Ancestry 101 / Lee / Hannah Mary

Hannah Mary McKay was born  in 1879 in Pictou, Nova Scotia (parents Roderick and Janet nee Smith).  First daughter (after 3 sons). She had two younger sisters (1883 and 1889), and two younger brothers. As the oldest daughter, I believe she is in following photo (at the bottom):

The women on the left is her Mom, Janet.  The others are a mystery.  The one on the right is likely Janet’s sister as shown in this:

I don’t know who the one behind is, possibly a daughter-in-law of an older son.

Hannah ‘s family moved from Pictou in 1881/82 and spent at least 15 years in Manitoba, before arriving in the Vancouver area, sometime after 1906. In 1911, she married Charles Lee.

This photo is from 1917, with her children (Lorraine,Doug and youngest Bert in front, and Rod on right).  Isabel the youngest daughter was still to come.
