Historia

Nicholas Andress came from the United States to Alberta in 1912, traveling over the Edson Trail that year with his wife and five children: William, Ellis, Charles, Ellen and Elmer. They were accompanied by Elmer's wife Martha and his children (Merle, Ivah, and Laverne); Will's wife, Jessie and 2 daughters (Theresa and Nada); the Rockefeller family, who were some relation; and Allen Petty. Martha kept a diary of the journey which started on August 29th in Edson, and ended at Grande Prairie on October 7.

Nicholas, Charles and Ellis took homesteads beside Dead Horse Creek (later renamed Crystal Creek) in Township 71, Range 4, about 10 miles east of Grande Prairie, and Elmer and William filed in the same area in 1914.

In 1920, the Rockefeller family returned to the USA. Mrs. Andress passed away in 1920 and then Charles Andress, the third son, lost his life in a sawmill accident. As the children married, they moved away, and in 1926 Nicholas returned to the United States with his sons Ellis and Elmer and their families. Only Allen Petty remained in this area. He passed away in 1954.
