3 Photos of members of the Pendleton family, New Brunswick, Canada

 Three old photographs that were found with photographs of the Pendleton family of Charlotte County, New Brunswick, Canada, which contains a Pendleton's Island.

The first, above, is a fabulous photograph of 5 men taken during the winter.  It must have been a rather mild day as one man has his coat unbuttoned and another isn't wearing a coat.  One man has his shovel at the ready.  There's something in front of the man at right, but I can't quite make it out.  They're standing on either a light snow cover or packed snow.

The next photograph shows a middle-aged man in his Sunday go-to-meeting attire.

The third shows a middle aged man posed among some fancy props.  What sets this photograph apart is that, on reverse, not shown, is a photographer's stamp:  "Frazier, Eastport, Maine"

Whether any or all of these men are Pendletons or not, I don't know.  But if they are, they may be related to the original Pendletons who moved from the Rhode Island/Connecticut area in the 1700s to Islesboro, Maine.  Some then moved on to Charlotte County, New Brunswick. 

If you have a theory as to the identity of any of these men, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

  2. I love these pictures. For sale?
    My great,great grandmother is Bessie Washington (Pendleton)Lord, b.1900 in Eastport married Percy Lord of Letang. Sure these are relatives, just havent figured out how yet! They are great, thank you for sharing.

    1. Contact info is in the right margin near the top under Inquiries. Glad you happened by! I think we might be distant cousins via the Pendleton line!

    2. Thank you Pam! I'll have to access this on my laptop because I'm not seeing it on my phone. We may very well be distant cousins, I'm still researching things to one day do a genealogical line of my Pendleton/Lord, Greenlaw/Leslie roots!

    3. Neat! Good luck to you, possible cousin... Some familiar surnames there.

  3. Fascinating. I have a Sarah Susan Pendleton down my line via a Hooper, McGee connection from New Brunswick. I'm happy to have stumbled across these photos. I sure wish I knew who they were!

  4. Hello, I am from Sarah Pendleton/Samuel Hooper line. Sarah's parents Thomas Pendleton and Mary Stuart. Thomas's Father Thomas Pendleton / Sarah Tewksbury. The pictures are lovely. Not sure who they are. I do have a question... several Pendleton's are listed as dying on Pendleton Island. Does anyone know if there is a cemetery there? The Government has preserved Island. Thank you
