Hey there. My grandfather was born in Nova Scotia, but his parents were from Newfoundland. He said his fathers name was Jacob Aaron Andrews, and he was born in Heart's Delight NFLD. I wonder if we're related?

Hi my mom was born in Chapel Arm Nfld and she is one hardy Newfie. Her grandmother was Charlotte Andrews and she was born in Scilly Cove. I believe we are cousins.

the baron said...

Sissy, More than likely we are connected. As you can see, there were several other Charlotte Andrews. Do you have any dates on your grandmother's birth? Marriage? etc...?

aunt sis said...

Sorry I forgot that part Elizabeth Bryant was my mother's great grandmother. Charlotte Andrews b. 1847 was my moms grandmother. Charlotte married Thomas Power from Chapel Arm, Nfld. My mothers name is Angela Charlotte.

the baron said...

aunt sis, it looks like your g-grandmother, and my g.g.grandfather, Jacob Andrews, were brother and sister. my great grandfather and your grandmother were cousins? correct? By the way, note that Jacob Andrews had 7 sons, one of which was my g. grandfather- Samuel Andrews. If you wish to send me any family history info. you can email me thru my profile. where do you live?

aunt sis said...

Ok this is so confusing to me at times. I think if my great grandmother and your g great grandfather were sister and brother that would make his sons my great mothers nephews?? So that would make my great mother your grandmothers great aunt. So have I confused you yet. I live in Norwood,Ma. Have you ever visited Nfld. I just started doing my family tree on the Andrews side, so you have given me most of the info.

Charles and Hester are my end of line on the Andrews side! I seem to have hit a bit of a brick wall but your blog has given me a couple of their children that I didn't know they had.

I'd love to exchange info with you about our common ancestry!

Charlotte Andrews ( who married Thomas Power of Chapel Arm is my greatgrandmother..Her youngest child Ellen Maud was my grandmother.
It is only recently that I have located the Andrews family records thanks to a distant in Winterton. I would be interested in knowing if anyone has researched the Elizabeth Bryant side of this family.
I live in Ontario

I think Hannah Andrews was my great great grandmother , married George Day in 1801. Does anyone have information on that side of the family?
