WAXMUND, HENRY 1901 I found where my ancestor Henry Waxmund was on the Alberta 1901 census. I know he died in Lethbridge in 1917. I am looking for any information anyone may have on him. He was married to a Mary Emma Stroupe in 1882 in Perry county, Ohio, USA. Then when Mary died he left his daughter Margaret with his brother Albert in Perry county and went to Canada. I believe he remarried or was living with someone at one time. Anyone having information on him, please contact me. I have very little info. Thanks, Mary Dearing , USA
