Memorable Manitobans: Frank Taylor Hallett (1873-?)


Born at Axminster, England on 5 February 1873, son of Charles Hallett and Susan Pike, he came to Canada in 1892 and settled at Guelph, Ontario. He later came to Manitoba and purchased a farm near Oak River which he operated for two years before becoming proprietor of the Oak River House until 1902. In that year, he purchased the Western Hotel at Carberry. He married Ella Vaughan, widow of Willaim Vaughan of Montreal, in 1899. They had three children: Monte Hallett, Susan Hallett, and Frank Hallett. He was a member of the IOOF and the Independent Order of Foresters.
