Memorable Manitobans: John Richard Carthew (1863-1916)

Farmer, merchant, municipal official.

Born at Meadowvale, Ontario on 24 June 1863, son of William Carthew and Mary McLennie, the family emigrated to Manitoba in 1879 and homesteaded nine miles east of Carman. He joined his family in Manitoba in 1880, assisting his father on the farm until 1891 when he went to Oregon. Returning to Carman in 1894, he opened a general store which operated until 1898 when he was appointed clerk of the Rural Municipality of Dufferin, a position he held until January 1902. In 1901 he was appointed clerk of the County Court. He served as Mayor of Carman in 1910. He died at Carman on 6 March 1916.
