Did you ever fine that Mahaska place? It is 200 km west of Edmonton and a bit north of Carrot Creek, not on any map.

You can find it by doing a search on "Canada National Archives" and find the link to the Post Office.

backroad mapbook shows it just east of shining bank which is south of whitecourt/mayerthorpe

We were there yesterday looking for the cemetery and had no luck. There were a handful of farms in the area but no identifiable community.

The Master Surname Index (not online) (mostly burials in Alberta cemeteries) of the Alberta Genealogical Society lists some 60 John TAYLOR names;

I check all these for a death of about 1922, but none. And none near the area of Mahaska, which was an old Post Office some 18 miles north of Peers, or about 40 Miles north east of Edson.

For further research please contact the AGS Research Services Committee of the Edmonton Branch,
