I am looking for more information on William ELMER BURTON who I believe was born February 18, 1916 Conner Creek, AB to Alfred Burgess Burton and Rebecca Brisbam Anderson. He apparently moved to Ontario and was married to a Margaret ?

I believe I found what is possibly him died 1987 and buried in Edgmondville United Cemetery listed as BURTON, William E. 1916 - 1987 (age: 71) with room on tombstone for his wife Margaret A. Small born abt 1929 still living in 1987. The tombstone photo shows up on Canada Gen Web Cemetery Project website at

Want to try and find his death date and where I might obtain an obituary for him. I assume he died at or near Edgmondville, ON. Also would like to locate his wife Margaret who was alive in 1987 and would be about 84 may still be alive. Further information that may help:
Siblings are Eleanor Grigg, Lillian Rebecca Sharlow, Orville Burton, Hazel Whitney, Olive Cadwell, Aubrey Burton, Alfred Austin Burton, Pauline Kiistner and Gladys May Sharrun all from AB or BC area.

Thanks for any assistance or direction.
