  • Notes 
    • William owned property south of the Anglican Church at New Carlisle. The street west of the church was the west boundary of the property. Later he traded with Mr. Edward Caldwell for the property in Paspebiac where he made his home. It was here that he started to clear his farm in a thick wooded country of maple, birch, spruce, pine and cedar which was of little value in those days.

      The lumber for the buildings were sawed with a whip saw at the old saw pit. Shingles were split from cedar logs and shaved with the draw knife.

      He later gave the eastern part of the property to his son William.

      While on a visit to the Carr Harris home at Bathurst, William became seriously ill. The doctor was summoned, but he pronounced the case hopeless, and William died shortly after. He was 75 years old.
