Hi there,

I am just getting started into looking into my family history from my mom's side of the family.
We are from McCallum, Newfoundland, down towards Hermitage and Harbour Breton.

Wondering if anyone has any information on the Family.

Benjamin and Olive Durnford.
Their Children:
Hartley Durnford (Susan Buffett)
Wilson Durnford (Rose)
Maude Durnford (Max Cutler)
Ruth Durnford (Robert Morris)

They were from Lock's Cove. When that resettled my grandfather Hartley, moved to McCallum.
However, everyone else kind of scattered. We think to Francois and not sure where else. Benjamin and Olive are not buried in McCallum and everyone except my grandfather has passed away.

And thats all I know.
