NELSON family from the US?

NELSON family from the US?

My father (George Callup Nelson)was apparently born in Drumheller around 1918-1920. His mother (name unknown) died shortly afterwards leaving him and his brother Frank (born approximately 1917-1919)with their father (name unknown). Family rumour has them originally from New Orleans. I seem to be hitting a dead end and was wondering if there was an area in Drumheller that was occupied primarily by black folks? Any help or suggestions on where else to look would be greatly appreciated.
