Carol Bennett McCuaig -- Research for Two New Books
(1) Beckwith Township Settlers Prior to 1842
(2) Lanark County Settlers from Carlow, Wexford and Kilkenny
September 1, 2006:
Carol Bennett McCuaig is currently working on two projects and would be delighted
to hear from anyone who has information to share. In return, if she is able to
contribute anything to their "wish lists" she will be glad to do so.
The first project deals with families who were in Beckwith Township prior
to 1842, and the other has to do with the early settlers who came to Lanark
County from Carlow, Wexford and Kilkenny. The books will be similar in style to
some of her earlier works, such as The Lanark Society Settlers and
Peter Robinson's Settlers, and the Founding Families series for several Renfrew
County townships. No photos will be included.
Carol lived in Beckwith Township for many years before moving to Renfrew County,
where she found that large numbers of the pioneers there had come from Beckwith
and adjoining townships. She jokingly suggests that her Beckwith book should be
titled Beckwith North!
Having worked on these two projects for the past few months she has discovered
that many of the families were inter-related even before they left their country
of origin, and chain migrations often took place within families.
Carol can be contacted at R. R. 2, Renfrew, ON, K7V 3Z5.
