Forests and Clearings: The History of Stanstead County, Province of Quebec, with Sketches of More Than Five Hundred Families
Stanstead County lies just north of the Vermont border in southern Quebec. It was first settled in the very early 1800s by families from New England, especially Vermont and New Hampshire. This volume was compiled by one of the last surviving pioneers, and provides a brief history of the towns of Stanstead, Hatley, Magog, Barnston, Coatickook and Barford with particular emphasis on their initial settlements. There is also some material on the adventures of the pioneers, religious affairs, Stanstead Seminary and Stanstead Wesleyan College. About three-quarters of the book, however, consists of genealogies of the pioneer families living between the mid 1700s and late 1800s. An everyname plus subject index complements the volume. Genealogists with missing branches on their New England family trees may very well find them here.
