Children of Isaac Russell & Martha Parsons from Bay Roberts
I am looking for the children of Isaac Russell and Martha Parsons from Bay Roberts. I have been told that their children were born from 1843 to 1853. I have located three daughters, who were Ellen (b. 1845), Amelia (b. 1853), and Lizzie (b. 1856). Even though Lizzie falls outside these dates, her relationship to Ellen and Amelia is verified by Amelia's obituary in 1926 under the surname Kearley.

Any all assistance or leads in locating the missing siblings will be greatly...

What Happened to John & Belinda Snow's Children?
I am trying to determine what happened to two or three of John and Belinda Snow's 3 or 4 children. Their children are Mary Jane (b. 3 Oct. 1862), Ellen (b. 3 Aug. 1866), William John Sparkes (b. 7 Sept. 1872), and possibly Sarah Fanny (b. about 1877).

I know what became of Mary Jane, but have nothing on Ellen. If I could verify Sarah Fanny's parentage by finding her birth record, then I would know what became of her and Wm John Sparkes, but have been unable to do so.
