Hello Ron, Many thanks for your reply and the interpretation of the descriptions of the soil. I was particularly interested in the grazing system you mentioned and the involvement of communities in it’s management. You have also given me a much better picture of what the land was really like

Hi Janet Thank you for the kind words about my farming answer. The rule is never ask a farmer about something related to  farming unless you are having trouble sleeping. The farthest I have gone back on my family tree is John " McCoy-4704"1766-1866, you can find John and Mary Gadys (Gaddes)

Hi Janet Don't know if this is of help but I remembered I do have a Wilson connection Ruby (McCoy)Wilson but much more modern. Wilson was a common name in our area and likely arrived on the same boat at Quebec city and made our way like the rest of us to the Ottawa Canada area.
