OCT 22, postal places, Canada: Deseronto, ON
Authors' Note: ON is the official abbreviation for the Canadian province of Ontario, in which the village of Deseronto, population 1800, is situated 5 km (3 miles) south of Highway 401, a limited-access four-lane main route that leads from Toronto to Montreal.
Captain John Deseronto, a native Mohawk, fought in the British Military Forces during the American Revolutionary War. Until 1848, "Deseronto", a site along the northern shore of Lake Ontario, served as an indigenous reserve.
Incidentally, although many characters in American western movies said "Let's vamoose!", the Lone Ranger was better known for voicing, "Hi Yo Silver, away."
