Hello,the only thing close to that abreviation would be "fb" it stands for french breed and "Cree Fb" it stands for cree and french breed,Thats Cree indian,this is just a guess but i think maybe the census taker abriviated the cree part and put "cfb" insted of "cree fb"
1901 census

Please note that the following terms were used by the enumerators in 1901 and do not reflect current usage when describing a person's background.

"Race" column:

w:white (Caucasian)r:red (Native)b:black (African)y:yellow (Asian)"Racial/tribal origin" column:

The use of "breed" and "half-breed" indicated a person of mixed Native and other background as noted in the following examples that were used at that time:

Fb:French breedEb:English breedSb:Scottish breedIb:Irish breedOb:other breedCree fb:Cree and French breed
