  • Name Dalton Paul Hallett  [1, 2, 3, 4
    Notes 
    • Dalton was born on the homestead in Upper Brighton, the second youngest child of Scott & Lydia. He attended the country school in Upper Brighton, and Hartland Superior School. For the most part Dalton has always worked on the farm, occasionally working for Smith's loading lumber or in their potato house.

      On February 15, 1946 Dalton and his brother Wendell bought the farm from their father. Dalton has always lived on the homestead and until 1979 worked the 165 acre farm, which stretches back from its railroad track boundary for about two miles. He usually had 90 to 100 acres planted in potatoes each year and recalls prices for a carload of potatoes ranging from a high of $17.50/barrel to as low as two cents a barrel, or dumping them.

      In 1975 Dalton & Laura built a new house located at the bottom of the hill from the old one. The old house has remained vacant. During the fall of 1979 Dalton retired from farming. John Bubar purchased the land inside the Transs-Canada Highway strip (running through many farms) to the field bordering the old house and buildings which were retained by Dal. Don Hallett bought the land where the Trans-Canada runs through the farm. Dow Foster was the auctioneer for the majority of the equipment and machinery.

      Dalton worked for Raymond Cook and the golf club in Woodstock for brief periods until he obtained employment as a distributor for Atlantic Lotto in August of 1980. He worked for them until 1991/92 when he retired. Dal enjoys reading, golfing and playing pool and cards.
