Dan Malko had bought part of the de Bouvoir property. His family consisted of Katherine, Nettie, Annie, Fred, Steve, Mary, Anthony (note this should read Antonia... jca) .
They pioneered in solid bush in 1904, having little more than their hands to work with even though he had municipal experience in the old country. He was a community man, serving as trustee in Sapton school, on church committees and interested in having his family participate in politics Fred, Anthony, Steve and Mary stayed in Springfield. Fred settled on his share of the family farm some years later, raising Mike, Lorraine, Jerry and Freddie. Fred served eight years on Council, thirteen years as school trustee, active in the Grain Growers, Cattle Breeders, keenly interested in politics, at one time actively supporting Dr. Bissett. He has retired on his farm.

(note by jc anderson.. This description and family fits the family of Metro Malko perfectly, so it appears that Metro Malko and Dan Malko are one and the same person. An interview of Antonia (Malko) Magura on April 17, 2002 revealed that this was her family but her father Metro was never called Dan so the book is in error on this point)

St. Mary's Parish at Sapton.
St. Mary's Church at Sapton was organized around 1911. It was an extension of the St. Nicholas parish which is just a mile and a half west.
