Memorable Manitobans: Kenneth McLeod (1828-1904)

Fur trader, farmer.

He arrived at York Factory in 1847 in the service of the Hudson’s Bay Company and remained with them for twenty-three years, chiefly at Rocky Mountain House and Fort Edmonton. In 1870 he took up farming at Poplar Point. He was a member of the Portage la Prairie group who came down to rescue Dr. John Christian Schultz after he was captured by Louis Riel during the Red River disturbance of 1869-1870. This undertaking resulted in their own capture. He served in the Riel Rebellion of 1885. He died at Winnipeg on 19 September 1904. His wife and seven children survived him.
