In 1877, David Wing and five other families discussed the possibility of moving from Brome County, Quebec, where farming was difficult at best, and near impossible at worst. Farming prairie land, where homesteads were being given away in America, looked promising from their vantage point in the North Country of Canada. The group thought that Kansas might be their answer, so David, his wife and their two toddlers, and a bachelor brother, loaded their covered wagons and set out for what they hoped would be their promised land.
