Over the Rocks of Bathurst

by Linda Middleton
(A Genealogical Portrait of the Echlin Family)

Five Echlin sons ventured  across the sea from Ireland in a home-made sail boat. One died of Black Fever before reaching his destination but four survived the trip and settled in the Lanark County area. 

This story of the home-made sail boat has been passed down over many generations about the Echlin ancestors’ migration to Canada.  It became the Seed of Discovery and inspiration for the author to spend many years searching to fine the truth.

This Genealogical Portrait captures many branches of the Echlin family over a period of almost five centuries.  The challenges of migrating, the hardships encountered on arrival in the Perth settlement in 1817 and finding their situation much different than what they had been promised presents the reader with an  interesting and well-documented family genealogy.   Anyone with Echlin roots will treasure this book.

Paperback editions (8" x 11") of about 250 pages are available
