Comments: I have many, many fond memories of Carleton.  My family and I used to spend our summer's in Carleton.  My mom had inherited the old Carleton hunting lodge from her Father George Stingel.  I remember one summer finding an old bike and going over to the school and jumping over all the kids Evel Kneviel style in the area.  It was a blast growing up there.  We would play volleyball and kick the can.  I played baseball on the Carleton team for a couple of summers. Phillip Hurlburt was my catcher and we struck alot of people out those summers.  Hey Phillip do you remember thumbing into Yarmouth to see Rush?  Anyway good times eh?

Comments: This looks like a beautiful area to locate to. My niece and husband are  being transfered there and I was wondering about rentals for them as this is their first opportunity to live together and renting is their choice for the short term with buying property in the near future as their ideal goal. Any suggestions as to where to go to find out what is out there to rent?
Thank You

Comments: I came across this excellent site whiole researching a Lewis M. Johnson who was present at the Independence Day celebrations for the Philippines on July 12, 1898. This appears to be the same Lewis Johnson who ran a Shanghai Hotel immediately before that and played a key role in introducing cinema to China.

His family was apparentl;y close to the Killan family and the last reference I can find about him is in the Annis Lake history, at a wedding celebration in 1908.

I'd certainly like to hear moree about him.

Comments: From 1934 to May 1941 our family lived in the lovely Horton house in Sand Beach, and now I want to relate a few memories of neighbours we had at that time. I've already mentioned the friendly Cosman family next door.  Down from them was Tracy Goodwin and his wife who was a Knowles. They had a lovely family of hard working truckers, mostly of coal in those days, and it was Tracy with his big truck who moved our family belongings to Dartmouth when my father was transferred there by Canada Customs in 1941. My mother and Mrs Goodwin and I decided to walk to make more room in the car for my siblings.As we climbed Silver's Hill to the lone farm house at the top, Mrs Goodwin kept repeating with every breathless step, "Last place on earth, Mrs Doucette, last place on earth!"  In Sand Beach, her youngest son Carl was my brother's best friend.
On the south side of the Horton house was the family of Gordon Colquhoun. His daughter Thelma married Ralph Martinelli who drove a motorcycle and lived in a little bungalow onWyman Road.  I remember Gordon with a back brace he had to wear from his broken back.  Down from him was Ken and Jane Poole. All I recall about Ken Poole was that he was so tall, his trousers barely reached down as far as his ankles, and he was the best in the neighbourhood at playing the game of horse-shoes. His wife, Jane, had a little Kindergarten in her home, and how I longed to go to her classes, but was too shy to mention my longing. The Pooles also grew a lovely patch of cultivated strawberries. Some of us learned, as we reached in under the fence at the edge of the road, that it took only one of those great big strawberries to almost fill a child's hand! I know because I had one, and it was delicious, although I was guilt-ridden as I gulped, and worse, was never able to share the delectable story with anyone, especially my strict and law-abiding mother!

Straight across the road from the Horton house, was Mr MacKenzie's little store. When he was not there it was Kathleen Wyman behind the counter.  Mr MacKenzie was a Boy Scout Master and was often seen in full Scout uniform with the large brimmed felt hat.  Mr macKenzie had a Scottie dog named Angus. He also drove a Beach Wagon, and it was the prettiest station wagon I ever saw. Its sides were panelled with beautiful light grain wood. [The only other similar vehicle I've heard of would be the truck owned by a Mr d'Entremont, and the picture reminds me of Mr MacKenzie's beach wagon. He used that for transporting his supplies. 
When Mr. MacKenzie was having a new house built a little south of his store, the workers blasting rock and all the neighbours were cautioned to beware of flying rock! Some of us younger and more timid ones hardly dared go outside.  I remember the sound of exploding dynamite and one time I saw a piece of rock lift a few yards up into the air and straight down again, but no more. We were glad when that was over. How anyone could plow a garden in that rocky terrain puzzles me to this day. 

Down from Mr MacKenzie were the Rogers ladies, Mae and Winnie, and they sold lovely candies they made themselves.  They had a wide variety of flavors of taffy kisses and some made into longer sticks and canes. They made a reddish cocoanut chewy log called a hunkadory, and then a flat white candy with yellow blob on top called a fried egg, and those were creamy and delicious.  There were others but those mentioned were the favorites in the neighbourhood.  At Christams time our family received one of their pound boxes of "ends" of candy and those were as yummy as the more perfect renderings of the original stock.

The Purney family lived next door and every fall at Halloween they gave us children a box filled with beautiful chestnuts!  Oh,the games we made up with these treasures!  The Sand Beach school teacher boarded with the Purneys or with the Rogers, both beautiful large homes. 

The teachers there in our time were a Miss Clarke who was succeeded by Mr Lawrence Doucette from Quinan, and he had a large family of his own. He travelled by motorcycle and went home to his family on weekends. 
On the north side, going toward town, there was a railroad crossing, and just before that was a little place where lived a Mr Bushell (like Bush-Shell)  He was fond of children and liked to make them little toys from wood and especially popular were his little soldiers made of moulten lead. He would melt the lead and pour it into little soldier moulds and out would come a shiny soldier. He gave those fo children who did erranes for him. He was a kind elderly gentleman.
Not far from his place but across the road, was a Mrs Walsh, for whom my Dad would get her mail from the post office up town and take it to her.  She gave him a Christmas gift in the 1920s, a book she signed "Wallace, from Mrs Walsh," a book by T.C. Haliburton of Nova Scotia, Sam Slick the Clockmaker.  That book is still in the family.

Various peddlars came around, some with apples, others with fish and meat, and yet others with a great variety of goods, such as Watkins or Raleigh products so well known all over the place, but Sand Beach has many more stories of back then when there was no pavement anywhere and where the Beach was a favorite summer attraction and the harbour and Bunker Island and Cape Forchu with the beautiful old light house where many went for a picnic. i remember the nasty experience I had on Bunker island with a group from school, when I was stunned after being bunted by a ram! I learned something new that day! 
Bless y'all, Marie

Comments: Please check your pages for grammatical errors!

Webmaster Comments:  Thank you but you will have to be more specific.   Their are 1000's of pages in this guest book alone with over 5000++ different commentators, which I do not and should not alter.  The villages pages are even more extensive.  It would take many months and cost me a small fortune to fix other peoples errors, and I don't get paid for doing either of the above anyway.  Though I agree that it would be nice to have the site perfect, it is not possible.   Do you have a specific item.
Thank you for your comments.
PS  In a subsequent email Margaret pointed out the error and the page. We had a good chuckle over it's distorted meaning and the error was fixed.    (grain assault  replaced by a gain of salt)   Thanks Margaret. :-)

Comments: Hello again, While I agree with Margaret Jeddry that grammatical and other mistakes can be found on this website --mostly my own, I must say that if I had to do a painstaking job of pouring my old heart out, I guess I might never contribute those little memories.

By the way, I forgot to tell the story of the time Clyde Wyman, our good neighbour, took his little sister and me ('me' is correct in this case) with him in his new little coupe for a Spring drive out to see the new construction of the airport. The drive was most enjoyable till we got stuck in deep mud to the axles!  Clyde soon had a circle of friends around the scene and by some effort "got us out of the stuck" --as we little girls later described the scenario.
It was fun and exciting --for two of us anyway. Fond memories,

Comments: And I mustn't forget to mention a special gentleman, a Mr LeCain, who drove a nice car, a 1930s model, and his car would go by, heading toward town, as I would be on my way down to the Sand Beach School. Mr LeCain never failed to tip his hat to me each and every time!  That's how I learned a little more about refinement and respect for others, making no distinction.  I felt honored by him. One time he gave me a ride part of the way home from school on a very cold February day.  "Did you get any Valentines today" he asked. 
"Yes, I got nine."
"NONE! no Valentines?" he asked in a kind of sorrowful tone.
I thought he was teasing me, so I said, 
"Yes, I got NINE, n-i-n-e!"
And he smiled in a voice of surprise and said, 
"Oh, NINE< well that's a LOT of Valentines."
He let me out at the end of our lane and I went into the house with a happy story to tell my mother about getting a rid in a car, and she knew him and told me his name was Mr LeCain.  marie

I made one of the first entries in the Yarmouth Guestbook somewhere back around 1994 I believe, and have made several entries since. I did scare up a few of my old friends, you never know who might pop up. Would really love to hear from anyone, gives me a big kick to hear from someone I haven't seen or heard from in almost 45 years.
Take care everyone,

Comments: One of my "bucket list" dreams is to be able to tour the east coast and in particular spend some time in Yarmouth, N.S.  A good friend of mine is a former resident and he has told me quite a lot about his home town.  The pictures are stunning and I know that this would be an incredible adventure!

Comments: I am searching for details of a vessel called Livingstone which was constructed in Tusket and registered in Yarmouth in 1871 (official number 61828).  I have looked up the Ship Information Database and it says this ship was Stranded on English Bank, River Platte, Prince Edward Island and was a total loss, they did have a ? with this info.   I then checked Prince Edward Island shipwrecks but could not find any reference to this.   I believe my Great Grandfather may have been a crew member on this ship, his name was Robert Sutherland (born 1844 Ayr Scotland), he had previously served on the Maggie L.Carvill and the Hospodar, we never knew what happened to him,it is a mystery that my family would dearly love to solve, we would just like to have closure on this.   If you know what happened to this vessel or can help in any way, I would be extremely grateful.  Yours sincerely, Nancy Hil
