Wallewein Family

Submitted by Chris Browning, Louanne & Mike Wallewein

Adam Wallewein was born in White Russia sometime around 1884 in a predominately German settlement.  His father died when Adam was around age 9 and his mother soon remarried.  There were eight or nine children in the family and since it was, at that time, against the law for her children to leave that country with a stepfather, they were left with other families to be raised while his mother and stepfather came over to settle in Canada.  Over the next few years, Adam lived and worked with numerous families and continued his education until the mandatory age of 16 at which time the government said their education was completed.

Her motivation was to be to get money to finish college.

East Bench Cattle

Written by: Cassidy Brunner

In today’s economy building a family ranch and farm isn’t always the easiest and as some say it can’t be done because working with family just doesn’t work! I, Cassidy Brunner, have been working with my dad on the farm and ranch since growing up and wouldn’t change it for the world!
