The original Quirk home was a log cabin, originally built by the Wilcox family on land originally owned by them. The addition on the side of the cabin was a summer kitchen.
The youngest first generation Quirk ever to be born was Lila Quirk. This photograph shows Lila Quirk, on the right, standing next to her sister Edna, sometime in the late 1920’s, or possibly the very early 1930’s at the Quirk homestead.
According to a census taken in 1911, James Quirk, age 29, was listed as the head of his household in what was the new Quirk Homestead in Monteagle, Hastings East, married to Eliza, then aged 25, with children Gordon Quirk, age 2, and Harry Quirk, age 1.
According to government records, Elizabeth Ann Quirk married George Wilcox on April 4, 1899; nine years after leaving the orphanage and immigrating to Canada. The marriage registration number is 50496. Annie would have been around 19 years old.
