My maternal great grandfather, James N. Andrews, was born in Coleraine, Ireland in 1819. He was one of 15 children! At the age of 15, he came to Canada with his family. He was a baker by trade. He lived in St. John, New Brunswick.
On my paternal side of the “tree” I also have Irish ancestors… so this is a day to honour them.
May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon your fields and, Until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
