Excerpt from Records of the Lives of Ellen Free Pickton and Featherstone Lake Osler She had a brother named Thomas, who was older, and was a weekly boarder at school when Mrs. Osler was at home, so she saw very little of him. Another brother, named Edmund, died young. Thomas was for some years in Jamaica, and afterwards went to Acton, Ohio, where his children and their descendants are still living. Mrs. Osler remembered him singing a popular song when he was a lad in his early teens, Tell her I lived upon cabbage and bacon, For beef and mutton they were too dear.' The two little girls would join in, and the elders would cry, Stop that song, children.' He was a very kind brother to his little sisters. There was a great old yew-tree in a shady walk in the garden, which spread its broad branches out far and at like a cedar of Lebanon. Thomas used to give his sisters, Emma and Ellen, a boust and they would all three climb up high in the tree, lie on their backs, each on a large at rocking branch, and sing their songs.
