The Lanark County Genealogical Society received a lovely note from John Rogers in Carleton Place who says he has a treasure-trove of information he has collected over the years, concerning ROGERS, BAKER, and ROBERTSON surnames.
His Mother, brother and two sisters were born in Lanark County, but grew up in Ashton in a home his grandfather built on the Goulbourn side of Ashton Station Road. His Dad’s family moved to the area in 1960, with his aunts attending Carleton Place High School. They once owned the old “u pick” strawberry farm ( Charlie’s and Beckwith Berries) off Cemetery side road up until 1968. His Mother still has cousins in the Carleton Place area and his my sister still lives in Carleton Place.
