AnecdoteI asked my Mother why she thought Grandpa came to the US and didn't stay in Newfoundland, as did most of his family. She said: " He talked about fishing in the winter when ice completely covered the boat. It was a hard life. I think that's why he left and came to Massachusetts."

AnecdoteUncle Aaron's first cousin is Albert Mills. Cousin Barb says that he knows a lot of family history of the families in Old Perlican, Newfoundland. He is very elderly, now and so Tommy, his son, continues with the history of the families.
