About John Bromley

“During their sojourn there, John was stolen by Indians, and some time elapsed, before his discovery. Then the Indians could not be induced to give him up, but promised to take him home for a visit once a year. When, however, they finally released him, he procured employment as a mail-carrier for the Hudson Bay Fur Company, – his route being from Fort Coulonge to Fort William.”

The John of this excerpt from the Myrtle Bromley History 1939, is the second son of the Immigrant Ancestor James Sr. and Margaret Madden Bromley. It is the sort of event, (which took place in Prescott County), that makes one wish that John had written his autobiography – what tales could he tell, – tales of a frontiersman. Unfortunately he died young as the result of a fall.
