    Notes 
    • "Norman, sixth child of Arthur and Mary, was born on August 31, 1895, at Galt, Ontario but grew up in Bosanquet county, where his father farmed. He left school at an early age to work on small farms near home, but in 1910, succombed to the romance of the Canadian west. At the age of 15, he left, Ontario to find a place for himself with his aunt and uncle - Alex and Mary Keachie, who were farming in Manitoba, near Petrel. Under his uncle's guidance, Norman learned the prairie method of operating a large acreage, and eventually became, in Western terms, a 'hired man'.
      When war broke out in 1914, Norman tried to enlist, but was rejected, and to salve his pride, he left Manitoba to spend the winter with his family on the homestead at Codette, Saskatchewan. While there, he presented himself to the recruiting officer at Prince Albert, was accepted and returned to Maintoba to take basic training at Camp Hughes (presently Shilo).

      Norman served overseas in France as a dispatch runner between the lines, and later as a transport driver. He returned to Canada in 1919, again to work on the farm.

      On June 18, 1924, Norman married Jennie Sheridan (known to all as Jane), and they worked out as a couple at Hallboro (near Neepawa), Decker, Lavinia, then finally settled at Hamiota.

      Norman and Jane moved to Victoria, B.C. in 1956, and it was there that Norman died... He is buried in the Hamiota cemetery.

      Norman will be remembered for his friendly nature, for the plesure his music gave others, and his accessibility as a partner at cards, whether it was 500, euchre, hearts or cribbage." - Dale Tales, 1980, p.32
