564A Commercial Street

Happy Home

Behind Susan and Jig Cook’s house was a cottage called Happy Home in which Agnes (Boulton) O’Neill gave birth to Shane O’Neill amid great forebodings about her marriage to Eugene O’Neill. She was attended by Dr. Daniel Hiebert. The episode is described at some length in Boulton’s memoir, Part of a Long Story. If the building still exists, it appears to be on the north side of a subdivided plot and now carries the street number 269A Bradford.
