Up to Rawdon, Part Two

ByDaniel B. Parkinson

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This book in two parts stems from the author’s lengthy research into the early history of Rawdon Township, Lower Canada and includes the majority of immigrants arriving before 1852. Part Two details the origin and destinations of 40 families, additional to Part One. The balance of the 42 chapters highlight 70 families who moved to central and western Ontario; the influence of American settlers; the first church and school; the military origin of some settlers and community militia service and the relationship of Catholic and Protestant immigrants. Although most of the families investigated are Protestant, the books include chapters on the early Irish-Catholic community. Since it was published in February 2013, many pages of new and revised material have been added at www.uptorawdon.com on "Author's & Readers' Updates" and other pages; they are free and are useful companions to the book. Currently the website is updated every 6 weeks. ** The two parts of UP TO RAWDON must be ordered separately. **
