I am looking for any information about my greatgrandfather, Benjamin Smith. He was born in Washburn, Ontario and was married to Margaret Ann McCarey. He was a ship's captain on the great lakes, but after his wife died around 1901, he moved out west. He settled around Oyen, Alberta and took up farming. He died there on Mar. 5, 1917 and was transported back to Kingston, Ontario to be buried by family. Any information on his time in Alberta would be greatly appreciated.
