Notes for Henry Atwell “Atwell” BOYLE


Farmed south half of SW 9-36-9-W2.

From Lintlaw history book:

For many years he hauled supplies to the Western Construction sawmill at Windy Lake. On his return trip, he brought back a load of lumber. For many years Atwell drove the cream truck delivering cream to Preeceville. He hauled water to various homes in Lintlaw. They also supplied the town with milk for many years. Atwell was dray man hauling countless articles from the station to different businesses in town. In the winter he used a team but in the summer a small tractor. This work continued until his death in January 1969 at age 72. He was found dead after suffering a heart attack, while hauling water.

Was recruited for WW I (there is a picture of him and Louie Beanland, also from the LIntlaw area, in their uniforms). His medical exam was Dec. 4, 1917, in Humboldt, SK, and he was discharged on demobilization on Jan. 21, 1919. At the time of recruitment, he was listed as living at the Ardsley Post Office, SK, and was a single farmer. He was listed as 5’10”, fair complexion, with brown eyes and dark hair.

Manitoba Vital statistics confirms his full name, birth date, and mothers name.
