An Ashton Winter Scene

In the early 1990's a friend use to take me up to an abandoned farm homestead in Ashton (near St. Peter's) - he dreamed about buying it and fixing it up.  At the time it was the only farmstead left in the community on the Ashton Road.  I took the photo below during one of those visits.  Not many years later everything was torn down and the site leveled.

  1. I am planning a trip to St. Peters in a few weeks. My Grandfather, John Joseph (Joe) McInnis was born there.

    I just stumbled across this picture when I was doing a search for Ashton. I know that my grandfather's brother Hilary and sister Mary toiled a farm east of St. Peters in Ashton. I am just wondering if you would know if this is where their farm was. Hilary died in 1959 and his sister Mary died in 1961.
