From "The Families of the Pickford Area":
It was back in 1878 when the little village of Pickford had its first baby. A son, Alexander, was born to Mr. and Mrs. James Clegg on March 7, 1878. Most of the older people of the Pickford area believe that Mr. Clegg was the first white baby to be born in Pickford.

There were only a few people living in Pickford at that time. It was primarily a farming community just as it is today. Only a few people who had occupations other then farming lived in town. There was a small store to serve the people. There was also a feed mill for the farmers.

Mr. Clegg was born and lived in Pickford most of his lifetime. Mr. Clegg had four brothers and two sisters. In 1904 he married Ida Kennedy. In 1905 a son, Otto, was born to Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Clegg. Not long after that a daughter, Ruth was born and later another daughter, Lois.

One occupation of Mr. Clegg's was to work in the newly constructed Rockview Fire Tower. He was the first to work there, which was in 1924. Then for three years he worked for the Conservation Department in Sault Ste. Marie. He retired in 1949 after twenty-five years of service. On July 5, 1959, Alexander Clegg passed away and was buried in Bethel cemetery.
