I note that on page 69 there is a 1908 class photo of a Vernon School class, courtesy of Peggy Carss and Chris MacPhail. I note that one of the students is a 14 year old Pearl Acres, my grandmother. Also in the photo is her younger brother Gilbert Acres.
The photo in the book is too small to make out her features, and I was wondering if it would be possible to contact the owners of the photo, or to have them contact me to see if I could get a copy of the photo to share with all of my cousins.
Similarly, the 1938 photo, on page 70 has my aunt, Thelma McDonald, in it.
Any assistance in obtaining copies of these two photos would be greatly appreciated. (I was happy to provide him with both these photos.)
I can be contacted at this e-mail email@example.com, or phone number of 613-836-9014, or home address of 5 Oakfern Cr. Stittsville, K2S 1E5.
You may or not know, that the Acres family came from South March, and Pearl's mother was a Richardson. I found it interesting that your book mentions that the school house built in South March was built with stone from the Richardson quarry. I was not aware that the there was a Richardson quarry, and will be looking into this as part of my family research.
One further question, Pearl's father-in-law was an Alexander Kennedy was a school teacher in the 1800s and is believed to have taught in Carleton County. He is an elusive character who seems to have disappeared. He was possibly married twice, the first time to a Christy Jane McArthur. Have you run across him in your research, or would you have any suggestions as to where I could find out more information on him?
Thank you for any assistance that you may be able to provide me.
