Families: Murdoch Buchanan - Unknown Unknown

Notes:

1. [1891] 1891/58/85.

2. Donald Duncan's wife, Catherine Gordon, was from Valleyfield (to the East) [FSO] and it appears that Donald bounced back and forth between Ocean View (Colville Road) and places farther East such as Valleyfield and Heatherdale. This might explain the family's absence from 1881C for Colville Road, despite being marked in the 1880 Atlas as farming a strip of land on the South side of the road. (Interestingly the 1841C enumerator notes this tendency to move back and forth between the established areas and the newly cleared areas to the East in one of his many interesting comments on the Lot 57 1841C. (p. 38) [AC]

Notes on Donald Duncan Buchanan:

1. Parents were PEI-PEI. [1891]

2. Donald swapped the farm with John Gordon sometime between 1890 and 1894. I am not sure why. [JB]

Notes on Catherine Gordon:

1. Parents Scotland-Scotland. [1891]

2. From Valleyfield. [FSO]

Notes on John William Buchanan:

1. Drowned on a log drive in B.C. He was 37. [JB]
