Family deaths

Edson Alberta 1915-1939 We're trying to locate burial dates for:
Dorothy Ellen Mabel Mills, 1st daughter of
Thomas and Cynthia Mills of Edson Ab. She died in infancy,and also of 2 small sons Robert Mills and Henry Donald McPherson Mills. all infant deaths. The children are buried in the Pioneer Cemetery at Edson Alberta and that's as far as we know. All of them born during the years following 1915, not sure of birth dates either. We're doing a family history, that's why we'd like the information if possible. Henry would have been born in the early 1930's and Robert in the late 1920's as far as we know. Thanks for your help.

information on a death

MAUTHE, STRATHCONA, 1910 - 1913 -
I am searching for information on my G Grandmothers Death. I don't have much information. I have a photo of her in a casket taken by M. Burgess in Strathcona. She had a child in 1910 but my grandfather does not remember her so I figure she died before he was 5 which would be 1913. The Child born in 1910 died in infancy. His name was Monroe her name was Lenora (Nora) Ewing Mauthe nee Jones. I have a corner from a receipt from what looks like a Funeral Home. The PO Box in the corner is PO Box 1433. It reads in part "In account with A....."It shows they were charged for Casket & Shell, Hearse & Carriages, Gloves, Embalming, Opening Grave, Attendance etc, Robe and Death Notice. Her Husbands name was George P Mauthe.

George Albert Johnson

Trying to find more information about my Grandfather's JOHNSON family. Grandfather, Lawrence E. Johnson (b 1904 Red Deer - d 1981 Williams Lake BC) had two siblings:
Amy Marie Johnson (b Feb 1906 Alberta - d. Australia) and
George Albert Johnson, Jr (b Sep 1908 Cushing, Nebraska - d Sep 1993 Lethbridge).
Their mother's ancestry, that of
Fredrika "Freda" Johanna Bergner (b 29 Sep 1883 Stode Sweden - d 14 Oct 1951)
& buried in Lamerton Alberta) is known. Freda's father being
Erik Peter Bergner (b May 1864 Stode Sweden - last known in Lamerton, Alberta) and her mother
Ingeborg Mart(h)a Pahlsdotter (b Nov 1862 Stode Sweden - last known at Jarvis Bay, Alberta).
They immigrated from Sweden via the ports of Gotheburg Sweden, Liverpool England,
Queenstown Ireland, and New York City, USA. The arrived in NY on SS Alaska 14 Aug 1887 &
were heading for Atkinson, Holt Co., Nebraska. They appear on the 1900 South Dakota census
in Gregory, Gregory Co., South Dakota. They next appear in 1901 Alberta census in
Lamerton near Mirror in the Red Deer area of Alberta. Besides Freda they had four other daughters:
* Bert(h)a (b 29 Jun 1887 Sweden) who married George Neis (son of Henry Carl & Elizabeth Neis) and
had Thelma, Virgil, Henry, Rhoda, & Lavona;
* Edith (b 25 Sep 1891 USA) who married Charles Reay and had Norman
* Esther (Hester, Esta) & * Ruth who were both living with their widowed mother Ingeborg in
the Lamerton area on the 1916 Alberta Census
Am very interested in finding more about my Grandfather's father. I know that one of my
Grandfather's nieces in Lethbridge Alberta had researched this tree. Perhaps someone in
Beverly's family is continuing her work. Meanwhile hoping to find information about
George Albert Johnson Sr. who appears as age 23, on the 1906 Alberta census with
his wife Freda, son Lawrence, dau. Amy Marie, and son George Jr.
at Section 22, T41, R22, W4 in the Lamerton area. Wondering if the neighbour
George Johnson appearing on the 1901 Alberta census birthdate 27 July 1883 and listed as the son of
William Johnson, born 23 May 1847 in Ontario (ie: family information states that their father was born in "York - not Yorkshire") of English heritage and of
Jane A. (Johnson) born 1 Mar 1954 in USA of German heritage. Their children are listed as
George b 27 July 1883 USA
Dolly b 6 Mar 1885 USA
Nelly b 11 May 1886 USA
Bessie b 15 May 1887 USA
Florence b 25 Dec 1888
They lived near George T., Mary J., and Mable L. White and Bill and Ida Greene as well as the Bergners
in the Lamerton area of Alberta.

Eugene Olsen my Grandfather apparently was born in Washington State about 1875. He married Mary Desnoyer and had 2 children, Mildred and Harry.
