The Master Surname Index (not online) (mostly burials in Alberta cemeteries) of the Alberta Genealogical Society lists some 1000 Walker names;

What was the name and born date of that Daughter that came to Czar in 1916, was she married?

Peter;

Thank you for the site.

My grandmother (Charity Priscilla Walker) was married to John Albert Sheeler went she came to Alberta. When he passed away, she married Thomas "Melvin" Butler. There were 14 children with the combined families. My great grandmother Mahala Jane (Clark) (Walker) Hawley is buried in Metiskow, Alberta. Charity's brother Charles Foster Walker also came to Czar area in 1916. John Sheeler is buried in Czar, Alberta. Charity & Melvin are buried in Ardmore, Alberta.

Does the Alberta Genealogy Society take donations of trees or book CD's. I grew up in Alberta as well as my parents. I have travelled the province taking pictures of relatives gravemarkers.

Thank you again,
Laura
