Photo- Darlene Page-Wife Jane Carswell and one of her children we are not sure which one
Lockets have always been a piece of jewellery that allowed a woman to capture and carry her most meaningful personal stories. It always kept life’s most significant moments, ideas, and inspirations close.
Darlene Page, originally from Carleton Place sent me a few pictures yesterday and agreed to share.
“I met a new family member she has this very old locket that she had dated… to turns out it is full of pictures the are etched into the metal with some colour. It dates back to 1840- 1860 and is a daguerreotype photo. We are 98% sure that this man is Alexander Waugh, the first Waugh to immigrate from Ireland and lived in Innisville”.
Photo- Darlene Page- Andrew Waugh with Elizabeth Cram
Darlene is positive that this is a picture of their son Andrew Waugh, Darlene’s 2nd Great Grandfather and Grandmother Elizabeth Cram we think of their wedding. She said he is much younger than the photo etched in metal that she sent me before– Click here.–Searching for Elizabeth Cram–Updates on Andrew Waugh
It is exciting when you met/find new family members and they have photo but don’t know who the faces are until you talk and figure things out!–Darlene Page
