Two hundred years ago, in a few months, settlement started in present day 
Ottawa. The Richmond Military Settlement settled 181 ex-soldiers and civilians
for a total of about 454 settlers. It took about 3+ years to complete the terms of
settlement. My info leads me to believe that many of those settlers left soon
after settling. Where did they go??. Records available give some info an the
settlers who stayed.
(A list of soldiers who settled can be found by going back in this blog to the year
2015 and civilians to the years 2016/7. Both lists have the surnames in alpha order)
More info later.
