Title: Lakevale, Antigonish County, Nova Scotia

Date: 25 February 2009

Good day all; Lakevale, a locality north of Antigonish.  Part of the Morristown district, in 1871 the Legislature of Nova Scotia changed the names of the North and South Lakes of Morristown to Lakevale:  a discriptive term because of the low-lying intervale land along the lakes.
For a time it was called `Lakevale Chapel` because of the Roman Catholic Chapel now St. Columba`s Church.
The first grantees were John and Allan Livingstone, Mary McIsaac, Christina McEachern, James Anderson and Donald, Ronald, John and Angus McDonald.
Settled first by Loyalist soldiers who had fought in the American Revolutionary War:  then about 1800, Highland emigrants began to arrive and bought farms from the soldiers.
Among the early settlers were Donald, Angus, Alexander and Allen MacDonald from Knoydart, Scotland:  also Donald McDonald, Hugh`s son and John McDonald of Arisaig and Donald Cameron of Lochaber, Scotland came out in 1801 and John Cameron a native of the Island of Lewis, Scotland.
A. McGillivary was the postal way office keeper in 1871 and Angus McDonald was appointed on October 1, 1873.
The population in 1956 was 140.

Regards;

Roberta
