I am looking for any info on Sophronia Edith Fales born 1861? in Nova Scotia & Wilfred (William)??? Rand born 1859? Nova Scotia. Their children were Edith Estelle born 1887: Florence Pheobe born 1890 in Nova Scotia, & William born no date but was in the 1st world war, maybe a draft card in available. They were still in Nova Scotia in 1891. Info on the children would be great as well.

I went back and revisited the directories...
The family is not present in the 1901, but in 1910, Edith E, Florence, James (farm hand, which I believe is the son Wilfred), and William J (mason, which I believe is the father). In 1911, James the son??)is gone. In 1912, only J William (mason) is listed, but in 1930, daughter Edith is listed along with the parents at the Ash St address. (there were no directories available online in b/w)

Daughter Edith appears to have been in Danvers for the 1920 Census, living with a cousin...
