Hannah Centennial Book - Family Histories
Joseph and Ann (Sherdon Abbott)
Joseph and Ann Abbott came from Manitoulin Island, Ontario in 1886. A year later Joseph died. They had acquired a home in the vicinity of Hannah, so Ann remained. Their family consisted of William, Jane, Lucy Ann, Mary Elizabeth, Amos, John, Margaret, Charlotte Ann and Sarah. Ann lived at Hannah until about a year before her death when she moved to Langdon, ND, where her son, Amos, was living. Ann Abbott died in June of 1910.
Amos was born in 1867. He owned land west of Hannah for a time and was employed at McGruer's Drug Store in Langdon. Later he had his own drug store. After about 20 years in Langdon, he moved to Saskatchewan and then to Burdette, NY where he died in 1932 at the age of 65.
John Abbott remained at Hannah and owned land west of town. Margaret, better known as Maggie, married Thomas Spiker (see Thomas Spiker).
Sarah married Hugh McDowall in December of 1893. They farmed at Langdon all their lives. Their children were: Leonard Roy, Ella (Mrs. Hugh J. Work) and Ethel (Mrs. Walter Hart - Walter was her second husband; her first husband was Hugh McDowall). They also had a son (David) who died in infancy. Sarah died in 1942 (October 7) and Hugh in 1945.
William may (was) have been the William Abbott who married Rebecca before coming to Hannah in 1887 from Ontario. The rest of the family we have no information about. William and Rebecca came from Manitoulin Island, Ontario to Hannah in about 1887 with their children. Three years later William died and the family returned to Ontario. They had three children: Annie, Wes (Joseph Wesley) and Susan.
Annie married John H. McLean in 1900 (see John McLean).
Wes was born in 1883 on Manitoulin Island, Ontario and came with the family to Hannah when he was four years old. He returned to Ontario with his mother and later came to Langdon ND, where his uncle, Amos Abbott, had a drug store. He (Wes) married Letitia Brown from Harvey Center in 1910. He drove the star mail route from Langdon to Walhalla, ND, for about four years. Later he operated a dairy farm for about ten years and at the time of his death on February 15, 1943, he was employed at the Close Drug Store in Langdon. Letitia died August 22, 1959. They had no children.
Susan was married to James Carson. They first lived at Langdon and in 1937 were living in Devils Lake, ND.
John H. Mclean (married to Annie Abbott) was born September 15, 1875 at Singhampton, Ontario to Charles and Mary Jean (Fenwick) McLean. He came to Hannah in 1897 to work for James Kyle in his general merchandise store. On September 5, 1900, he married Annie Abbott, the daughter of William and Rebecca Abbott. She was born in 1880 at Manitoulin Island, Ontario and came to North Dakota as a child with her parents. In 1912 John was appointed postmaster at Hannah and Annie assisted him there until 1922. Then they opened a grocery store and operated that until 1936 when John's health began to fail and he was forced to retire. In the early fall they left for Shaunavon, Saskatchewan, to spend the winter with relatives. Annie died that winter on February 13, 1937 and John died August 4, 1940 in Shaunavon also. They had no children. While living in Hannah they attended the Methodist Church. John was a charter member of the Masonic Lodge at Hannah and Annie belonged to the Easter Star.

Obituary, uncited
Sheguiandah (handwritten 1906)
Mr. Ambrose Abbott, who has been ill for several months with internal abscesses, passed peacefully away last Sunday afternoon. Deceased was of a very kind sympathetic nature, ever willing to lend a helping hand, and as a consequence he was known and loved by hosts of friends and neighbors, who turned out on Monday afternoon to the funeral to pay a last tribute of respect to one whose ever cheerful face had made glad many a home and heart. The Rev. Mr. Prewer, who has been a regular attendant at the bed-side of deceased during his long and trying illness, held a brief service at the house taking for his text the words which had been Mr. Abbott's favorite verse of scripture, "In my Father's house are many mansions, if it were not so I would have told you." The assurance that he is now enjoying the promised blessing is a source of joy and comfort to his sorrowing wife and family who have the earnest sympathies of this community in their sorrow. Mr. Abbott, who was in his 72nd year was born in Halton County. In early life he worked at carpentering and on coming to the Manitoulin twenty-eight years ago he took up the present homestead and by diligence made a comfortable home. He took a deep interest in all public matters and was for years a member of the council of the municipality of Howland. The Council being in session Monday adjourned in order that hey might attend the funeral in a body. Mr. Abbott leaves a sorrowing widow, five sons, Daniel T. Abbott of Colby, Wis., U.S.A., Byron A. Abbott of Sault Ste. Marie, Wm. Abbott of Riverdale, C.A. Abbott, Emerson Abbot and D. A. Abbott of Sheguiandah Township, and one daughter, Mrs. F. Fields of Manitowaning. One daughter died in infancy.

Obituary, The Recorder, Gore Bay, July 8, 1915 -
Death of Jas. Anderson
On Monday evening, June 28th there passed away one of the old pioneers of Manitoulin, in the death of James Anderson at the advanced age of 86 years, 5 months, and 23 days.
Mr. Anderson was born at Portsoy, Banffshire, Scotland. He came to Canada in 1857, accompanied by Mrs. Anderson and two children. He settled in Pickering Township near the town of Whitby .
Thirty-five years ago he came to the Manitoulin Island and took up land in the Township of Campbell, where he raised a family of twelve boys and two girls of whom twelve still survive.
Mrs. Anderson, whose maiden name was Sophia Boyes, predeceased Mr. Anderson by nearly nineteen years.
The large gathering of old friends and others who met to show their last tokens of respect to their old pioneer, manifested the high esteem in which he was held by all.
The remains were interred in Grimsthorpe Cemetery between those of his wife and one son Peter who died in Kentucky, U.S.

The Little Current Story: Teachers earn $300. in 1903
By Sandy McGillivray,
Little Current Centennial Committee Chairman
School Inspector William Houston found the Little Current school quite satisfactory in his 1900 report, but suggested some improvements in the heating and ventilation systems. Junior pupils were judged just fair in reading and arithmetic-a condition he attributed to poor attendance.
At that time, non-qualified teachers could be granted permits by the inspector after reasonable efforts to obtain qualified teachers had been made. The editor of The Expositor snidely intimated that may local boards could not attract qualified teachers because of the starvation wages they offered. When a new inspector was appointed for East Algoma in 1903, at a salary of $1,500. per annum, it must have seemed an unheard of wage to local teachers earning in the $300. range. The payroll of the total staff in the Little Current school was only $968. in 1901 and that included a pay raise of $25. per annum. Because of the growth in population, it was found that two teachers were needed to assist principal R.D. Fleming. By 1902, with 235 names on the roll, it was felt that a fourth teacher was required and by the 1903-04 school year one was hired. Early in 1905 R.D. Fleming announced his resignation, since he intended to move west to Camrose, Alberta.
Average attendance at the school in April of 1904 was 185, with 224 on the roll. It was observed that a fifth room might be needed. With the high rate of absenteeism, it is little wonder appeals were made to parents to look into their childrens' attendance, as well as a call for strict enforcement of truancy laws.
Little Current ratepayers had opposed the idea of a Model School back in the '90s, but Gore Bay had taken it up and was receiving government grants for its upkeep. This enabled Gore Bay pupils to do high school and take teacher training right at home.
Some 'Fifth Book' work could be done in Little Current, but by 1905 eight Little Current students were at collegiates in various other towns. It was estimated that it cost the parents around $100 each for room, board, and fees. Other less affluent students could not afford to attend. A high school in Little Current was needed.
The public library continued receiving town and government grants under the supervision of a local board. In 1901, a typical year, the library operated on a budget of just under $130.-in the $5,000. to $10,000. range in 1990 dollars. By then the library possessed a collection of 1,189 volumes, with a circulation of 3,300 spread among 265 patrons.
William Dryburgh, William Becks, John Young and Dave McGilvery were among those who served on the library board in the early years of this century.
In the spring of 1900, Mr. H. Currie returned from Gore Bay and bought back the drug store from Mr. A. A. Ryley, who turned his whole attention to operating the saw mill and sash and door factory. In August, Mr. Currie moved his business to a new store next to Oliver Vincent's. He offered a mail order service and in November 1905, bought James J. Noble's fine house on Campbell street. He kept right up to date; as early as 1902 he was getting messages over his '

Early Pioneers of Gordon
Among the early pioneers of Gordon Township was the Beckerton family- James, Eliza and their children.
James, a quiet and gentle man was born in Norfolk, England, in March 1826. Eliza Fletcher, born in Belfast, Ireland, January 1830 was a sharp tongued, hard working girl. With their respective families, they emigrated to Canada and settled in Simcoe County near Barrie, Ontario.
They married, probably in 1850, and established a prosperous farmnear the town of Stayner. Here their nine children were born.
Sarah Ann - December 16, 1952, William John - July 20, 1854, Agnes Fletcher-January 22, 1856, Eliza Jane - January 20, 1858 (died August7, 1858), Robert - May 17, 1859, Henry (Harry), April 15, 1861,Wellington (Duke) February 1,1863; Emily-October 17, 1866; Thomas -June 23, 1874.
After the Manitoulin Island Treaty was signed in 1862, the government was able to offer land on Manitoulin for sale cheaply to encourage settlers. Gordon Township was surveyed in 1872 and soon after Jim Beckerton, his brother Roland, and Frank Royal, the fiancee of Jim's daughter Agnes, decided to investigate. They liked what they saw and bought quite a number of acres. After giving some thought to the horrendous amount of work that would be involved in clearing this heavily forrested, rocky land Roland changed his mind, sold his share to the others and headed back to the village of Ivy.
In 1879, Eliza and most of the family moved to Manitoulin, although Agnes remained at her job as tailoress and milliner in Stayner for a time. They lived in a log house built from timber cut to clear some land for planting crops. Later they built a large cement house on what was known later as Beckerton's Corner - on the road and on Lake Wolsey. Eliza, according to her grandson, "Young Harry", was a hard working lady and a tough boss. In the morning at breakfast she would go over the workto be done that day and assign jobs to everyone. She worked in the fields with Jim and left the household chores and cooking to Sarah Annand Emily. These girls had little formal education but could read and write. They were very skilled in cooking and needlework, but never married and rarely took time to even travel to town. They remained on the homestead all their lives and after the death of their parents they continued keeping house for their bachelor brothers. In time Bob and John took over small farms near the family farm. They were shy quiet men who never married and rarely left home.........
James and Eliza Beckerton remained on their farm in Gordon. Jim died February 26, 1906 in his 81st year and Eliza died 7 years later onMay 4, 1913 at the age of 83. Nothing remains of the Beckerton homestead except a stone pile near where the original cabin was, and a barn which was built much later, in Tom's time on the lot.........

Edward Armstrong, by Kathleen Trick
Edward Armstrong was born at Driffield England February 28, 1929
Eliza Jackson was born at Kilham England September 29, 1828
Their Family
1.John - the only one of their family born in England was born at Pickering, England May 22, 1852
2.George - was born at Shanty Bay near Barrie, Ontario December 16, 1857
3.Isabella (Bell) was born at Ors., Ontario September 21, 1864
4.Jackson (Manny) was born at Ors., Ontario October 28, 1866
5.Joseph was born at Ors., June 22, 1870
Four small children died in about 3 months time at Shanty Bay with diphtheria , they were Mary Jane, Hanna, Harriet and Charles.
When Mr. and Mrs. Armstrong left England for Canada their people made each of them a belt double thickness of canvas to be worn under their clothing. They sewed gold coins in a row beneath the layers, for their use in the new country.
They sailed for Canada and were six weeks crossing the ocean in a sailing ship.
They came to the Manitoulin with their family in the early eighteen seventies and settled on the west side of Silver Lake in Robinson Township on Lot 31 Concession 10. As time went on other members of their families bought adjoining lots to make a home on.
As a young man Manny had a bad experience with a bear. He and a friend John Kemp (his future brother-in-law) were out in the woods. The bear attacked Manny and his friend ran for help. There had been two bear cubs nearby.
Manny's back was badly clawed, he saved himself by playing dead.
The bear left then came back rolled him over and clawed him some more. Manny was very seriously injured and spent a long time in bed recovering.
When the Armstrongs came to the Manitoulin they brought most of their livestock, farming equipment and household furnishings with them.
They followed the same system as was the practice in England at that time. A larger building at one end for livestock feed and then small buildings in a row - one for each type of animal - horse stable, cow shed, sheep pen, pig pen and poultry pens.
The fields were all quite small surrounded by rail fences. Mr. Armstrong always liked to grow a field of peas each year.
Mr. Armstrong had been feeling ill and started out early one morning on horse back for Gore Bay to see a doctor.
The horse stumbled on rough ground and Mr. Armstrong was thrown off the horse and hit a stump and injured himself.
That evening some of the family saw something away across the field heading towards them. It was the horse dragging Mr. Armstrong through the snow coming towards home.
The horse would go a short distance and stop for a rest and then on again.
Mr. Armstrong took pneumonia from his illness and exposure in the cold and snow and died.
Mrs. Armstrong was blind and lived the rest of her life with her daughter Bell (Mrs. John Kemp)
I would like to acknowledge and thank those who helped me gather information, Ivan Trick, Kathleen Armstrong and my husband Reece Trick

Mr. Benjamin Bock is Dead
Providence Bay
Word of the sudden death of the late Benjamin Bock came early on Monday afternoon to this village; and it seemed impossible to believe the tidings.
Mr. Bock had been in the best of health on the forenoon of that day, being busy in assisting to get his launch ready for removal to Providence Bay. He ate a hearty dinner and went up to the office at Mr. Riching's to post some letters. He sat down on a lounge, and upon inquirie s after his health, said he felt a little tired, and in answer to further inquiries stated that he would be feeling better toward night. In a few minutes he slipped off the lounge and almost immediately the spark of life had fled.
Mr. Bock was one of the early pioneers of Manitoulin and was universalla (sic) esteemed.

Murder on the Manitoulin - 1877, by George Skippen
When the government began surveying, and advertising the Manitoulin Island for settlers in the mid-1860's, the price was very attractive, and many people came from Southern Ontario to make a new life for themselves.
My story takes place in part of Tehkummah Township, in the area which is known as the "five corners", on lots 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, and 31, Con. B. The north half of these lots were owned at the time by the following: Lot 26 - Strachan: Lots 27 and 28 - Amer: Lot 29 - Bryan: Lot 30 - Boyer: Lot 31 - Cowan. The south half of these lots were owned by: Lots 26, 27, 28, 29 - Porter; and Lots 30 and 31 - Sloan. In this small pioneer farming community a tragic event occurred which would not be forgotten for years to come.
George Archibald Amer and his family occupied Lot 28, and the adjoining Lot 29 was occupied by William Bryan and his family. The Amer family consisted of George, his wife Annie, a son Laban, and a daughter; a hired girl Ellen Sim, and a hired man Samuel Blanchard. The Bryan family at that time included William, his wife Eleanor, and sons Charles and Arthur; (five others having already left home.) The Amers were quite well to do and able to afford hired help; - comparison, the Bryans were very poor.
These people had been homesteading about two to three years. Land was being cleared, fields were being fenced - not well enough at times and some had no fences at all, which created most of the trouble between these two neighbours. George Amer, in his mid-forties, was a large, stout and muscular man. Before coming to the Manitoulin he had been a policeman in Owen Sound. He got along fairly well with neighbours who were not too close, but at times he had a tendency to run roughshod over them. The Bryans, being the closest neighbours, he quarreled with most. Amer's son Laban was much different than his father; being of slight build, and of a meek disposition, he was apparently quite contented to do as he was directed.
William Bryan, in his late fifties, was in stature the very opposite to George Amer, and weighed only about 130 pounds. He had gray hair and a beard, and was known as "Old Man Bryan". He also had a bad disposition, and at times was prone to quarrel with his neighbours. But he considered himself a God-fearing man, and disliked Amer's habit of working on Sunday. Bryan's son Charles was larger than his father, and had some of his father's quarrelsome nature.
That spring of 1877 Bryan had completed clearing a field next to Amers, and had planted grain in it. George Amer also had fields cleared close by in which grain was planted. Both men did not have their line fences completed. As a result Bryan's oxen were getting into Amer's field from time to time, and Amer's horses were getting into Bryan's grain. The two sons, Charles Bryan and Laban Amer had been fighting, which did not help the relationship between the families; - and neither did some neighbours who kept telling tales back and forth to fuel their dislike for one another!
On June 26, 1877, the bad feeling between the two families came to a head. Bryan's found Amer's horses in their grain field, so leading the horses up to their house, they tied them up. That evening as George Amer was going to bed, he sent Laban out to bring the horses in for the night. Laban eventually found them tied to the fence at the Bryan house. It was apparently at this time that the Bryan's put their plan in motion -: Charles chased Laban and sent him home without the horses. When Laban told his father what had happened Amer became angry and decided to teach the Bryans a lesson. Arming himself with a police truncheon and giving Laban a pistol - both of which he had brought from Owen Sound, they started off to reclaim their horses. It being a bright moonlight night, Wm. Bryan and his son Charles watched them coming up the road, and stayed out of sight in the shadows of the fence where the horses were tied. Being armed with hardwood sticks, the Bryans confronted the Amers as they approached the horses. The fight that ensued was vicious. Close neighbours, the Porters, were awakened by the noise, and could hear the sticks striking on wood and skulls. In a short time they heard Amer order his son to shoot, which he did, shooting Charles in the head, and Bryan Sr. in the neck. It was after this that the Porters heard more sticks striking, and Old Man Bryan, as he was referred to, saying - "Stop! - Please! - we are murdered enough!" Amer then ordered his son Laban to untie the horses and take them home. Amer also left and went to a neighbour, Samuel Sloan. After getting him up, he had to tell who he was, as he was so battered and drenched in blood. He asked Sloan to go to the Bryans as they had had a "fearful fight!"
In the meantime, Mrs. Bryan, who had been watching the fight from within the house, came out with her eight year old son Arthur, and dragged the two men into the house. They placed them on the floor on either side of the stove, and removed their "cloth boots". One can only imagine how terrified she and the little boy must have been! When she asked little Arthur to go and get the Porters, he said "Oh no, Mother, I cannot - you holler! Then Mrs. Bryan ran to the Porters, calling "Murder - Murder!" as she ran. The Porters agreed to go, but were a bit reluctant to by themselves. So Porter with his two sons, joined with neighbours Samuel Sloan and Benjamin Boyer, and together they went to Bryans to see what they could do. The only means of light in the Bryan house was to light a sliver of wood from the stove so one of the men went back home and brought a lamp to see the wounded men. When the men arrived Charles - who had been shot in the forehead about the right eye - was unable to speak; but Wm. Bryan raised his hand to where he had been shot in the neck and said, "If they had not shot Charlie and me, we would have cleared the field of them!"
When George Amer arrived at his home, he wakened the hired man and directed him to go to Manitowaning and get the Doctor to tend to his wounds. When Dr. Wm. Francis arrived in the morning he went directly to Amer's home where he stitched and bandaged Amer's wounds. He was then told of the fight with the Bryans, and of course went to the Bryans place where he found them both on the floor. Charles was still unable to speak, and his father had lapsed into unconsciousness. After examining them, Dr. Francis considered them both to be hopeless cases. Charles died later on in the day, and Wm. Bryan died two days later on Friday, June 29.
Mr. J.C. Phipps, Mr. W. Haner, and Mr. Thos. Gorley were the Justices of the Peace in Manitowaning, and Mrs. Charles Boyd was J.P. and acting Conastable from Tehkummah. On Saturday, June 30, Mr. J.C. Phipps, J.P., began taking depositions from the following witnesses, who would later testify at the trial: Charles Boyd; Andrew Porter (signed with an X): Andrew Porter Jr.; John Porter; Benjamin Boyer; Samuel Sloan (signed with an X); Arthur Bryan, (8 years old); Samuel Blanchard; Ellen Sim. I might add here that when Constable Boyd went to get George Amer and son Laban, he found that Laban had disappeared. Word of his disappearance was sent to Sault Ste. Marie, and "Reward" notices were printed, but before they go to the Manitoulin Laban Amer had given himself up.
On September 11, 1877, the trial date was set for October 2, 1877, to try George Amer and Laban Amer for the murder of William Bryan and Charles Bryan, to be held at Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. On October 2, court was opened with all its pomp and ceremony. A total of twenty-three was picked for the Grand Jury. A total of forty-eight persons were listed for the Petit Jury, from which twelve were chosen. The Honourable Walter McCrea was the presiding Judge, Mr. John Hamilton was Crown Attorney, and Mr. M.C. Cameron was Queen's Council for the Amers. Because of technicalities, the actual trial did not begin until October 6. During the trial depositions of the witnesses were heard, and some were recalled and questioned by the court. Also during the trial Mr. W. Sproat had to retract some of the statements he had made while going to the Sault on the boat. One example was "

Recalls Early Days in Billings Tp.
In the fall of 1875 Mr. Edward Foster and his son John, accompanied by Alexander Campbell, came to the Manitoulin to look for land. They landed at Kagawong and after visiting some former neighbors from Allandale, who had preceded them to the Island they took a look about for suitable lots for farms. Finding what they thought would suit them, they took a boat back to their home, John stopping at Manitowaning, visited the Land Office to locate the ltos. He secured Lot 16 in the 11th concession of Billings, where George Foster now lives, and returned to Billings, built a shanty and did some clearing of land before going to his home in Allendale.
In the spring of 1876 he loaded a car with a yoke of oxen and other stock, some implements and other necessities, and accompanied by his younger brother Richard and a hired man they sailed form Collingwood on the "Northern Belle" which was on her second trip of the season. Black Peter as he was commonly called, was the Captain and Bob Foote was First Mate. The fare was three dollars. Money being scarce people did not mind hardships, so the men generally travelled deck fare. Duncan McLeod and Sandy McLarty were also passangers on this trip. They settled in the Ice Lake district. The Northern Belle was a small boat but a good seat boat. She docked safely at Kagawong on the 10 of April. Mother nature was kind and welcomed us with beautiful May weather. We lost no time and put in what crop we could.
At that time Robert Henry had a saw-mill and grist-mill on the site where Carter's Mill now stands. There were several families near Kagawong then including the Loves, Irelands, Wilsons, Jos. Hunt, most of them from King Township. There was a Church and School House at Kagawong, built by Mr. Henry.
During the year 1877 Geo. Woods, John Munro, John Todd, Wm. Bailie and John Foster opened up the present trunk road form the Tenth to the Fourteenth concessions. Mr. Foster was the first resident to drive a wagon and yoke of oxen over this road in the summer of 1877. He built a large log house and the following summer his father, mother and family moved up from Allandale. More buildings were necessary and were built of logs. With much hard and tedious labour the shingles were split by hand to cover the roofs, and some of the lumber was sawed with a whipsaw. After some clearing they found the soil excellent but very stoney. Mr. Foster was married in the year 1884 by the Rev. Mr. Tooke, of Gore Bay to Miss Blanche Martin, of Patterson, Ont. Mrs. Foster's father was drowned in 1882, when the Asia went down with all on board. His family bought Lot 18 on the 11th Concession of Billings, and lived there for a few years. John Foster bought Lot 24, Concession 8, Billings, which was then virgin forest, however both he and his wife were blessed with good health and by dint of hard work he soon cleared a large portion of it and put up some buildings. The land was good and he soon had a large crop and things became easier.
During the spring of 1886 Mr. Foster's mother died and she was joined by her husband in 1901. They left four girls: Mrs. Hunt, of Detroit, Mrs. M. Bailie, of Billings, Mrs. Wm. Irelend who now lives in Billings, and Mrs. Sarah Johnston, of Memphis, Tenn., also five boys, George and john of Billings, Dr. Edwin, of Vancouver, Richard of Rhinlander, Wis., and Fred of Memphis.
The first school house in Billings was built in 1883 which also served as a church. It was made of logs. Miss Carrie Head of Big Lake was the first teacher at a salary of $250.00. She afterwards became Mrs. Hiram Pearson of Long Bay. The first entry in the school cash book was a water pail, dipper, and broom, 60 cents. Later in 1902 a frame school house was built on the 21st sideroad between the 8th and 10th Concessions. In 1902 Mr. Phenix had the honour of being the first teacher in the new structure, which is still in use. It also was used as a church till 1912 when a cement church was built. Mr. John Caddle, of Mindemoya, was the builder and John Foster was a Trustee both in the old and the new schools, and a member of the new church. Mrs. Foster was an active member of the Woman's Institute, being the first President, when it was organized by Miss Maddock. Mr. Foster too several degrees on the L.O.L. 1931.
In the year 1921 Mr. Foster retired and moved to Kagawong village where he and his wife now reside. They have three sons farming in Alberta, George Bert and Ward, and Len at Kagawong. Their five daughters are: Mrs. Fred Green Mrs. Carroll, Mrs. Wm. Moss, Mrs. S. Hunt, Miss Justine and Miss Aleada. Mr. foster is in his 74th year. He has seen the township of Billings transformed from a wilderness to an up to date farming community, with good roads, schools, telephone and hydro electric lights and power.
