This week I received a few scrapbooks from Diane Juby wife of Mississippi Mill councillor John Dalgity. John had contacted me about them and I vowed to record as much as I can from the scrapbooks with Lanark County history and then after they could decide where to donate them.

These scrapbooks were made by Christina ‘tina’  Camelon who married married John Buchanan. I am over the moon that I can share all this with you thanks to Diane Juby. These are national treasures.

Hi Linda… these are my grandparents. Christina ‘tina’  Camelon married John Buchanan. He died late 40s from TB and worked for railroad at Glentay. The bottom pic has my dad in it. Allan Buchanan. Please enjoy and if you want more info contact me . Thanks so much for doing this… maybe you could say they were from her scrapbooks. She was a widow early on in life…. great at baking and sewing .

The House on the Hill — Up the 8th Line of  Ramsay — Jaan Kolk Files

It began with a question to the Lanark County Genealogical Society— Chris Michie asked: “Is there any information on the old house in the bush at the corner of Camelon road and Ramsey concession #8??”

James Scott was listed as a carriage and buggy manufacturer– was this his home at the bottom of the hill? Some people call this the tannery.

Dawn Jones– The Clappertons resided in this house in the 70’s. Ian was his name. His first wife was a teacher of home economics at Naismith. I was sure that he and second wife still lived there. I always thought the Tannery was the school house as that is what we called it. The school house is owned by the MacPherson family

 

Jaan Kolk That is, I think, in the NW corner of Ramsay Conc. VIII, lot 16. The 1879 Belden Atlas marks a carriage shop at about that location. James Scott, listed as a carriage manufacturer, owned lot 16 in concession VII across the road. Here is crop from the Atlas. 

I presume The Tannery references the tannery marked in the 1879 Belden atlas. As James Scott was listed as a carriage and buggy manufacturer, it would have made sense for him to have a tannery as well.

30715266_10155702234976886_9133007385235816448_n.jpg

Ottawa historian Jaan Kolk tried to help, and our local historical gal Jennifer E. Ferris contributed greatly to try and find out who owned the former home.

30653044_10155702234956886_6547453436869214208_n

I felt like I was standing back in time as I walked up the hill accentuated with fences from a time gone by.

30688407_10155702234806886_3134745446501580800_n.jpg

The house was not hard to spot, but had the trees been in full foliage. A clear view might have been difficult.

No automatic alt text available.Jennifer E Ferris—1863 map Ramsay twp. Possibly R. Yule with a wee line drawn to the lower box. There is a Robert Yuill on land record at that time on 3/4 of an acre.

30656721_10155702234826886_3546554401265025024_n.jpg

It was a house that appeared to have long been empty. The house seemed to be standing on memory alone.

30708503_10155702234836886_2032428938793320448_n.jpg

Imperfection is still beautiful, and all I wanted to do is paint sunlight on the side of the door.

Jennifer E Ferris I remember someone living there when I was younger. They had a dog that would bark when you went by on a bike. It looked run down then.

So what can you tell us about this home?

When you turn off the main road you have to expect things you would not see every day. These signs were a few feet down the road

Deb Knapton I believe that belonged (belongs) to Barr’s who built the bungalow across the road and whose family built the split level on the same property just ahead up Camelon. I think there used to be a sign on the property placed by the historical society. There were several right at that corner (Leckie’s Corners), pretty sure they have all disappeared.

Thanks to Jaan Kolk and Jennifer E. Ferris for helping out!
