Their shanty was well made with a roof of cedar scoops, arranged in such a fashion that it never leaked a drop.Married at Emmanuel Church, a log structure that still existed at least until 1977.Moved to Burgess Mine shortly after getting married.Had 4 boys.Just after the Great Depression, their house burned down. Lived on the fringe of Combermere in 1977 with her son Stanley.

Boyle Bulletin #8 - she had something wrong with her throat and she was told by the doctor to smoke a pipe to soothe it.

She was about 5’8” tall, and stout built. She wore glasses and had a dark complexion. Quite strict in disciplining her sons.

Her name was spelled “Teanie” in the 1901 census.

In the 1911 census, they lived next door to her sister Eliza’s family, and her mother and sister Edna also lived with them.
