Mary Ansell, her family, her life
« on: July 17, 2019, 08:46:32 AM »
I have so enjoyed reading all about JMBarrie and everything associated with it on this Forum and Website. I do hope everyone will enjoy my latest Blog all about a collection of old photos I found and the family they belonged to. Mary Ansells family. I am a collector of old photos and have loved this research project.
My Blog is about a 30-40 read, hope members will enjoy.

This is great, Lynn! That collection of old photos was quite a find. Thanks for sharing your research.

I have photos of Mary's grave and house in Biarritz, if you're interested. Her villa is still there and lived in by the the descendants of Mary's housekeeper/companion, who inherited her estate. 

The name "Mary Cannan"on the tombstone is hardly decipherable because the family who inherited her estate  took over the plot for their own dead members, and have now probably forgotten who Mary Cannan was.
