The photos are shared by Pat Widdifield of Comox, BC whose father was Archie Curtis Livingston.
Jane Watters Smith, (page 958, 964) is seated at the centre. To the right are her daughter-in-law Susanna Boyce Smith and her son Robert; (page 845). Jane gifted him the property in 1877. To the left is Roberts adopted son, George Kinsey Smith (page 468). The photo was after 1896 and perhaps celebrates his joining the family. The man holding reins to the horse and buggy is not identified. The photograph is from the collection of the late Doris Banfill with thanks to Sue Sarrasin of Waterville, Quebec.
Robert Smith named the farm Rockville; which is appropriate. This was taken around 1920, when George Kinsey Smith lived there with his mother and is from my own collection. The address is now Scenic Drive; the house, although standing, is no longer recognizable. The author and his brother visited the site in October 2013.
