  1. Hi Linda,

    My husband, George Stephen Reaburn, and I ran across your postings on the Morphy-Cram house while researching his family tree on line. We were very interested to see that his grandfather, George William Reaburn who was a long time owner of the house, was an artist. We would dearly love to have a piece of his art work. Are you aware of any more of his paintings? We saw the two that you have shown in your articles and are wondering if there are more? Stephen is the son of Bert Reaburn and grandson of G.W. Reaburn and Lucinda May Finlayson, whom you have mentioned in some of your articles.

    • Hi Jody!! I have been living in Springside Hall since 1981. I was fortunate to meet May before she died a few times and Bert once at her funeral. The far room on the second room I still call Bert’s room in honour of Bert. So far as I know there is only this one painting. George gave it to Blair White our former neighbour across the street and he has ‘lent ‘ it to me for my lifetime, and upon my passing goes to his oldest son. So far as I know no one has never mentioned his art around this area and that saddens me greatly as I thought he only did this for Blair. Wish I could help more and you can always contact me at sav_77@yahoo.com Linda


      • Thanks so much for your reply! I am an artist myself and I find this folk art amazing. I had asked Marion Reaburn last summer about G.B.’s art and she didn’t seem to know anything about it. I am happy that one of his art pieces has survived.

  2. That would be great, looking at that picture he would have had to have painted others but like many artist their paintings weren’t valued at the time and they may be gone now.
