It is not from desirous circumstance that I am called to give this message for the newsletter. I am sure we all are saddened by the news that our President, Judy Bradley, suffered a stroke in July. We wish Judy a speedy recovery.
As I am pressed into assuming the role of president in her absence I am most grateful for the support and assistance the rest of the executive and seasoned members have given me. Thank you. It is only with your help that I am able to fill this role.
On August 24th David Leonard from the Alberta Archives requested our support for the Monkman Homestead Preservation Societyís project to digitize the records of the homesteads in the Peace River Country from 1906 to 1914. Some of the executive met with him and we have decided to send the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation a letter expressing our support for this project.
On September 7th Gail Schau, Lynda Shopka, Marilyn Wales and I, representing our branch, along with Laura Turnbull and Margaret Kay, who were attending in their capacity on the provincial board, attended the AGS workshop in Edmonton September 7th and 8th. We enjoyed the camaraderie of the trip and the socialization between and after meetings where we brainstormed with representatives from other branches. It was a good show, in both numbers and participation from the Grande Prairie branch, of which we can be proud. Well done.
It is my hope that everyone has had a great summer while our Branch's activities were suspended for July and August. I look forward to the resumption of regular activities and sharing our research experiences as we move into the fall.
If you would like to have your Pedigree Charts included in the Index shown later in this newsletter, please forward them to Laura Turnbull by November 1, 2001. An update will be printed in the next issue of Heritage Seekers with any additions.
Criteria for the charts is outlined with the Index printed in this issue. Please mail to the Branch address. Thank you

Picture in your mind a person standing at the edge of a very big muddy puddle - too big to walk around. Each person who encountered this situation would react differently. Some would stamp through leaving deep imprints; others would tiptoe through leaving small traces of having passed. While still others would sit at the edge of the puddle and wait for it to dry before they crossed. You can imagine the tracks the last group of people left. Whenever I seem to be at a roadblock in my research I can't help but picture the above scenario and see my ancestors as falling in the last two groups - no tracks for me to trace or very few. This is an example of one of my hard to trace families.
Cornelius McMahon was born about 1823 in County Clare, Ireland. He married Sarah McCue, daughter of Dennis & Honora Moran. I estimate they married in 1846, whether in Canada or Ireland I don't know. I found the family on the 1861 census for Ayton, Normanby Twp., Grey Co., Ontario and can follow them through till the 1901 census. Kids appeared as they were born and literally disappeared once they came of age. The children were all born before Ontario civil registration began and of a total of 9 children (although one did die) there is only marriage registration for two in Ayton, Normanby, Grey County, Ontario.
I did find them in the local directory and they were buried in the Ayton cemetery, but they weren't in the marriage books, local history books, the church history, or surrogate records. There were two other McMahon families living in the small town of Ayton, Ontario so I started researching them hoping I could link them to my McMahon's, I haven't found the connection yet!
I did find the death registration of Cornelius & his wife Sarah. The local cemetery had their son Michael, who died in 1872 at the age of 16 yrs., buried with another Michael McMahon, who died Jan. 28, 1856 and was born in 1806. It is possible this was Cornelius' father. I was ecstatic; finally a lead! But to no avail, there weren't church death records for that early time period.
At this point I felt like there was no way I was going to find further information on this family. I thought I had tried every angle.
Then I heard about searching land records, it sounded daunting to me, but I read what I could find and thought what did I have to lose?
I went back to the County of Grey Directory for 1865, which listed what Lot & Concession they were living on. After visiting this web site at <http://globalgazette.net/APOLROD/apolrod6.htm> that has the addresses for all the land records office in Ontario, I found the one for Grey County and wrote a letter requesting the abstract for that Lot & Concession in Normanby Township. For a fee (abt. $7.00) and a self-addressed stamped envelope they will send it to you. Once you have the abstract you can follow the Lot through the years listing the various owners but more than that is the instrument number, which is in a column on the left hand side. The instrument number is a number that relates to the certain transaction that took place in the land record. It could be a mortgage; a sale or a will could be filed with the land records to show ownership as was described in the will. Once I received the abstract I was elated to find one entry as you can see below that had listed "copy of will".
Instead of filing the will with the Surrogate records, this will was filed with the land records. So now in order to see that entry I had to order that instrument number, which I did, and received a copy of his will.
The will didn't answer all my questions but it did tell me more about the family. I am still at a roadblock on this family and have only traced 3 of the nine children. The children's names were John b.1847, Marianne b.1849, Michael b.1856, Margaret b.1858, Maria b.1859, Edward b.1860, Bridget b.1862, Sarah b.1865 and Eliza Jeane b.1868.
I keep wishing that my ancestors had walked up to the big muddy area and jumped in with both feet - spreading bits of mud all over the place and leaving deep and well defined footprints. For now I will keep searching for their tiptoes.
A few issues ago, an article in Heritage Seekers brought the "Alberta Heritage Digitization Project" on the internet to our attention. Recently while surfing through the site, I noticed that they have digitized the Sexsmith Sentinel Newspaper from Thursday, September 15, 1949 to Wednesday, October 6, 1954. The Sentinel was published weekly on Wednesday.
You can go to this web site and look at actual copies of the newspaper. I noticed some "newsy" little tidbits about many long-time Sexsmith families in the "They Say" column. Articles included stories from neighbouring communities as well (e.g.: Hythe, LaGlace etc.)
If you haven't checked out this fantastic web site - you should! I spent an entire evening reading issues of the Edmonton Bulletin from 1915. The background information about World War One was fascinating - especially the "Canada's Roll of Honour" listing soldiers who where reported wounded, missing or dead. This roll listed the men by Battalion, from all over Canada.
If you want to put some meat on the bones of your family stories - this might be the site to do it. The digitization project is also copying Alberta Local History Books. You can find it at: http://ahdp.lib.ucalgary.ca/home.htm

"Come one, come all - and we'll have a ball!"
On the weekend of August 12th, 2000 there was a happening to surpass all happenings in the small hamlet of DeBolt. The event was the annual Heritage Festival and Fair, but a committee was formed early in the year to plan a Homecoming - School Reunion to go with this, usually little, day.
The committee knew that there was a good response to invitations, phone calls and 'word-of-mouth' advertising of the event, but were thrilled to see the actual turnout. The hamlet was full of people and it was a true celebration. Those that stayed home missed seeing old friends and school chums that flocked from all across the country.
The committee was comprised of students from the 12 one-room schools that used to be in the area that is now Ridgevalley School area. The committee was co-chaired by Alice (Stevenson) Hickson from Mountain Springs School and Elaine (Birnie-Brown) Moore from Clarkson Valley School. They had members on the committee from most of the 12 original schools and sub-committees took care of registration, activities, parking, and food. There was cooperation with other associations involved (D&D Pioneer Museum Society, U.C.W., DeBolt & District Ag. Society, the DeBolt Pioneer Centre, and others).
The One-Room Schools were as follows:
These schools gradually opened from the early 1920's to the 1950's, and operated until they gradually closed in the 1950's to 1970's, to one amalgamated Ridgevalley School which today has 'K to grade 12'.
The weekend schedule was quite simple. Friday night was the opening reception and registration, and the whole east end of the hamlet became an instant RV park as the rigs began to arrive. Each school district had a designated area for parking.
On the Saturday the visitors were invited to take part in the usual Heritage Festival and Fair activities which included loony pancake breakfast, parade, fair opening, activities in the park, afternoon tea at the Legion Hall, and the church supper in the hall. The reunion committee decided to have an old-timers dance at the Pioneer Centre, and it didn't take anything away from the public dance in the Centennial Hall - both had good crowds.
On Sunday morning there was a special musical presentation at the DeBolt United Church, forced indoors as it was threatening to rain. After this enjoyable session, everyone gathered back at the DeBolt Pioneer Centre for a large pot luck meal, and farewell.
The weekend was a great success, and the highlight of it was
the amazing parade at noon on Saturday. Each of the one-room schools
had a parade entry, either a float or marching troops of students.
That was 12 entries added to the usually small annual parade.
It was colorful, and much appreciated by the spectators lining
the two avenues of the little hamlet. Kodak did a good business
and the whole event was well recorded.
Organizers were very pleased with the weekend and the grand attendance and participation. It was a lot of work, it was well worth all the hard work -- but now what do we do for 2001. How do you encore such a success?
Bottom line -- if you get an invitation to go to a school reunion -- GO! This weekend had participants from far and near and it will never happen again -- never with this large group and with this much ra-ra-spirit. Congratulations, Committee!

* In reading the old newspapers, I came across two names of places in Alberta that I had never heard of.
Thanks to Paulette who showed me the books in the library entitled "Place Names of Alberta" by Merrily K. Aubrey, published in 1996, I learned the following:
Grizzley Bear - former post office, in the Codesa area, approximately 39 km west of Spirit River, AB. The name was changed to Belloy in 1926.
Niobe - in the Innisfail area, approximately 27 km south
of Red Deer. Niobe was a Canadian Pacific Railway station and
was named after the cruiser, H.M.C.S. Niobe, one of two warships
Canada bought from Britain when the Royal Canadian Navy was established.
The massive four-funneled Niobe arrived in Halifax on 21 Oct.
1920, the 105th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.
We need someone to take over from Laura Turnbull in getting "Heritage Seekers" put together and ready for copying. Laura has agreed to do the next issue (December, 2001) but we need someone to work with her and take on this very valuable task with the March, 2002 issue.
Please contact Laura for more information or any member of the executive if you are interested.
In the April 29, 1924 Issue of the "Grande Prairie Herald" newspaper the following item appears:
"One of the most notable celebrations ever held in Western Canada will take place on July 1 and 2 of this year at the town of MacLeod in Southern Alberta, when the establishment of the first post of the Royal North West Mounted Police in Western Canada, at old Fort MacLeod, will be commemorated.
The celebration is being held under the auspices of the Mounted Police Veterans and the Town of MacLeod. The establishment of the post took place in October of 1874, fifty years ago, by Col MacLeod and the first troop of "Mounties", who came west from Toronto via Chicago and North Dakota to Winnipeg, and marched west from there. The establishment of this post really marked the beginning of civilization in the country west of Winnipeg."
One of my biggest challenges in doing my French family research has been to identify people and places in all the beautiful photographs and memorabilia I've inherited from my father and his brothers.
A portion of all these photographs and memorabilia are from a time and place having to do with the years my father and his older brothers attended a boy's Catholic boarding school in England (1903-1911). This was Marist Brothers' College, Grove Ferry, Kent. I have been looking for information about this school since 1978. Over the years and many letters to Marist Brothers orders all over England, Scotland, France and even Rome, I have slowly built up my knowledge of the school and how it started.
Last year in September, Laura Turnbull persuaded me to set up a webpage. It is located at: <http://www.telusplanet.net/public/pawette/>. Which I must say, Laura had to set up, because I haven't a clue. I decided to put my father's French lines on this website. Along with my fatherís siblings and ancestors, we also put pictures and information about the Marist Brothers' College at Grove Ferry, Kent.
In April of this year, I received an e-mail with the subject "Marist Brothers." Needless to say, my heart did a flip-flop! Maybe it was a descendant of a former student?
It turned out to be a gentleman, Mr. Williams, who has a home on the land where the college used to be! He also has a connection to Canada. The Canadian connection came about during the war when the RAF sent him to Canada to train as a pilot. His elementary flying training was at De Winton, south of Calgary. Later he was sent to the Bay of Fundy area in New Brunswick. When he returned to England he had his wings and a beautiful Canadian wife.
This past May Mr. Williams celebrated his 80th birthday, and the 50th anniversary of building his house "Fundy" on land purchased from the Marist Brothers in 1947.
Mr. Williams is also the keeper of the Chislet archives, (a small community about 1 mile north of Grove Ferry), which includes much information on the Marist Brothers College. Since we have been corresponding, he has sent me a map of the area, which shows all the buildings that appear on a set of 25 postcards I have of the school and Grove Ferry; he was able to complete my postcard series (I was missing 3 from the set). He supplied me with a history he had written for a local publication, titled the "Marist Brothers of Grove Ferry." The College was a large part of this tiny village area from 1903 to 1939. It was a predominantly French College with French language, customs, food and games. I remember my Uncle Joe telling me that they liked the college because they were out in the country with lots of room to play (when they were not at their studies).
In return, I was able to supply the Chislet archives with 6 photographs showing groups of students with teachers; a photograph of the Grove Ferry train station with students just arriving; plus copies of First Communion cards that name my father and his brothers, giving the dates and place of their communions.
Recently I received another e-mail, subject: "Grove Court." This large house was part of the College complex. A young woman wanted to know if I had a photograph of Grove Court. Her granny lives in the converted Stable Block and she wanted to find a picture of the building to give her granny. I advised her of the archives at Chislet and that her grannyís neighbor, Mr. Williams, could probably help her in her quest. I also wrote to Mr. Williams to let him know about the e-mail I had received. He thought it was so funny, that a search for a photograph of a building right across the lane from him had to go to Western Canada and back to England. He is very well aquainted with "granny" as he has often given her a lift home from the village shop. He can see her home from his.
My main reason for putting the Marist Brothers' College on my webpage is a hope that some day descendants of former students will find my page. I am hoping someone will have the same class photographs I do, but that their copy will have the names of the boys in the pictures. I can find one of my uncles very easily, but my dad and his other brother are not so easy to identify.
Being persuaded to put my query on the "net" has helped me find information in a place I would have never thought to look.
I stumbled across an article that I found so fascinating I want to share it with everyone. I have no relation to the family, but perhaps someone out there will appreciate having it. There are sure to be lots of descendants.
From the ILLINOIS-IOWA-MISSOURI SEARCHER, Vol. 16 #1 Issue 53, page 25 (originally from THE NEWS-REPUBLICAN, Farmington, Iowa, April 6, 1911, but the dateline is Muskogee, Oklahoma).
Married 10 Years, Have 19 Children
Muskogee, OK -- Mr. and Mrs. Frank Scott of Highland, Kansas, are seeking a home in this state with plenty of land. They will need it, for although they have been married not quite ten years, they are the parents of nineteen children, all boys, and thirteen of them living. They hold the record for triplets, having five sets to their credit, and two sets of twins. All of her thirteen boys are under five years.
Recently the Scotts, deciding that they must find more land, went to Alberta, Canada. They were not satisfied there and returned. On the return trip Mrs. Scott and her thirteen children all rode on one first-class ticket. At Omaha the conductor made a vigorous protest.
"Madam, you cannot carry a whole Sunday School along with you on that one ticket," he said, "and you need not tell me those are all yours. You will have to pay for some of them."
"The rules of this railroad provide that a child under five years may ride free, when accompanied by its parent with a first-class ticket, don't they?" retorted Mrs. Scott.
"They do, but you will have to show me."
Mrs. Scott dug down into her valise and brought out the Family Bible in which was recorded the names and ages of each of the children. The conductor had to give in. The mother and children occupied five double seats in the homeseekers' car and paid for only one.
The names and ages of the children are: Ashbell, Archer and Austin, triplets 4 1/2 years old; Arthur and Arnold, twins, 3 1/2; Allan, Almon and Albin, triplets, 2 1/2; Albert, Albion and Adolph, triplets, 18 months; Abel and Abner, twins, 6 months. Mrs. Scott is 30 years old and her husband is only a year her senior.
The mother and children are now in Highland [Doniphan County] Kansas, while the father is in Oklahoma seeking a location.
