The first article, entitled “My Great-Grandfather – Jean-Baptiste LANOUE”, is about a French-Canadian who moved to the town of Tillbury. In 1835, the family moved from Lacadie, Quebec to Hamilton, and then moved up to Chatham.

The second article is about “The RICHARDSON family of Tilbury” traces a family who moved from Roxbury, Scotland to Tilbury in the middle 1850s.
