bullet  General Notes:

"From West Branch Days (p. 104):

Agnes Morton and her husband James Wilson lived on Lot#23 on the south side of the West Branch. Access to the property was by way of a wooded side road from the main highway on the south side of the river, and by a so-called wood-road leading to the Normandie, then part of Lousibourg, now St. Norbert. There was a shortcut across the McLeod farm to the home of Agnes's brother John Morton, but this was only a footpath. Except for those who travelled on foot, the location was very isolated; James liked it that way.

Family lore says that James was a deserter from the army in the American Civil War, but it doesn't say which side. It is known that he organized his large family along army lines with a chain of command from the oldest to the youngest, that he didn't send his children to school, and kept to himself in a day when most people were glad to have neighbours. The 1861 census gives James' place of origin as Lanarkshire, Scotland."
