Researching Downeast Maine and Maritime Canada Families Together
One of the towering figures of Charlotte County, N. B., history was the Reverend Duncan McColl, who settled there with the U. E. Loyalists and brought the Gospel to the other settlers. As a young man he served with the Argyll Highlanders and fought in the siege of what is now Castine, Maine. Kirk McColl in Saint Stephen was named after him. His life is fascinating, to me, at least, given that he kept the border folk from fighting each other in the War of 1812. I pulled together his autobiography, which was extracted from his journals and serialized in a mid-nineteenth century Methodist magazine. If you want to read it, and you have a Kindle, it's available on Amazon for 99¢, which is as cheap as I could make it. http://www.amazon.com/Memoirs-Duncan-McColl-ebook/dp/B00IRRTUAY/ref...
