Carleton Place resident George Hurdis signed the Chaterton House Hotel Registrar in 1884 and signed for room number 254.
Ted Hurdis of Carleton Place sent this photo and said:
George was my grandfathers brother. He would be the lad on the right standing in the back row. My grandfather Ned is the young boy in the middle holding the flag.
Michelle said: The George Hurdis who signed the hotel register is not the same George Hurdis shown in the family photo. It is possible that it would have been George’s grandfather George Hurdis or perhaps his uncle George Hurdis. #toomanyGeorges
