Hello Judy!

You are quite welcome! It would be interesting to find the early Sinyards and try to find the connection between both Sinyard families. Some of the information I got from my aunts,but most of it came from Shirley Sinyard Clarke. She and I are cousins because we share the same Grandfather Richard Sinyard but through different sons of Richard. It is interesting about the last name of your second cousin, I know that there are some Greens in Winterton or (Scilly Cove). I know of Green here in Yukon. I will talk with him. I may have some relations there as well.

I can understand how you feel about missing an opportunity to record information. I wish I had started many years earlierin obtaining information with my Great Grand mother Annie (Sinyard) Sooley.

That is an interesting story about a house with 13 fireplaces!! That would be a very big house. I could check with the local Heart's Content historical society at the Heart's Content Cable station. I know that before 1866. Most homes were not that big, would not certainly have that many fireplaces. I am thinking after the cable was laid that the business and prosperity of Heart's Content began to improve quite considerably. It may be possible to find a photo of the house. It cetainly would have stood out in that community.

I am assuming from your comment about your grandmother's brothers being killed by French pirates. I am guessing your father was probably talking about his Grandmother or Great Grandmother. But you are quite right, it is a mystery! That is the fun and interesting part of doing genealogy!! It like being a detective!! smile.

Cheers
Eric
