Memorable Manitobans: Robert Hay (1838-1913)

Farmer, municipal official.

Born at Wick, Scotland on 10 September 1838, he came to Canada and settled for a time at Edmonton. About 1873, he moved to Gonor where he farmed. He was the first Reeve of the Rural Municipality of St. Clements (1888-1904), and was a candidate for St. Clements in the 1886 provincial general election. He died at his home on 22 January 1913 and was buried in the Little Britain Cemetery. He was survived by a widow Christina McDonald and three sons: Rev. R. J. Hay, John Hay, and Thomas Hay.
