In 1861, three, one-story, one family log cabins on neighboring lots housed Richard Rivers Sr., Lewis & Marie Fountain, and Lewis Jr. & Esther Fountain.
      The Bruce County, Carrick Twp. Directory of 1867 shows Lewis Fountain living on Lot 12, Concession 5, Carrick Twp., with Joseph Rivers on Lot 11, Concession 5.
