Nettie of Grand Manan
Posted by: Andrea Keirstead (ID *****3389) Date: May 21, 2008 at 18:43:10

My great-great-grandfather, Oliver Keirstead, was married to a Nettie Gaskele (or Gasgill), who was from Grand Manan and was born on May 5, 1862. I'm wondering if she is Minetta Gaskill, who is listed as 9 years old in the Grand Manan census of 1871, which I found online at
This would make her a daughter of George and Susan, about whom I know nothing. I know that Nettie was "of Calais (Maine)."

Does anyone know if my hunch is right, and does anyone have more information about this family?
