      From "History of Highbanks" by W. Darcy McKeough:

      Re: The Stone Cottage at Highbanks.

      p. 37, quoting Janie Field: "Bess [Elizabeth Louise STONE Howell b. 1905], & Johnny Howell [John Edward Howell b. 1903], used the cottage several summers and after Johnny's death...Bess spent the summers there with Auntie Maude [Flora Maude CAMPBELL Stone].  Arch [Dr. Archibald Campbell Stone b. 1912] and [his wife] Thora [Thora A. DICK Stone] - then Thora owned the cottage after Auntie Maude's death."

      p. 39 quoting Janie Field: "Spencer Stone's aunt was Betsy Anne Stone McKeough [b. 1833 m. William McKeough b. 1824], my great grandmother. Cousin Pen (Spencer) died in 1939.  All during the war the cottage was used by Auntie Maude Stone, Stone children and grandchildren - particularly Bess Stone Howell (Johnny Howell died in 1938 or 1939, and her three children, Spencer [John Spencer Howell b. 1929], Ned [Edward Davison Howell b. 1931], and Peter [Peter Stone Howell, b. 1935] with whom I played every summer. Auntie Maude moved the cottage back about 1960 and angled it slightly."

      p. 38, quoting Margaret Sexsmith: "The Stone family [Spencer Stone m. Flora M CAMPBELL], Douglas [John Douglas Stone b. 1893] , Bob [Dr. Robert Spencer Stone, b. 1895], Tom [Thomas Archibald Stone b.1900], Bess and Arch were not all at the cottage in 1917.  Tom was, sometimes Bess and Arch were." 

      p. 38 quoting W.D.McKeough: "The back door of Auntie Maud's cottage, if it was still where it was, would be over the bank.  Dad claimed when it was moved, that it was for the second time. Dad had a famous story about Auntie Mag Stone (cousin Pen's sister) [Margaret STONE b. 1861], talking about "the road in front of the cottage" - I think it was right too. 

      Re: Victoria Ave, Chatham home

      p. 38 Margaret Sexsmith comments[now back to Chatham, Ontario]: "The Stones had moved from a home on Grand Avenue just west of Hilliard Street to the very large stucco Sutherland home on Victoria Avenue.  All that marks the location now is the original wrought iron fence."
