Last night my husband came home from visiting his parents with a small suitcase. Inside are papers, documents, school notebooks, letters and who knows what else!
We have not done anything more than open the case. What you see on the left is the top layer.
We had a quick look in the Note Book and it is full of school essays written by Florence Elgie when she was a young girl.
|Ann, Luella & Florence Elgie|
Florence was the sister of my husband's grandmother. She was born in 1914 in St. Mary's Ontario and lived her entire life there, dying in 1996. Florence married Wilbert George "Wib" Hooper (1913 - 1993). The Hooper family was fairly well known in St. Mary's as the owners of Hooper's Dairy.
George and Florence had no children so her papers were passed down to her niece and now to my husband.
