Memorable Manitobans: Clifford Reginald McFadden (1903-1980)

Merchant, historian.

Born on the family farm near Methven on 14 March 1903, youngest son of William and Mary McFadden. (His paternal grandparents, James and Ellen McFadden, came from Cookstown, Ontario in 1882 and bought land one and a quarter miles north of the site which later became the village of Methven, the last building thereon being torn down in 1970. His maternal grandparents, Richard and Jemima Kinley, came from West Cape, Prince Edward Island in 1879 and were among the original settlers of the Souris City area.) He was employed in the Toy Department of the T. Eaton Company for many years. He died at Winnipeg on 13 July 1980 and was buried in the Methven Cemetery.
