Margaret, thanks again. I might be able to sort this out. My ex was a Ferron and he married the dght of Walter and May Agnes Robinson. I just have not had a lot of luck finding Walter on any 1881 census in Nova Scotia. I fist had him as the son of William and Margaret Elizabeth Mills, but that went astray when I found Margarets death record for 1871 and what little I did have on Walter was he was born in 1878 so that eliminated Margaret E Mills being his mother.
And why oh why would someone name their kids William Walter and Walter William? I guess to confuse us later down the road.
