Name of creator
Ann Macklin was born at the Kathryn Prittie Hospital in Grande Prairie in 1917, the daughter of David and Annie Philips-Roberts.
Her father had homesteaded in the Clairmont area after coming over the Edson Trail in 1912. David Philips Roberts was the only son of Mr. E.M.Roberts, J.P. in Talsarnau, Merionethshire, Wales. Born in 1877, he had spent some years in Austrailia before coming to the Peace Country. His homestead was called Trevor Farm. He also worked out on a road gang building the Dunvegan Hill road ca. 1914.
In 1916, his fiancé Annie Roberts, a nurse and matron of a hospital in Wales, came to join him and the couple was married in Grouard on January 26, 1916. They spent their honeymoon traveling to Clairmont in a caboose pulled by two oxen.
Growing up on the homestead, Ann attended Clairmont school, then high school and business college in Grande Prairie. An only child, she enjoyed all her pets as well domestic animals on the farm, recording each one by name.
After the war Ann married Victor Macklin, son of I.V. Macklin (the first school teacher in Grande Prairie). David Philips-Roberts passed away Feb. 23, 1948 and is buried in the Grande Prairie Cemetery. Annie Roberts moved to Ottawa where Ann and Victor lived and where the couple resided for their entire married life. Ann Macklin passed away in 2003.
