Edward Savage, The Story of Melrose, Westmorland County (copy from Université Saint Joseph Archives, Moncton), transcription online http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nbwestmo/history.htm, p. 7-8: "1827. The Savages claim the distinction of having had a farm in Ireland; not freehold of course, but a farm, "Bally-na-moche". They consisted of the mother, six brothers, four sisters, and the family of the eldest brother, Daniel, who after the death of his first wife married again, and had a second family in Ireland. He never came to America, and all accounts of him and the second family are lost. In the order of age the brothers were: Denis, John, Patrick, Maurice, William, James. One sister, Mrs. Timothy Hartnett, joined her husband; a Mrs. Mahoney came to St. Martin, N. B., and a Mrs. Hearn went with her husband to the United States; the youngest daughter, Margaret, married to Patrick Hickey, came, accompanied by her mother, Margaret (née Lane).
    They did not come all together, but at different times as their means permitted, in groups of six or seven. Some landed at St. John, some at Miramichi, and some even at Quebec. The journey over land that a number of them were obliged to take from Quebec, carrying small infants, as well as all their worldly effects, was among the greatest hardships they suffered. It took some five years before they were all united in Melrose."

  3. [S79] Rev. Edward Savage, The Story of Melrose, p. 8: "Three of [the Savage brothers], William, Maurice and James, made up their minds to abandon the forests and seek the prairie lands of the West. So at the earliest possible moment after the death of their mother, they left for Clark County, Illinois, on the prairies. The cross roads where Maurice died is now a street corner, occupied by the Moody Temple, one of the valuable sites in Chicago."
