Harriet was 22 years old when this work was done and died shortly thereafter. She was married to Robert Smith and the daughter of John Smith and Mercy Barnhart.
The Smith Farm was eventually occupied by Cornwall’s Ottawa and New York Railway station. The suburb of Smithville was named after this family.
This portrait is one of the highlights of the CONFEDERATION PARLOUR to be unveiled on Saturday April 8th at 2 pm, as part of our activities marking Canada’s 150th anniversary.
The portrait was donated by Lottie Robertson, of Maple Grove (Mille Roches) in 1956.
On April 8th, we will repeat this tradition with a flag raising at 1:30.
Everyone is welcome.
