Joann Voyce 31 Herriott St 1930’s

Joann Voyce The house on the Immediate left with the veranda was in the 1950’s a nursing home where the elderly ladies did the baking and cooking and the elderly gents did the gardening. The all sat out on chairs on that veranda in the sunshine.

Joann Voyce One of the houses is now 75 Herriott St. Up on the face of the brick you can read a cement plaque with the initials WM for William Miller, For years this home was occupied by the Weedmarks and Lois (Weedmark) Bennett told me about my great grandfather’s initials being there. Another one was 98 Herriott St.

Rachel McRae Joann Voyce that’s them! My grandfather always says he was to inherit this house but something happened with the will and he didn’t! But I never take the time to go see which one it actually is on Herriott St.
