John W Hall drowning 1907 Taber - Susan Nina later Nordquist

John W Hall drowning 1907 Taber - Susan Nina later Nordquist

Classification: Query
Surnames: Hall, Edwards, Nordquist, James
One branch of my HALL family went from Idaho to Alberta in 1904 and settled near Taber. John W (Wood or Woodruff) HALL drowned there on 16 Aug 1907 according to church records, and was buried at Taber. His wife was Susan Nina nee EDWARDS, and there were three children with them - Tracy Alphonso, who seems to have been known as Alphonso, and two sisters, Vivian, and Viola. Tracy Alphonso was the child of Susan and her first husband, William Tracy HALL - who was John W HALL's brother and died in Idaho. Susan Nina and the children moved to Gleichen about 1913 and she married John Arvid NORDQUIST. Vivian later married Ted JAMES. I would love to make contact with any living relatives to learn what became of them all as well as anything about the circumstances surrounding the drowning - obituaries, newspaper accounts, etc.
