Veronica (Macleod?) Davis
Looking for information on my great grandmother, Veronica 1899-1968. I know nothing of my great grandmother or her family. My great-grandfather, Henry Davis, came from Nfld to work in the Pocohontas Mine and soon afterward married Veronica. They had one daughter Mary, born in 1917 before moving back to Nfld to continue their family. Veronica also went by the name of Laura (nickname?). After her father had died her mother remarried a man possibly by the name of Macleod. Veronica may have been raised by her grandparents. Any Info would be greatly appreciated:)
