Union Road Company Stockholders Book Published

Bob Moore's transcription of the Union Road Company Stockholders book. Check it out at

"Stock books such as the Union Road Company help to track the very transient population of Elgin County during the 1850s even though we have both the 1851 and the 1861 census of Southwold Township to aid us . The stock list also give us some indication of the financial means of the stockholders in 1853."

If you would like a photocopy of an ancestor name on the list please send a request to the Elgin OGS per the lookup fee policy outlined at the bottom of the Union Stock Book page.
