Everyone matters in the past and this is why we are doing this, so in years to come their faces don’t become nameless. It was was with great pleasure that we could document Maggie Graham Arthur today thanks to Penny Trafford
Linda Gallipeau-Johnston-– I knew the lady in the middle as Vera Patent.
Penny Trafford Maggie (Graham) Arthur on the left. I think the woman in the middle might be Vera Splane
Penny Trafford Yes, you are right. Vera Patten and for some reason I think she might have been Vic Splane’s sister.
Linda Gallipeau-Johnston I think she was related to Pansy Splane somehow.
Penny Trafford This grade one reader belonged to Maggie Graham. Maggie was the Great Grandmother of my two girls. She gifted this grade one reader to my eldest daughter Angie when Angie was six years old in grade one.
