  • Notes 
    • The first carriage builder to come to Tatamagouche was John A. McCurdy, of Onslow. In the early "fifties", he commenced business in a shop about opposite the present Post Office. He was married to Elizabeth Bryden and lived in the house now owned by Dr. Sedgwick. His two children are Mrs. C. N. Cunningham of the village, and Gordon,
      who is Police Inspector of the Rainy River District. About 1860, McCurdy moved back to Onslow and Alex. McLeod commenced the same business in the shop now owned by James Perrin.
