- 10: Village Dugas, located at present-day Onslow, at the North River Bridge. The brothers Claude & Joseph DUGAS are believed to have founded this village with their young families about 1702. Their names appear on the 1703 Cobequid census, but not in 1701. Acadian homesteads would have been located on the low hills, overlooking their dyked farmland.
Cattle drives passed through here in Acadian times, and up to as late as the 1940s. Joseph DUGAS is known to have led cattle drives to Tatamagouche (north). The old Tatamagouche Road, beginning in Village Dugas, appears in both a report and on a map prepared in 1755. The gentle bend of the original course of the Dugato (North) River can still be seen today, although this river was straightened 60 years ago (around 1943).
