As the daughter of a Scot who lived in Rural Route 1, and RR2 Anten Mills, back in the 1950's (and likely well beyond this) I wondered if you could advise me as to where I might find any information about him. His name was Bradford (Brad) Watson and I believe in 1956 he was already married to Jean (Watson). In 1956 he would have been 46 years old. It's a long time ago, I know. But I keep thinking, perhaps the archives of a local newspaper etc might hold obituary details etc. I realise this is not the purpose of your website, and I apologise, but just in case you can think of anywhere I could try... Sorry for any inconvenience caused,

We have recently purchased a house on Horseshoe Valley Rd. W. that we have been told was built in 1860 and was the first post office in Anten Mills. Could you tell me where I can find a picture of the post office. Any help you could give us would be greatly appreciated. Catherine & Jerome Moreau
