Some items of interest noted in the research:
The east half of Lot 15 Concession 6 containing 95 acres was granted to John McGregor by Patent dated April 23, 1866. This section now contains the Lakeside Rd/White Pine Lane road area.
Lot 14 Consession 5 containing 130 acres was granted to The Canada Company by patent dated October 26, 1846. This section now contains the Hardwood Ridge Rd road area.
Culverts in Fairs Creek were installed in 1972 by James Creighton, according to a lawyer produced August 1980 document, to give vehicular access to Hardwood Ridge Rd. This was reported to the Hardwood Ridge Road Committee at it first meeting on September 3, 1972.
