Birth*16 November 1853 Prince Edward Island, Canada; [Author's note: Her parents are stated, in several sources, to have been Robert S. and Thirza (Tuplin) BOWNESS, but other sources disagree. She was adopted by Herbert BELL, the husband of Jean BOWNESS, who was the sister of Robert S.Bowness. Susan was adamant that she was a BOWNESS. Indeed that is the only surname I ever heard associated with her, except for her married name of Weeks (though in her marriage records and in Herbert Bell's will she is called Susan Bell). Susan also insisted that she was from Norboro, PEI. Robert Bowness & Jean (Bowness) Bell also had a brother named James who lived in Norboro. James & his wife Sarah (sometimes known as Susan) sent their daughters Emma and Lydia to live with their aunt Jean in Alberton. It seems likely to me that they might have also sent another child to live with the same couple. Emma Bowness and Susan were very close. My father & aunt remember Emma's grandsons being "2nd cousins" (which is what they would be if Emma & Susan were sisters) ]9,10
