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 Letters of John Buchanan and Mary Ilan–Appleton– from Doug McCarten

The Letters of John Buchanan and Mary Ilan–Appleton– from Doug McCarten

Doug McCarten sent me these letters  from my grandparents George and Amy Buchanan…to his sister and brother-in-law in Arizona in 1921

This was a letter from his Grandmother and Grandfather to his Grandfather’s sister and brother-in-law who had moved to Arizona in 1917. I am forwarding it as it provides a snapshot of what life was like on the farm in Appleton in 1921!  

The Appleton farm as it is a beautiful stone house right on the Mississippi just downstream from the Golf course on the other side! 150 acres and 5 barns originally but some gone now. When we sold the farm when moving to town it was sold to John and Edith Clark and was used by them as a Chinchilla farm. They became close friends with my Mom and Dad and I always enjoyed visiting! John died many decades ago and Edith lived there in her own!–Doug McCarten

 

Thanks Doug– we are now documenting this forever so the information will be out there.

Send your family memories and photos to be documented forever to Linda: sav_77@yahoo.com

I have been writing about downtown Carleton Place Bridge Street for months and this is something I really want to do. Come join me in the Domino’s Parking lot- corner Lake Ave and Bridge, Carleton Place at 11 am Saturday September 16 (rain date September 17) for a free walkabout of Bridge Street. It’s history is way more than just stores. This walkabout is FREE BUT I will be carrying a pouch for donations to the Carleton Place Hospital as they have been so good to me. I don’t know if I will ever do another walking tour so come join me on something that has been on my bucket list since I began writing about Bridge Street. It’s always a good time–trust me.
