Memorable Manitobans: Francis H. Carscadden (1886-?)


Born in Durham County, Ontario on 3 March 1886, son of George E. Carscadden and Anna Smith, the family moved to Manitoba in 1887, to a 320-acre farm in Township 11, Range 26 near Virden. His father died in 1896 so, when he was 16 years old, he left school to help run the farm, which he took over when he reached majority. On 8 January 1908, he married Helen McGregor at Hargrave, Manitoba. He was a member of the IOOF and the Episcopal Church.
