Presenter Peggy Stewart will talk about Daniel McKenzie, a Wintering Partner of the North West Company, whose grave is located in Blue Church Cemetery in Augusta Township. Mr. McKenzie was imprisoned at Fort William by Lord Selkirk in 1816. He subsequently successfully sued Lord Selkirk. Mr. McKenzie’s life is an interesting story, connected with fur trader and cartographer Peter Pond and with Sir Alexander Mackenzie, the namesake of Canada’s Mackenzie River. Ms. Stewart is a descendant of this notable Canadian.
Come and join us at 7:30 pm on Mon. Dec. 11th at the Brockville Museum to hear about this fascinating character.
