    1832 ... Topographical Sketches. pg. 142-143
    Township of Cambridge ... the Petite Nation runs through the greater part of it crosswways, and a branch of it called the Castere river; both those rivers, at the time of the year that navigation closes, answer the purpose of good roads. Mr. Crysler?s mills on the Nation in Finch, and Mr. Loucks?s saw-mill in Russell, on the Castere, will afford great advantages to settlers that may settle in Cambridge. This township was granted to New England loyalists; large grants were made in it to individuals....
    Township of Russell: ... generally indifferent, large swamps in it with white sandy bottom; there is only one settler in it, a Mr. Loucks, who built a mill on the Castere river: there are no roads in it; it is well watered by the Castere, which forms into several branches. This township has lately been located by emigrants from Scotland, and militia-men who served during the last war with the United States. Russell has almost been entirely stripped of all the oak and pine fit for market, by the lumbermen. . .?
