Note: [The May-Lethbridge Family.FTW]
Ann had made a petit point smapler. In the center were birghtly coloured birds, flowers, trees, and two deer, enclosed by a border of green leaves. At the top of the sampler was a basket of flowers and below it was stiched the name, Ann Trestain and the date of 1841, encircled by a wreath of ivy. Ann stiched this sampler when she was 9 years old and completed it before her 10th birthday. The last of this sampler was hanging on the wall of the living room of Mary Ann May.
The only obituary I could find for Ann Trestain Lethbridge was in the Strathroy Age August 27, 1908. It stated that Ann was the eldest daughter of the late George Trestain. She came to Canada with her parents in 1843 but when I found 1901 census showed it was 1840, also her brother who lived in Ekfrid Township. The Trestain family first settled in Ontario County, near the town of Whitby, afterwards moving west, locating in the township of Southwold, Elgin county, on the lake about two miles west of Port Stanley. From there they moved to Ekfrid, in 1848, residing on the farm now owned by Jas. Trestain. She was united in marriage in 1850 and with her husband who predeceased her 26 years ago settled upon the farm now owned by her son James, where she resided until the time of her death.
