      Some Early History of Kagawong and Billings Tp. (handwritten 54)
      (By R. J. Lloyd)
      My father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Moses Lloyd, and their sons William and R. J. Lloyd moved from Owen Sound to Kagawong, or Mudge Bay, as it was called at that time, on the Str. Northern Bell. They arrived at Kagawong on May 6th, 1879. As my father was a carpenter, he brought a chest of tools and also a crosscut saw, an axe, pick and shovel and some garden tools. He also brought a cow and calf and a dozen hens. The calf took sick and died that summer.
      We had no team and had to hire any team work done for the first two years, then we got a yoke of steers and broke them in. There was no hotel at Kagawong when we arrived, only a boarding house owned by Robert Henry and John Gray kept it. There was also a company store, a saw mill and grist mill owned by Robert Henry. The boarding house was the only place for accommodation so we stayed there until my father built our house. He and my older brother walked back and forth to work. My father got Mr. Alex Campbell to help him and as soon as they got the frame up and closed in, the roof on the downstairs floor laid, we moved in. the mosquitoes and black flies were something terrible. Mr. James Johnson and family, our neighbours, came to Manitoulin that same spring and stayed at the boarding house when we were there, while he and his son William built their house. They came from Innisfill.
      Mr. Robert Chinchey was foreman at the sawmill for a good many years and James McGinnis ran the company store, and Geo. Coulter was clerk. It stood on the site where the Snow store now stands. The grist mill was operated by Mr. Joe Wilson and his son Joe. After the father died Jack Bennett and Joe, Jr., operated it. The summer of 1878 or 1879 the mills were burned.
      In the fall of 1879 there was an epidemic of diphtheria at Kagawong and a good may of the children died with it.
      The old frame schoolhouse was built in the summer of 1878 and opened in 1879. A Mr. Young was the first teacher. Mr. Jos. Hunt and his family came from King township. Also Harry Ross and family and William Farquhar and family, who came from Innisfill were
