Searching for Henry Beaufain and Augusta Grobe




Picture taken at Civitan Hall Monthly auction in Almonte. In most cases I try and rescue them– but this one I could not.

So today I spent many hours trying to find this family– Beaufain is a rare name– there were a couple in Lac Megantic, and then some in  Charleston, South Carolina. But every corner I  reached to came to an abrupt stop.


If anyone has any ideas– please contact  me. I am curious. So Tammy Marion came up with the answer.. Thanks:)
