    Hi Suzanne. No, I haven’t yet found any details about PMDF applicants and/or beneficiaries. Thanks for the references that you’ve cited at the provincial archives. I’ll take a look at them before long.

    Cynthia, where did you get the November 1863 death record for Levi? I’m looking at a copy of the records from St Peter’s Anglican Church (at the provincial archives) but there are no WHITE burials for 1863. On the contrary, there is a record of a burial that took place on 6 April 1893 for Levi White of Catalina who died 4 April 1893 at age 62.

    Cynthia, Levi’s parents were William & Mary White. His baptism is in the Anglican records from Trinity parish.

    It isn’t clear whether Levi’s parents are the same William & Mary White who resided at Catalina but relocated to Tickle Cove in Bonavista Bay in the 1830s. This William & Mary are ancestors of mine. Feel free to contact me at dapike@mun.ca if you would like to share some info.

    Hi Josh.

    For your crash course in genetics, there are several free webinars on the Family Tree DNA website. You’ll find them here:

    There are also some links to additional resources on the following FHSNL webpage:

    My source for Philip Job Clow is from the marriage record of his daughter Mary Ann on 27 April 1877 at Fort William, written in the marriage records from the Congregational Church in St John’s. She married John Pike (age 25, bachelor, Seaman, born at New Hr to parents Geo & Hanna). Mary Ann was described as being age 24, spinster, born at Bonavesta to parents Philip Job & Ann. The witnesses were William Pike, Matilda Good, and Nora Pike.

    There is a headstone at Princeton, Bonavista Bay for a child named Henrietta Selina Clow PRINCE who was born in 1884 and died in 1890.

    I reckon that she was named after Henrietta Adelaide PRINCE (nee CLOW) who died in 1887 at age 23. Gert Crosbie’s newspaper collection notes that this Henrietta was the eldest daughter of Marmaduke W. CLOW.

    As an aside, would you happen to know anything about Philip Job CLOW? His daughter Mary Ann married in 1877 (at age 24) to John PIKE. The marriage record says that Mary Ann was born at Bonavista, but I have not been able to find anything for her birth or for her parents.

    I’ve done a fair bit of DNA testing, both on myself as well as various family members. I’m a happy customer of Family Tree DNA. To briefly sing their praises, they offer all three of the different types of genealogical DNA test (namely Y-DNA, mtDNA, and autosomal DNA) and have consistently been pioneers in the field of genetic genealogy. They also store the DNA samples that are submitted, which makes it easy for people to later do additional tests as upgrades, without the need to submit new samples and wait for their delivery.

    There is a webpage on the FHSNL website that briefly describes the types of DNA test available. Its web address is here:
    https://www.fhsnl.ca/?page_id=579
    It includes links to some other pages with more info. For instance, there is a link to a page with webinars provided by Elise Friedman… the introductory webinar is well worth viewing.

    Hi John.

    The only thing that I can convey in this regard is that I believe that the flag that was used by the Cox family of Poole and Fogo was the same as the flag of the modern French republic. I was told by a Cox descendant once that when the republic was fairly new, it had to obtain the permission of the Cox family to use their colours.

    Hi David.

    Yes, I believe it was Babb’s paper about the Pike family that contained this information. Capt William’s daughter Elizabeth Ada married in 1890 to Leander Pike, so that’s where the Mortimer-Pike connection comes into play.

    I once read a student paper that stated that Capt William James Mortimer died at sea. I believe his widow’s maiden name was Mary Ann Wescott. The paper was written by John Babb and is now part of the collection at the Maritime History Archive.
