Canada is a country in the northern part of North America. Its ten provinces and three territories extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean, covering 9.98 million square kilometres, making it the world's second-largest country by total area. Its southern border with the United States, stretching some 8,891 kilometres (5,525 mi), is the world's longest bi-national land border. Canada's capital is Ottawa, and its three largest metropolitan areas are Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver.
Restigouche County is located in north-central New Brunswick, Canada. The county is named for the Restigouche River which flows through the county and is famous for its salmon pools, which have attracted wealthy American and Canadian tourists to the region's summer colonies for decades. Forestry dominates the local economy.
New Brunswick is one of four Atlantic provinces on the east coast of Canada. According to the Constitution of Canada, New Brunswick is the only bilingual province. About two-thirds of the population declare themselves anglophones, and one third francophones. One-third of the population describes themselves as bilingual. Atypically for Canada, only about half of the population lives in urban areas, mostly in Greater Moncton, Greater Saint John and the capital Fredericton.
Located on the south bank of the Restigouche River 10 km west of Campbellton, the village is situated where the tides on the Restigouche River cease to become visible, the reason for its name.
The Restigouche River is a river that flows across the northwestern part of the province of New Brunswick and the southeastern part of Quebec.

The first settlers of the area were Scottish. Early area farms were owned by Moffats, Gerrards, Duncans, Adams, Duffs, Barclays, Christophers, and Ayletts. Most of these early settlers, such as James Aylett, a British subject in the 20th regiment of his Majesty's Army; Thomas Barclay, a Scotsman; and Robert Adams are buried in the Athol House Cemetery near Frasers Mill. Graves in the cemetery date from as early as 1791. The Athol House Cemetery is the oldest British Cemetery in Restigouche County.

Duncan is a Scottish and Irish surname. For the etymology of the surname Duncan this web page cites: Dictionary of American Family Names. Another opinion is that the Gaelic Donnchadh is composed of the elements donn, meaning "brown"; and chadh, meaning "chief" or "noble". In some cases when the surname originates in County Sligo, Ireland, it is an Anglicised form of the Gaelic Ó Duinnchinn, meaning "descendant of Donncheann". The Gaelic Donncheann is a byname composed of the elements donn, meaning "brown-haired man" or "chieftain"; and ceann, meaning "head". The surname Duncan is represented in Scottish Gaelic as MacDhonnchaidh.
Adams is a common surname of English, Scottish, and Irish origin, meaning "son of Adam".
