The following biographical sketches of prominent Cumberland County residents have been extracted from the Nova Scotia: blue book and encyclopedia, published in 1932. The original publication often includes additional information on the individual's educational attainments, society memberships, etc. This data has not been reproduced here.

Some of the original biographical sketches are more detailed than others, so the amount of data available for each person varies. The biographical information originally was provided by the subject, so it is presumably accurate. Information on religion and military service, where available, is included to facilitate further research in other records.

Please note that I am NOT actively researching any of these individuals or families and so I am unable to do look-ups or provide any additional information on the persons listed here.
