  • Notes 
    • Frederick William Constable:


      Fred loved the outdoors and ventured to Manitoba to trap and mine when he was in his teens.
      After his brother, Eddie, was discharged from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in 1919,
      he joined Fred in Flin Flon and they trapped and worked the mines.

      In the summer they would canoe the water ways to patrol the area as they were fire wardens for the government. In the winter, they would use their dog teams to patrol the Fire and trap lines.

      They trapped animals all winter and sold the hides for money and then would fish all summer.

      Fred married Evelyn Brydges in 1926. Evelyn's brother was an experienced dog sledder and they started breeding their own special breed of dogs to run faster and better on the snow.

      Fred and Evelyn owned a piece of property in Cranberry Portage, Manitoba and Fred
      became a hunting and fishing guide. They enlarged their place and tourists came from all over the country to fish.

      Their only child, Ivale was born in 1934.

      Fred won 1952 Chevrolet auto for catching the largest trout in a fishing derby-
      he had never driven a car and so he learned!!
      When they weren't running their tourist lodge, Fred worked in Flin Flon as a
      construction and welding person, building large buildings and welding large girders in place.

      Ivale and her children continue to run Lakeside Lodge, Cranberry Portage, Manitoba, Canada.
