Hi Jo-ann. Not related but on a hunch I checked out - Hendersons NW Gazeteer and Directory - Rural Communities Only. Under "New Oxley" (no longer in existance) in southern Alberta and found: Winder Ranche Co. Another listing - "Immigrants to Canada - Extracts of 1887 Pertaining to Settlement in the West (NWT)" Name of Lessee - Winder Ranche Co. 50,000 acres. There is a Winder family in the area and listed as ranchers in the census, not farmers as is usual. Hope this is the one. Yours truly, Gail R.
