Hi,
I have just begun searching my husbands family.What I have is as follows Obediah Turnbull was born around 1858, his wif we believe was Margaret.The had 8 possibly more children one bring Roderick Turnbull bor:10/08/1885 Springhill. He married Elizabeth MAloney in the early 1900's. My mother in law along with her mother and 2 siblings left Springhill in the early 1950's for Alberta. Any thoughts on where to look next would be most welome!.

Jen,

I was Cathy Fisher, daughter of Bill and Elaine Turnbull, granddaughter of Norman and Catherine Turnbull from Junction Road in Springhill.  I have some information on the Turnbull's but a cousing named Billy Beaton has a lot of our history.  My aunt Norma Morgan nee Turnbull lives in New Hampshire is 86 she also remembers much of our history.

I believe Roderick is my grandfather's relative.  He had a brother named Jim.  I will check into this.  My grandfather was 80 years old when he died in 1993.

Good Morning:

My great-grandfather, Domenique Annon (1866-1937),  lived for a time in Joggins, Nova Scotia before moving on to Sourthern Alberta sometime after 1905. I am unsure of the date they married, but he married a Catherine Turnbull and they had three children, John Francis (1893-1916), William Walter (1895-1979) who was my grandfather and Beatrice May (1897-1902) all born in Cumberland County. Catherine Turnbull herself died young in about 1902. Seeing Obediah Turnbull's name in the 1907-1908 McAlpine Noca Scotia Directory and reading that he was miner like my great-grandfather, I'm wondering if anyone knows whether Obediah was the father of or brother to my great-grandmother Catherine Turnbull Annon.   Thanks.

I'm Norm McRae, and my mother was Ruth Turnbull, one of the family who moved west to Alberta - Calgary, to be exact. My Aunt Rhoda (nee Turnbull) Perry, and brothers Roy (Drummer), Tom, and Donald (Donnie) all moved to Calgary in the 1950's.

My grandfather was Roderick Turnbull of Springhill, NS, and his wife's name was Elizabeth MacAloney (I actually have a photo of her). I believe they had 13 children (the oldest boy was named Obediah - coincidence? I doubt it!)

I also know that Roderick was a Sapper in the Royal Canadian Engineers in WW1 (Maybe he helped dig tunnels at the front - possible since he was a coal miner back home).  

Most of their boys joined the Army in WW2, except Donnie (too young) and Tom (joined the Navy). My mom's twin brother (Ralph) was killed in Korea on 1 Jan 1954, and his name is in the Book of Remembrance for Korea.

Please contact me if you'd like to talk  - we may be related!

Hello! Folks .....

You may be interested to know that a picture of Ralph Turnbull appears on the MILITARY panel of the Kiosk on Main Street in Springhill.

However, all the panels have been removed and stored for the winter, but will be replaced for viewing in early summer/2009.
