Subject: Objet : shipwreck The Miracle- May 19 1847
Date: March 8, 2013
I am interested in anything that concerns the Miracle, wrecked in the Magdalen Islands in may 1847.
Special interests: Passengers named Brophy. My children's great-great-great-grandfather is John James Brophy (c.1835-1867) who had three children with Mary Eve McLean of Entry Island. Family legend is he was an orphan of twelve after the wreck, raised by the islanders. Other legends say he had a brother who was sent to Pictou.
