In Response To: Re: John Jack gravestone and epitaph ()
The Author of John Jack's tombstone was my ancestor Dr. Daniel Bliss who fled from being hung by the traitors of the Crown to Plaster Rock New Brunswick where he built a home that is now a publicly owned building to this day. He was one of 5 generations of barristers and Bliss Carmen, one of Canada's best known poets of the day is his descendant. Of note the home Daniel Bliss lived in is owned by the state of Massacheusets I believe it was where the surrunder of the American civil war took place.
