Name of creator
William (1848-1925) and Rebecca (1852-1919) Hern traveled west by train from Ontario in 1882 with their three sons, Lorne (1879-1954), Sidney (1877-1918) and Wesley (1876-1940). After arriving in Brandon, Manitoba, the family traveled by wagon to Hamiota where they settled to farm. The couple had four more children in Hamiota: David (1883-1963), Samuel (1885-1968), Gilbert (?-1918) and one daughter who died in infancy. Lorne, Wesley, David and Sam moved to Togo, Saskatchewan to homestead as young men. Sidney was killed in France during the First World War. Gilbert remained on the family farm with his parents until his death in 1918. In 1919, David returned to Hamiota to farm the family homestead with his wife Bessie (1893-1981). The couple had four children: David, Robert, Yvonne and Dorothy. David and Bessie retired to Rivers, Manitoba in 1961 and sold the farm. David passed away in 1963 and Bessie in 1981.
Donated to the Daly House Museum by P.A. Hern of Togo, Saskatchewan in 1986.
