Born on Bell Island moved to Atikokan,Ont. in 1966. My parents and I drove back to Bell Island for a visit in May 2008 and you can view some of my pictures on Facebook. Our trip was not very good it was very cold, rain and foggy the whole time. I'm researching family history and interested in any connections to other surnames from Bell Island, Spaniard's Bay, Tilton and Upper Island Cove families. Surnames most interested in are: Bishop,Burke,Byrne,Cahill,Cole,Crane,Dalton,Dobbin,Dwyer,Fitgerald,Ford,Galway,McCarthy,McGrath,Quilty,Tucker,Warren,Young. I would appreciate any help from people connected to any of the above surnames by providing me with their name both maiden and married surnames; names of their parents; places of birth;names of grandparents if possible. This information would be necessary for me to check my files to see if I already have them in my family tree. I hope to hear from some of you. Thank you in advance.

Hello fellow Bell Islanders!
I guess I'm not really a true Newfie cause I was born and raised in Cambridge however, my dad, mom and sister were all born on Bell Island. My Dad is William (Bill) Dalton July 4, 1930 - November 16, 2004 and my mom is Doris Fitzgerald (the "flying dollar's" sister!). If anyone has any school pictures from the East End School between the years 1935 to say 1945ish or knows where I might get some, please let me know. How I long to have a picture of my dad when he was a boy!!! His family home burned down when he was either 16 or 18 and most everything was lost at that time.
Thanks for your help :)

I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE PLACE OF MY BIRTH
It was a brisk, cold January day, January 14, 1930, that I first saw the light
of day on Bell Island as the seventh of eight children of Eleazar King and Maude
Kelloway. My father was 50 years of age when I was born, my mother was 45. We
lived in a company duplex--next to uncle Bill Hutchings, Max and Jerry--not far
from the number one mine. The area wa then called King's Hill. Two years later,
they had another child, my sister Nancy. She and I are the only members of that
family who are now alive. Nancy married Ron
Jackman, of Bell Island. When the mines closed down, in 1966, they moved to the
potash mines in Esterhazy, Saskatchewan. From there, they moved to Grande Cache,
Alberta where they live in retirement.

Married in 1905, in Perry's Cove, my parents both worked in the Labrador
fishery. My oldest brother, Joe, born in 1905, was actually born at La Scie,
while my parents, travelling by fishing schooner, were on their way to--I think
it was Indian Harbour--the Labrador. The other children were Gladys--who, later,
married a Bill Flight; Bill, who married Florence Noseworthy; Elvia, who married
Gordon Skanes; Rector--never married: Ernest, who married Mame Smith (Spainards
Bays). Ern was born on The Green, in 1020. So were Nancy and I. I wish I had
more details about when my father first came to Bell Island.

When I finished high school, Jackson Memorial in 1946, I earned my first dollar
working in a grocery store belonging to Addison Bowan. I made $15.00 per week.
His store was near where I then lived--Old Court House Hill. I later got a job
picking rock out of iron ore. It paid $35.00 a week--ten hour days.

I left Bell Island in 1947. At 17, I came away to study at Mount Allison
University, Sackville, NB http://www.mta.ca to take a BA and begin my studies
as a minister of the United Church of Canada http://www.united-church.ca/
Fellow students, from Bell Island at the time were Jack Hughes and Jack Cohen.
Other than for visits, which were too short--my last visit was in 2004--I never
went back to the island again. In 1953, after I was ordained, the churuch sent
me to be the first minister at Happy Valley-GooseBay, the a squatters' town.
Jean and I literally founded the town. Quite a story. I retired in 1994. I was
then the minister at Willowdale United Church, north Toronto. I now live in
Thornhill, just north of there. (Too be continued)

I'm really proud to have roots in Bell Island. My grandfather Lemuel
lived in Lance Cove and I grew up there in the 80s. In March 2006 my
girlfriend and I visited Bell Island, and she also fell in love with the
island. I hope to retire here some day!

At the age of 17 (1960) I was a deckhand in M/V "Iselin", Norway. We
loaded iron ore in Wabana bound for the UK. I still have a soft spot for
Wabana probably because it was a calm port after the cold and stormy
Atlantic in winter.
