Alice Melinda Ripley Springhill or Wolfville church soloist around 1910

Hi there,
I'm trying to fill in some of the details on a story my grandmother Alice Melinda Ripley told me. She had a beautiful singing voice and often sang for special occasions like weddings and funerals. She told me that as a young girl (probably between 1908-1914) she would travel to Parrsboro (likely by horse) and then take the ferry across to Wolfville to sing in the church there. She was born in Maccan but living in Springhill with her sister Emma Ripey Langille in 1911. She was a Methodist but the Langilles were Presbyterian. It's likely that she traveled on the Prince Albert ferry across the bay. Any hints on how I could go about finding out more about the ferry or the Methodist churches in Wolfville or Springhill or accounts of weddings where she might be mentioned? Thanks, Mallory
