WALLACE, DEAN, MITCHELL, JOHNSTON of Bruce & Huron CountyI donated this album and its photos to the Bruce County Museum in 2000. I had a lot of research I did on the family, plus work done by someone else, but I can't find it in my piles of papers.
Way back in 2000 I posted this message to the Upper-Canada Mailing List
From: "Lorine McGinnis Schulze"
Recently I purchased an old photo album full of photos dating from the 1860s to about 1920. There are several very early photos which look to be of the Civil War period (early to mid 1860s). This album was inscribed (no date) to
"Mrs. Martha J. Wallace, A present from friend[s?] A. M. W. [difficult to read but it is definitely an A. and what looks like commas between two more letters - M and W]
One photo of three young women was labelled and dated:
March 19, 1916 in Kincardine
I suspect that the Martha Dean of Ripley is the Mrs. Martha J. Wallace who owned the album. There is another photo of a young woman with a baby, labelled "Martha" which looks like the Martha Dean in the 1916 photo.
Many photos are labelled with the town in which they were taken:
One was of two children perhaps teens labelled "Margt. and Geo. Christopher" Could this be the Margaret Hamilton in the 1916 photo?
One was of a young man labelled "Jimmie Mitchell" and this was taken in Clinton. Another which is possibly him with a young woman (their wedding??) was taken in Lucknow
Another labelled photo was that of "Chas Johnston" taken in Goderich. There appear to be several pictures of this same man although they are not labelled.
I would very much like to see these photos find a home with a descendant of the families.
If you know any of these names, or know anyone searching these surnames in the Bruce and Huron Co. area please contact me in private email.
I did have someone contact me but I no longer have that email of course. After quite a bit of research I ended up giving the photos to the Museum so if you want to see them you will have to make a trip there. I do have some pictures I took, here they are for your enjoyment. Just click on the thumbnails to see the larger image
