Winter family of Newfoundland and British Guiana
Hi Everybody. I'm hoping there may be Winter family members on this forum who have info on this branch of the family.
Clara Elvira Winter (nèe King) was my great aunt - she was born in British Guiana in 1861 and married John Winter 1850 - 1885 (son of Frederick Augustus Rothwell Winter of St John's, Newfoundland). I found her name and will mentioned in Newfoundland Grand Banks through a Google search, but was unable to locate the reference once in the site. I did look in the Hampshire,...

Selena Coombs
Hi, I was wondering who posted the picture of the Headstone of Selena Coombs. She was my now passed Mother’s Mom, who died in childbirth when my Mother was 8 years old. Her Dad remarried. My Mother left the home at an early age. Any pictures of her Mom were lost or destroyed. My Mother tried to describe what her Mom looked like. I’m just wondering if the person who posted her headstone might be a relative, and maybe might have a picture of my Grandmother. Thanks in advance.
 
MERCER from Country Road Bay Roberts
I have a picture of my Grandfather, William John Marshall(Right) and Robert North (Centre) in their Newfoundland regimental uniforms. The third man on the left has only been identified at "Young Mercer from Country road" We would love to know who this gentleman is. Mercers and Marshalls were related. So we are assuming cousins. Any and all information / pictures would be appreciated.

Thank you
Kathy Marshall

Hollie Leaman Boone
My Dad worked in a lumber camp during the winters of 1937 to 1939, prior to joining the Royal Navy for WW2. His name was, he passed away Dec 2005, Hollie Leaman Boone. I'm writing my first novel, which includes his back story. If anyone knows of his life in the camps, I love to hear from you. He grew up in Corner Brook and I would expect he would have been in a camp in the area of Deer Lake. :D

Farrell Triplets in 1860? Probably not.
My great-great grandparents, John and Mary (Connelly) Farrell, had five children: Richard, Elizabeth, Patrick, David and Teresa. The baptismal registry for St Bernards Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church (both the transcribed version here and the original image) show Richard, Elizabeth and Patrick baptized on the same day: August 21, 1860. Triplets had to have been exceptionally rare (with all three survivng), and families typically baptized children as soon after birth as possible.

Help with several surnames.
Hello, I have been doing research into my family tree for a few years now. My grandmother Angela Collins had done up a lot of it throughout her life, but I have seemed to have misplaced her scrolls where she kept the information. I keep track of my family tree on FamilyEcho, a free online family tree maker. I have 600 people on there now, some dating back to the mid 1700's.
Here are some of the surnames that I would greatly appreciate help with.
