Thank you Theresa.I am just beginning to trace this family backward in Nova Scotia. According to my record which comes from Rod Lavers, Lavers family historian, Charlotte (Sharley) Spike b. 10 Sept 1859 Halifax NS, m. George Herbert Lavers 19 December 1894 in Boston.Charlotte Spike Lavers was the daughter of Brittain Spike (25 Sept 1815-1883, Boston) & Margaret Anderson ( - d. May 1893).According to this record Brittain and Margaret and their family emigrated to Boston ca 1875. A brother to Charlotte, Robert K. Spike, was a witness at the wedding of Charlotte and George Herbert Lavers in 1894. I do have pictures of Margaret Elizabeth (Maggie) and Charlotte (Sharley or "Lottie") in their later years.Several years ago, I was in contact with a descendant of Robert K. Spike.Interestingly, he had much recollection of spending summers as a child on Bustin's Island off of S. Freeport but had no real memory of having (Spike) Lavers cousins who lived in S. Freeport. He is a contemporary of my father and his father would have been a first cousin to my grandmother, who was a child of George and Charlotte.Also my uncle (now about age 72) does remember Margaret Elizabeth as an elderly lady.She died some time in the 1940's I believe.
SL of Penetanguishene Ont. is the family historian of the Spike family of the Canadian Maritimes from whom I obtained the beginning info. I hpe to speak with her again soon.
