Memorable Manitobans: Charles Tolmie Masson (1880-1927)

Farmer.

Born at Winnipeg on 6 December 1880, son of James Masson and Jane Affleck, his family were originally from Scotland, coming to Manitoba in 1877 and settling in the Pilot Mound district. He later farmed 480 acres on his own account in the Wood Bay area. On 4 December 1919, he married Edith Irene Kerfoot (1884-1982) and they subsequently had two sons and two daughters. He served on the School Board for several years and was a prominent member of the UFA, being Secretary of the Pilot Mound Branch for some time. He was a member of the COF and Presbyterian Church. He died at Wood Bay on 23 March 1927.
