PIONEER SETTLERS IN AND AROUND SASKATOON

(A pioneer settler is defined as one coming in by trail and before the Railway in 1890)
l880-J. F. Clark, of Clark's Crossing, and the present Clarkboro, where the
         C.N.R. main line crosses the South Saskatchewan.
	
1882-Named in the diary of John N. Lake as with him at the exploration
         and selection of the site for the Colony, and for its town :-
Clark, John (father of Frank and Charles).
Eby, James M.
Grant, G. W.
Goodwin, H. W.
Hamilton, James (the father).
Hamilton, Robert (the son).
Latham, Peter.
			   
1883-The names of the following appear in the Minutes of the Temperance
	 Colony Pioneers' Society as members without having been entered as
	 voted into the Society. The presumption is that they are charter
	 members from its inception on March 1st, 1884, and therefore came
	 into the settlement during the previous summer (1883). However, as
	 all the minutes are not embodied in the Minute Book, there is some
	 doubt in the case of names only appearing in and after May, 1884.
	 When there is substantial corroborative evidence of their coming in
	 in 1883 the names are placed here as charter members.
