1944- This picture of the Broughton grandparents was taken in front of the garage in Edna’s garden
on the place we (Jimmy and Edna) lived in Newton. The chimney of the old woolen mill which was just behind the garage" is just visible." Jimmy worked in those for a while. The (photo of) the grand-
parents was taken one summer day when they came with the horse to scuffle the tomatoes. " William
and Martha lived on the farm across from the railroad station in Milverton until they retired from the
farm and then moved to a house in Newton. Tillie and Velma also lived with them and moved to the
house as well. In Newton they worked at the egg-grading station. Velma worked there until she retired. Velma eventually fell heir to their house and still lives there now...
1939 Photo of Grandaa and Grannie Broughton [I didn't get that photo from Willi]
(referring to Velma "She has lived on the property since she was born, except for a little while after she was married when she lived in a couple rooms over the hotel. She returned to her home after Granny died. Velma’s husband Ed died there too. Granny Broughton was just a little wisp of a thing and Granddad was quite tall. Granny lost an eye and has a glass eye in this picture. One day, while upholstering a chair, she decided to remove a tack which didn’t go in straight enough. Granny attempted to pull it our with a fork, but the tack flew back into her eye. Granny lived right near the train station in Milverton, so she decided to board the next train to get help from the doctor. While she was riding on the train, Granny’s eye popped right out in her hand.!"

Granddad Broughton was also a source of local legend. As can be seen from the photo, he lost his thumb at a young age. His thumb was dutifully ‘buried between four trees in a little matchbox on the former family farm near Moncton. The trees still stand to mark the place" on the farm" on County Road 23 where the Holman’s live now". As to how the thumb was removed and found its place under the trees of the Holman farm, there are various stories depending on the teller. Since no-one lives to verify the tales, no one now is really sure if Granddad Broughton was just a disobedient young lad climbing a windmill and catching his thumb in the gears or a young man working on the family farm who lost his thumb in a threshing machine accident. Edna tells the former story but cronies of William and the obituary tells the latter. I suspect that Edna’s story is the right one but that he let others think what they wanted about it in his older, wiser days
-
From another interview with Edna..
There is an interesting story about each of them losing a part of themselves. Several versions of Grandpa’s story exist, but the one Edna talked about was that Grandpa Broughton was missing part of his thumb because of an accident he had when a child. Some people say there are no such thing as accidents and this one most certainly might have been avoided if young William had minded his parents. One day, when they were expecting company and William’s parents were busy in preparations, William decided to climb up the windmill that provided power to the farm. He had been warned away from doing this before, but boys being boys, he took advantage of his parents’ preoccupation to climb the windmill. In those days, before health and safety, the old fan windmills had open gears and sure enough, William got his thumb caught in those gears and tore off his thumb. This certainly would have been a painful event but in those days, the thought of angering a parent and the corporal punishment that might follow was also a powerful deterrent to admitting a mistake. Young William made his way down the windmill, thrust his thumb and his injured hand in his pocket and attempted to maintain a poker face as he went back to his family and their company. The game was up when his family noticed the blood soaking through his pants pocket and insisted on having him show them the damage. The thumb, in those days, was not able to be reattached; the wound was dressed and the notorious thumb was given a decent burial in a matchbox underneath the huge trees in the Broughton front yard.
-
Granny Broughton was also missing an eye though she wore a glass replacement for the benefit of the grandchildren. This injury occurred when Martha was grown up and married. She and her husband lived on a farm at the eastern edge of Milverton, right across from the railway station. Regular train travel ran through Milverton and past the farm. One day, while re-upholstering a chair, she decided to pull out a tack using a dinner fork, for want of any other suitable tools at hand. While doing so, the tack flew into her eye, causing her much distress. Needing to see a doctor, she boarded the train and headed out. Unfortunately, while still on the train, so the story goes, the eye fell out of its socket, and into her hand. From that time on, Granny Broughton sported an unmoving glass eye.

Suddenly had to go.

When morning comes we cannot tell
How God has planned our day
Death like a sudden whirlpool came
And swept your life away.

But faith was meant for times like these
And if we take God's hand
With loving wisdom he will help
Our hearts to understand.

Those who loved him in life sincerely
Still love him in death just the same.

Lovingly remembered by Mom, Dad, Brothers and Sisters.

Hello Bill
I just went through your family tree on the chance you were related to a very good friend of mine who passed away some years ago, Alex Buchanan from the village of Donegal. I see you are related. (on page 4-8) I have been at Alex's place (mechanic garage and large apartment over ) a number of times and we have shared many good times together. I know his wife and three girls. And I knew Alex's brothers, sisters and nieces and nephews and families. I miss Alex to this day and feel there is a big space in that part of the country since he passed away.
Small world as they say.
