Photos and Clippings of Dorothy Meehan- Brunton– thanks to Lizzie Brunton #1

Hi, so I’m going through a closet of old boxes , photos, letters etc from my Mom and Dads former home. So my Mom wrote lots of letters, stories, and got quite a few published. Here is one of the “Almonte is; The Friendly Town”. I kind of laughed because I saw a post about the water tower in Almonte the other day. I’ll send a pic of the scrapbook stories. I have so many pics and stories!

Read- Old St. Mary’s Almonte — Clippings Photos and Memories

Family love from Lizzie Brunton–Hi. I got together with a bunch of my cousins yesterday. It was fantastic. My Mom was the oldest of seven from Almonte. You’ve mentioned Joanna Meehan Harrington that is one of my Moms sister. So, we were at my Aunt Marion McGahey’s in Kemptville. Marion is the last sibling left. It was such a delight to all be together again. I wanted to tell you, I’m not sure why.
There was my Mom Dorothy Meehan Brunton, Gerald Meehan -fiddle player, Donnie Cochran- he was killed tragically by the train in Almonte when he was just a young boy (my Nanny and Grandpa Meehan adopted him as a baby), Stella Meehan, Kathleen (Kitty) Meehan Thibert, Marion Meehan McGahey, Joanna Meehan Harrington, and Shirley Anne Meehan. They grew up on Country Street and called it, “The Backroad”. I should mention my grandparents names, Stella Scott Meehan and Norbert Meehan–So many great stores and history. A legacy.
