Name of creator
Orville (‘Orie’) Waddell was born 10 Oct 1890 to Charles and ? Waddell in Abalene, Kansas, USA. He married Mary Rebecca (Beckie) Halderman on 1 Nov 1892 in Kansas, Missouri. They had one son – Otis.
Orville left for Canada in 1902 after hearing of land for sale at a remarkably low price. Upon arriving in Edmonton, Orville found work on a boat hauling coal up and down the North Saskatchewan River. Beckie and Otis arrived in Edmonton the following year. Orville homesteaded in the Pine Ridge area (near Heatherdown, Whitecourt, Alberta). Orville Waddell died 30 Nov 1925 and is buried at the Heatherdown Cemetery in Whitecourt, AB.
Elinor Waddell is the granddaughter-in-law to Orville Waddell.
