Author of "The Hard Road Ahead: The Addington Colonization Road of Early Ontario", Linda Corupe, visited The Cloyne & District Historical Society last week.     She shared her research about Road Agent Aylesworth Bowen Perry and his supervision of the building of the road.   It started in Sheffield Township, north of Napanee to Brudenell Township, to meet the Peterson Road in the 1860s.    Perry's descendants were in the audience that gathered from Ottawa, Kingston, Tweed, Belleville and Trenton.

The two-volume book shall be available in The Cloyne Pioneer Museum and Archives in the Spring.
