Biographical history

Adam Armey, 1878-1959, was born in Napanee, Indiana, USA where he was educated and received a teaching certificate. In 1900, he emigrated to Stavely, Alberta and worked at the Stewart Brothers Saw Mill in the Porcupine Hills. He homesteaded near Nanton in 1906, cutting and hauling logs to the mill in winter. He raised horses and cattle as well as farming grain. In 1918, he married Mrs. Lucy Kewley and they had two children, Harcourt "Cork" and Aileen (Scott), as well as a son from Lucy's previous marriage. The family moved to Vancouver in 1938. Adam served in many organizations. He was the first secretary of the American Society of Equity, Broadway Local Union No. 2549 in 1906 and later served as president. He was also involved in a number of organizations in the Broadway District. Harcourt served with the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry in the Korean War and in Germany in the 1950s.
