Can anyone add, correct, identify what I've gathered so far on this picture ??
Son of Edward and Mary Hodge, in the 1891 census, George is age 12
In 1891 census, he is listed with his grand parents Allen McKendrick (1817-1896)and Elizabeth Collins (1821-1900) of P.E.I., But he is the son of John MacKendrick (1852-1885) and he is listed as being age 10. (Allen was born in 1879 and died in 1897)

and their record of being buried in Campbellton Rural Cemetery.
