I am enjoying this site so much! We have lived in Suffolk PEI since 1977 (renting various homes until we bought land and built our own in 1979) and have been doing research into the area off and on since then.
And back at it now for this reason. We live on the homestead of Noah Harper (son of Roger, one of the original settlers from Suffolk Eng.) We love this piece of land, and the community. When we bought the land the orignial house was still "sort of standing" and I spent a lot of time exploring the old site. Over the years the house fell in. We have saved bits and pieces of it, including several boards. From those boards we have made some beautiful tables for my husband and me, our 3 children and our grandson. It feels very special to have these wonderful pieces of Suffolk history. I believe the wood is hemlock from original growth trees cut on this property. I am trying to confirm this and that question has lead me to finding out all kinds of other information! This site has been the very best! And I thank you for all of your careful research.
