!REFERENCE: Giles Family of Cumberland County, Nova Scotia62
!REFERENCE: 2007 "A bit more on this family! The Giles house is still standing in Victoria and it was the original Henney home. It was across the road from it's present location and was moved up when the original Giles home burned to the ground. I don't have an exact date for the move but John Feeley was a young boy as the maple tree at the bottom of the driveway was planted when John was 12 and there were originally 3 trees and John helped to plant the trees and the house had been moved a few years before but John couldn't remember for sure exactly how old he was when the house was moved. The original house on the property was about 1/4 larger and there was a carriage house on the West side.", https://beta.groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/nscumber/conversations/topics/18257
