Hi. I called my 96 yr. old Grampa Cruikshank and asked him about your family, but unfortunately he does not know.
I am about to leave on a business trip, but when get home will try to look up my Nova Scotia contacts for you...what we both need to do is more research up there.
I can tell you that most of my Cruikshank line came from Musquodoboit Nova Scotia.
Best Wishes. Look forward to hearing from you as you find more. Darlene Cruikshank Joyce DarleneCJoyce@hotmail.com
