JAY JOHNSON, LESLIEVILLE 1947 - 1960'S
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.

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.
