Comments: I use to live in D'Escousse many years ago. My house where I was brought up in was torn down. Today you would never know that the house existed at all. I don't know if any one would ever remember me. I had a sister named lisa and my mother's name is Joann Campbell. For the first couple years of schooling I went to North Isle Madame Elementary. That is all I wish to share.

Comments: Really enjoyed seeing the photos of Isle Madame again, brings back memories of my time on Cape Breton in St.Peter's. A friend of mine's in Glasgow, Scotland (Canadian born) Dad was born in De'Scousse, Joseph King (Roi/Roy) son of Joseph LeRoy (King?) and Mary Jeanne Poirier. They were married in Arichat (Records show 2 pages of marriages for 1892-1911, not sure of exact date)
There's also a John McMinas?? and an Emma Petipas on the record, possibly witness's??
Anyway, keep your website going friend as you're helping your fellows keep touch with their home.
Hi' to the Keoghan's and anyone else who remembers Donna and myself.

Name: Carol LeBlanc (nee Peebles)
Location: New Hampshire
Comments: I was born in Arichat July, 1941, my mother was Dorothy Young, daughter of Captain Frank Young and his wife Elizabeth Roast. I would love to know more about my mother's family and her childhood friends. We visited Arichat during my childhood, staying with Agathe LeBlanc (LeBrun) and Edith Maloney. Wish I had listened closer to my mother's tales of Arichat, they were always interesting but I should have written them down.

if the houses were one and the same.

Comments: I recently found a cousin who told me that my LeBlanc ancestors came from W Arichat, Isle Madame, Breton, Nova Scotia. Marie Belle LeBlanc was my great-grandmother. She and her fiancée, Abraham White came to the US in the late 1800's and were married in 1903 in Massachusetts. She was the daughter of Abraham LeBlanc and Sabine Forrest. I understand that the house that she grew up in still stands and that it may be currently owned by Jason Boudrot. If there is a photo of it on this website I would love to see it if someone would be kind enough to direct me there. I hope I can come and visit there some day! Thank you, Kathleen Collagan
