Luxton Saskatchewan

Unincorporated Area

Located on Sec 8, Township 5, Range 6, W2

Latitude- 49 22' 00" N
Longitude- 102 46' 02" W

Located in RM of Browning #34

My guess-
Possibly named after William Fisher Luxton (1844-1907)
Co-Founder and Editor of the Manitoba Free Press
but history books say it was named after a Canadian Poet / Writer?
Eleanor Luxton, (1908-1995) granddaughter of William,
wrote a book on Banff,  so could be named for her?

Located 1 mile south from Lampman, and Minard

Located on Canadian Northern Railway Branch line
south to Kingsford, then Bienfait, and Estevan
Later changed to Canadian National Railway
built in 1909 and called the Bienfait Branch, 16.4 miles

Elevation 1947 ft
