  • Notes 
    • "...his accomplishments give him a good claim to be considered a "father of the Huron Tract." By 1832 he and his sons had built the major part of the road from Waterloo to Goderich and part of the stretch between what is now Clinton and London. Along the former road he established inns which were managed by his son-in-law Andrew Helmer, Sebastian Fryfogel, and Andrew Seebach, and he himself took care of one near Clinton."

      " Having set 7 December as the date for action, Mackenzie returned to Toronto and presented his completed plan to Rolph and Morrison. ... When Rolph suggested the need for a military leader, Mackenzie asked Colonel Anthony Van Egmond, an ardent foe of the Compact and a man of extensive military background who lived in the Huron Tract, to take command of the rebel forces. "
