Gaff Linkum, 1907 novel based on Morpeth, Ontario

Gaff Linkum, by Archie P. McKishnie, 1907

It’s hard to imagine that the hamlet where I grew up, Morpeth, Ontario, was ever a bustling pioneer metropolis. But as I’ve read in “As the Story is Told,” it was quite the town. Archie P. McKishnie apparently thought so too, because in 1907, he published a novel that was set on the area’s inhabitants in the 1870s. The entire book can be read here: Gaff Linkum. I read part of it, but the plot kind of fell apart and I didn’t make it all the way through. But definitely interesting!
