FYI from chapter member Dave Lamb

The attached refers to a bloody battle between the Ojibwa and Iroquois early 1700’s, the location; Jacob’s Island, Gannon Narrows, Peterborough. Would be interesting to follow up considering it being located on one of the main waterway routes to the Iroquois country, Kebec and the Land of the Huron. From The Peterborough Examiner :
