I was curious if you had any information on a small school that used to be on the Bathurst line west ( what it’s called now but maybe concession 11?) It’s built on part lot 1 Dalhousie township on the western side of said lot and the foundation is still present. We have owned the property for a number of years and have found little info. Sorry that should read part lot 9. Owner of the lot in 1879 was a B. Avery. Owner of the east side of lot 9 was a Cameron. Thanks.
Doyou have any information? Please email me sav_77@yahoo and I will forward it to Dan Hunton. Thank you!
These photos are from Google Earth. I never seem to get away from the computer long enough to take pictures.
Looking for any information on this woman and house so we can document it. Please leave comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ashton Winter Carnival– late 70s- Donna Farrell right- Mrs. T. Crigger (Ashton) middle
Mrs. Crigger turned 100 last year and remained in her home until a few months ago… Her daughter Marion Jones who lives on the Dwyer Hill Road has been helping her maintain her home. Mrs. Crigger belongs to the ladies Orange Lodge out of Munster. She belongs to the Ashton United Church and has been very active in the church, as well as being a member or our United Church Women’s group. She is now in Fairview Manor in Almonte.
The house belongs to Thelma Crigger she celebrated her 100th birthday last October. She raised her children there. She is a grandmother, a great grandma and a great great grandmother. I am the wife of one of her grandsons.
Her son Gordon and I were good friends growing up and later spent times at each others houses (his in Winnipeg).There were 3 boys, Ellard is deceased; Harold out west somewhere. I just reestablished contact with Gordon when I realized it had been almost 20 years since we were in touch-Thelma other than she put up with our shenanigans. She liked to garden and spent quality time there. Spring was an important time as she planted several very long rows of Gladioli (perhaps for the church) and of course veggies…..
