Donald, me too.

From Glenelg in 1842 via Greenoch aboard the barque HMS Adelaide to Saint John , New Brunswick, Canada, Alexander McDonald. Settlers for the New Brunswick Land Company, and half of them died of fever that first winter, they arrived late in September and were placed in the wilderness of the Mirimichi Area, in sheds and shacks with no food or tools to cut wood. ( axe heads with no holes for handles in them.)

They spoke only Gaelic, interpreter was a flowse called Nickleson.

They revolted in the spring and tore up their Indentures of Servitude, and went off on their own. None dared try to enforce those indentures. We've distrusted government ever since,and take bitter solace in our bibles and guns. LOL.
