Years ago I was instrumental in the building of your school at the edge of town. Our part in this operation was to supply and erect all of the structural steel involved in the completion of the project. Your beautiful town with the old mill and water fall has been burnt into my memory as the most picturesque place I have been to in many many years. Currently I reside in south western Ontario and some day I would like to return to Ayton and renew my old memories. Respectifully Yours Don...

Looking for info for ancestry of the O'Farrell family. My grandmother, Margaret O'Farrell left Ayton about 1920. Thank you
