I was wondering if anyone could give me any more details on my husband's grandfather or point me in the next direction to find details of his family while living in Stettler.
Annie Anstal married Juri (George) Kello on 1st October 1900 at the Lutheran Church, Trey, Verskoe, Russia officiated by Reverend John Johansen.
The lived at Fayre, Russia for two years, than moved to Stettler near Calgary Canada. They had a property called Stewartwyn at Section 32 in township 37 Range 20 West of the 4th Meridian where they lived for 10 years. Juri (George) Kello was naturalized in Canada on 21/06/1909 he was 31. I have copies of the application for Homestead patent under the provisions of the "Dominion Lands Act" from the Alberta Department of the Interior 1906. Dated at Red Deer Aug 10 1909.
Juri (George) and Annie moved in 1913 to Sandy Creek via Gympie, Queensland, Australia. George divorced Annie and married my father-in-law's mother in 1935 in Gympie, Queensland, Australia.
On Juri (George) death certificate 20/12/1944 he was 65yrs and born in Rakrocre, Estonia. He had been in Australia 30 years and his parents were Martin Kello - Farmer and Annie Doem.
