I have among my family papers an eighteen page history compiled about 1987 in the Prince
Edward Island Library about a branch of the Lefurgy family who settled after the Amer.
Revolution in Summerside or Bedeque. The genealogy is very COHERENT and lists many
descendants from several branches and quotes 19th century newspaper articles about the
members' successes. A Westchester cousin who is a professor and journalist put the
history together. My cousin and I have often been asked if we are from PEI! The legends
which concern the family background, however, are not legends I had ever heard.
If any of you are interested in a copy of the book, let me know.
I will send direct ancestor, Martin Lefurgee's line to your List during the next
several weeks. I have the same information that is in Margaret Lane's book in a
standard Roots program.
