This monument in the Rural Municipality of Riding Mountain West, dedicated in September 1983, commemorates David George Nield and Laura Mabel Ross and their descendants. Nield came to Manitoba in 1882 at the age of six and homestead with his parents, George Andrew and Mary Nield, on NW4-20-26W, as one of the first settlers in the Seeburn district. Laura was born to Rev. Richard Ross and Margaret Ross, who were the initial settlers in the Rossburn district (1879). The municipality and town of Rossburn bear their name.
