Daniel Hugh Sutherland, 1878-1977
Railway Builder & Commanding Officer WWI No. 2 Construction Battalion

Presented by: Mary Beth Sutherland
Mary Beth Sutherland developed an interest in family history while working on a grade 9 school project. It was then that she started asking family history questions.

In 2015 she was approached by George Borden with regard to the upcoming centennial of the formation of the No. 2 Construction Battalion to see if the family had any information on the Battalion, of which her grandfather was the Commanding Officer. After searching her grandparents’ home she discovered an unknown side of her grandfather through letters, papers, and photos. This collection presented a previously unexplored trove of information about her family's history.
Mary Beth is the daughter of Joan (Caudle) and the late Rev. Donald R. Sutherland. She grew up and attended school in Whycocomagh, CB. She graduated from Mount Allison University and thereafter concluded her studies at the Aberdeen Hospital School of Nursing, New Glasgow, NS.
She married David Sutherland of Alma NS in 1984, they now live in River John NS.
They have 3 adult children Margaret (Sam), Sandy and Emily and 3 young grandchildren, William, George, and Isabel.
