My cousin Steve was kind enough to make a trip to the Woodlawn Cemetery in Dartmouth to take some photos of the grave of the Nova Scotian version of the Babes in the Woods folk tale. The were 2 little girls (ancestors on my dad’s side of the family), Margaret & Elizabeth Meagher, who got lost in the woods outside Dartmouth and perished. This is a story my aunts told us as kids along with many other stories. We would sit around the kitchen table listening drinking too strong Red Rose tea listening to the adults telling tales about the old days. This story and a number of others from those days were the inspiration for “Meagher’s Children”, a song off the new WIR album.
