Pre-Colony History:  

Family Information:  

Job in Colony: In October 1931 he and Archibald Ogden made a trip to Kurthwood to remove the windows from a building which the colony had purchased.

In 1934 he was busy curing and smoking pork that was coming in from neighboring farms.

In 1935 he served as both the foreman and helper in the garage, and even then couldn't open every day because he also served as the "torch bearer" at the bakery on bake days. In July he and Lionel Crossland worked on the ice truck all night to get it in running condition for the next day's ice delivery.

In 1936 he was still helping out at the bakery which was managed by Florine Peecher by doing much of the heavy work.
