I would like to hear from anyone who may have information about Harvey McCager Mustard who ran a guiding and outfitters operation in Mountain Park from about 1920. The family would be relatives. Thank you.

Hi Archie,

I was going through sticky notes of folks to keep an eye out for. I guess the 1911 census doesn't tell you much you didn't know already, but at least it gives you a bit more of a timeline for tracking where they were and when.
Good Luck!
Jamie (will keep the sticky note up for next year!)

Harvey Mustard was my great, great grandfather. His daughter Bessie married Clarence Rhodes. (my ancestors) They lived beside Harvey's original homestead near Spruce View, Alberta.

There is a book written by one of the grand-daughters (Ray Mustard's daughter, I think) which chronicles the outfitting company they ran near Nordegg.

Thank you very much for your reply. I would be very interested in trying to obtain a copy of the book you mention. I wonder if you have any more information? The title or author might be helpful. Harvey McCager Mustard is in the Virginia Mustard line. Please advise if I might be able to provide you with any information. Are you familiar with the "Mustache Creek" story? Thanks again.

I have left a message with my Dad to get back to me with his cousin Betty's full name (she's the author) and the book name. I know this book has been published in exerpts in the Western Star weekly newspaper from Leslieville, Alberta.

I also have a CPR land title record from February of 1902 where H. McCager Mustard purchased 160 acres (NW-17-36-2-W5).

He and his wife reportedly came from Nebraska and purchased the land and then stayed at the sawmill at the Red Deer River Crossing (now Ft. Normandeau) until their house could be built. This land was sold in 1920 to a neighbour (Ben Baker) and Mr. and Mrs. Mustard moved to Jasper with their sons Ray and Bill to begin the outfitting company. (info taken from the community history book of Spruce View area entitled "Grub Axe to Grain"

I don't have a record of the Moustache Creek story, but I did read a story published by Dan Morkeberg (former owner of the Markerville Creamery) who wrote that Harvey was a real character and was known to be able to spit chewing tobacco from one side of the general store to the other and hit the open stove hole. I will let you know when I get the book information.
