Re: Rev. Alfred Edmund Gabriel, Newfoundland

In Reply to: Rev. Alfred Edmund Gabriel, Newfoundland by Anna Clarke (maiden name Copeman) of 638

To Anna Clarke,
I am married to Ilene Copeman, who is the grand-daughter of the Thomas Copeman you refer to in your message.
I researched Ilene's family history some years ago and although I do not have a date of birth for the Rev. Alfred Edmund Gabriel or date of marriage to Elizabeth Helen Huxtable, I can supply the following information-
He was made a Deacon by the Bishop of Newfoundland on 6 November 1859.(I have a copy of his authorisation)
He was made a Priest by the Bishop of Newfoundland on 23 June 1862(I have a copy of the Bishop's letter of authority)
I also have a copy of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland's letter of administration to Elizabeth Gabriel, widow, dated 15 November 1894 and presumably shortly after his death, as he died intestate. His last address is given as Liverpool Province, NOVA SCOTIA.
The dates I have for the birth of their daughter, Elizabeth Gamble Gabriel is 6 January, 1878, and for her marriage to Thomas Copeman in St.Johns, Newfoundland is 6 January, 1896.
What information do you have?
