    Biographical history

    Mrs. Millie Hay (nee Talpash), the youngest of fifteen children, was born ca. 1914 to John and Barbara Talpash. They had immigrated to the United States where John Talpash worked a miner and became a citizen of the United States in 1893. By 1896 the family traveled to Alberta where they lived in several different towns before settling in Colinton ca. 1909 to farm.

    After farming for a while, John Talpash sold the family farm and purchased the Colinton Hotel where he and his wife remained until 1950 when they sold the hotel and retired in Colinton. Millie Talpash attended school in Colinton and later worked for her parents in the Colinton Hotel until 1938 when she met and married Doug Hay.
