I came across this this morning and thought it might help someone. The
San Juan Islands are south of Vancouver, BC and are part of the state of
WA.
>From the book, "Making History: The People Who Shaped the San Juan
Islands"

"After ownership of the islands was decided, Shotter sold out in 1875
and went to the mainland, eventually to Douglas, Alaska. The purchasers
of the lime kiln were Daniel McLachland and Robert Caines of Port
Townsend. Ephraim LANGELL, a Nova Scotia quarryman was induced by
Caines to move to Orcas to work at Port Langdon. Like so many of the
islanders, Langell had been to the Cariboo. His sons, in time, became
the oldest residents of Orcas."

And it goes on with more about the lime kiln on Orcas.
