I promise this is the last post! but incase you hadn't seen this, it is taken from - Musquodoboit Pioneers. A Record of Seventy Families, Their Homesteads and Genealogies 1780 - 1980.

Page 184 - James Benvie

James Benvie was a native of Scotland, where he spent his earlier years. He was a soldier in the British army and he came to Nova Scotia with his regiment. At the expiration of his term of service he located in the Musquodoboit Valley where he served as captain of Militia and also as a justice of peace. He was a man of considerable education. Some of his writings are still in existence, having the appearance of copper plate engravings. He operated a good farm in the section mentioned above for many years.

He had a son Andrew who was born in Musquodoboit. Andrew bought a farm at Salt Springs where he passed the balance of his life, living to be about 70 years of age.

He married Hannah Laws, a native of England.

Their son Eben married Margaret McLean of Salt Springs, dau. of Robert McLean who was one of the early settlers of Salt Springs, Pictou County.
