Memorable Manitobans: Andrew Wilson (c1849-1909)

Farmer, sportsman.

He came to Manitoba from Lanark County, Ontario, about 1891. He was married and had five children. He was a successful farmer, located two miles north of Reston on the Pipestone River. He invested in some valuable land in the Goose Lake district, west of Saskatoon. He was on the Council of the Reston district for many years, and was interested in all municipal affairs. He was first President of the curling club of Reston, and was active in curling circles in Manitoba. He died at Winnipeg on 24 February 1909.
