Hi Bob, a friend found on ancestry ca , I think they are at their sandpiper property. Annie Fearman.

 Larry was the youngest, Young George the oldest, he got polio when he was around 20. Plus Jim says Sammy said one had died and was buried at the hospital. So 15 in total.

Not long ago our family was notified by our long time neighbour, Richard Ladouceur, about a discovery he had made during the deconstruction of a wall in the retirement home my great grandfather Robert Lea Smith built at 2870 Shingle Spit Rd. Wedged between two framing members he found an old metal stencil that would have likely been used to label produce leaving the island for sale elsewhere. Really exciting find.

I’m Clara Peter’s grandson, Betty Smith’s great grandson and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed wading through your photo records of Hornby Island over the past few years.
