Once home to over 60 flourishing villages, Middlesex County, in the heart of southwestern Ontario, has a rich history just waiting to be discovered. Anthropologist and local history enthusiast Jennifer Grainger has, through extensive research and much personal exploration, produced a valuable document chronicling the "rise and fall" of these pioneering settlements, truly the foundation of all that exist in the area today. Nostalgia buffs, armchair adventurers, genealogists and curious daytrippers alike will welcome the arrival of this timely publication with its many fascinating stories and countless visual reminders of the past. Jennifer Grainger has been researching vanished villages in Middlesex County for the past seven years, using old news articles, maps, county directories and interviewing modern residents of the villages. An archaeologist by training from the Universities of Toronto and London, England, she has also written chapters for Middlesex township histories. A travel agent by profession, researching and preserving southwestern Ontario's past remains her passion. Jenny lives in London with her dog Sandy, several African violets and hundreds of books.
