Anson McNish was born in Lyn, Ontario, the son of George McNish owner of the Lyn Agricultural Works and Almira Jane Fell.
Anson was a mechanic by trade, but also an Amateur Photographer. As an amateur photographer, Anson has given us some very fine detailed pictures with glimpses into his life and surroundings.
Anson married Antoinette (Nettie) Brookman, in Fultonville, NY on August 10, 1910. Together they had one daughter Florence Catherine who was born on Dec 3, 1913 in Weston, Ontario and unfortunately died at the early age of 15 on April 16, 1928 in Fultonville, NY
These photos are of his daughter Florence, who from the photographs taken was loved by both Anson and Nettie. It must have been a great loss for both of them when she died in 1928 at the young age of 15.
Florence McNish is buried along with her mother in the Fultonville, NY cemetery.
Here are some of the photos that Anson took of his daughter, Florence.
