Imagine Bill Hart's and Ruth Hammill's surprise when they saw pictures of their relatives on my website! Bill's daughter, Susan Hart Partridge is the secretary at my school, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Barrhaven. When she showed her father and aunt my website, they saw a number of 'Hammills' in a 1920 picture at S.S. No. 4 Nepean in Bell's Corners. (Please note the correction in spelling. The correct spelling is Hammill, not Hamel.) After chatting to more relatives at St. Basil's Church the next Sunday after church, Rod Hammill was excited to get his hands on my book as his father, Leo Hammill, is in the picture on page 23.
