Might be even older than we thought.

The deeds I found recently are dated back as early as 1893, but they don’t specify if a house was already on the property that is described.

But the names on the documents give me a starting point for digging in to do some research.

Turns out the McMackins are recorded in the 1884 census as being from New Brunswick, both about 35 years old, with two small sons. He was a carpenter.

Does make me wonder.

Hope to pull together more pieces of the puzzle soon.
