    • During 1871, James & Eliza emigrated to Canada with Eliza's sister Rachel & Richard PENNELL. They sailed on 11th of May on S.S. Niger arriving at Quebec City, Montreal on the 29th of May. They, along with the PENNELLs, boarded a train to Sand Point, only to find there was no work there. They (and the PENNELLs) finally settled in Carlton Place, Ontario, where they built a log cabin large enough for two families and divided it, living as such until they could get better lodging. Carlton Place was very remote then and was mostly lumbering. The Pennell's and the Hone's tried to establish a brick yard, but lumber, being so available, was the main source of building material. There was no demand for brick. The two families decided to take up farming, first in Horton Township, which turned out to be unsuccessful. The PENNELLs took up a land Grant in North Ontario.
      DEATH - James died in 1907 at the home of his daughter Maria Carpenter in Perth, Ontario. He is buried in the small Anglican church in Rutherglen, Ontario
