The family moved to Toronto when he was very young, there he received his education, sang in the church choir and worked in the picture framing department of Eaton's store. Having an urge to go west and seek adventure, he and his friend Bill Watson, heard of a carload of settler's effects being shipped west to George Cranston Senior in June 1904. Mr. Clary was in charge of the car and would allow them to stow away. Regardless of the entireties and tears of his mother and sisters, who were certain he would be scalped by Indians, Wisdom left Toronto , June 4, 1904 at the age of 17 with $15 in his pocket. He arrived in Olds ten days later. He worked for various homesteaders gaining experience. In 1906 he filed on a homestead north west of Sunnyslope. His two sisters, Mrs. Lem Evans and Mrs. George Cranston, spent some time with him while the men were building homes on land they had filed in the Trochu district. Mr. Wisdom was a welcome guest at all parties held in the neighbourhood, as he always had his violin and played at the country dances. He spent considerable time with the Haye and Dundas families as he was always happy to partake of a home cooked meal. In 1908, The Cattnach family came to Olds and Norman was a constant visitor. In 1910 Acme was incorporated into a village and Mr. Wisdom was appointed secretary of the Municipality which was then known as the Local Improvement District.

Dick Kimmel, a boyhood friend of the Cattnach family, persuaded them to come to Alberta. They settled in the Bennett district. In 1909 the Mother died and Nina May was forced to quit school to keep house and care for the younger children. She thought she would never learn to make a loaf of bread that anyone could eat.

At which Nina's sisters nearly died of laughter as they knew she had heard every word. Norma Wisdom was born in 1917. Her Dad had always said that he wanted seven stalwart sons, but changed his mind after Norma was born. She was taken to all the dances as a child, while her Dad performed as master of ceremonies. They had a big double bed in the ladies room at the old hall, where the coats were hung and the children slept on it. Baby sitters were unheard of in those days. A good time was had by all.
