The property was first owned by a Miss Langstaff around the turn of the century, followed by a Miss O'Connell from New York who had the legal work done by my maternal grandfather. The family has been coming to Oxtongue since 1926 at Miss O'Connell's invitation, and in 1936 she deeded the property to my mother and her two sisters. When my mother Dorothy Baldwin died in 1960, her two sisters, Gwen and Sophie Boyd, deeded the property to her six children.
