The midi file is playing "Hector The Hero" an old Scottish tune. Sounds better on a fiddle.

Looking for information on Flora's people.
I asked Alfa Forbes (Nicholson) one time about the older generation. She told me this about Archie B "Archie B was one of the most gentle men I ever knew. Never swore or spoke harsh words. Worked hard every day,on the farm,in the woods or whatever. He was always helping out the neighbors. He never got mad."
Son Donald had this to say about his father:
"Dad worked in the coal mines in Glace Bay before buying the farm at Wilburn. I don't know the year as it was before I came on the scene. Dad left the farm to Johnny when he and Mom moved to Sydney with Alice and Ian (Alice was a daughter). Johnny lived there for some years before Wiley, Christine's husband (Christene was another daughter), bought the old MacLean place up Cameron Road for Johnny, the one that burnt down before he moved to Blues Mills. He and Jessie lived there until their deaths."
"Dad was a lovely man that would do anything for any one. He always had time to talk and help, and when I was small would make me little wagon's and sleighs. I would love to go fishing on the Bras d'Or lakes on the ice or in the boat when the ice was gone.That sure was cold in the winter, sitting in the ice gigging for cod, mitts all frozen, much nicer running the nets in summer or spearing eels, all good food."
"Mom was his right arm, so to speak. Was always there for him, always had food ready on the table, which at times was hard to get. So fish and deer meat played a big part in our survival. But she was a good cook when she had the necessary ingredients"
"They both loved to go to church either over to Whycocomagh or Orangedale - some days both. Dad was an elder in the church, and used to supply the wood for the church fire
and get the fire started on Sunday mornings."
" Getting the winter fire wood in the home was a big thing, getting it sawed up after it was all hauled home. Also Dad and Johnny used to do a lot of pit props, etc. so all in all it was quite a hard life for Dad and Mom. No washing machines or chain saws in those days - just pure graft"
Special thanks to Donald for this information. Greatly appreciated.
Thanks to Kristin for her input to this family.
Kristin and Nelson are 2nd cousins twice removed.
Some statistics were found at:
Jean & Nelson

Archie B. & Flora MacLellan
Members of the family told me that Archie B. and his brother Neil A., while working in the coal mines, of Glace Bay, CBI. set a record for shovelling coal on one shift.
Unfortunately proof of the record was lost in a fire at the Museum in Glace Bay, CBI
They were great workers, brought up on a farm in Roseburn,CBI
Their brother John Rory was left the old farm, which is no longer in the family.
