E.A.C. Pew - Canada's First Secret Agent
"What I discovered along the way about my Great-Great Grandfather Edward Anderson Craig (EAC) Pew (1834-1908) of Welland was incredible. It turns out EAC was, among many other things, one of Canada’s first secret agents!"
E.A.C. Pew was active as a secret agent during the Fenian Raids. E.A.C. Pew is descended from Samuel Pew UEL.
