The following entries are excerpted from Thomas Hutchinson's 1864-65 and 1866-67 editions of the Nova Scotia Directory. Note that unlike the census, these directories list only the heads of household. They are notorously incomplete and often miss many families in a community. For both years, the exact same information was listed for the communities of Economy, Lower Economy, and Five Islands.
