Dates of existence
Frederick McNeil came to Saskatchewan around 1901 following in the wake of his uncle Donald McNeil who arrived about 1882 to homestead near Carlyle, Saskatchewan. His brother James was employed in a private bank in Downington, Michigan in 1899. Their brother Charles had died in 1898. Malcolm and Catherine McNeil supported themselves with a small market garden in Walkerton, Ontario. Frederick McNeil worked for the Government of Canada building bridges in Manitoba and the North-West Territories from 1902 to 1904.
McNeil first filed for a homestead in 1903 which he later abandoned as the land was too stony. He then filed on June 30, 1904 for the SW-6-10-13W2nd and obtained his patent on 10 September 1907. He assisted his brother and parents in filing for the adjecent NE and SW quarter sections. He continued to work for several months off the farm in order to maintain his financial commitments. The family homesteaded near Rainton (Worcester), Saskatchewan. Supplemental information on the descendants of Daniel McNeil can be found in records of the McNeil family.
