Name of creator
Arthur E. Bate, 1872-1940, was born in Detroit, Michigan, USA and raised in Ontario. He came west in 1892 and worked near Fort Steele, British Columbia, and then on southern Alberta cattle ranches. In 1898 he married Laura E. Waters, ?-1942, and after several moves they settled on Frenchman River in southwestern Saskatchewan near Shaunavon. The Bates had seven children, Joe, Jim, Abram, Bill, Bessie (White), John, and Tom. Abram and John took over the ranch from their father in 1937. The Bates were Mormons.
