This note was sent to me by Charles B. Cameron. I find it quite interesting and informative.
I knew her as Aunt Marjorie. She was married to my Uncle Jim, although technically he was my father's first cousin. Her brother was J. P. Bickle, who died in 1951 a very wealthy man. I have read that he was a stockbroker turned miner, and was the first President of Maple Leaf Gardens, built in 1931. I never knew him, but my father took me and my brothers and sister to visit Uncle Jim and Aunt Marjorie at their modest home on Sherbourne St. in Rosedale many times. She had many very expensive pieces of art in their home, left to her by her brother for her use during her life, but destined for an art gallery, though I don't remember which one. One of the most beautiful was a china coach with footmen and horses, a piece my father was afraid we rambunctious children would destroy. Uncle Jim was a Presbyterian minister, as was his brother, Mort Paulin. They jointly conducted my parents' wedding service in Windsor on April 4, 1947.
