Name of creator
Eunice Lenora Ingersoll was born 21 August 1878 to James and Wealtha Ingersoll, in Seal Cove, Grand Manan, NB, Canada. Eunice went to McLean Hospital, Waverly, Massachusetts, USA to study nursing. She lived and worked away from her home for a long time. Though engaged twice she never married. Eunice became ill with breast cancer and came home to live with her sister, Stella in Seal Cove. She died on December 15, 1938 and she is buried in the Old Seal Cove Cemetery with no headstone.
The records were kept by Stella Ellingwood on behalf of the family. Stella gave the books to her great granddaughter, Jennifer King, who gave them to Eric Allaby (MLA) to donate to the Grand Manan Archives.
