BEULAH HOME @1950/51 My name is William Randal McCormick. My mother, Nathella Bernice McCormick nee Harrison,in either Fenn or Stettler, Alberta February 25, 1928. I am a son of Nathella Bernice Harrison and William Perry McCormick. Following my parents divorce my mother became pregnant and birthed a daughter at the Beulah Home in Edmonton, Alberta. This may have been 1951, spring. She may have called her baby Esther. After the birth my mother married Orville Slaght, of Edmonton, Alberta. I have an article from an Edmonton newspaper showing a picture of babies for adoption from the Beulah home. I suspect my grandmother saved it. As a half-brother,I, as well as other members of our family would be interested in making contact with the sister we never knew. If you read this and prefer not to make a connection, please know that we think of you fifty years later, we miss you and love you. , Coquitlam, BC Canada

Ouellet/Ouellette family, from Quebec (?) arriving in St. Paul area, between 1889-1908. Looking for info re: my grandfather, Romuald Ouellet(te) who we believe was born somewhere in the Province of Quebec either 1889 or 1890. Romuald was part of a very large family (23 children, more than 18 survived infancy). His father’s name may have been Henri (or Honore?) and had a homestead near a lake in the St. Paul area prior to 1910. Romuald married my grandmother, Codelia Poulin from Vegerville, early 1920s. I found one Romouald Ouellette who had made a land claim (NE 20-57-8-w4), however, I do not know exactly where this land is located (where is township #57?). My grandfather died in a work-related accident in Edmonton in the early 1940s (1942?)- he fell several stories when a scaffolding collapsed. My father, Romuald and Cordelia’s son, Dollard Joseph Ouellet (b. 1928 in Edmonton) was a young teen at the time of his father’s death and knows little about Romuald’s side of the family. I’m interested to know if they were among the Metis families that settled in the St. Paul area or if they were among the French-Canadian claim jumpers? My grandfather is said to have once trained to become a missionary and is said to have spoken fluent Cree. I believe that his mother (my great grandmother) was either a Cree woman or Metis. The only (grainy) photo we have of her seems to suggest such ethnic features. Searches via the internet have proven frustrating, yielding only the land claim. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thankyou in Advance, Louise (Ouellet) Marleau. , Winnipeg, MB Canada

OOPS – please note the following adjustment to the previous post: My father, Dollard Joseph Ouellet was born in VEGREVILLE, Alberta, 1928. Mother: Cordellia Poulin; Father: Romuald Ouellet(te) Thanks again! , Winnipeg, MB Canada
