Edith ( Beecroft) Turner graduated from the Chatham General Hospital School of Nursing in the early to mid 1930's. She worked in Detroit Michigan in the maternity ward until she had to give up her career to go home to nurse her dying father. She was from Iona Station, Southwold Township, Elgin County. In her estate was found four ,photos in photographer's mounts, of women who were her friends at the nursing school. However there are no names on the photos, just the name of the photographer ( Westlake, Chatham). I am attaching these photos to this message and hope you can identify them for me. I would love to return them to the families, or a group that would take care of them.

Dear Maureen

May I have your permission to copy your post and photos and put them on the Kent Co. GenWeb site? Perhaps a descendant will find them there!

If you have not heard from anyone about the photos, I may be able to help.

I have a friend who has been involved with the Public General Hospital Alumni for a long time -- she is out of the country right now, but I could contact her when she gets back.

Thanks to everyone for the ideas and help. I contacted the Kent County branch of the OGS, then sent them the originals. I believe they have identified all but one of the women in the photos. I hope that they are able to reunite them with the families.
By the way, the date I had of graduation was incorrect, have since learned it was the early 1940's.

Hi Maureen,
The woman on the far right is my mother, Louise Jackman. I know that photo well! If you e-mail me, I will send you my address, as I would be happy to give the photo a loving home.

Many thanks.

So glad to know the name of at least one of these beautiful young women. I have sent the original to the Kent County Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society. Please contact them and I am sure that they will be glad to re-unite you with the photo. Their email is on the OGS website under Branches. Thanks for contacting me.
