I'm not sure if this is of any help to you but my grandmother, Annabelle Fitzgerald (Tower) was from Springhill.  She was born on May 18th (not sure of the year) but she passed away on September 22, 1970.  Feel free to contact me at and I will give you as much information as I can.

I am not researching PATRIQUIN but have run across members of this family in both Lunenburg and Tatamagouche.

The PATRIQUINs came to Halifax/Lunenburg in the 1750's from Montbeliard (France).  You can find them in the following ship's list:

In the 1770's some PATRIQUINs and other Montbeliard families moved from Lunenburg to Tatamagouche.  A little later some of them moved on to River John.  You can find more information in Patterson's History of the County of Pictou which is available online at the Pictou County GenWeb site (see page 128).

I have some additional information about a Lavinia Patriquin who lived in Tatamagouche/Brule and married John Ives.  Let me know if you are interested.

Hi Sylvia.........?

Do you know where I can find info on the McNutt's from Springhill online?  My uncle Ralph, I believe, is doing something with it.  My father is William Jacob McNutt, Grandfather Ross McNutt, G-Grandfather Jacob McNutt from Economy and lived on Morris Street in Springhill.  

I am curious to find out if there are any records on my great grandmother Agnes (Price) McNutt who came from Ireland at the age of 12.  Who and where are her family members?

Also,  on my mothers side, I would like to find information on the Jones' from Springhill.  My mother Mary Elizabeth Anne (Jones) aka Beth, her father William Jones died from the explosion in the mine in Springhill, his father was Edwin Jones who lived on Cowan Street in Springhill, he died lates 1970's early 80's.

I'm not sure if you would know any of this information but maybe someone from the Springhill Heritage Group.  Perhaps Catherine Dickie,  (Dickie's who I am related to also).

My grandfather was William Tower (1908-1998 left for Toronto in the late 40's?) him and his father William Tower Sr. were both coal miners in Springhill.  Where does the family name Tower originate?

My grandmother, Violet McNutt (born?-spring 1978) was born in either Springhill or Oxford.  From my research I believe McNutt is a Scottish name (MacNuachtan) were the McNutt's in Springhill from Scotland originally?

Since the Baptist church burned down in the 70's a record of their marriage can't be found.  I don't even know what year they were married in.

I'm trying to get a family tree together but it's not easy any info about these two families would be appreciated.

Jamie :)
