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:)
