Corrections to History and Stories of Clyde River

Anyone undertaking an historical project can likely understand the number of details and facts that need checking. Although we tried our best to verify information, our readers of the first edition generously offered corrections which we will be able to include in a second printing of this book. If any of you have other corrections, we welcome you to also send them to us. Additional changes will be made if the correct information is provided to the Committee.

      Just reading the above about page 49 “Gillespie” and note that the correction should be made on the spelling of Kenison’s name, note that it is one “n” not 2.
      His full name was Ewen Kenison.
      Although, he went by “Kenison” Also, Kenison was older than my father John Craig, who was also known as “Jack”.

    Please forgive me …. Aunt Tena spelled her name TENA, not TINA as I indicated earlier. Thank you so much.

    p. 44 Beer family history………. 3rd line should read

    “…..The deceased was born in County Derry,”

    The word “Derry” is missing.
