Still looking for information on Jay Johnson who ranched near Leslieville AB. I can't find him at the Cattlemen Association site, but I understand Jay was a nickname.
Jay had 5 kids with Elida Wagar:Alice, Teddy, Ralph, Eddy and Wayne. My husand's name on a Sunday School certificate is Donald Johnson but Allan and Don were not Jay's kids. Alice was the oldest of Jay's kids; Wayne the youngest. All used the Wagar surname when I met them.
Elida left when Wayne was two, about 1960.
Jay died sometime in the 1960's.
Any help finding information on Jay would be greatly appreciated.

Gavins of Edson Alberta


We are searching for ancestors by the name of Charles Leo Gavin and Mary Ellen (Melville) and their descendants who had a pharmacy in Edson from perhaps the 1920s onwards. He died in 1959 and she perhaps sometime in the mid 1980s. They married 8 January 1921 in the Catholic Church in Swift Currant. He was born in Lansdowne Ontario, and probably went west sometime around 1913 or so. we think she had ancestors y the name of Goodfriend, although her pre-marriage name was Melville. We think that she was the pharmacist and he assisted. There also is some (perhaps erroneous)indication that he may have died in Camrose, although he is definitely interred in Edson as is she where she died.
Can anyone help with information about them and any descendants. They are buried in the principal cemetery in Edson.

I would be a grand nephew, my grandfather, Charles Leo's brother, being Benjamin Gavin of Lansdowne Ontario.

Joseph B Gavin,
