Those Who Came After The Original 500

Donated by Jackie Ebsary

Newman Ebsary resided at 89 Southside Rd in St John's and he was a marine engineer by trade. All five of Newman Ebsary's sons and his son-in-law signed up when volunteers were called for during World War 1. Albert and William did not go overseas. Albert was a cook on the ships that took the men overseas during the war. William was a cook at the convalescent hospitals in St John's. Young Fred died of meningitis in Egypt, Joseph Hollahan was killed in action July 1, 1916, and Samuel died as a result of wounds at a later battle. Jean Hardy remembers that every July 1st, Newman climbed the hill behind his house and flew Samuel's flag at half mast. Newman died Dec 31, 1941.
