High Fives - June 2, 2017

Gail takes us through her search at archives for the bounty claims of her ancestors that served during the Fenian Raids. My ancestors that served all died before 1912. Some units served in Hemmingford - there the house my Dad renovated and I bought from him was the house of Loyalist Colonel John Scriver built around 1812. I walked where they walked!

How many of these have you seen?
