"The Cargills were of Scottish descent, but during the wars, some fled to Ireland and other countries. David's ancestors were living in Northern Ireland and, in 1825, boarded a ship bound for America. They landed in Montreal, where David Cargill was born. They settled in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.
In 1865, David Cargill, enlisted in the last call for volunteers in the Union Army, which gave him the privilege of acquiring a homestead in the USA. He crossed into Michigan at Port Huron, took a train to Grand Haven, Michigan; then by small steamship to Pentwater which, at the time, was just a small sawmill town.
David & Agnes had eight children... [see above]
This family of ten stayed with a family in Smith Corners for a month while locating a homestead, finally settling in Section 36, Weare Township. They walked and carried their few belongings the five miles along Indian trails and virgin timber to the homestead."
