In Reply to: Re: SCHOFIELD IN CANADA by Carolyn La Porte of 100377

Good morning here in Jersey!
Thank you sooo much for your interest! What you found seems true according to our family stories.
I will search more and all the help I can get is much appriciated.
What started all this off is:
I was always told the story abt. Sarah Jane Schofield. My Mothers Uncle told her to name one of her children Schofield so that person (me) could go to Canada and find the factory! Sarah was named in her Fathers will, so I was told.
Then, my neice found a bunch of papers in my Mother's hand writing the other day. She mailed them to me. The papers she found tell the story all over again. BUT no dates of birth, etc!
So, thank you again.
My cousin found this info...
