Welcome to Scrapbook Memories, the purpose of this page is to bring forward those old pictures from your scrapbook so we might all have a look at what Simcoe County was like decades ago. I ask that you help contribute to this page by going through your old pictures and send me a scanned copy of the ones you would like to see here; i.e. a picture of an old building, a tavern that no longer exists, an old railway station, etc.

1. The Lane family camping. The picture says- M or N Bogart, Branch - Big Bay Point, Lake Simcoe. The adults are my great grandparents, Charles James Lane, born in Barrie and Annie Montgomery from Collingwood. My grandfather Charles Lane is probably the little boy second from the left, sitting on a rock. He was born in 1879, so the picture must date from 1885-1887 or so.

2. The Lane Boys - from the same camping trip as the other picture, but not in as good shape. Alfred Lane is the tall boy on the right. He was the oldest and born in 1873 in Collingwood. He is not in the first picture. I think my grandfather Charles is the boy in front and the others are George, William Alexander and Edward Franklin. Charles and George were born in Innisfil and William and Edward in Barrie. There was one girl, Cora, who is in the first picture.

1.This is my great great grandfather John Marr, who passed away in 1930. Prior to that time he was living in Collingwood. He married several times. Does anyone recognize the woman in these photo's as either Annie Livingstone, Lottie Cahill-McDougal or Isabella Kerr? (3 photo's. One with group of people standing outside of a barn, another of my Grandfather by himself and a third with my grandfather, the unknown woman and two children)

2. In the 1940's my mother remembers visiting "Uncle Harry" and "Aunt Paulie" in New Lowell with her Grandparents, Thomas and Mary Marr. Mom felt that they were not really related to the family. She remembers possible last names of either Kerr or Sumner. I am hoping to find out who this couple were as I believe they do indeed fit into our family tree. I have attached 2 photo's which do not show much, but they were taken at Uncle Harry and Aunt Paulie's house. Uncle Harry is in one of the photo's and my g-grandmother Mary Marr is in another with Uncle Harry. (2 photo's all taken at the same location. One with Harry, one with my grandmother and Harry)

3. In the 1940's my great Aunt owned and operated "Marrs Tourist Camp" on Hwy 11, Cumberland Beach. Present day there is a recycle place on Hwy 11 near Cumberland Beach and on the side of the building are yellow letters which I wonder if they are from the sign out front of my Aunt's place. Does anyone know if this is the building and the actual location of "Marr's Tourist Camp" ? (one photo of Marrs Tourist Camp, Cumberland Beach)

Hugh was born on Islay in 1832 to Archibald Currie and Mary McDougall on Cattadale farm. Mary was born in 1831 also on Islay to John Connel and Margaret Connel.

These photos come from My Aunt's box of old family photos. She is 92 yrs young and had a stroke many years ago which destroyed her early memories. Her grandfather and mother were John and Mary Leeson Graham who lived south and west of Cookstown on the original family farm. It was taken over by John Leeson Graham at his father's death.The maternal family were descended from William and Mary Solomon in Rosemount. If any one could identify these pictures I would appreciate it.

The trees were kept pruned so that they would be thick rather than tall and skinny. The dog in the photo is Alfred dog "Pat".

This photo was taken of William Norman Patton aboaut 1917 before he went overseas to fight in World War 1. His father was William Francis Patton who married Martha Rogers. She ws the daughter of George and Emma Rogers of Sunnidale. George Rogers was born in 1826 son of John and Ann Rogers. He came to Canada with his grandparents were Sunnidale pioneers. They were Mr. S. Fisher and Mrs. Fisher. I have not been able to find their names listed anywhere but I think Mrs. Fisher's name may have been Martha. She was Mr. Fisher's second wife and they immigrated from England when they were in their 70's. Amazing to think at that age they were pioneers of the Sunnidale area. Even more amazing is that in England Mr. Fisher would have lived a fairly refined life as he was a book publisher. Mr. George Rogers wrote memoirs of sorts which my brother in law has a copy of. Life was definitely very difficult for these people. They seemed to have prospered and had fairly large families some of which I am sure still live in this area. It would be great to rebuild their history. William Francis Patton was the son of Daniel Patton and Maria Lennox who lived in Toronto and Innisfil.

This picture came to me from a fellow I went to Public School with, over 60 years ago !!!!! Arnold Norrena, lives now, I believe in San Francisco, U.S.A. This old log house stood, abandoned, on the Ridge Road, in Shanty Bay, next door to the Brick House, still standing on the corner of the 2nd Concession and the Ridge Road, on the North-East Corner. Now, long gone, I remember it well! Behind the house was a log Root Cellar, about half of it below ground level. When I was in Shanty Bay, from 1940 on, Hal Malcolm, and (I believe an older brother) had a lakefront farm, with the house and barns immediately south of the Shanty Bay School. The house, I think, still stands. Another brother, known as " Doc" Malcolm also lived in the Village. The Family isn't listed as being in Oro in the 1872 Gazeteer.
