Saunders Pictures

Main Picture Page

Do you know who these people are ?

These pictures were the property of Doris PORTEOUS nee SAUNDERS who in turn received them from her mother, Catherine SAUNDERS nee FERGUSON married to Robert SAUNDERS. There are a lot of EDWARDS, LEWIS and BENNETT relatives associated with the SAUNDERS family, many of whom emigrated up to Renfrew in the 1850s due to the scarcity of land in Beckwith & Montague Townships, Lanark County. If you have any information about these pictures or would like some more information, contact Jason Porteous.
