Good Morning bloggers! Welcome to this week’s Transcription Tuesday! This week in the ledger is a page addressed to Joseph Mitchell. According to the Early History of Dunwich Township 1790-1903 we have discovered a couple documents registered to the Dunwich Township under Joseph Mitchell’s name with Thomas Talbot as the granter. Mr. Mitchell also became one of the first directors of the Tyrconnell Wharf & Harbour Company, recorded on the 29th of August, 1853. On the 13th of April 1861, it was recorded that Mitchell had two stock Shares of the Dunwich Pier Company. His name was also recorded in an Assessment Roll of the Village of Tyrconnell in 1858 and again in a list of Tyrconnell residence taken from Armstrong’s County of Elgin Directory for 1872.
