Narrative

Kinloss is now Huron-Kinloss township in Bruce, Ontario. Wikipedia says:
"The area was founded as a Scottish settlement in the mid-19th century by 109 families forced to leave the Isle Of Lewis during the Highland Clearances. The first post office at Ripley opened in 1857, and many of its original settlers are buried in the local Lewis Gaelic cemetery."

[The article also notes that residents work at Kincardine or Goderich (Huron County) so they are not far apart.]
