Firstly - THANK you for helping me! I appreciate your reply re the O'Hara's also. I know that Jacob Henry DeWolfe and his wife Mary Leahy went to Mass abt. 1926, but don't know much after that. Children: Walter Seymour, Mary, and Harry. I THINK Jacob Henry had a brother (or?) named William who was a city engineer in Halifax who married Mary Cragg. I am most interested in Jacob Henry's family, parents, gr. parents, siblings etc. and definitely interested in finding who my cousins are now from the DeWolfe side. I know my gr.mo. and sister Mary were very close growing up, virtually orphans because mo. died when they were abt. 4/5 and fa. was not a responsible person for them. They were raised by an uncle's family in Petpeswick Nova Scotia (Young aka "LeJeune"). Then Mary married and eventually left for Mass. with her husband and children. I have a photo from perhaps the 60s taken in Boston I was told.
Thanks again. In kinship spirit - P Chisholm
