I am trying to help a friend trace her ancestry. I have gotten her back to Rev Edward and Sarah Colley but I am struggling to put the pieces together. I have no idea Sarah's maiden name nor the birthdates and places and full names of their children.

Any help would be appreciated!
Brenda

Since I posted this I was able to find that Edward Colley married Sarah Cartwright on 29 Aug 1850 in Harbour Breton, Fortune Bay, New Foundland. I believe he was born in England about 1830. He was a minister in Topsail at one time I was told. Thanks!

Sorry I have no information on Sarah Cartwright.
You may wish to look on www.familysearch.org
It is a free site and very useful. There is information there concerning Edward and Sarah's children and their spouses.
