Jessie Ross coronation alberta

Looking for any information on a Jessie Ross who was a farmer in Coronation Alberta in the 1940s-50s.
She was Scottish by birth, her family originally from Dornoch, and the cousin of my grandmother Elsie Sutherland.
I'm assuming that Ross was her married name and that her maiden name was either Calder or Sutherland.
Jessie Ross had several children, one of whom, a son, fought in WW2 and visited my grandmother's family at the family flat on Byres Rd in Glasgow while on leave. He had at least one daughter who visited the family at the same flat towards the end of the 1950s along with her cousin - another of Jessie Ross' grandchildren. After that the families lost touch.

All I know about my family members is that they imigrated to Canada from Dumbarton, Scotland between 1901 and 1914. The head was William Walker and I have his address as Vermillion from the Military sign up papers of his son Anderson Reid Walker.

Patenaude's in Wetaskiwin

Patenaude, Wetaskiwin, 1902 to 1910

I'm looking for information about Peter and/or Anthime Patenaude ... brothers living in Wetaskiwin between 1900 and 1910. Peter is present on the 1901 Census ... but missing on the 1911 Census. His wife returned to Winnipeg with 6 kids in 1902 ... without Peter.

The Henderson Directory lists a Peter Patenaude living in Wetaskiwin in 1905 and again in 1907. I also have homestead records for both Peter and Anthime issued in 1901 for Township 46. Peter's record says "section 36, township 46, range 24, meridian 4, File #383040".

I believe Peter must have died in Wetaskiwin ... so any information about his death would be greatly appreciated!!
