Lachlin McKinnon: the passing of another pioneer

Lachlin McKinnon
Lachlin McKinnon
June 9, 1948, Alberta and the West lost another of its well-known and highly respected pioneers, Lachlin McKinnon at the age of 83 passed away at home in Calgary.
He was one of the early group of pioneers who came from Ontario in the early '80s in search of opportunity in a new and undeveloped land.
He was born in Durham, Grey County, Ont. in 1865 and at the age of 21, after corresponding with school chums who had preceded him, he went west over the newly completed Canadian Pacific Railway line arriving at Calgary in the spring of 1886.
In 1883 Mr. McKinnon married Miss Sarah Whitney who had come west with her family in 1892 from Collingwood, Ont., to settle in the Langdon district.
Soon after the formation of the company Mr. and Mrs. McKinnon retired from active ranching and farming and moved with their younger children to Calgary. Charles, the eldest son, became active manager. Lachlin McKinnon's interest in agriculture matters, however, did not diminish with his retirement. For many years he was a director of the Western Stock Growers' Association, and was a member of the Calgary Board of Trade. He was a one-time president of the Southern Alberta Pioneers' and Oldtimers' Association. Every cattle sales event or agricultural field day urged his attendance and despite a long siege of stubborn illness he was seen by hundreds of his friends at the 1948 Calgary Bull Sale.
Lachlin McKinnon has passed to his reward. He was a part of the West's early development and he has left a large progressive family to carry on where he has stepped aside. c
