I am a sixth generation descendant of early Black settler to New Brunswick. My ancestor Solomon Kendall first served with the Guides and Pioneers, settling in Lower Queensbury, New Brunswick, in the early 1800s. My mother was the last generation raised on the old homestead and has passed down our oral history to me.
