William R. Embleton -- A native of County York, New Brunswick, Canada, and born on February 14, 1852, Mr Embleton is the son of Robert and Elizabeth (Wilson) Embleton, both natives of England, who emigrated from their native country in early life to Frederickton, New Brunswickj, where the father engaged in the occupation of farming, and where William attained manhood in County York, receiving his early education in the schools of Frederickton, but being able to attend only during the winters, as he was obliged to assist his father in the work of the farm. He continued on the farm, assisting in the labors and the management of the property until he was twenty-eight years old. Leaving the land of his nativity in 1880 he went to Winnipeg, Manitoba, and obtained a position with a government surveying party engaged in making surveys west of Winnipeg for the Canadian government, and remained in that employment during the succeeding summer. In the fall, however, he went to Fort Walsh, Canada, and in the winter of 1880 and 1881, from Fort Walsh he came to Fort Benton by means of a dog team over the snow, this being the only means of transportation. In 1881 he purchased the right of a squatter to the land where his ranch is located, and entered upon a successful life of ranching and stockgrowing. Mr Embleton was united in marriage in County York, NB, to Miss Agnes Nesbit, a native of that country and the daughter of George Nesbit, who was a native of England, and who had established his home in early life in New Brunswick. Upon founding his new home in Choteau county, Mr Embleton sent for his wife and two children, who had remained at their home in New Brunswick, and they came to Bismarck by rail and then by steamer up the Missouri. They were met at Cow island by Mr Embleton, and the remainder of the journey was made by team. Mr Embleton is counted as one of the substantial business men of his section of the county, and the family is highly respected. He is a stanch member of the Republican party, a loyal supporter of its principles, although he has never desired public office.
