrs Mifflin had worked for Sir William F. Coaker in Port Union and she told me many stories of her time working for him and how she had enjoyed that period of her life.
