Can some one please help me find information about my ancestors
from FOXTRAP, Conception Bay?

So, the story goes...
Four or Five CABLE's arrived in a punt (boat) on the shores of FOXTRAP in the early 1800's.
Where did they come from? I have no idea.
There are Cables in England, Scotland, Germany, Ireland...

My Great Great Grandparents were:
Jacob CABLE and Lousia FAGAN (Her parents were:
William FAGAN b.1810 & Sarah FAGAN 1816-1899)...

Their children were:
Azariah CABLE b.1876 (Married Rebecca Newell of Pouch Cove).
Henry (Harry) CABLE b.1872 (Married Elizabeth Jane Porter)..
Fredrick CABLE b.1880 (Married Mary Baird)...
Julia Ann CABLE b.1887 (Married James Taylor)...
Jacob CABLE b.1881 (Married Francis [Fagan] Bussey)...
Eleazer CABLE b.1869 (Married Susie ?)...
And my Great Grandfather, William James (Jim) CABLE 1878-1964 ...

William (Jim) CABLE's wife, my Great Grandmother, was Hanna BATTEN 1881-1917
Her sisters and brothers, that I know of, were:
Nath BATTEN (Married Annie)...
Cal BATTEN (Married Abe BUTLER)...
Joseph BATTEN...
Benjamine BATTEN...

Her Mother & Father: I would love to know who they were.

Other people on my list that I am interested in knowing how they were connected to my family are:

John CABLE (Married Sarah FAGAN on Oct 17 1832)...
William CABLE (Married Grace (Don't know her maiden name)..
~ They had a child Grace CABLE, Christened Feb 17,1835...
William CABLE 1832-1909(Married Mary Ann 1833-1916)...

If you have even the smallest tid bit of information about my ancestors
that you would like to share with me...
I would greatly appreciate it...

Thanks,
Wanda CABLE Porter

Wanda,
Just found this in Harbor Main Anglican baptisms,......I know the date is a few years different,
but I have found the old writings were not always accurate or maybe the later census takers got it wrong or wrote it wrong.....I think this may be your Grt. Grandmother and her parents names.....see below. I know it lists the first name as Mary, but I have found in searching that many Newfoundlander's used their middle names instead of the first....I found this to be true in
my own family ancestry as well as others.

Mary Hannah BATTEN, of William & Margaret, b Apr 6 1885 Hopewell, bap Apr 13 1885

The site below has many, many cable, fagen and batten family's listed, both batisms and marriages...so you might want to check it out okay? Have fun!!

Hi Wanda,

I am a descendant of Elizabeth (Annie) Delaney (nee Fagan). She was a sister of the Frances (Fagan) Bussey you have listed married to Jacob Cable.

If you would like any more information on them, I can share what I have with you.

Hannah Delaney
