Narrative

Mary Ann Beer was the eldest daughter of Thomas Beer and Jane Robertson, born on the Island and baptized at St. Paul's Anglican Church in Charlottetown. She grew up in Lot 31, where she married Archibald McFadyen, with both fathers at witnesses.

Mary Ann and Archie had seven children who survived childhood: Jane (m. John Bowman); Margaret (m. Charles Auld); Hannah (m. James Mitchell); John Archibald (m. Sarah Jane Campbell); Rebecca (m. William Auld); Elizabeth (m. Wm. Johnstone Mann); and Robertson (m. Jessie McDonald).

All of Mary Ann and Archie's children are in the PEI Baptismal Index.

In the 1881 census, the family is listed under Arch McFadgeon, with Mary Ann (48) and children Hannah (21), John (20), Rebecca (18), Elizabeth (14), and Robertson (10). Arch and John were farmers, Elizabeth and Robertson were going to school.

Mary Ann's parents Thomas "Bears" (74) and Jane (73)
Her brothers George "Bears" (35) and James Beers (40).
