Robert James Coveyduck Profile
Genealogy of Robert John & Mariah Shaw Coveyduck.
My name is Heather (Sobol) Evans - Bocan. My great grandfather Robert John Coveyduck born about 1846 married Mariah Shaw born November 1842. Family tales say that Mariah's maiden name was Ford, her father changed the name to Shaw. Apparently there had been a falling out within the family. Robert and Mariah had four Children, Jane born August 1895 married Sam Snow, William John born 1898 married Bertha Suzanne Oliver, Richard born 1866 married Jessie and my grandfather Robert James Coveyduck was born September 05, 1902 in Salmon Cove, Newfoundland and died December 12, 1993 in Newmarket Ont..
The first Coveyduck to go to Hamilton was Richard Coveyduck from St. Johns Nfld., Gordon went north of Toronto from St. Johns Nfld. & his family remains there still.
