From email from Murray Barkhouse Thursday March 24, 2016: I was fascinated to see your three photographs of Louisa Killam Richardson who was my grandfather's sister. My grandfather was a medical doctor in Woodville Nova Scotia. I had never seen these photographs before. Louisa was born in Woodville Nova Scotia and then married and lived in Greenville New Hapmpshire. Her husband injured his hand working in a furniture factory there and she earned much needed income from sewing. They returned to Kentville Nova Scotia and are listed in the census of 1922.
