Robert Ingersoll Mayer (1881-1937), a civil engineer for the Chicago Northwestern Railroad moved to Alberta from Indianapolis with his wife, Emma, in 1908. They homesteaded along the Little Paddle River and accepted an invitation to operate the post office. The name Mayerville was first proposed for the post office, and when that was rejected they changed it to Mayerthorpe, adding a suffix understood to mean village or hamlet.”
