The Kent Historical Society published an article about pioneer life in that county (Kent County, Ontario, Canada). Could anything be learned about my Cameron ancestors (specifically Ewen and Bridget (Higgins) Cameron and their children)? They lived in Kent County at least be 1851.
The author's grandfather, Hugh Holmes, settled in Harwich in 1796, so he was there much earlier than were my Camerons.
According to the author, "nothing retarded the progress of this county more than the lack of any system of drainage, and even as late as 1860 the crops were generally inferior on this account."
There were no references to any Cameron family members in this issue.
