Biographical history

Norman McBain was born in 1914 and died in 1989. He had a long-standing interest in local history and offered great support to the Millbrook and Cavan Historical Society in the preparation of the history of This Green and Pleasant Land: Chronicles of Cavan Township. The McBain family homesteaded in northeast Cavan Township, and his interest in the family history led to McBain's extended research into all aspects of the history of the Township.
