Hi Heather, it is a nice surprise to hear from you too.  I have talked to Marilyn and we plan on meeting soon.  Our Reids were a challenge to find to say the least.  Here is a link to our Reid family I have put together so far.  I hope you enjoy reading.  Kind regards cousin "Smiley

Catherine thank you so much Smiley

I was wondering if this was Samuels second marriage because of the age difference between him and Jessie. You mentioned Malcolm had a 1/2 brother. I will be fasinated to find out more as my search goes on.

Malcolm and Elizabeth (Grover) put 5 of their 6 children out to foster care and kept baby Margaret and raised her. She lives in New Glasgow and must be well into her 90s. She is a Foren married to Eligia. I sent a letter many years ago and never got a reponse.
I remember my uncle and another brother were going to Maine around 1960 to see their father Malcom but my father wouldn't go.  He had a horrible childhood and I guess he couldn't put it behind him.
I assumed Malcome and Elizabeth had died in Maine.

By the way do you live in Springhill?

Charles Story married Rachel Reid Aug.24 1910.

She was 18 he was 28 years old. Does any of this family still reside in Springhill?

Any information will be greatly appreciated Smiley

I am going to be dropping in almost everyday. There must be a Reid in Springhill who reads this board. Smiley

I am looking for information on Samuel and Jessie Reids family. They had 8 children according to the 1901 and the 1911 canadian census. I know their names and I am curious to know if any of this family still lives in Springhill.

Malcolm 1885

Agness 1886

William 1888

Anna    1890

Rachel  1892

Effie   1895

Charles 1897

Marion 1905

Malcolm is my grandfather and I don't know anything about him. So I am hoping some great grandchildren of Samuel and Jessie could fill in some missing links.
