These six pictures are copies of "tin type" pictures from a small album that was brought to Harrington Harbour by Edith Chevalier-Ransom. They are Edith’s "Chevalier relatives" but unfortunately these old pictures were never identified so their subjects are unknown. The # 6 picture is thought to be David Chevalier, Edith’s father who died at Harrington Harbour in 1909. He was 57 years old. That is how Edith came to end up married at Harrington, she came there to visit her dying father, met and married Albert "Bert" Ransom. Album with Jim and Sharon Chubbs-Ransom. Picture 1

Louis David Chevalier (1829-1905) was at least baptized at Esquimaux River or present day St. Paul’s River but we aren’t sure of his birthplace. He was the son of Philip David Chevalier and Nancy Keats. Louis was married twice. His first marriage was to Catherine Kendall and his second marriage to Bridget Sisk. They lived at St. Paul’s River, Quebec. Louis was said to have been a violinist, could read music and played all the "classics". His grandmother Mary Ann Vane of England according to George Whiteley had taught him. He fished and hunted the Seigniory of St. Paul’s River that had been in his family from the late 1700s.
