I will definately keep my eyes open for you. I stumbled on this post a little while ago, sharing just in case :)



Hi Dorothy,
I am looking for information on the ‘mi’kmaq on the norhtern pennisula. My great-great-great-grandmother was Mary Ann Maher (b1843-d1905) married to a William Haynes (Hynes) from Port au Port area. There was a Patrick Marr from labrador (with a family of 8) in Port aux choix in 1838 protecting the french fishing supplies, I think that was her father because Mary Ann Maher and several Mahers born around the same time as she, married a family of rumbolts in Port aux Choix. Also,
There may be some evidence that Patick Marr married an unknown marche (I think possibly from Bay of Islands or Port au port because Mary Ann Maher married a Hynes from there. There seems to be very little documentation about Mi’kmaq on the Norhtern Pennisula. I read some material where you were in Bartlette’s Hr in 1993 and said a Mary Hynes was an Indian woman. She would have been Mary Ann Maher’s grand-daughter. Mary Hynes’s father was also known as Indian Billy (William Hynes) by the locals. This family of marrs (Mahers) seem to have a unique history. Do you have any information about them or recall your visit to Bartlette’s Hr? Thank you.
