In photo one (1919) L. M. Montgomery (my great-grandmother) is on the right with her two young children Edna and Don. In the second (1937), she is in the centre, with her sisters Alley and Jenny. This L. M. Montgomery is not be the one who wrote the popular Canadian novels. She more commonly responded to the name Lillie.

Macdonald, otherwise known as Lucy Maud Montgomery.
