*Fun Fact Friday*
Women in the Woods - Greta Innis (102 years old)
.
.
"When discussing the history of the forest industry in New Brunswick, it is important to acknowledge the fact that women have historically been well integrated in these operations. The structure of the New Brunswick forest industries consisted of small, family-based "jobber" camps, which facilitated the presence of women even prior to the twentieth century. In the small communities of this province, the wives and daughters of loggers were often relied upon to cook in the lumber camps in order to maximize the gains of the family operation."
.
.
"Greta Innis was born in 1918 in Sevogle, Northumberland County, New Brunswick and worked in the woods from 1927 to 1946. Greta was the second oldest of 18 children. She and her sister Marie began working in the woods for their father, who was a contractor for Fraser Company Limited and at times for Burchill and Co. Greta began working as a cookee for her sister at age nine; her sister was ten. Greta later worked as a cook in the woods, cooking for as many as 44 men."
.
.
On August 1, 2020, Greta stopped by the Central New Brunswick Woodmen's Museum with her family to relive memories of the Lumber Camps. Listen as Greta reflects on her past in the lumber camps and tells us stories of bobcats, ghosts, and travelling into Dungarvon.
