Description:

Elgin County, Located on the picturesque north shore of Lake Erie, at one time was home to more than forty once-flourishing villages. This sequel to Vanished Villages of Middlesex explores former communities, including Tyrconnell, Port Talbot, Cowal, Grovesend, Mapleton, and Jamestown - now mere ghosts of the past. Today, a few possess a handful of inhabitants, a pioneer church, or a one-room school, while others have only a cemetery or historical marker left to acknowledge their previous existence.
