Born in 1871, Silas Abraham lived with his Stoney Indian family in the Kootenay Plains area of the North Saskatchewan River Valley. He became a guide for many early explorers and adventurers such as Martin Nordegg, Mary Schaffer, and Elliott Barns. In 1902 Silas and his family helped construct Tom Wilson's Cabin, the first log structure in the valley.
