Mr. & Mrs. C. Robertson & Family
The children in the picture according to the writing on the back of the photo are Bert 5 years, Marmie 3 yrs & Billy 1 yr. The photo was taken by J.L. James, Owen Sound, Canada.

I have found that this picture is of Charles Findley Robertson's 2nd family. Charles born 26 Nov 1876 in Ontario, Canada and died in 1942. Charles' parents were James ROBERTSON born Nov 1841, Scotland died 17 May 1909 St. Vincent, Ontario, Canada and Catherine Elizabeth GROOMS born 4 Jun 1844 Napanee, Ontario, Canada died 23 Nov 1928 St. Vincent, Ontario, Canada. His 2nd wife was Emma Jane SHORTT, daughter of William and Mary SHORTT. She was born 22 Mar 1881 in St Vincent and died in 1956. Their children were Charles "Bert" Albert ROBERTSON, Mary "Marmie" ROBERTSON, William "Bill" ROBERTSON and Clifford ROBERTSON (not pictured and probably born after 1917, when I think this picture was taken).

Charles was the brother of my 2nd Great-Grandmother, Janet/Janette ROBERTSON (Weadbrock).

If you are a descendant of any of these people, I would love to hear from you so that we can exchange information.

(The original photo is now in the possession of Becky (CLIFFORD) Zuydwegt, who sent the image to me.)
