|Mr. and Mrs. Clyde W. Storms and baby son, Lorne, arrived in Strathcona
on April 7, 1900, from Omaha, Nebraska.
To make this more informal, from now on we'll refer to them as Mother and Dad.
Dad was born in Weaver, Iowa, third child of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Storms. Mother was born in Centreville, Ontario, second of three daughters of Mr. and Mrs. William Widdis.
Dad had been employed by Armour's Packing Plant; he was supervisor of the refrigeration plant.
They spent their first night in the old Strathcona Hotel, where Mother was frightened by the rough occupants of the adjoining rooms.
