When you say they "landed", do you mean where they ultimately lived, or
where their ship docked, or the border crossing they used when entering
There are a number of ports from Newfoundland to Quebec and travellers could
take inland boats to continue their journey to several Great Lakes harbours.
Also, persons who arrived at US ports could take the train to Canada and a
Customs Officer would be on board the train to inspect papers etc., and
would stamp the passport with the name of the border crossing on that
particular train route.
If you check that name in Canadian Placenames at
www.geonames.nrcan.gc.ca/english/Home.html you'll see the description of
the many places in Canada with that name. However, there is a "Blacks
Harbour" in New Brunswick, on the Bay of Fundy and not far from the port of
St. John, NB... just in case...
