Louise ?, Excelsior, Alberta, Canada - Does anyone know anything about Excelsior, Alberta, Canada? The only info I have is that it is north of Edmonton. My Great Grandmother's death certificate states that she was born in Excelsior, Canada Sept 6, 1892. Louise, passed away in 1938 of cancer at the age of 45 in Miami Florida. Her past is a complete mystery to us before she met my great grandfather James/Jack Buynar around 1927 and together they had 4 children (Esther b. 1928 Indianapolis, Indiana, Joe b. 1931, Al b. 1933 & Estelle b. 1935). She may have lived on or near an Indian reservation, where may have Jack found her and brought her to the US? He once said he found her in Canada near the US border. She may have left another family behind, about 4 children, in Canada. She might have spoken French or have been American Indian (Blackfoot) and French. My grandmother, Esther, never knew her mother's real maiden name, maybe something like CABRERA, CABERA, CABEIR??? She may have had a brother who could have been a mounty. We would greatly appreciate any insight into our family. Thank you, Geri Ellen.... firstname.lastname@example.org

LEACH/LECH, Owl River/Lac La Biche, abt 1915-1945- looking for info on my great grandparents and their family. Harry and Anastasia Lech/Leach. I just found that their last name was Lech and not Leach as their children are. Harry was b.Jan 15 1901 in Poland and Anastasia was b. Aug 20 1904. I do not know when they came to Canada.They apparently came to Ontario first and then to Owl River, Alberta. I think their first child, John Leach was b. abt 1924 maybe in Alberta. They also had Steve, Mickey, Annie, Mary, Peter (my grandfather), Helen and Doris. Harry and Anasatasia (known as Annie) left Alberta abt 1945 and brought the girls with them to Vancouver, BC. Both Harry and Annie died in Vancouver in 1975 and 1967 respectively. My grandfather hardly spoke of his family. I just recently met two of his sisters. He passed away last month and I feel a real need to contact his side and learn about who we are and where we came from. We were told his dad was probably english and his mom french?? Now they may be Polish. If any knows of this family, please contact me. I know some of the family is in the Lac La Biche area to this day. Harry and Annie ran a store from their home at Owl River. , Maple Ridge, BC Canada
