Mary Kimmerly

When I was working through my family tree, I started getting confused with the vast number of Marys. Not just Marys, but Mary Colls. In fact there are seven Mary Colls buried in the Morpeth Cemetery, the tiny tiny village of Morpeth, Ontario.

One Mary was my great grandmother Mary Duck, born Mary Kimmerly. I believe this is her on the right, and likely her mother on the left.

Mary was a great collector of postcards, even before her marriage in 1909, and I have many postcards from her collection. Here is one that must be pictures of her Kimmerly parents:
