I too am searching for information concerning the Welcome- Charland family.

My great grandmother Elizabeth May McArdle-Charland-Palmer-Chapman - was born in Manchester, Nh, Feb. 1901. Although it is believed she was adopted by Angie (Angelina) Cote (Cotey) and John McArdle (McCardle).

Angie was of canadian decent, John, European. Angie had also been a missionary in India at some point of her life.

John Charland was arrested for either attempting to shoot or for shooting the sheriff. Bessie was looking at possibly being fined for with holding information concerning this incident. I believe the crime was committed by John and his brother Peter. I found the short article on

My grandmother Mary Helen aka Helen always felt she and her siblings had been deserted by their father. After locating the article, I am beginning to think they were shielded from the truth concerning their father, just a theory.

I am assuming my great great grandfather, John McArdle passed away sometime in the 1920's, I am assuming in NH. Angie most likely passed in CT sometime during the late 1940s, as my mom was born in 1937 and has memories of Angie.

Any info you would be willing to share would be appreciated.

Thank you so much!
