Growing Up in Knicky Knocky Quebec, Gordon C. Parsons


Knicky Knocky, in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, was settled in 1836 with immigrants from England and Ireland, including my ancestors, the Parsons.  There were no more than 20 families living there at its peak.
My children, and now my grandchildren, always enjoyed me telling them stories about my childhood growing in Knicky Knocky. They suggested that I should write the stories down for future generations to enjoy, which I have now done.

The book contains a collection 57 of these stories, each illustrated by photos and images. Some of the most popular stories are: Dale’s Pet Rabbit, The Famous Bear Cubs, Clash of the Titans (Kenny Herring and Bruce Kerr), Willard vs the Sawmill Workers, A Generous Friend (Wayne Martin), The Fortune Teller, “Taking Care” of Barry’s Hens, Those Tough Doughertys, and Who did you vote for Doris?
