I'm looking into the Pack families of Bay Bulls, just to make connections to the proper lines.

One question on my mind: Henry Voisey Pack (1891-1945) married (when?) Flora Leora UNKNOWN. I do know that Flora Leora appears to have been born in Petty Harbour in 1894 and died in Bay Bulls in 1979 but I do not know her maiden name.

Can anyone help here please?

Trishe, Henry V. Pack married Flora L. Chafe of Petty Harbour, in 1919.

Bless you Milt! Now, I have six "Flora Chafe's" and none of them can be the one who married Henry Voisey Pack.

Any clues as to who Flora Leora Chafe's parents were?

Flora Leora Chafe (28 October 1894 - 17 June 1979) was the daughter of Alexander Chafe (1863-1935) and Hannah Maria Williams (1871-1946). She was the grandaughter of Thomas W. Chafe & Amelia Maria Chafe, and Thomas Williams & Susanna Chafe.

Thanks Ed! I didn't get a notice upon your reply for some reason but that's okay. I didn't have a Flora Leora as a child of Alexander Watt Chafe & Hannah Maria Williams. I did have a child, HENRY R., listed as being born in 1894. This was from a Canadian Passenger List as well as a Border Crossing source.

I have a marriage date of 4 Jan 1894 for Alexander & Hannah but no source listed for it.

Alexander Watt Chafe and Hannah Maria Williams were married at Petty Harbour. They had nine children, four of whom died as children. Henry Robert Chafe was the only child of Henry Robert Chafe and Hannah Maria Chafe.

Thanks Ed! This is what made me think that Henry R. Chafe was the son of Alex & Hannah:

Canadian Passenger List: SS Sable 1 St. john's 16 Nov 1920 North Sydney, NS 18 Nov 1920
Chafe, Wm. T. 24 Male Born NL Des: Boston Fisherman Inland by Train
Chafe, Henry R. 27 Male Born NL Des: Boston Fisherman Inland by Train

Border Crossings from Canada to US: Manifest: St. John, NB June 1921
Chafe, William T, 24, M, S, Fisherman; Last Perm Res: Petty Harbour; Father: Alex, Mother: Hannah; Final Des: Lynn, MA; To join: cousin, Jake Chafe, 77 Stone Pl; Aunt: Clara Chafe, 77 Stone Pl;
Height: 5' 6" Complexion: Med Hair: Br Eyes: Gr Born: Petty Harbour, NL
Chafe, Henry R, 27, M, S, Fisherman; as above
Height: 5' 9" Complexion: Ruddy Hair: Br Eyes: Blue Born: Petty Harbour, NL

**"As Above" means the same personal information as listed for William T. But now you are telling me they are not brothers after all but only 2nd cousins, once removed?

William T. Chafe and Henry R. Chafe were both descended from Samuel Chafe & Mary Marshall. Henry's aunt Clara Chafe married her cousin Samuel Chafe who was also a descendant of Samuel Chafe & Mary Marshall. Of course there were other Chafe lines in their ancestry to further complicate their relationships.
