"The story of Emily's pioneer development emerges as a fascinating story about a typical rural Ontario township, then as now predominantly Irish, where Protestant and Roman Catholic farmers and villagers learned to help each other and live in neighbourly friendship, with a remarkable absence of friction, violence and crime, and with a family loyalty, industry and thrift which has carried from the township safely through, from Confederation to modern times". Time Period 1818-1973. Identified on spine as Lilies and Shamrocks. Locale: Emily--Ontario; Ontario--Canada; Victoria County--Ontario. (Canada, History--Canada, Irish Canadians, Local History, Pioneer Life, Rural Development, Settlement).
