Sarah Bevier [1861–1927] is buried in the McBride cemetery. Ether Bevier [1882–1959] married George Clarence Monroe [1885 –1974] and settled on Mountainview Road in 1914. George and Ethel were market gardeners, farmers, and preachers. They initiated the McBride Farmer’s Institute and the McBride Fall Fair. They were Mountainview School trustees establishing the school in its permanent location while promoting Mountainview as a place to settle and raise families. They provided housing for settlers answering Ethel’s promotions in The Free Press.

“To think that I helped skid logs for that little shack brought back many memories of the the people I knew around there,” recalled Alex Cadieux de Courville in 1976. “Like the people of the West End: Bevier, Monroe, Emery Olden, and a good many others.”
