The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Salisbury, New Brunswick.

Sackville New Brunswick, Canada, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Virtual Hike, AncestorsSackville was where my 7th great-grandfather, Dr. John Jenks, had lived at one time long ago.

Dr. John Jenks attended the first town meeting of Sackville, New Brunswick in 1762. Dr. Jenks was part of a group of settlers know as the New England Planters.

Due to the expulsion of the Acadians from New Brunswick in the 1750’s there was a lot of land available there. Many New Englanders moved north to New Brunswick to take advantage of the vacant land. Dr. Jenks moved to Sackville along with a group of settlers from Smithfield, Rhode Island.

There was no specific reason to choose Salisbury as a destination, but it was along the route back to the US. I am setting shorter distances between destinations for better motivation for my daily walking.

My current plan is to make my way toward northern New York through Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. Perhaps I can find some interesting stops along the way.
