The transcriptions of petitions, early publicity and plaques of or about Laura, her husband James and their children – and from a British officer, James FitzGibbon – give insights into Secord family opportunities and their financial status. The 700 direct descendants of Laura Secord to the eighth generation, or present day, are also listed. Laura Ingersoll Secord performed an act of heroism, extraordinary and courageous espionage conducted by a woman in wartime from behind enemy lines. It took a sensitive Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, and later the Prince of Wales, to recognize Laura Secord’s heroism and her contribution to the British wartime cause in 1813. Her bravery and exemplary life epitomize the way ordinary loyalists lived with strife on the Niagara frontier in the early nineteenth century."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
