Didsbury - Anderson

Didsbury - Anderson

Classification: Query
Surnames: Anderson, McDermid
I have verified that Henry D. Anderson died in Didsbury in 1915 and is buried there. He was born in PEI about 1834. I am looking for his son, Franklin D.(probably "David") Anderson. There is a "thank you" in the Didsbury paper from Franklin and his family following the passing of his father. Anyone come across Franklin Anderson in Didsbury? He was born 1862 in St. Peters, PEI. He married in Aug 1898 (Washington State) to Hannah Elizabeth McDermid of New Brunswick. It is possible he sold farm machinery in Didsbury. I have tracked two children, but don't know if they survived: Sadie and Laurence Webster Anderson(both born in Washington state. It appears that Franklin accompanied his father back to Canada and that the wife followed later. She and the children appear (without Franklin) on the Washington census for 1910 but not thereafter. It is probable that they moved to Alberta shortly after 1910. Franklin is the brother of Gilbert Julias Anderson, my 2nd great grandfather.

Update: I found the family on the 1916 census of Alberta! Now I just have to find out if they stayed there or moved again.

Also 10 other ANDERSON's in Different areas of the cemetery, some with no born dates, none that fit your query.

Thank you. I may have to do a road trip and come up to dig around the archives in Alberta one of these days. I really want to findout what happened to Franklin Anderson and his family (children Lawrence Webster Anderson and Sadie Bernice Anderson) after 1916.
