Memorable Manitobans: Hugh McLean (1881-?)


Born at Shoal Lake in 1881, son of Allan McLean and Catherine “Kate” McDonald (?-1882), he quit school at the age of 14 to work on the family farm until he was 26, when his father gifted him with 160 acres of farmland, to which he added 320 acres. He raised grain and kept cattle, horses and other livestock. On 20 June 1906, he married Marion H. Simpson (?-?) and they had two children: Frank McLean and Mary McLean. He was a member of the IOOF.
