Renie subsequently married Harry Cowan and went to live on his Swaffham farm. Omee became the wife of George Pettypiece who owned the Hartney Hardware before moving west to Vancouver, Eva married Percy Howard, the operator, in 1903, of the Farmer's elevator.

The council appointed Dr. Gahan as health officer and when he refused to act, gave the position to George Pettypiece, a teacher in Hartney school.

Occupation: Owner of the Hartney Hardware Store, Sep 1900, Hartney, Cameron, Manitoba, Canada. 1306 In a December, 1898, issue of "The Star," Dr. Woodhull wrote, "The Northern Pacific has stopped building its road at the comer of 1-6-23. It is still possible to have it come to Hartney, if we are willing to rustle for it, get to work in a business-like way, quit our child's play and do something reasonable to get the road." Meanwhile, the end of the road became known as "Trackend" and an elevator was built there. The name of this siding was later changed to "Argue". The elevator is now privately owned by the Somerville brothers. A deputation from Hartney, consisting of Mr. John Hunter, and Mr. Festus Chapin, went to Winnipeg, and, supported by Mr. Dickie, their representative in the provincial government, interviewed the railway officials, who agreed to build the line to Hartney if the citizens would raise $600.00 to purchase land for a station and terminal tracks. The deputation returned; the $600.00 was raised by subscription, and in spite of the rival bids of Deloraine and Melita the railway reached Hartney in September, 1900, with its first consignment of freight consisting of stoves, ranges and kitchen ware for George S. Pettypiece's hardware store. The year that the Northern Pacific line reached Hartney, it was taken over by the Canadian Northern Railway Company, which later became part of the Canadian National Railways system.
