From Debora Cloutier

Last April my father Cal Saunders passed. When we cleaned out his house I was the one entrusted with anything of historical significance. So I have some photos that I think should be shared as well.

My great great grandfather was Albert Saunders and he built the house at number 5 Catherine St in Carleton Place. His wife was Minnie Harley and he was a carpenter in town. Most of the family lived there, or in the area. My great grandfather owned a house on Townline Rd . He had 5 children there with his first wife and she passed giving birth.  Just at the corner of Catherine St . Richard Arthur Saunders. Great grandfather remarried and had 4 more children.

These photos are tins . They were an amazing treasure to find. My great uncle gave them to me .

My goal is for the family members to have access. It would take me to long to track them down. Hopefully someone sees them. I can be contacted at

Please note– Debora is only interested in info regarding the pictures .


Thank you Debora!!
