This was from my unknown photo collection. Gus McManus and children Ambrose and Gertrude. I think this might be Barry’s Bay.. Love the outhouse on the left hand side.
So guess what? We found out some information thanks to:
Growing up in Madawaska
Wörmke von Krining –-Looked at some census records for you. 1921 this family in Kendall Twp. Timiskaming, ON. Augustus 37, wife Mary 38, Gertrude 9, Ambrose 7, Dorothy 4. All Irish, Rc and born in Ontario. 1911 a Gus McManus and wife Lizzie (a first wife?) in Cochrane, wife Lizzie (a first wife?) in Cochrane, Temiskaming. ON. 1901 a Gus McManus as working on farm of James O’Donnell in McNab Twp, Renfrew Co. 1891 an Augustine McManus living with widowed father Dennis and 7 siblings in McNab Twp.
Wörmke von Krining-– Gertrude and Ambrose were 9 and 7 in 1921. Dorothy was 4. No Dorothy in pic, so date pic to about 1916. I would say it was likely taken up north.
