Shared note

Luois was sheriff in Dooley, Montana about 1914-1918.

Moved to Barrhead, Alberta.

"The children went to school at Enid, with Louis attending agricultural College there. Stephen never got on too well with the rest of the Terrels, who were also homesteading nearby. This eventually led to some shooting, and in 1905 or 1906 Stephen loaded the wagons and headed north again. They traveled north across Kansas and the Dakotas, as far as Fargo, North Dakota, where they loaded outfits onto an "immigrant train" bound for Winnipeg and west. They off-loaded near Regina, SK. And took up homesteading near Craik. With the help of sons Louis and John, now eighteen and sixteen, the family "proved-up" on three-quarter sections. In 1909, Grace married Jesse Anderson, a young traveling homesteader from Illinois. Louis married Ruth Williams in 1912. The family's fortunes improved until 1912, when Stephen, Louis, John, and Jesse seeded over 400 acres of wheat with horses. Later that year young John was in a poker game that got out of hand and the farms were sold to pay his debt.

"In 1912 the families were on the move again. Stephen bought land from C.P.R. at Tudor, next to the Schafers. Louis and Ruth went to Montana, where Louis, a stern young man like his father, was sheriff of the frontier town of Plentywood from 1912 to 1917. Grace and Jesse went to the mining town of Butte, Montana. John went loggng in Washington. In 1916 Grace and Jesse went to Tudor and started a general store. Louis and Ruth and John arrived in Tudor in 1918. The Horn, Schafer and Anderson families all lived and farmed around Tudor through the 1920's. Most of the Horn, Schafer, Anderson and Kaughman children were born there." -- Horn, Shafer Family Book, 2004
