Sardine Point: Residential Illustrations





I'm not sure who drew this illustration depicting the Sardine Point settlement, but it was among the copies of family history I received from Mark DeVillier several years ago.  It is of my opinion that the drawings were penciled by Sue Fryoux Blanchard, who also wrote about the history of the area.  

These illustrations give me a "visual record" of the residential and business organization of the settlement.  By viewing these documents, I acquire a sense of knowledge about where the residents lived and who their next door neighbors were.  

Many of the residents in Sardine Point were related to our Bourgoyne family.  I am slowly establishing the connections between the various families on the Point, but there is still much more information to gather!
