Pakenham Photo- Marilyn Snedden via the collection of Margie Argue and her late brother Dan Paige– Looks very much like the corner of HWY 29 and White Lake Road….across from what was Mann’s grocery.. Hi Linda…I was just reading the Pakenham history and was going down the rabbit hole and saw a picture you posted in front of the Wayside Inn. It was a young woman standing between two cars. There was a question mark indicating you did not know her name. She was Millie Burgess. Her family was the Preston Burgess family and they lived across the road. Her sister was Lola Forsythe, my husband Paul Ralph’s mother in law. Ria Ralph
