“Gaga” was born 122 years ago today, November 11th 1895. A couple more pictures to share. I found a school picture of her when she was about 6 years old when she was living in Hammonds Plain, Nova Scotia. There are 41 people in the picture and 34 names written on the back by someone. I’ve included a scan of the picture and the back of the picture. There appear to be many cousins also in the same school with the last names of Haverstock, Melvin, Romans and Eisenhauer. I have my genealogy work cut out for me with this information.
I think Muriel would be the girl to the farthest right in the picture with the long dark hair, and the girl behind her would be her older sister Louise (who Jim thinks looks like Bev). Her younger sister Olive does not appear to be in the picture.
I have been able to connect with a man named Tom Crease from Canada who is a grandson of Muriel’s sister, Louise Chester Thomas who married Frederick Crease on September 14, 1915. Below are a couple pictures he was able to share.
Here is a picture with Muriel and Frank Davenport with their two oldest daughters Olive and Lois who were both born in Canada.
Here is a picture I am guessing with Muriel and her two sisters and her dad Louis Nathaniel Thomas.
Finally here is a picture with Muriel and I am guessing her two sisters. Her dad passed away in 1951 and her mom in 1948. If she was there for a funeral she would be in her mid-fifties and she looks older than that to me. Her sister Louise passed away in 1966 and Olive was still alive in 1977 so I am guessing this is sometime between 1951 and 1966.
