This week we have some updates which were revealed concerning Therese Rice, who attended the residential school in Spanish, Ontario, by a reader, Michael Jacobs in a phone conversation, concerning those present on the picture on last week’s article on The Eastern Door, from last week, September 30, 2016.
last week’s article: https://www.facebook.com/notes/eric…
He exposed through our phone conversation that on the picture of last week’s article, standing on the left side of the picture, the smaller man in size standing next to Therese would be Stanley Rice, potentially her nephew. He mentioned that Stanley had a brother who was a guard at the Kingston Penitentiary. He also mentioned that either Stanley or one of his brothers passed away in an accident, when he was hit by a car. He also exposed their housing location back then, to be close to the previous Rabaska Restaurant and Twin Hills.
And as the article was published on Facebook on Thursday October 13, 2016, Melanie Gratton, the daughter-in-law of Therese Rice sent me the picture of Stanley Rice with this mention “ Stanley Rice died in 1951 at the age of 21. This would have him born about 1930, so he could potentially be a brother of Theresa Rice, as my sister-in-law was told. “

The Queen of Rosary Parish in Ottawa were contacted a few times by The Eastern Door over the last two weeks, and it was possible to talk to the present staff only on Wednesday October 5th, 2016 to inform them about the discovery concerning the Mohawks qualified as “Inmates” in the 1921 census.
