Alexander (Sandy), and Donald Cameron came to homestead in the Glen Leslie area in 1912. They were from the Fort William area in the Scottish highlands, their home croft being Glen Nevis. Sandy was born circa 1880, Donald circa 1882. Around 1907, they left Scotland for Winnipeg, working there and in southern Alberta and British Columbia before coming to Glen Leslie, where they lived for the remainder of their lives.

The brothers ran a stopping place for travelers on the Edson Trail which ran near their land, and from 1919-1929, ran a feed-grinding outfit. Sandy disappeared on a trip to Edmonton in 1954, and was presumed dead, Donald died at the homestead in 1962.
