cutout - undated

We were pleased to learn a few days ago that at least one member of the crew of the much-written-about replica of the famed ship Bounty, built recently at Lunenburg, is a native of eastern Guysborough County. The second engineer on this ship, now on her way to the South Seas to be featured in a movie, is Murray Munroe, of Chester, NS, a native of the fishing village of Whitehead, not far from Canso. Murray is a son of the late Captain Thurlow Munroe who was well known along this shore and Murray's mother still resides in Whitehead, as does his brother Ainslie, who was our source of information in this case. All who know him hereabouts wish Murray the best of luck in his cruise to the Southern Seas.

Note from contributer, Peggy Feltmate - Another undated clipping from unnamed paper. This one concerns Murray Munroe of Whitehead, who married Ada Chandler and had two daughters. Murray's parents were Thurlow Munroe (1878-1935) and Mary "Minnie" Uloth (1881-1970) (we always called her "Minnie Thurlow" and she owned a parakeet that talked.) Thurlow was son of "Ned" Edward and Martha (Uloth) Munroe, and Minnie was daughter of John Samuel Uloth and Margaret Jane George. Here's the clipping about Murray:
Note from Rose: The HMS bounty replica was built in 1960, so this article must have been sometime around then.
