Description:
Mrs. Hopkins talks to Doug Tangney about the early years in the Burnt River area.

Again, there is no introduction and a female voice, presumably Mrs. Hopkins, begins her story. Her father was a lumber buyer for the Carews and her mother kept the farm; it was near Fell’s Station. She mentions the Log Chateau as a resort area in the early days and the fact that someone near Four Mile Lake made violins as her son bought one and taught himself to play it. Unfortunately, her maiden name is not given directly but a search through the genealogy material at Lindsay Library finds a Martha (Carew) Hopkins b.1886, d.1980 and this person would fit the timeline of the story.
