History / Biographical
Albert George Shepherd was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on September 14, 1914. When he was four years-old, he moved to Hubert, B.C. with his family and was on one of the last wagons to cross the bridge at Hubert before it was washed out. His family moved to the Bulkley Valley to make their fortune in farming. Shepherd was educated at the only school in Round Lake, and later worked on Joe Bourgon’s farm in the early 1930s before purchasing his own farm in the Round Lake area. In 1938, he married Grace Phillips, a school teacher, and the couple had a son (James) and a daughter (Sally). Shepherd was the manager of the Bulkley Valley seed cleaning plant for two years; he later became the northern representative (McBride to Terrace) for the Canadian Farm and Loan Board. After selling his farm in 1948, he was employed by Bulkley Valley Collieries for a year, and also worked as a woods foreman for the TFM Mills in Telkwa, B.C. In 1951, he went into partnership with his father-in-law, Bob Phillips, for two years. He was elected as a school trustee in 1952 and, later, secretary-treasurer of the Smithers and District School Board. Although Shepherd retired in 1976, he was appointed provincial government representative to the board of directors of Northwest Community College in 1977; director of the Telkwa Barbeque; director of the Telkwa Skating Rink; and served as rector warden for St. Stephens Anglican Church. His leisure diversions included woodworking, gardening, and the collection of pioneer artifacts. He died in Telkwa, B.C., on February 16, 1981.
Scope and Content

History / Biographical
William Billeter was born in Portland, Oregon, on March 16, 1895, leaving home in 1910 at the age of 15. During the depression, William worked on a fishing boat, travelling to the Bering Sea to harvest salmon stocks. Billeter met his wife Flo in Butte, Montana, where he worked in a copper mine. Shortly after, they decided to travel to Canada in search of cheap land. In Stettler, Alberta, they met Frank Gilbert and his family, who were considering settling in the Bulkley Valley. Thus, in the spring of 1920, the Billeters travelled to the Bulkley Valley, buying land in the Driftwood area.
Billeter worked as a dairy farmer, in trying conditions, shipping milk to Prince Rupert by rail for over 20 years. Come 1951, Billeter ceased producing milk so as to pursue raising beef. During this time, Billeter acted as secretary for the Smithers Farmer’s Institute. In 1953, Billeter and his wife decided to sell the farm, which was sold to Joe Schwegler. The couple moved to Smithers where Billeter worked maintaining the federal post office and police station, until he turned 70 years-old.
Billeter built two homes while living in the Bulkley Valley: one on Second Avenue and a log cabin on the hillside overlooking the Valley and farm. In the community, Billeter played an important role in building Pioneer Place and Glenwood Community Hall and helping to found the Bulkley Valley Credit Union.
On November 1974, Flo Billeter passed away at the age of 82. On December 5, 1984, William Billeter passed away at the age of 89.

History / Biographical
William John “Wiggs” O’Neill was born in Barkerville, B.C., on September 16, 1882, to Charles Patrick O’Neill and Mary Thressa Gertrude O’Neill (nee Veasy). He had two sisters, Martha Washington and Catherine Lily Beatrice. His father passed away when he was five-years old and his mom sent him and his eldest sister, Martha, to live with his grandparents on their farm on the Bonaparte River, sixteen miles below Clinton, B.C. His mother eventually remarried to James Marsden Lindsay-Alexander, a widower with six children of his own, who worked for the Hudson Bay Company. The family then moved to Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwaii) to attempt beef farming and by 1892, had settled in Port Simpson. During this time two additional children were born; however, Lindsay-Alexander passed away in 1901 at the age of sixty. O’Neill held a number of jobs during his lifetime. He worked on stern-wheel steamers, a truck freighter, and a government ferry. In 1911, O’Neill bought a tunnel boat with gasoline power named the Kitexchen (people of the Skeena). With his partner, Larocque, he made 4 trips a day from Hazelton to Sealy, transporting passengers and freight. In 1912, they moved to the Bulkley River, continuing to transport both passengers and freight. Reservations were made through Aldous & Murray. By August 1912, Larocque was replaced by Bigelow in advertisements for their service (although in financial statements Larocque is still listed). As the Grand Trunk Rail neared completion, O’Neill had to move his boat once more, contracting it out to a freighter to use on Decker and Burns Lakes. By 1916, the boat was sold to the Provincial Government and taken to Francois Lake to be used as the first ferry boat there. Around the same time, O’Neill partnered with Bill Henry, operating a Packard truck to carry freight and passengers from Hazelton to Aldermere. In 1913 he helped in clearing the Smithers’ town site and built and ran various businesses, including a garage, theatre and electric plant. In 1913, being the only master mechanic in Smithers, he built the town’s first electric power distribution system. On July 23, 1914, O’Neill married Edith Marion Steele, an employee at the Union Bank in Hazelton, at Point Grey, Vancouver, BC. The couple had three sons, Charles Patrick, Michael and Bill. O’Neill passed away in 1964 at the age of 82.
Scope and Content
Fonds includes photocopies of manuscripts written by O’Neill, "Steamboat Days on the Skeena River", correspondence with The Province, finances during his partnership with Larocque, a war savings investments form, and a book awarded to him.
