Statement from Jim Reid, son of the late author, Jennie Reid
pertaining to this online edition of the book:

        It is with a great sense of pride that Dan, Carolyn and I make our Mother, Jennie Reid's,  work of love,  "A Record of Seventy Musquodoboit Families",  available for publication on the Internet through the Nova Scotia GenWeb site.  It was her fondest dream to ensure the information, history and genealogy of the Musquodoboit Valley become available to anyone who was interested in her work.
        I can remember the many summer afternoons our family spent searching through the woods and brush; cleaning off old tombstones buried in moss; and reciting the valuable information contained on those stones to Mum who meticulously recorded it.  I can remember the many evenings sitting around the dining room table as Dad revealed the great wealth of stories and knowledge he had retained from living his full 80 years in the Valley.  I can remember the many interesting people who came to visit looking for information on their forefathers;   they picked Mum's brain for knowledge as she did likewise to them.  But most of all, I remember the great sense of satisfaction she so often expressed when she was able to see someone walk out our door with a much keener awareness of their family background.
        Our family would like to express our sincere gratitude to Carroll Armstrong who encouraged us to put the information online, and also for her work with Lark Szick, Volunteer Co-Ordinator for The Nova Scotia GenWeb Project, in co-ordinating the many volunteers who have given so freely of their time to prepare the book for publication on the Internet.
    I can see the smile of satisfaction on Mum's face expressing the accomplishment of her fondest dream.

Introduction

    History is like a continued story of which the beginning is lost in unrecorded time and many chapters are missing when we try to read it.  This seems to apply particularly to local village histories where so many things which are considered of no importance at the moment they occur, assume a large significance as time goes by.  The whole story can never be told.  Professor Garnet Sedgewick, one of the more illustrious sons of this valley, said once that he would like to write all he knew of Musquodoboit and them take the train out next morning!  Consequently, he just gave a little slice; a teasing taste as it were, and these volumes about seventy Pioneer families will endeavour to do the same.
    Daniel Reid, my father-in-law started it all.  He was born here in 1860, lived in the district all his life, and for many years owned and operated a General Store in Middle Musquodoboit.  Keenly interested in everything that went on in the small world of the valley, Mr. Reid's position as storekeeper enabled him to discuss with everyone the affairs of the day and of yesterday.  Admitting to a great curiosity about local history, his own mind replete with memories, he daily extracted stories and information from his older friends and neighbours, happy to idle away an hour chatting in the shop.  Daniel had known many of the Pioneer men and women, intimately.  As a child, he had

VII

probably stood beside his grandfather, James, and watched the first church taken down; the very building which the old man helped to build when he was young.
    As Bobby Burns remarked in one of his poems, "A chiel's amang us takin' notes and fain will prent 'em," so eventually, Daniel Reid gathered up the historical material garnered over the years and wrote a series of articles which appeared in the Truro Daily News during 1935-36.  These little accounts of Musquodoboit families, their arrivals in the valley and their Settlings, met with great public favour and are still treasured in numerous scrapbooks.
    Kenneth Reid, my husband, Daniel's son, took over the family business and he, too, with an interest in history and very retentive memory, enjoyed talking to people about old days and old ways.  Kenneth was of great assistance to me when the formidable task, of putting Daniel Reid's work, together with my genealogical tables, into possible book form, was undertaken.
    The genealogical research for these seventy families has occupied all my leisure time for twenty years.  My stepfather, the late T. H. Lodge, a very enthusiastic genealogist, gave me much help and encouragement in this gigantic project.  The work has been a labour of love, perhaps needless to say, and it was always my hope that upon completion, a private printing would be possible.  When this could not be arranged, it

VIII

seemed I must be resigned to let the manuscript gather dust on archival shelves forever more!
    Most happily however, this was not to be.  In 1979, the Musquodoboit Enterprisers Historical Committee applied for a New Horizon Grant to publish the book.  This was received, and a donation from the Nova Scotia Department of Culture paid for the typing.  The balance had been raised by pre-publication orders.
    All the work of preparing the material for the printer was undertaken by the voluntary Committee; as is usually the case, the Secretary, of the group has "borne the burden in the heat of the day."  It is impossible to express my gratitude to Mabel Smythe who has been largely responsible for this production.  It was she who, with the inception of the idea, prepared the Brief, which obtained the Grant, and has assisted in pruning, revising, and editing an unwieldy mass of manuscript into manageable form. Mrs. Smythe has contributed the "History of Presbyterianism in the Musquodoboit Valley", as well as much of the complied material in the latter part of Volume Two.
    It is a great joy to me that at last my book, long known as "Jennie Reid's History" is being published.  It deals with seventy Pioneer Families, their genealogies and homesteads, and is offered to everyone with an interest in the Musquodoboit Valley.  In so far as it has been possible to ascertain, the information in these pages is as correct

IX

as human fallibility will permit.  In any work comprising eight hundred and fifty pages of fine print, errors may be found, but they must be put down to accident and not intention.
    In gathering this data over the years, it has been our experience that even within families, members often disagree as to events, the people concerned and applicable dates.  Births, marriages, and deaths are always kept with great care, but even these may be wrong, "chance times", as we say in this valley.  Almost all my genealogical information has been taken down from Family Bibles, Church records and cemetery tombstones.
    Sometimes, no doubt, the dates had been inscribed in the "Good Book: by the shaky hand of a dim-eyed grandfather, and the figures are not easily decipherable.  Perhaps at times, a stonecutter was absentminded, or the chisel slipped and the gravestone tells the wrong story.  In a few cases, where no records exist, a family has given me an approximate date, which must serve until amended.  Over the past year, great publicity has been given to the publication of this book, and everyone concerned invited to bring or send corrections and revisions.  Many of these have come in and have been scrupulously incorporated, where appropriate.

X

    In coming years, we hope this book, which is being published in a limited edition of only five hundred copies, will prove to be a well-read treasure for succeeding generations of men and women.  May they seek and find their roots in its pages, and proudly proclaim themselves descendants of these Musquodoboit Pioneers.

Forward

    In 1979, When Jennie Reid presented this Committee with her manuscript as a free gift, the publication of it seemed an insurmountable task.  However, as the result of much volunteer labour, the only expenditure being for typing and printing, you now hold the book in your hands.
    Our warmest gratitude is expressed for a New Horizon Grant, and the contribution from the Nova Scotia Dept. of Culture, which enabled us to publish this historic document.
    It is our hope that these volumes will inspire much future exciting research in the Musquodoboit Valley.

was captured in one of the  wars, and he was carried to Louisburg, N.S.   Whether he was exchanged as a prisoner of war or released when peace was proclaimed is not known, but his knowledge of the New World led his descendant, John, to Nova Scotia.  John arrived in Halifax about the year 1783, a disbanded soldier.  His wife and daughters (Elizabeth and Mary) were at this time in Ireland.  Mr. Braden sent for them and after their arrival they lived in Halifax, for a few years.  Then the family came to Shubenacadie, lived there for awhile and then moved to Middle Musquodoboit.  A grant of 500 acres was issued on March 1, 1787 to John Breden.  This grant is the property of Elgin Murchy, 1980.  Mr. and Mrs. Braden had 4 children after coming to this country.  John Braden’s will was filed in 1794 and is in the court of Probate in Halifax.  This Braden history was given to Daniel Reid in 1935 by Mrs. Samuel Hutchinson who was over 90 years of age.  Her mind was very clear, and her memory excellent.  John Braden had 4 daughters and 2 sons.

Francis, Joseph and Thomas Parker settled on the farm owned by Fred Redden 1980.  Francis was killed by a tree falling on him at a chopping bee, getting wood for a sick neighbour.  Joseph was one of the four men who were drowned in Long Lake in June 1851.  The homes of these two brothers have been removed.  Sometime after this Thomas Parker sold the farm to Edward Leedham.  Later John McFetridge purchased the three farms.  He lived in the Thomas Parker house which he remodelled.

William Henry Cumminger

       Cornelius Comegys (later spelled Cumminger) left Lexmont, a town in Holland, and arrived in Jamestown, Virginia, about 1652.  Apparently Cornelius was given large grants of land in Maryland, because he settled there in 1661.  All known Cummingers in the United States and Canada are descendents of Cornelius.
       One of his sons was called William, and this William had a grandson, William Henry Cumminger, who arrived in Nova Scotia 1767 on the ship “Betsy” from Philadelphia.  William Henry came with his wife and five other families to settle on land grants under the Philadelphia Company scheme, and disembarked at what is now the town of Pictou.  At the time they arrived, it was a wilderness and this little group comprised the first white settlers on Northumberland Strait.

His grant was west of John Braden's.  Three men, John Braden, James Drady and Patrick Creigh each took up grants of land on March 1, 1787and next to each other, this makes it appear they knew each other quitewell and were perhaps friends in Ireland before coming herearound 1783.

Then in Upper Musquodoboit William Drady took up a grant of 88 acres on Mill Lake.  James had 3 sons and 3 daus.  Duncan - no record.

James settled in Halifax and John came to Meagher's Grant.  The date of their arrival is not know.  John Dunbrack is known, however, as the first settler in Meagher's Grant.  He came through by way of Truro and down the Musquodoboit River in a canoe.  He settled first at Gibraltar and afterwards at Meagher's Grant.  He had the first frame house in Musquodoboit.

Ref:  notes of A.B.Lay.
John married Catherine MacDougall, a sister of Alexander MacDougall.  They had 4 sons and 3 daus.
