  • Notes 
    • "Edward was a Gas Tender for the Kerosene Gas Light Company.  They Lived on Nesbitt Street in Windsor, Nova Scotia, near the Gas Company and the railway station.  This area was once called Nesbitt Island.  The present day 101 Highway crosses Nesbitt Street where the King property was once located.  Nearby is a well known landmark, the leaning chimney of the textile mill.  Edward had a nickname, Gas King, probably derived from his occupation."
      Quoted from an email from Carolyn Brooks, Edward's great great granddaughter.

      On the marriage record of Edward's daughter in 1880, she says her father's occupation is 'mechanic'
      On the marriage record of Edward's daughter Maud in 1883 she gives Edward's occupation as 'carpenter'
      On the marriage record in 1883 son James gives his parents names as 'Edward and Caroline' and his father's occupation as 'wheelwright'.
      On son James' 2nd marriage record in 1902 he gives his father's occupation as freight manager.
      In Hutchison's Directory of 1865 Edward is listed as "laborer, house, Island point, near Gas works"
      In Hutchison's Directory of 1867 Edward is listed as "railway station".
