Hi April,
The Master Surname Index (not online) (mostly burials in Alberta cemeteries) of the Alberta Genealogical Society lists these possible names;

Lucinda HICKS, - 2 Apr 1919, nee Amstrong, wife of Harry, died at Ft William.
Sarah ARMSTRONG, - 18 Mar 1937.
Hazel ARMSTRONG, - 10 Jan 1919.
Lettie Opal HICKS, - 9 Feb 1988.
Samuel ARMSTRONG, 3 Jan 1923.
All buried next to each other in the Provost cemetery.

The also we have;
Lettie O. HICKS, 1900 - 1988 with a family headstone in the St Joseph cemetery in nearby Cadogan. With also other Hicks in this cemetery.
I could send you these if you let me know.

This is an old message so hope you are still following. My great-grandmother was Isabella (Bella) Newell nee Armstrong. Her brother John Armstrong lived in Provost. Her mother was Sarah Armstrong and her father was Samuel Armstrong. Samuel and Sarah had a large family, with about half succumbing to the 1919 flu outbreak. Isabella and her husband, William, were married for about 70 years.

My grandmother was Winnifred Hazel Svenson nee Newell. Born in 1902. In one of her letters she states, "Clarence and Mabel (Hicks) spent their summers with us after their mother died". All of Isabella's children except Lawrence had her brothers or sisters names included in there given names.

I am still trying to put together this part of the family. If you feel this may be a match, I can be emailed at:

I hope this helps.

Hi Randy, sorry that this has taken me so long to respond to. I just found your message tonite, I haven't been doing any searching as I thought it was a dead end and life stuff took over. How lovely to find out some information about my Grandfathers family, my dad would love to hear more about this. I grew up with stories about my Great Grandmother Lucy and how her passing really effected my grandfather. It was always interesting to me to know more about this huge hole in my family history. A few years ago my eldest sister, Dad and I drove to Provost to visit Lucy's grave and found that she was buried right beside her parents and other siblings, it was so very emotional for all of us (my dad, sister and I) It is interesting how such a little connection with the past can effect you so very much. I would love to know more about this. I can be contacted via my email. Do you know any of the Armstrong family now? My dad also used to talk of his great uncles who were Armstrong's and of cousin's. I herd that they all moved to other parts of Alberta (Edmonton and such ?) I grew up on the West Coast (my parent's Bud and DIanne moved from Ontario) Presently I live in Calgary. I guess we would be cousins of sort? Not sure how that works? Thank you again for this great information. I hope to hear more soon! Many Blessings, April Hicks Boettcher Email:

Hi sorry that this has taken me so long to get back to you. I haven't been on here for a few years, I thought that I was at a dead end. I would like to know more info about the Armstrong family and am curious about the family tree and such. My father is still alive and does have some memory about the Armstrong's especially his Great uncles. Thanks again,
