The country then was fierce and wild
But upon this soil would come a child.
In hopes of freedom he'd bravely come
To find peace and love and build his home.
What hardships and dangers would he know
The honor of heritage to him we owe.
Lest we forget this hearty band
Who gave their all in this new land.
We must remember and write it down
To learn our history before it's gone.
With each new name we salute the past
In hope the memories will forever last.
So search and seek and shed a tear
For all those brave young pioneers.
In memory of Robert de Eyton and my many couzins -- Robert's legacy.
