  • Collection
  • 1892-1918
  1. Photo of Lucinda Hill wiith her children (from left): Susan, Elizabeth and James, and her grand-daughter, Elsie (Elizabeth's daughter). Lucinda was born on the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory in around 1843, the daughter of Isaac and Catherine Hill and she married another Isaac Hill. By the time of the 1871 census she was a widow, living with her three children (Elizabeth, 10, James, 8 and Susan 5) in the household of her nephew, William Claus. Elsie was 15 at the time of the 1901 census, when she was living in Deseronto, Ontario with her mother and grandmother. In the photograph, she looks about five or six years old, which would date the portrait to around 1892. The photo was taken by Herbert A. Osborne, who was active in Deseronto in the mid-1890s. The image has damaged edges and is broken into two pieces.
