As per Stella's e-mail, I looked up the Red Deer, AB. book called Sod Shacks and Wagon Tracks. The William (Bill) Ramsey in there is not the right one for Jan. This Bill Ramsey was born in 1887 in Ontario and came to Alberta in 1906. His wife's name was Grace Johnson and he was a bricklayer.
I have the book, which covers the area NW of Red Deer, if anyone needs a look up at any time.

According to my Alberta index of "Local Histories Listed by Place Names" there is mention of 'Inglis' in two Local History Book.

Inglis was Post Office at section 5-28-3-W5, the same place where William F. RAMSEY had his homestead, some 13 miles north of Cochrane.

Maybe he is mentioned in one of these Local History Books that also includes Cochrane.
Acres and Empires: A History of Municipal District of Rocky View, 1989.
Big Hill Country: Cochrane and area,1977, includes Inglis.
One Days Journey, 1963, includes Inglis.
People and Places by Pearl, 1978.
Taming the Prairie Wool: A history of the Districts, 1965.

I do not see William F. or Lottie RAMSEY in any of the Alberta cemeteries.
