Some time ago a gentleman by the name of Dick Costello sent me a message with a picture and asked if I knew where and when it might have been taken. I didn't know and still don't know but I took the picture and enlarged the windows of the hall and on each of the windows was writing. One has "....des Societe" and the other has "...Sante Joseph"

The following photos submitted by June Boyles - eandjboyles [at] pei [dot] sympatico [dot] ca.

These are a large number of PEI photos of interest to the families of Samuel Edward Dawson, His wife Mary Nelder Boyle and their relatives.. These were sent to June by a cousin out west. Normally I don't post so many photos at a time, but this should be a very interesting series for anyone from Summerside or Albany, so I have made an exception.

The following photos submitted by Aileen Seguino - Ralph9910 [at] aol [dot] com.

Picture assumed to be taken in Canada, left to right: Charles Edward (Ned) Burgess, son of Richard Burdge & Mary Larkin. On the back of the picture is looks like Uncle Charles , then Aunt Meg cannot finish last name is Mi �. And on the very left Maggie Pat looks like Mict el. .Have no idea the age of thepicture.. and certainly not sure of writing on back. Ned is probably in his teens and he was born in 1898, Gram Burgess came at least before my guess is Ned is 14 or 15 years old�

There were two ladies an Aunt Meg and a Maggie Pat in the photo to the right. I believe these are the same two ladies. Probably from lot 42.. And possibly from the Larkin or Burdge/Burge families.


It looks like some kind of celebration day with the flag. Probably Victoria Day. I am sure that this picture is related to either the Larkin or Burdge/Burge families , originating from lot 42.

"These photos are not mysterious but many descendants might be interested in seeing them so maybe you could post them for a week or 2.

The other is of her sister Hannah (Moore) Dolman 1784-1864 and her daughter Jane. Hannah did not come to PEI with the rest of the family in 1807 but was willed a farm on the Loyalist Road by her father David Moore 1746-1828. It was always called Dolman's Farm "
