Memories of Main Street

Fowler’s Store:

Tracing the history of the recently restored cabinet that now houses displays in the Millbrook branch of the Cavan Monaghan Library, led us to Reg Fowler.  Reg’s uncle Dave owned Fowler’s Men’s Wear, which he took over from his father George who ran it as Fowler & Pendrie, and before that, Fowler & Kells, at 17 King Street East in Millbrook.
Reg lives in Peterborough and came to our February 2017 Fireside Chat ‘Memories of Main Street’.
Reg shared with us some of his memories:

“Here is my recollection of some of the things my Dad told me about his father and mother as well as how Grandfather’s brother George decided to come to Canada.  My grandfather, James or Jim, came to Canada from Church Hill in County Fermanagh in 1868.  He married Mary Jane Jordan, who came with her family from Drum in County Monaghan, and they had three children; Robert (Bob), Sara and my father William (sometimes called Will but usually Bill).
