    Biographical history

    Albert Loblick was born in 1900 in Spruce Grove, Alberta. During his early working life Loblick was involved in setting up sawmills, including a mill at Widewater, AB and Usk, BC. It is likely that he was involved in some way with the Benesch sawmill, depicted in the 3 photographs.

    Albert Loblick took an early interest in steam engines and, prior to the arrival of the tractor, he was involved in providing steam engines for threshing machines during harvest time. With the arrival of the tractor on farms, Loblick moved on to become a blacksmith and welder.

    Albert Loblick married Francis Helen Schindler (1901-1963) in Edmonton in 1923, and together they had 3 children: Norton (1926-2006), Bernice (Pollock) (1927-2013), and Dermot (aka Snip) (1929-2016). He died in Gibbons, Alberta in 1960.

        General note

        Information for the administrative history/biographical sketch is based on the records, and information supplied by the donor. The location of Lobstick Jct [Junction] is unclear. According to Place names of Alberta, Vol II, there was a Lobstick (locality), Section 30, Township 53, Range 8, West of the 5th Meridian (30-53-8-W5)*, and a Lobstick Settlement, Section 15, Township 58, Range 18, West of the 4th Meridian (15-58-18-W4)*. Both appear to have a geographical relationship to Lobstick River. * Land described according to the Alberta Township System (ATS)
