  • Homestead papers were taken out on 23 Oct 1904 on Section 36-41-14-W4. The family immigrated to Canada in 1905 with three other families: William and Agnes Muir, no family; Hugh and Jane Parks, with their five sons, Matthew, James, Hugh, William, and John; Mr. and Mrs. John Atkinson with their three daughter, Agnes, Cathrene and Janet. The boat left on 24 Mar 1905 for Canada. They where on the boat for sixteen days. Once in Canada, the McGowans took an immigration train west. Once the McGowans got to their homestead, they lived in a sod hut (called a soddy) until the summer of 1910. At this time a new home was built with a kitchen and a living room on the ground floor and two bedrooms upstairs. The scottish celebration of Hugmony (which happened on Now Year's Eve) was often held at the McGowan house with many nieghbours there. David would play the acordian and Jane would amaze people with the speed of her knitting. They named their homestead "Pleasent View" Usual Residence at time of Marriage David: 39 Rminind Street, Glasgow Jane: 296 Gookston Street, Glasgow
