A DESCENDANT OF FREEDOM SEEKERS THAT CAME TO CANADA
My great-great grandfather came to Canada in 1850 from kentucky with his brother and 9 year old sister. He married a Mohawk woman. They lived in Fort Erie, ON. That is my maternal grandmother.
My maternal grandfather’s father was born in London, ON in 1840. In 1863, he went to Buffalo and enlisted to fight in the Civil War. He fought in Florida. Although he lost an arm, he returned to Fort Erie and made a living as a cab driver.
| am very proud of my family.
