The spelling in NS is MATTATALL. Also, PLEASE be careful to list the years of birth, marriage, or death in the ORDER of the year in question (from lowest to highest year). Also, watch your spelling of names (exampe: LAVINIA and WENDALL are most likely the correct spelling).
So to make your postings much easier to understand and to avoid confusion for readers, post what you want to say as I have organized it, as follows:

It would be great to hear from relatives - I have info to share, and would like to share with relatives.
Just so you know, in the 2012 NS phone book, there are no AMON, HAYMAN, HAYMAND, or HYNDMAN names in Bass River or Upper Economy any more, but there are 2 AMON names in the Parrsboro exchange - Del Amon at 902-254-3875 and G Amon at 902-254-3351, but no HAYMAN, HYMAND, or HYNDMAN. In the Tatamagouche phone exchange, there are 8 HAYMAN names listed (all numbers start with 902-657-xxxx) who could be related to the people you are looking for, but no AMON, HAYAN, HAYMAND, or HYNDMAN spellings any more. Also, the surname MATTATALL is very common in that area, and has 15 listings in Tatamagouche, with 902-657-xxxx numbers).
I hope this will help you contact somebody who can give you some info about the people you listed in your posting of 2008. I hope that you will find my response to you and that you will be able to reach somebody who is a relative!
