Kittson County Historical Society

Kittson profiles and photos from the past and present

I have been working on my family tree and have run across many of my family having come to the US from England to Canada's Prince Edward Island and then to St Vincent where my grandfather was born. Why did they come to St Vincent? I imagine it was a big draw because of lumbering, but I know nothing of the area.

I have Clows in  my family tree that came from PEI to St Vincent.

My great grand aunt, Harriet Edkins married Hammond Willis Clow.

Why did they come and why did my family leave in 1919? Floods? Lack of jobs?

I tried the site you listed above. It said the blog expired 14 days ago, yet it is only 12 days since you sent this. Sad. Any insight on what was on the blog?

I tried again and I found it, going to read it now. Thanks.
