Meilleurs Bay, Tran-Canada Hwy, Laurentian Hills, ON

 

This is part of my ancestral home along the Ottawa River on The Tran-Canada Highway, 200 kl, n/w of Ottawa... the original farm ran between the Highway 11 in a 2 kl crescent around Meilleurs Road...
 
The Meilleurs are a very old pioneer family... my grandfather, Ephriam Isaac Meilleur worked for the Canadian Pacific Railroad and moved to Sudbury in 1908... he worked through the ranks and in 1943 became general yardmaster...
 
He was married to Christina Pearl Hudson April 5, 1907, and had four daughters, five sons, all of Sudbury and 18 grand-children.

It is interesting to be able to point to a place of ancestry. Grandpa set a good example with 9 children.
