My great uncle, Noe VERDON

My great uncle, Noe VERDON

Surnames: VERDON, LACASSE
My great grandfather, Noe VERDON (1847-1925), was born in Quebec, Canada. He was married first to Marie Louise LACASSE (1850-1885) before he married my great grandmother, Emma Jane TREWHELLA in 1886.

From that first marriage, he had a son who was baptised as Joseph Noe Verdon born 1 JAN 1876 in Quebec. He was called Noe. I have lost track of Noe after the 1906 census where he was found in the Yukon.

My father grew up hearing that Noe settled in Falher, Alberta. I simply cannot find any reference to him and would love to know what happened to him.

There's a Noe Verdon who could be yours on the Library and Archives Canada website, under Western Land Grants (1870-1930).

As far as I can tell, from the description and the map provided, his land grant was in the same area as Falher, Alberta, just east of the Smoky and Peace Rivers.

The records can be ordered on microfilm, or I think you can also request photocopies for a fee.

Don't waste your time with the microfilm from the National Archives. Those are only copies of the index cards. If you want to see the actual papers which are located in the respective provinces, use an Alberta source.

See http://abgensoc.ca/homestead/

The location of the grant is the same as Falher, AB, originally a French speaking community
SW 16 T77 R 21 W5

Papers in Volume (Liber) 766, Folio 376, which means they were filed between January 14-22, 1918.

The Master Surname Index (not online) (mostly burials in Alberta cemeteries) of the Alberta Genealogical Society lists only this one VERDON name;

Noe VERDON, - interred 16 Oct 1959 in the St Anthony RC cemetery in South Edmonton. There appears to be no headstone.

I should also tell that those cemeteries in and around Falher are on the AGS Master Name Index. I have also checked for Noe,s wives names, but none.

And there is Société Historique et Généalogique de Smoky River at Donneley near Falher. Find a link and their e-mail on the AGS site.

Thanks to all of you - you're help is amazing. I really did not know where to look. He is not showing up in any of the census records after 1906.

Again - much thanks!

Thank you - though I think this is not my Noe. He was born 1876.
