My Irish grandfather may very well have been an orphan of his McPadden family that did not survive. I would like to know how to search names of those who died in those terrible times.

My great great grandfather's brother, Thomas Blevins (age 5) is buried on the island and his name is engraved on the memorial. I hope to visit this sacred place before the end of the year.

My Grandfather was quarantined there, thankfully not during 1840s. Many Canadian doctors and nurses gave their lives to help out the new Canadians. Their efforts weren't in vain as some got better and went on to enrich this great country.
