Narrative

Daughter of David Dyment and Edith Murray.

Excerpt from her book, I Have a Woodpile.

"I was born in Springhill, P.E.I, on the birthday of my eldest sister, April 16th, 1896. A family of six girls and three boys, my parents were Lydia Edith and David Dyment. Our home life was a happy one, our toys were home-made and had to be put away on Saturday nights in respect of the Sabbath. I was always of a nervous temperment and could be easily teased. I loved animals and had many pets ??? I liked reading especially poetry and the poet I liked best was Lord Byron, I started writing verses when I was quite young. The first that was printed in the Guardian was called "I have a Woodpile". I can't write often, perhaps several months will go by. I live alone on a farm in Baltic, Lot 16, my husband and son are deceased but I am fortunate in having a grand-daughter. She is coming home to spend Easter with me."

 

From The History of Baltic
The house where Mrs. Wall presently lives is approximately 40 years old (at least). All the buildings on the property (except for one) were built by her husband . Mr. Wall was an excellent carpenter during his life and even built the house which his family grew up in at Baltic. He died in 1950.

Edith was a nurse in Summerside in the 1921 census.
