Memorable Manitobans: Edward Ariss (1870-1913)

Farmer.

Born near Guelph, Ontario on 27 July 1870, he left public school at 16 to help on the family farm until 1897 when he came to Manitoba and worked for three years as a hired farm hand. He eventually purchased 320 acres of farm land near Isabella, where he resided for the remainder of his life. He kept cattle, horses, hogs and fowl. On 21 March 1906 he married Sarah J. Allingham at Orrwold. He died abruptly on 10 March 1913 and was buried in the Arrow River Cemetery.
