Estabrooks family

  • CA PANB MC259
  • Fonds
  • 1845, 1889-1906

This fonds consists primarily of diaries of Alvaretta Estabrooks and Hannah Estabrooks. Alvaretta Estabrooks's diaries cover the years, 1889 to 1893. She mentions friends and neighbours, in Coldstream, and records deaths in the area. As well, she notes her activities -- housekeeping, raising crops, sewing, quilting, hooking mats, crocheting and knitting. Alvaretta devoted daily attention to her music but set aside Sunday for Sunday school and prayer meetings.

Hannah Estabrooks's diary covers the periods, January 1903 to June 1903 and January 1905 to April 1906. She records information about her family and friends, as well as about working in the local store and in the home -- churning butter, knitting, candling eggs, tending the lambs, working in the barn.

The fonds also contains information on the Estabrooks family history, as well as a letter from Richard Burpee to his father, Thomas Burpee, of Saint John, dated 26 March 1845. Richard Burpee was reportedly the first Baptist minister from New Brunswick to go as a missionary to India. His sister, Adeline Burpee, married Jacob Estabrooks, of Carleton County, which may explain the presence of this letter in this fonds. The letter deals with the prospect of Richard Burpee's trip to India.

Oakley and Sophia Orser family fonds

  • CA PANB MC2893
  • Fonds
  • 1916-1926

This fonds consists primarily of correspondence received by Oakley and Sophia Orser and members of their family, including their daughter, Augusta Orser Burrill; Oakley's father, John W. Orser, and sister, Georgia Orser, from family members serving overseas during the First World War. Taken collectively, these letters underscore the fact that many young men from Carleton County, a number from, and related to, the Orser family, enlisted for wartime service, and suggest the impact this had on their families and community.

The bulk of the correspondence is from John A. Orser, Oakley and Sophia Orser's son, but there are also letters from Augusta Orser Burrill's husband, William E. Burrill; cousin Samuel Gilbert Barter; and two of John A. Orser's wartime friends, Fred B. Wallace and Bert [?]. These letters offer news of wartime activities in England and France and, particularly, information about soldiers from Carleton County who were at the Front. They also highlight family and community ties and provide insights into feelings of loneliness, dangers, and difficulties soldiers faced during wartime.

There are also a few letters between family members at home during wartime; correspondence relating to Sophia Orser's attempts to have her son's estate distributed after his death and pertaining to Oakley Orser's claim to a pension on account of his son's wartime service; a poem by John A. Orser about working on farms in the state of Maine; a scroll commemorating the wartime sacrifice of Pte. William E. Burrill; and two photographs, one of Orser family siblings taken on the farm,and the second, a studio portrait of John A. Orser and his friend, Harold Olney, in uniform.
