This picture hangs upstairs in the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum and yesterday I decided to research them.

Annie Bella Brunton and Adam Wesley Jones were married June 19, 1913 at the groom’s house in Prospect, Ontario. Together, they operated  a farm in Beckwith township. They had 4 children:

This picture still hangs in their old farm house – a place where my parents (their grand daughter and her husband) still farm and still call home! I live next door in his son, Harold Jones’s, house! Great to see this article/photo about my great grandparents and our farm.

Adam Jones was my Great Uncle. My grandfather Peter Jones lived beside Uncle Adam until 1968 and relocated with his son George Jones to South Mountain, Ontario. My father was Gilbert Jones whom resided in Brinston since 1970. I remember going to see Brenda and Barry when I was little, my goodness that was the late 60’s
Lloyd Brunton My aunt Bella and uncle Adam too. She and I used fight all the time. Good natured fighting of course. The last time I saw her she was in a nursing home on High Street and I was there to play for some musical thing. I had a beard then, and it was rather ugly, and she looked at me and didn’t say hello or anything she just said “You get that thing shaved off before the sun goes down”. I said something like “Nice to see you too Bella”. Bye the way, to the lady who posted this, I went to school with Gilbert. Knew him well

    • Was the Harold Jones in this article the one who lived in Prospect? If so, his wife was Marjorie who taught at Caldwell Street Public School when I first went to teach there. She was a lovely lady. There is a new housing development going in on their farm now. They had moved to the red brick bungalow across the road from their farm. I noticed when I was going by that they had named the road Harold Jones Way.
