1856: Sister Elizabeth born

1858: Brother Thomas born

 

Archie grew up in a mostly loving and well to do home in Elgin, Scotland.  There is some contention between he and his mother as she is particularly fond of his twin sister, Emily, who is an ace academically.  Archie, Emily and their younger siblings were all afforded the opportunity to go to school.  So they are all well educated, but it doesn't come nearly as naturally to Archie as it does Emily.  When the pair were in school their mother was constantly comparing them and telling Archie he could have done better.  To Archie though the education wouldn't matter, because all he wanted to do was work for his father, whom he loves dearly.  Archie's father, William, owns a shipyard in Elgin that is flourishing and even built a ship for General Lee during the American Civil War.  William wants nothing more than for his oldest son, Archie, to take over the shipyard business now that he is old enough.  While Archie has been working for his father for years, and loves working with his father and building these huge vessels, he also wants to see the world.  Being in the office with his father, hearing all these men talk about their trips aboard these beautiful ships, he can't wait to go across the Atlantic to see America. 

 

And it seems his big break has come.  Archie's uncle, his mother's brother, Ewan MacSual, had moved to Kalispell, Montana in America in 1866 and word has just reached them that he passed away one year ago, in 1875, from a heart attack, or so they guess.  He left the land, farm and home on his property to his sister.  Upon hearing the news, Archie immediately went to his father, asking him to please let him go to America, check on the property, the farm.  He didn't have any intention on moving there permanently, but perhaps....

 

His mother is livid when William gives him permission to go, she finally only reluctantly gives her blessing when Archie promises that he will return within the year.  

 

So on May 9, 1876 Archie's dream of coming to American finally comes true as he sets sail for the Eastern seaboard of America!

    In the quite of the house as he stood just beside the unknown secret door he swore he heard a small voice.  Whispers?  He looked around everywhere.  Was he now going crazy!!??
     
    As he scanned the room he couldn't figure out where the voice had come.  It had been so quite though maybe he hadn't heard anything at all and merely hoped he had heard something.
     
    "Hello?!  Who's there??" Because someone was there....right?  Yes?  "This is my Uncle Ewan MacSual's home.  Did you know him?" He asked the dark night air.  He sighed as he walked and sat down on the edge of the bed.  He just didn't know what to do and it was now really too late to go into town.  Perhaps he would just have to stay the night here.

    With no signs of anyone coming home Archie decided it was just best for him to head back into town for the night.  Fearing though that the soup being left on the burner all night may burn the place down he decided he would allow himself inside one more time to  turn it off.  Making his way back inside he was surprised to find that the stew was off of the heat and a bowl of it was sitting there seemingly untouched and still steaming hot.  So it hadn't been ladled long ago!  He immediately turned around on his heel and looked around.
     
    "Hello!" His Scottish accent run through the room that was dimly lit by the fire in the stove.  
     
    The skirt from earlier was gone too!  Someone had to be here.  He walked all around downstairs, no one.
     
    "Hello!" He called again as he made his way up the stairs.  Going to both rooms, they appeared deserted and by now Archie thought maybe he was going crazy!
     
    "What in the bloody hell?!" he asked to himself as he ran his fingers through his curly hair.
     
    "For Christ sake won't whoever is here will you make yourself known?! I mean no harm!" Maybe he should have said that at first??

    Archie settled in on the porch and was prepared to wait as long as he needed to for the owner of the house to get home.  Not realizing how tired he was he actually dozed off in the hard chair, his head lolling left and right as he'd lightly wake when his head would fall forward.  
     
    He woke as the sun was setting, not having any idea how many hours had passed.  Standing from the chair he stretched his arms over his head, yawning, really wishing he could go and get in his Uncle's nice soft bed inside the house.  Walking around, but with the sky now dark he didn't go far from the house because, well he couldn't see much by the light of the moon.  
     
    He was going to wait just a spell longer before he thought perhaps he would just have to go into the town and find somewhere to stay the night and return tomorrow morning.  He really hoped they'd be here soon though, besides their soup wasn't going to be worth two cents if it kept cooking all night.

    There was no way that Archie would help himself to the soup, or anything inside the house since someone else seems to have made this their residence.  He wondered who it could be.  Another family member?  Probably not.  Had the information passed along to them been in error and he'd left it to someone here in Kalispell?  
     
    Archie had no idea but he intended to stick around to find out.  Wanting to find whoever it was since he figured they couldn't be far he made his way off the porch and walked around the house, looking for the inhabitant.  He found the garden, found the rabbit fur, found many clues, but no one to go with it.  Sighing and figuring whoever it was would have to be home soon he went back to the front of the house and settled down on the porch.  He didn't want to go back inside, even though the home was rightfully his, he didn't want to startle or cause any kind of ruckus with whoever was staying here.  
     
    It felt good, even if it wasn't in the nice soft bed he'd seen inside, to sit down and take a load off.  As he relaxed on the front porch he enjoyed the beautiful view of the land that looked so very different from him home so far away.

  5. Archibald Patrick Reddick
    Archie Reddick had been travelling from his hometown of Elgin, Scotland to Kalispell, Montana since May.  His destination was his Uncle's homestead on the outskirts of Kalispell that had been left to his mother upon his sudden death almost a year ago.  He'd been able to do some sightseeing along the way, enjoying every minute.  It had always been his lifelong dream to travel and finally he got his chance.  
     
    He wouldn't complain though to finally make it to his destination in Kalispell and settle down for a bit.  He arrived on horseback to the home and was impressed by the structure when he arrived.  The house was larger than he imagined and he wasn't sure how far the land went that his Uncle owned.  Anxious for some much needed rest, Archie dismounted his horse and headed inside.  He had no idea what he'd find, for his expectation was that the house had been abandoned for the past year.  Layers of dust? His Uncle's few belongings? 
     
    To his surprise however, he walked in to the aroma of soup on the stove, ladies clothing strewn across the back of a chair.  His brow pulled together, realizing perhaps he should have knocked!  Someone was definitely living here.
     
    "Hello?" He yelled in his Scottish accent as he looked around and walked further in.  He could tell for sure that the place was lived in.  He found her drawings with the pencils and pastels scattered on the table.  
     
    No answer.  He turned and looked back towards the front door.  If someone was cooking soup on the stove they couldn't be far, right?  He walked back out on the front porch, looking into the near by trees, but seeing no one. "Hello?" He called again, looking and squinting his eyes for any movement around.
