A Leap Year Dilemma

I thought I would share this snippet from the “Portland Guardian” of February 24, 1904.  The single men of Bridgewater had a lot to think about while milking the cows during the leap year of 1904.

    Hello Merron
    have just read you blog with great interest. I too am descended from the Barrys of Tipperary. Your Ellen Gamble nee Barry was the sister of Mary – the troublesome – on board the Orient. I would love to chat with you about our ancestors if you are interested.
    Regards
