  Mom said Grandpa Dobson sailed to Barbados, along with his brother Jim, to collect molasses. He worked for T.J. Caldwell who owned a wholesale/retail store. The story is that there was a false bottom on the molasses barrels and that they actually were smuggling in rum (not a proven story though). Afterwards, Grandpa was a spotter for the railway & was responsible for seeing that they were unloaded & the contents driven by horse & wagon to the wholesaler. Mom said her grandfather was very strict & walked very tall & proud. When you ate at his table, you did not talk. If you did talk, he'd drop his fork & knife & stared at you until you quit talking. He was a man of few words. He had woodland & hauled wood all winter by sleigh.
  Obit - Death has again visited the community of New Carlisle, Quebec, & taken one of its oldest residents, the late Archie Dobson, who passed away at his home on February 26th (Sat.), after a long and painful illness, which was borne with patience & fortitude.
