Major (Retired) W. E. (GARY) CAMPBELL
I contacted the author of one of my books related to the war of 1839. I have seen Gary’s name come up on many sites when searching about the war of 1812 and 1839. He replied the following about my inquiries into the cave mystery.
Eric, hello! I know nothing about these stories concerning Blue Mountain. However, the 104th was nowhere near it during their march from Fredericton to Kingston. I can’t comment on the Indigenous aspect of this story. This link will take you to the true story of the March of the 104th. All the best, Gary https://www.stjohnriver.org/war_of_1812.htm
