◦Margaret and Anthony emigrated to Canada just after being married in New York Province (State). They set out from Cambridge, Arlington District, in 1793 with 2 cows, an ox team, and a sleigh on which they piled all of the furniture it would hold. The trip took 6 weeks. They lived in Fredricksburg for 8 years then he bought lot 13, concession 6, Ernestown Township and moved his family there.
Divine Service was held once in 2 weeks in a log schoolhouse, and prayer meeting in private houses. People came on foot for miles guided by glazed trees.
There is a tombstone marker at Switzer's cemetery for Anthony, however the church was not built until 1926 so he could have been buried at the 4th line church.
