Note: Esther, who married William, was apparently named after her grandmother, Esther (Osborn) Caines. William Herridge, widower, married again on 08 August 1898. His second wife was Rachel (Grandy) Reid, widow of Philip Reid. Rachel was 34 years old, daughter of Mary Ann Grandy. In an interesting turn of events, when Williamís father, John1, and Estherís mother, Sarah, married in 1879, William and Esther became stepbrother and sister as well as husband and wife.

Note: In 1935 Reginald, at 26, was a fisherman, engaged in the Cod Fishery. His earnings for the previous year had been $47. Reginaldís age is listed as 30 in the 1945 Census, but this could be an error on the part of the Enumerator or the Transcriber. It is most likely the same person as there is no other Reginald Pike in the area.
