Twins Arthur John Cochrane [1891-1941] and Thomas Walter Cochrane [1891-1967] arrived in the area in 1911 to work on the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway around McBride. The brothers homesteaded in the Robson valley, and worked with Donald “Curly” Phillips [1884–1938] and Roy Frederick Hargreaves [1891–1971] at Mount Robson and Berg Lake, respectively.
