Memorable Manitobans: James Eadie (1863-?)

Businessman.

Born at Brantford, Ontario in March 1863, son of Willliam Eadie, he came to Portage la Prairie, Manitoba in 1880 and took up a homestead near where the town of Treherne now stands. He then operated a plastering and brick laying business for ten years until 1891 when he turned to agricultural implement business. In 1884 he married Rachel Little of Ontario. They had six children: Frank Eadie, Edward Eadie, Marion Eadie, Florrie Eadie, Charles Westbrook Eadie, and Ruby Eadie. He was a member of the Knights of Pythias and the Independent Order of Foresters.
