Hi there. I am the grandaughter of Cason Mcquaker. William was my great grandfather, and was born in Scotland in 1870. After William came to Canada, he lived in Pinewood, ON, just a little west of Stratton. His father came and helped him and another son farm for a year, then returned to Scotland and never came back. William met Annie Ferguson, also from Scotland in Winnipeg Manitoba. He was 27 years her senior, and they married when she was about 16. Annie was born in 1897. William's homestead was in Pattullo (not Patulla) township, then he later moved to Emo. My grandfather Carson, (my dad Peter's dad) still lives on the McQuaker homestead along with his youngest son Bud (Carson Jr.)I don't know about this selling to the hoglands story! My Grandfather Cason was born in Pinewood in 1920. He married Iris Pearson (not Peterson) born in 1925. (Norman, who died in action's middle name is Angus, not Agnes.)William died in 1955, the year my father was born, not 1975. He was 85. If he had died in 1975 he would have been 105 years old! Anyways, hope this helps you clear a few things up!
