Geographic*: Beckwith Township, Lanark County

From the book: In Search of Lanark by Carol Bennett under Beckwith Township entry: "Gillies' Corners on the old Perth road, was another thriving community at one time. It was named for Archibald Gillies, a settler of 1819 who ran an inn in that neighborhood for twenty years. It catered for the Perth to Bytown traffic when the state coach passed through the community twice daily. It was the coming of the railroad which caused the demise of this community."
