Hardships Notwithstanding:
Life in Denbigh Township, Ontario, 1890-1914

Edited by Andrew Minigan

This book is the story of Denbigh Township from 1890 until the First World War -- the coming and goings, triumphs and tragedies of people living along the colonization roads which opened up land on the Canadian shield. Most of the settlers were recent immigrants from Germany. Sources of income were slim and included lumber camps, mining and hard scrabble farms. The settlers entertained high hopes, but they also feared that their sons and daughters would seek easier lives far away. As the reader will see, their fears were justified. The source is a local newspaper, the Napanee Express. The newspaper correspondent is not identified.
