      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."

    S.C. Spring Column And Cornice 8-day Weight Clock
    This heirloom made cir. 1864 belonging to Peter Stone Howell, has penciled service notations inside such as "3.10.1892 - Cleaned, Mrs. Spencer Stone" (Flora Maude Campbell Stone 1872-1969). Another notation refers to just "Mrs. Spencer" - likely referring to Betsy Cherry (1908-1893) who married William Spencer (1804-1846). Betsy Cherry Spencer outlived her daughter Adelaide Spencer and raised her grandson, Spencer Stone from age 2.

    Clock information: Regulator Strike, Extra Eight Day, Rolling Pinton, Brass Clocks, Manufactured by
    S.C. Spring, Bristol Conn "Warranted if well used."

    Solomon C. Spring was born on January 29th, 1826 in Granby, Connecticut. Early in his life, he was employed in the clock shop of Silas Burnham Terry. Spring then moved to Bristol, Connecticut where he worked as a clockmaker for the Rev. Irenus Atkins owner of the Atkins Clock Company. In 1864, at the age of 38, he bought the land and buildings of the old Birge, Peck and Company (clock makers) in Bristol and renamed it the S.C. SPRING CLOCK COMPANY. The company never issued a catalogue so its hard to know how many styles they made. Most of their clocks were sold to other clock manufacturers, so to find one with the S.C. Spring label in the case is a wonderful "find" indeed !!! Spring retired in 1895 and died in 1906 after producing some excellent and very attractive clocks.

      From Ted Lollis in a 4 Dec 2002 email to JSHJr.

      Thanks to your website, I have enjoyed learning for the first time about the family of your (ed: great) grandmother Flora Maude CAMPBELL Stone [1872-1969]. She was only three years younger than my grandfather George Alexander CAMPBELL [1869-1943] -- her 1st cousin once removed -- but she outlived him 26 years. Her name and address were found in my grandfather's papers after his death, so apparently they were in some kind of contact. I have the original of a 1899 letter from her father in which he he wrote "Maude...has two little boys who are great pets when they come down [to Toronto]."

      From Robert Charlton in a 23 Nov 2016 email to JSHJr.

      "I'm reminiscing and thought about auntie Maude. Maude was Starr Stevens, my grandfather's, first cousin. She came out to high banks every summer while I was growing up.  I'd bicycle from Erie Beach to pop in on her during the summer. She always would welcome me and I remember that she kept board games or zig saw puzzles in the bottom drawer of a bureau she kept in her living room. At age 80, she bought a new car and at age  92 wanted to replace it. Auntie Maude will always be dear to my heart." [7, 8]
