Photograph depicts (from left to right) Jack Lee, Gordon Wyness, Jessie McInnes, and Archie McInnes at Pioneer Ranch.
In 1903, brothers Neil and Archie McInnes pre-empted a section of land two miles east of Cote Flat, each taking half. Archie McInnes' land later became known as Pioneer Ranch (later known as the Barnett Ranch); Neil McInnes' land became Meadowbrook Ranch. Archie McInnes married Jessie Aitken in October 1905. Pioneer Ranch became known as a stop-over for travellers en route from Hazelton to the Ootsa Lake area via the Telegraph Trail. Archie and Jessie McInnes had three daughters: Vera (m. Ivan Frank), Ivy (m. Eric Strimbold), and Neva (m. John Ivan Nickolichuk).
