Ship Hector

A replica of the Ship Hector on display in the harbor of Pictou, Nova Scotia. This ship brought Scottish Highlanders from Scotland to Nova Scotia in 1773. I have not determined what ship brought my ancestors to Nova Scotia but they may have married a descendant of a settler on the Ship Hector. Carol and I located the deed at the courthouse but we could not locate the farm by just driving around on the mountain. Our search for the farm had us traveling on unpaved roads and walking through a cemetery in the rain, it doesn't get any better than this!
