Margaret (Walford) Clipperton on 31-May-11
Walford was named in honour of my grandfather, Albert George Walford. My father told me that a CPR official came to this area and asked permission of his dad to name the village after him. He did not name the place for himself. I have asked David Scott to change the info in his book but it remains the same. Besides being the engineer for 3 sections (18 miles) of railroad construction, A G Walford became the first station master as well as being named the first post master. His wife, Catherine unofficially ran the Post Office from their house until 1912.
