Sylvester, better known as Vet, filed on his land in 1895. He homesteaded and lived there until his passing in 1956. In 1910 he married Grace Johnson of the Canyon district. They had three children: Robert, Hubert and Hazel. Robert died in 1934, due to a sawmill accident. Hubert, better known as Pete, worked around the country for years and in the early 40's went to work for D.G. Whitney. While there he married Eileen Deagle of the Consort district. They had three children, finally moved to Edmonton where they still reside. Hazel lived on the homestead quarter. During Vet's life, he cleared his land mostly by axe. He was known to be one of the best axemen in the country, and he sold wood in Lacombe for $1.50 per load. He raised pigs and horses, trading horses with most anyone, and also let cattle out on shares. One of his many hobbies was quilt making. After his first wife Gracie died, he raised his family by himself doing all his own work, with help from the children as they were old enought. He married again in 1938, to Mrs. Clara Huston of Consort. They had thirteen wonderful years together, during which time they went to many sales around the country and did a bit of travelling.
