Cyril Ogston was the founder of the hamlet of Seven Persons, Alberta.
Ogston was a late-nineteenth-century member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who practised polygamy in line with the church's teachings at the time. In 1862, the United States Congress made the practice illegal in territories, later adding more stringent laws against unlawful cohabitation. This lead to a migration of many Latter-day Saints to Canada in the 1880s in order to escape prosecution, and to set up communities there. Ogston was one of these, leaving Utah and founding Seven Persons.
