Best Western Ottawa City Centre
1274 Carling Ave., Ottawa, ON
Speaker : Randy Saylor
Topic : Loyalists and Quakers
Randy Saylor has a keen interest in the history and genealogy of the Bay of Quinte area. Loyalists and Quakers are part of his ancestral background as they were early settlers of the area. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~saylormowbray/
Quakers and Loyalists both were persecuted by the Patriots during the Revolutionary War. Randy’s talk will focus on some individual settlers to demonstrate this complicated relationship.
