The publisher extends recognition and thanks to Esther Summers for loaning her original copy of this rare book for use in publishing this historical reprint. The original book is now in the Maholme Foundation Genealogical and Historical Centre library in St. Catharines, Ontario. Mrs. Summers often made margin notes and/or underlined words in her reference books. We've digitally removed those marks where it could be done without damaging the text of the book -- others remain.
