I would like to connect with the Hodge and Wyllie family as I am sure
that they have the family bibles etc. Some time ago I sent the Hodge's
of Bogwood a package of information, sure would appreciate connecting.
I believe the unknown girl in the Drummond photo is the Isobel who married
a Hodge and it is their family who runs or owns Bogwood now. Sure would
like any history or story on Bogwood for the future generations. The St.
John's have visited and I have their pictures of the farm. Would their
be any real photos.. Also would appreciate a family photo for publication.
I would be interested in finding out about your family and to see if I
have the correct information. As you noticed , I did not go into the Baird's
but that can be another project. My neighbour some miles away is Bonnie
Suchan who has help in this research. Her g g grandfather was employed
with the Wallace and Drummond Family and when he got married and immigrated
to Saskatchewan they were sent a cow for a wedding present. What a small
world we now live in. The other person I would like to contact would be
the Wallace of Auchenbrain farm. I have photos of their family but no
names dates ext. Also a photo of the farm would be appreciate. In the
Legacy story. I have tried to spell the farm names right, but I am sure
I have mistakes.

(Wales) Hyslop Drummond (b 1848 d. ?) whose husband was John Drummond
(b.1846 d.1894) She is the only one without a flower but is holding a
small prayer book? So the photo could have been taken in 1894 as the clan
gathered for the John's death. Jessie Drummond Wyllie (b.1852 d?) Grampa
Robert Drummond ( b.1825 d.1899) Grama Margaret Lambie Drummond ( b.1814
d.1907) Elizabeth Drummond Wallace (b.1848 d.1939) Margaret (Maggie) Hodge
Gray ( b1845. d. 1923) Boy in front is unidentifed but could be the son
of Bella and John Drummond?
