I was born and raised in La Poile and did alot of research regarding these families and many more. I also wrote three books about shipwrecks,family life stories and so on…..I like to connect to anymore who has conducted any research in this area.
I am searching for information on the Father of the Rev.Thomas Wilberforce Upward (1871-1948) : Thomas Vautier Upward (NK DOB). The good Rev. was born in La Poile, Married in England, Returned to Newfoundland, Died in England.
On his Marriage Certificate (1909), Thomas Vautier is stated to be an Officer of the U.S. Navy!
