JTC:Janet, with her rich contralto voice . . .

Janet was the fourth of eleven children of Alexander Thom Cringan (1860-1931) and Lillias Rennie Waugh (1861-1929). She was born in Toronto on Feb. 27, 1889.

From John Russell's memoirs:

"Now to Canada. Our headquarters in Toronto were 44 Willcocks Street. We were often down at Uncle Harold's office in Temple Building, at that time the tallest building in the British Empire, and our teeth were the recipients of Canadian dentistry at its best. We spent a few days with Father's Uncle Alex and Aunt Lily Cringan in Broadview. On Sunday, after lunch, as many as possible of the family would foregather. Janet with her rich contralto voice would sing accompanied by John's wife, Evelyn, who had been Uncle Alex's accompanist at the Conservatory."
