Dash brothers Fred and Albert arrive from England in 1882. They stop in Broadview to buy oxen, a wagon, tent and supplies. They applied for their homestead in Whitewood, and continued south to Pipestone creek. There they camped, and make a bridge across the creek. The Dash brothers, and Wm. Dixon family were the first settlers in the area. From the homestead records, it appears many Dash family members homestead in the area.

The Dash family look like they homestead in the Dalzell School District area (see above map) Dalzell and Hillesden schools are in the following books, which are not online, but are at the local libraries
