Biographical history

William Hyndman Carlyle, 1885-1949, and his brother Samuel Carlyle, ca. 1870-1936, were born in Morewood, Ontario. They moved to Calgary, Alberta about 1906 where they operated a livery stable. William joined the army in 1917 and served in the Forestry Company from southern Alberta in the Canadian Forestry Corps. After the war he established a ranch near Monarch, Alberta and later moved to the Crowsnest Pass area where he ranched and managed ponies for the coal mines. Samuel worked in the Maple Leaf coal mine. They were related to the Carlyle family who operated United Dairies in Calgary and the Maple Leaf (later Hillcrest-Mohawk) mine in the Pass.
