    • In the year 1891, they and their three young sons, Frederick William (age 7), Norman and Roy came from Port Hope to Moosomin, Saskatchewan by train. They brought with them a team of horses and a Jersey cow. The trip took a week and Fred told how when he got bored on the train, and when the train stopped for fuel and water, he would get out and run along beside it. Also ran up to the stock car to feed the animals and tend to their needs with his Dad's help. Swansons Delivery took them to their first home. They spent the night at Willen, and went on the next to day to Welwyn, Sask where they rented the Brundette farm. It was in the spring of the year when they arrived and they planted twenty-one bushels of wheat. There was a house on the farm for them to live in. That fall, when they harvested their crop, they had twenty-two bushels of wheat. To earn money for food for his family Albert followed the threshing machines and measured the grain into bushel measures. They stayed on this farm for four years and then moved to the McAuley district in Manitoba.

      To Moosomin from Port Hope, Ontario on train in spring. On to Welwyn next day. Put May here because it was spring and they were in the 1891 census still in Ontario (taken April 14th). Book states "Welwyn, Sask" but at that time Welwyn was part of NWT.

    • Homestead applied for at Birtle ca 1895. For the grand price of $10.00. One of the last homesteads in the area.

      Albert William Mallett decided to apply for a homestead, so he hitched up the buggy and he and Mary Jane [Corden] drove to Birtle to apply and receive one of the last homestead in the district, for the price of $10.00.

      There was no home on the homestead, so the first winter their home was a cave, or rather two caves side by side - one for the animals and one for the family - dug into the hill side. The next couple of years was spent enlarging the stable dividing half for a home - the rest for the animals. It wasn't until four years had passed that a house was built.

      Have picture of family in front of sod home ca 1899.

    Albert William Mallett and Mary Jane (Corden) Mallett applied for a homestead and received, for the price of $10, one of the last homesteads in the district. This homestead was at 32-14-29, McAuley, Manitoba, Canada.

    There was no home on the homestead, so for the first winter their home was a cave, or rather two caves side by side (one for the animals and one for the family) dug into the hillside. The next couple of years was spent enlarging the stable (made of sod) dividing half for a home and half for the animals. This is a picture of the family in front of that sod home. It wasn't until four years had passed that a house was built.
