Surnames: Power, Whalen, Dunphy, Barron
I'm just getting started with family tree search for Power in Placentia Bay. There is a oral history of three brothers having arrived at Pond Head in Little Placentia(Now Argentia) and being set up in the fishery by the merchant Sweetman. There is also a Rhyme - Pat Mikel and Tom -Steve Maurice & John Etc.... There are definately relatives in the Grand Falls area and plenty in New York and other US locations. There were marriages to a Barron, a Whalen and a Dunphy. My Grandfather was William a teacher in Placentia died 1936 2nd spouse Gertrude Healey. There seems to be some confusion as to when they arrived I have seen indications that they arrived around 1800 but Seary's history of NF names shows brothers Maurice, John and Thomas arriving Argentia in 1730-35 which fits the three brothers senerio.
