The Siftons had two daughters and a son (who was killed during the Battle of Vimy Ridge in 1917). The family moved into Dutton shortly after their son’s death. The farm was sold to N. Welch, who turned it into an apple orchard. It has since been known locally as Welch's Orchard. Original elements of the house have been preserved.
