“I learned today of other teachers who taught between 1890 and 1912. Miss Martha Cameron taught for seven years and walked three miles to school and home for all seven years at a small salary; real pioneering, surely. Miss Martha Cameron (now deceased) married Mr. Ramsay and went to Edmonton and we visited her when we were out there four years ago.
Miss Jessie McKay was another teacher I knew in later years. Mrs. Calder of S.S.#1 Mara (Montreal School Section), now 91 years of age, boasts of going to school to Miss McKay.
Mr. Alex. Birchard, who passed on some years ago, was another teacher whom I knew very well.

Supplementary List, supplied by Mr. Harper Newman, with the assistance of Mrs. Peter Gilchrist, sister of Miss Martha Cameron (Mrs. Ramsay) and of Mrs. Calder.
