change the flat view to oldest first and go to the bottom of the page - I think query # 10? and there is a list of ABRAHAM PAULS children...all throughout the queries there are many references to each of the children.
THERE IS SOME CONFUSION HERE ABOUT THE MOTHER AND i WILL EXPLAIN - THIS IS FROM JILL MARSHALL, ARCHAVIST, NFLD
I have a baptismal for ABRAHAM PAUL...

BOX 3 BURIN RC PARISH RECORDS
I am not sure but I believe that NEWALL (NEWELL, NOEL) PAUL
married twice - #1 JANE SYLVESTER **MY LINE** and
#2 perhaps her younger sister JOHANNA SYLVESTER.
There is no record for a second marriage and there may have been the fact that JANE & JOHANNA were in fact the same person...just had short or second names that were used.
OR...JANE DIED & sister JOHANNA was married to WILLIAM PAUL (perhps brother to NOEL) and he died so JOHANNA & NOEL got married and had FRANCIS PAUL & maybe BENJAMIN (I have no parents for him) who was born c1856.
So...at this point we know that ABRAHAM PAUL is the son of
WILLIAM PAUL & JOHANNA SYLVESTER
according to BEVERLY WARFORD - NOEL PAUL was born c1824 in BIG RIVER - now BIG COVE N.B....son of JOSEPH
I do not know if this is OUR NOEL PAUL but he is (in BEV'S notes) the father of JOHN WILLIAM PAUL (SEP 1854)born in BURGEO - and is well documented in BADGER.
hope this helps some and on thes first page both JOHANNA & BRIDGET (BRIGITTA) are there. micmak1
