“Can You Guess?” – Week 11

Here’s an oldie. Can you guess who these children are. Note also the woman in the background. Bonus points for knowing where this house was/is.

From Linda Bernice Veinot Poole: This is my photo, it is my mother on the right, Bernice Mason Veniot, Her little brother in the middle, Carl Mason, and her sister on the left,Olive Mason Pearl. That is my great grandmother coming around the house, Naomi Baker Mason known to me as “Gomie Mason’, mother to Ferdinand Mason. My grandmother Stella Cross Mason took this picture and told me who they were.

From Peggy Langille: I was born in this house.  My room was the top right window. It was my grandfather’s house (Thomas Heisler) and it was situated where our Post Office now stands. Behind the walking lady is the barn roof.

“Can You Guess?” – Week Ten

This week we have a challenge for you. This photo was taken 60 years ago in an island home. Can you guess who this is?

Answer:  The lady in the picture is Naomi Mason. She was the mother of Hilda Cross (Hilda was Barry’s grandmother). Naomi’s son, Ferdinand Mason and wife Stella, went on to live in and own the house. Ferdy’s and Stella’s sons all made homes on the island, one being Carl who owned Lucy’s house. Their daughter, Olive Pearl, was Bev’s mom. Naomi lived in the house above Lucy, now owned by Donna Nebenzahl.
