I'm trying to determine where/when my great grandfather died ... and am wondering if it was in Hardisty. I've done research and found Peter Patenaude living in Wetaskiwin with his wife Mary and kids ... according to the 1901 census.
Peter owned a livery stable in Wetaskiwin between the Criterion and Driard Hotels ... and rebuilt there after a fire destroyed the block in 1903. I've got a newspaper reference from the Daily Herald in Calgary, dated 4 Apr 1907 that says Peter helped Camille Miquelon purchase the Cecil Hotel in Hardisty, AB in 1907. A newspaper clipping from Wetaskiwin in 1910 is calling Peter to appear in court there to deal with an outstanding Mortgage claim for property in Wetaskiwin ... Camille is mentioned as a co-defendent ... and Camille's brother is filing the suit.
So I'm wondering if there's any record of Peter in Hardisty ... perhaps his burial ... around 1909 and 1910.
