  • 7000

By W. H. Higgins

Born in 1808, in a log cabin in the woods, this book is packed with detail on the life of Joseph Gould, with a look at life as an early settler of Uxbridge, Canada. Herein is his ancestry, his political and municipal life, a former member of the Canadian Parliament, effects of the War of 1812 and an exciting period of Canadian history. We see the trials and struggles of the first pioneers of early settlement. We learn why his father moved to Canada instead of to Ohio, which is where he wanted to go.
