Here are some clarifications about Sidna Nourse and family:
Sidna McDonald met Clifford when they both attended Ontario Agricultural College. Upon graduation they were involved with an experimental farm In Saskatchewan. Following an accident (I do not know the details) in which her husband was killed, Sidna returned to the old family home(4 Johnson st, Picton) with her two young sons from the marriage: Gordon and Alan. The boys attended Lakefield College while Sidna studied photography in New York for a year. When she returned to Picton she set up a studio in town. She did not remarry but lived with her maiden sister, Naomi McDonald (a dietician at the county hospital) in the old family home
It truly was a coincidence that the neighbours at 2 Johnson were the Nourses (pronounced "nurse" as opposed to Clifford's "Norse". As a child I was told many times that there was absolutely no relationship other than neighbours!
Dorothy Maher, (1918-2009) high school teacher and daughter of Picton pharmacist John Maher was Gordon's first wife and I, Nancy, am their only child. Lee was Gordon's second wife and they lived in the apartment at no6 Johnson.
