Lisa & Scott Rance

"He had many friends, and no enemies", yet met a violent death in Seguin over a hundred years ago. The trial for justice for the murder of a local family's Irish immigrant ancestor had introduced fifty witnesses - ordinary citizens living on the Colonization roads between Huntsville and Parry Sound in June of 1896. What has since emerged is "a story behind the story" - a fascinating set of circumstances of the industries, geographies and families of the time. Lisa and Scott will describe the process of discovery, which continues to be aided in great part by past residents of the District.
