Excerpt from And So;;; Ninette, 1879-1919

Having decided on their homesteads it now behoved the Orillia gentlemen to return home for their families and settlers effects. At least that's what two of them thought. But not Mr. Davies. He waited in Winnipeg until his family joined him and then settled them at Portage La Prairie while he spent the winter cutting cordwood for the railroad. In the spring the family moved to Brandon and that summer of '82 Mr. Davies worked on the construction of the C. P. R.

Meanwhile what of Mr. Mackie? As a young man he had found employment in his native Scotland hauling coal from a mine with a cart and horse. Hoping to improve his' circumstances he had emi grated to the Orillia area. Here he earned his living doing carpen try work. But apparently he wasn't opposed to trying anything. When his family joined him in Winnipeg, he installed Mrs. Mackie in the boarding house, and taking his sons Milt and Drew with him,' he went east to Shelley to work on the railroad. Mr. Mackie and Milt cut ties but Drew. Who was in his early teens, had to find employment as handy man around the camp. That winter, Mr. Mackie and Milt took to the bush where there was lots of work to be had getting out logs.
