1895  Nicholas (b1848) and Margaret (Hamilton) B abt. 1855) as was the custom in those days, when the men to the Labrador to fish for the summer,

          the whole family went with them.  However, due to a mix up in arrangements for the return trip in the Fall, Nicholas and Margaret  and 9 of their children

          were left stranded on the Labrador with no winter clothing and a limited supply of food.  They made their way from Sloop Cove to Emily Harbour and

          survived for two months with the aid of friendly Eskimos, until being rescued by a boat sent from St. John's.

          See EMILY HARBOR and the article by Cassie Brown "Castaways of Labrador."  While this article places the event in 1897, some sleuthing by John the

         Cooper's grandson John Kennedy the date for this event has been revised to 1895.

 

1898 Nicholas went  alone to the Labrador this year. He was not willing to expose his family to such danger again.

 

1898  The McAlpine Directory of 1898  for St. John's (page 267 - 273) listed the following;

          St. John's and lived on Queen ST.
