All Their Worldly Goods

an auction sale in Grande Prairie, 1914

an auction sale in Grande Prairie, 1914

This auction sale notice appeared in several papers, and in January 1915 the Notices to Creditors and Claimants were published in the paper.  Reading the list of goods possessed by these men would make one wonder if the proceeds would even pay for the ads.  There isn’t much information about the men, although it appears they were both homesteaders, and both were working at other jobs when they died.
