Hi Nancy ... Thanks for the information. I didn't expect to find any Hayes connection as my g. grandmother, Sarah (Hayes) Bell arrived in Canada an orphan from Ireland in 1847 .. all her family died either on the voyage or at Grosse Ile. John Bell came from England, arriving in 1836, but where he came to is still unknown. Also I haven't discovered a marriage record for them ... yet. Always mysteries!
You mention Regney research, Nancy. Can you tell me a bit more about that project, please. Seems we have roots in the same area of Middlesex County, at least.
Regards ... Helen McMeekin
