Anne[1] was born in Nova Scotia.

At age 18, she married Benjamin Legge in 1872 in Kings County.

Unlike her husband and most of her family, who are listed as Baptist, the Canadian census lists Annie and her daughter Ella as Adventist.

She is the mother of eight girls and four boys. Note that three of the girls married men named Lyons. The Lyons family lived in Blomidon, Nova Scotia.

Bertha Legge helped to care for Noble Lyons' wife, Rowena, and their children; while Rowena was ill. Rowena died of consumption in 1910. Bertha married Noble Lyons, while Cora and Pearl married his sons, Ralph and Roy.

Annie passed away many years before her husband, who died in 1934.


  1. ↑ Somehow we had "Anna E." as her first name and middle initial, but Glenn Legge and Marsha Auger pointed out that Anne's gravestones (both of them) say "Anne A." Where did we get Anna from? Maybe a census?
