Saskatchewan Town: High Tor
Surname: Rhodes, Walsh
Comments:

My mother, Gwen Rhodes grew up on a farm in High Tor and attended a one-room school-house until she was about 9 yrs old. Rumor says that one of my great, great, great grandmothers was responsible for naming the town. My mom's dad's last name was Rhodes and my mom's mom's last name was Walsh. Is there anyone that remembers either family? I know my mom and my mom's mom attended a reunion at the one room school-house back 1984. In 184 the farm they used to own was still standing, but appeared to be deserted and been used as a grainery at some point. The roof of the barn was gone, but the rest of it was still there.
