Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

May 11, 2016, Anita Barber Rutledge, from Wakefield, Quebec, donated a copy of the Barber Scrapbook, compiled by Mary Barber Watson Montague, to the Pontiac Archives.

This has information of the descendants of John Barber (1827-1880) and Elizabeth Begley and their eight children.

It is a copy of a scrapbook which was compiled by Mary Jane Wilson Barber who died on November 20, 1930 in her 65th year. Some materials which were saved by her daughter-in-law, Louise Campbell Barber, as well as her children have also been added.

Family identified pictures of Barber and Wilson persons and a photo album are also available for researchers to view.
