Trying to locate the family of my Great Uncle James Donnelly. We believe he emigrated at end of WW1 and may have been married to Minerva. There was a son named Desmond.

This is about all the info we have apart from a connection to Princess Patricia of Connaught's Regiment

Hello:

Try searching this site, because someone may have misread the meaning of P.P.C.L.I., a Canadian & Irish Regiment that served in W.W.1 :

Alison? Are you still on here? I am also researching Donnellys in Halifax and came across a marriage record for James Donnelly, a soldier, and Minerva Cook in 1908. He was born in London England abt 1887 and his parents were James and Lily.

Hi, I was wondering if Minerva had any relatives you know of?

I only know that she was my grandmother but she died before I met her. She was married to my dad's dad.
My cousin seems to think my grandfather met her on the Eastern shore somewhere.

I believe my grandmother had a sister named Minerva. They lived in like Nova Scotia for a while because my grandmother was born their.
