Pioneers and Progress, Alix – Clive Historical Club, 1974

Mr. and Mrs. Anton (Tony for short) Fischer and their five children, Robert, Margaret, Frances, Kathrine, and Lawrence, arrived in the Alix district early in the spring of 1925 from their homestead in south-eastern Alberta.  They first settled on the George Nielsen farm in the Stanton district.  The four oldest children attended the Stanton school that year.  Lawrence passed away in the fall of that year.

Then in the spring of 1926 they moved along with their family to the A.G. Ditto place on the northern outskirts of Alix.  Here they farmed and helped Mr. Ditto with the dairy for two years.  The children attended Alix School.  In April of 1928 they again made a move, this time to the D.C. Anderson place in the Nevis area.  Here was home for the next five years. The children all attended school at Carroll, but as the years went by … Kathrine was the only one left in school when they left here in April 1933….

Robert and Kathrine moved to Lacombe with their parents in April 1933….

Their children now [1974]: Robert Fischer of Vancouver, B.C. Mrs. Mike (Margaret) Gaetz, Lacombe, Alberta….Frances – Sister Mary Frances Louise S.S.A., Victoria….
