Louise Grandmother
Louise ?, Excelsior, Alberta, Canada - Does anyone know anything about Excelsior, Alberta, Canada? The only info I have is that it is north of Edmonton. My Great Grandmother's death certificate states that she was born in Excelsior, Canada Sept 6, 1892. Louise, passed away in 1938 of cancer at the age of 45 in Miami Florida. Her past is a complete mystery to us before she met my great grandfather Joseph/James/Jack Buynar around 1927 and together they had 4 children (Esther b. 1928 Indianapolis, Indiana, Joe b. 1931, Al b. 1933 & Estelle b. 1935). She may have lived on or near an Indian reservation, where may have Jack found her and brought her to the US? He once said he found her in Canada near the US border. She may have left another family behind, about 4 children, in Canada. She might have spoken French or have been American Indian (Blackfoot) and French. My grandmother, Esther, never knew her mother's real maiden name, maybe something like CABRERA, CABERA, CABEIR??? She may have had a brother who could have been a mounty. We would greatly appreciate any insight into our family. Thank you, Geri Ellen.
