Biographical history

Ernest Austin Daggett, 1867-1936 and his wife the former Alberta Grace Watt, ?-1957, were both born on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick. Ernest migrated to Alberta in 1892 and established a homestead in the Blackie district. Ernest and Alberta were married in 1898. Ernest became manager of the Lineham Lumber Co., which had timber operations west of Turner Valley and mills in Okotoks and High River. The Daggetts sold their Blackie property and purchased a ranch at Lineham and a house in the village of Okotoks. They moved to Millarville in 1920. Ernest was active in community affairs, and served as Secretary-Treasurer of Local Improvement District 10-T-4 and as a member of Okotoks Town Council. The Daggetts' only child, Mary (1904-1981, Mrs. Tom Wild) taught school at Lineham, Cochrane, Pine Creek, and Okotoks
