Read an excerpt from The Story of Albion by Esther Heyes.  She provides an excellent account of our ancestors’ first years in Albion Township.  Benjamin Jenkinson Roadhouse (1836-1917) moved to Kirks Corners near St. Marys, Ontario.  This is a description of his life and family.  The photos noted in this article were not available.

From 60 pages of letters and memoirs written in the spring of 1949, Mabel L. Sullivan writes to her cousin, Sarah Emma (Roadhouse) Dunn 1881-1961.  Titled “History of the Roadhouse Family from 1744 to 1949” she includes pictures and information on the Elvidege, Hacking and Gauly families as well as the Roadhouses.  Mabel’s mother was Annie Lavina Roadhouse from the Newmarket area.  Mabel was once the secretary to Henry Ford. Four of those sixty pages can be read here.                                                Provided by Jeff Dunn, Easton, Maryland
