Joie Donegan BOND b: 2 JAN 1902 d: 16 MAY 1982
Still searching for information on Annie Joey Cram and Joie Donegan Bond. As you see, and thanks to Dianne Saunders and Stephen Collie, I learned just a little bit more about her. It’s spelled Joie not Joey and all this time I had been looking for Joey not Joie– but in reality it didn’t help much– as after hours in newspaper archives I found nothing
“Stephen’s great grandmother Mary Elizabeth Bond (1864-1954) was the sister of John Henry Bond. John Henry had 7 children and Joie and Henry Lloyd were the two that you referred to. John Henry and his wife Mimi named one of their daughters after his sister Mary Elizabeth ( Stephen’s great-grandmother). Mary Elizabeth Bond-Senior married James Edward Bennett and his son James Henry Bennett was the original owner of Bennett meat Market in CP. We have a record book of their business in CP. James Henry retired and since his son had gone to war passed the business over to his brother Austin”.—Dianne Saunders
In 1895 Joie Bond’s parents wed:
August 15, 1895 – marriage
At the residence of the bride’s uncle, on August 7, by Rev. John Grenfel, Mr. J. H. Bond to Miss Mina McDonald, all of Carleton Place.
At Carleton Place on Aug. 7, at the residence of the bride’s uncle, by Rev. John Grenfell, Mr. J. H. Bond of Carleton Place, son of the late Mr . Jacob Bond to Miss Mina McDonald, niece of Mr. Thomas Stephens of Carleton Place.
Joie was born in Carleton Place, Beckwith Township, Lanark, Ontario, Canada. Records state:
1920’s machine operator– but definitely not Joie.
In the 1921 Census of Canada Joie was known as a machine operator and made 600 dollars a year. But no mention is made where she worked.

*Photo Information–Thanks to Stephen Collie and Dianne Saunders…
This is the Bennett Family Photo from Christmas Day 1903 and the man in the centre holding the baby (my late uncle, Austin [Aunnie) Bennett] was James Bennett my Great Grandfather and a former Mayor of Carleton Place. To his right is his wife, my Great Grandmother Elizabeth (nee Bond)
In the Front Row are the two twins Dorcas and Martha. Not everyone was there, some were away visiting in Munster but to note in the Front Row, 2nd in from left, was my Grandfather Harry Bennett, of Bennett’s Butcher shop. Harry and his wife my grandmother Annie (nee Boyle) lived on Flora Street for years.
The house in this photo still stands on Herriott Street, at the Northeast corner of Herriott and Flora, now clad in white vinyl siding.
Interesting that the climate changed as much in the early 20th century as it does now, coats are unbuttoned and opened, women not wearing coats at all, Dorcas and Martha in their petticoats.
