My great great grandmother was Flora Belle Macpherson b. 1869, a daughter of John Wesley Macpherson and Phoebe Ackerly. They had over a dozen children but the only one who shows up regularly in records searches is Mary Macpherson b. 1852 - mother of Cyrus Eaton the famous, wealthy industrialist. They all lived in Pugwash, Nova Scotia. I believe I saw the list of names for John and Phoebe's children in 2 separate census for Nova Scotia. Mary and the older siblings are in the earlier census. By the 1880 census the older ones have moved off or married and there is another group of children attributed to John and Phoebe. That poor woman. Anyway, feel free to email me for any information I have that you may be interested in.
