In 1877,seven men from Placentia put a boat on their shoulders and carried it,walking all the way,to the capital,St. John's,90 miles away,had one day's rest,then next day entered and won the annual St. John's Regatta. Mostly Morrisseys,but one of them,who built the boat,was a man named SINNOTT,and the last one James Whelan. Use a search engine and type in St. John's Regatta,1877,Newfoundland,and get more details.Obviously this posting is of Sinnott interest,but I think James Whelan was married to my grandfather's sister(though probably a few years later). Would like to have any information on this James Whelan. Thanks.Ward.
