Updates to Harrigan Cove Site Today

Today I spent several hours adding information from an old website I used to keep. I’m still working on organising the data to connect it and make it easier to find. It will take weeks to do this.

The sections added today were…

  • Census: Eventually various censuses transcriptions will appear here
  • Family Pages: Links to websites dedicated to families that lived in Harrigan Cove
  • Index: A complete list of individuals mentioned on this site with links to the page they appear
  • Maps: Three relatively current maps of the Eastern Shore
  • Post Masters: A list of post masters that operated the local post office
  • Snippets: Short pieces of information found on the internet or in newspapers

The names on the headstones that were added were…

  • MacDonald, George – Steel Cross (George Ephraim)
  • MacDonald, Gladys – Steel Cross (Daughter of George Ephraim MacDonald and Julia Maud McDonald)
  • MacDonald, Hilda – Steel Cross (Daughter of George Ephraim MacDonald and Julia Maud McDonald)
  • MacDonald, Ilene – Steel Cross (Eileen; daughter of George Ephraim MacDonald and Julia Maud McDonald)
  • MacDonald, Lousia A. – Steel Cross (Might be the daughter of George Ephraim MacDonald and Julia Maud McDonald)
  • MacDonald, Maud – Steel Cross (Julia Maud McDonald)
  • MacDonald, Ruby – Steel Cross (Daughters of George Ephraim MacDonald and Julia Maud McDonald)

These four steel crosses were lined up beside each other. After a little research, I discovered Gladys (1921 – 1943), Hilda (1911 – 1933), Ilene (Eileen; 1925 – 1942) and Ruby (1916 – 1935) were sisters who died as young women. The last cross has their parents George Ephraim MacDonald and Julia ‘Maud’ McDonald.

Also, the steel cross in the same area for Mary MacDonald is also probably Maud and George’s daughter. Mary Maude McDonald was born and died in 1920 after only 9 days of life.
