Monday, May 11th

To all,

 

On Monday, May 11th at 7:30 PM in the Brockville Museum the Leeds and Grenville Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society will hear Peter Alexander. Peter is a retired  teacher from South Grenville High School.  He and his wife Vivian live in an 1840 stone house on five acres of land situated on the Town Line Road between the former township of Kitley and the former township of Elizabethtown.

    

    Peter has been studying and building long rifles for many years as well as teaching others the art.  For a number of years he has volunteered at the Gun Shop in Colonial Williamsburg.

 

    His book “The Gunsmith of Grenville County” contains columns he wrote for the magazine “Muzzleloader” along with additional information not previously published.  The first chapter of that book, aptly called “Historical Background” tells the story of the period in America when the use of long rifles in America was developing through the settlement period and through various conflicts.  He includes a time-line showing inventions and events of that period.

 

See you there,

 

Ron S
