I have highlighted in blue above my great grand parents in Blue and Stephen’s grandparents in red. These would all be grandparents to my children. Note Mary Knowelton was great Grandmother she was a Scott who on the death of her husband Lieutenant Joseph Scott she remarried to Daniel Knowelton. Joseph died 1761 shortly after or on route to NS in 1761. What I found interesting is that Mary and Joseph’s son Ephriam Scott and John Carter may have been neighbours or at the very least knew one another, and Generations later Stephen and I met and married. I wonder if John Carter served in the Company of Lieutenant Joseph Scott and Daniel Knowelton.

I know Sandra already has a very
good write-up from
Dad’s special trips were always up to visit Uncle Austin and if he knew that was where we were headed – well, he was ready also.
We would carry along a massive lunch and big thermoses of tea which were shared with Uncle Austin and his many cats. Our biggest laugh we had at Uncle Austin’s I remember was once when Mom had made a big pot of stew – and we had it sitting on Austin’s stove warming up. Next thing we look – the cats are sitting on the table and beginning to feed off some plates. Needless to say, these animals were given short shift by my Dad. Although he loved animals – their place was not on the table where he planned to eat!
When Uncle Austin burned to death in his home – that was a most traumatic event in both Mom and Dad’s lives and I am sure they never fully recovered from it. He was dearly loved by them both!”

We had a nice steep hill out beside the house and I can remember Mom getting on Dad’s big wide sleds to go down the hill with us. Layton would be quite small at that time, Lyle not yet born. We also had an old barrel that we used to get in and roll down the hill and this was a scary ride!
There was also a small brook that
meandered along the
After my mother got her driver’s license (in her later years – maybe in her early 50’s) she was very brave and would take many of her lady friends when Dad wanted to stay home – and go on picnics and various excursions. They went as far as Prince Edward Island and down through the Valley on several trips.
Even as Mom got older – she still loved to get in a car and be on her way some place! If the car was moving – then Mom would like to go either shopping or visiting. It did not matter too much! I know I enjoyed many visits with her older friends (around the country) as on these jaunts, after our visits, we would either carry a lunch or go out and have a special treat at a restaurant.”
