At the age of about 33, Joseph MACKEY was in France in late 1918 to early 1919. He is believed to be from St. Brendan's, an island in Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador.

Several years ago, Joseph MACKEY's daughter had been communicating with the lady in France, who at the time was moving. Unfortunately, for some reason or other, the lady in France could not be located again.

Mr. Robert Royle, from St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, is attempting to re-unite the Bracelet with Joseph MACKEY's descendents and would appreciate any information anyone can provide on Peggy Schmitt, in France, or Joseph MACKEY, from Newfoundland and Labrador.

[Editor] If anyone can provide any information at all, it would be very appreciated if you could contact me at the address below. Thank you.
