Members of the Rogers family of Peterborough are featured on this map including James Zaccheus Rogers, whose father Robert David Roberts originally settled in Ashburnham and started a grist mill. He helped protect Canada's borders during the Fenian Raids along with his father and brother Charles. James' military achievements during the Fenian Raids earned him the rank of colonel. James besides owning a mill formed the Ontario Canoe Company in the 1880s, which later became the Peterborough Canoe Company.

“Inverlea,” the home of Judge Dennistoun is also featured on this map. Judge Dennistoun's thirteen acre lot is located on the outskirts of town right on the bank of the Otonabee River.
