Cavert, Mary Beth. “Frede: More Than Friend And Cousin”. The Shining Scroll (2003): 5-8. Print.
Frederica Elmanstine Campbell, called Frede (Fred with an “e”), was Lucy Maud Montgomery’s cousin -- their mothers were sisters in the Macneill family and they had the same great-grandparents on the Montgomery side. Frede was probably named after her Aunt Johanna Fredericka Helmenstine Campbell (wife of Hon. Archibald Campbell, 1828-1901, spellings of her name vary) and grew up in the Park Corner area where the Campbell farm was located, several miles from Montgomery’s home in Cavendish. Park Corner was a place Montgomery treasured for the beauty of its setting and for the members of the three generations of Campbells who lived at the farm, later called Silver Bush, during her lifetime., Source type: Print(0)
