      MARY JANE NELLIGAN, b. November 10, 1888, Tignish, P.E.I.

      Confirmation of error was brought to my attention by Mary Shea granddaughter to Mary Jane Nelligan. A second confirmation by my aunt Gertrude Miller Burke confirmed to me that her grandparents John Nelligan and Margaret Ann Harper, who Mary Jane is incorrectly listed under as a child, did not have a child by that name, and she (Gertrude) did not have an aunt by that name either.
      Mary Jane also in not listed under the obituary of (Gertrude's) aunt Mary Alma. John Nelligan and Margaret Ann Harper only had 3 daughters.
