Biographical history

Charles Selby Haultain, 1862-1903, was born in Ontario, the son of Isabella and Francis Mitchell Haultain. He studied medicine in Toronto, but took a break during his third year to serve as a medical officer in the 1885 Riel Rebellion (North West Rebellion). He then completed his medical courses in Toronto, and subsequently obtained his LRCP in England. He set up practice as a physician in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He spent the summer of 1888 as a doctor at the North-West Mounted Police post at Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan, and when offered a commission in the NWMP as assistant surgeon in 1890, he accepted. In 1890 he also married Henrietta Eleanor "Etta" Dennistoun, 1866-1945, the daughter of Kate Kirkpatrick and James Dennistoun of Castleknock, Peterborough, Ontario. They had five children, Robert Mitchell "Robin", 1891-?; Frederick, 1893-1894; Norman, 1895-?; Henrietta, 1897 or 1898-?; and Charles Frederick, 1901 or 1902-?. In 1890 the Haultains were stationed in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan. They were subsequently stationed at Regina, Saskatchewan, 1891-1894; Fort Macleod, Alberta, 1894-1902; and Battleford, Saskatchewan, 1902-1903. Charles and Etta spent the summer of 1901 on leave in Pacific Grove, California. Charles died of influenza in Battleford in 1903, and was buried at Fort Macleod. In 1904 Etta and the children returned to Port Hope, Ontario, where Etta spent the rest of her life. Charles' brother, Theodore Arnold Haultain, was a well-known essayist, who fought in the South African War..
