  • Notes 
    • 01 Sep 2002 - Duncan Jerome Chisholm recollects that he had a Music Store in New Glasgow. He was a professional Piano Tuner. Port Hood lore is that Colin proposed marriage to Marcella MacDonald, mother of Duncan J. Chisholm, the writer of this article, and obviously she did not accept his offer of marriage. It took the people around Port Hood a long time to realize why he as a blind man was so successful at playing cards; they were in Braille and Collie knew which cards were held by his opponents.
