History: Mr. and Mrs. George Paterson

Reprinted from the September 1950 issue of Canadian Cattlemen

Mr. and Mrs. George Paterson
By T. L. Shepherd, West Plains, Sask.

‘To most of us, the words “Old Timer” bring to mind an wrinkled old lady, or a man with a long white beard. Neither George Paterson nor his charming wife fit into that class. But when a man has lived 60 of his sixty-three years in the same yard, that should rate him as an Old Timer. And Mrs. Paterson has lived fifty-one years within ten miles of the place, but of course she came to the district as a very young girl, being one of several daughters of the late James A. Gaff… Always ready to see the brighter side of life, both the Patersons make welcome additions to any dance, card party or social event of any kind.’
