Cousin Richard Bernard Donnelly, Digby, Nova Scotia

Copied this obituary today. This man’s father was my grandmother’s adopted brother (she was the adopted one). I have pictures of my grandfather visiting Bernie and Dora and their children, Ruth and Shirley. I did not know about Richard, Lloyd, Ronald and Ruth.

This doesn’t necessarily help with the genealogy, unless someone out there sees this and has information, particularly if they live in Digby. It looks like Richard did not marry or have children of his own.
