I am searching for additional information about James Whitford, my great-grandfather. A note from E Young on Genforum indicates his father was Donald Whitford and mother was Marguerite "Peggy" Cayen or Paul. He was married to Mary Hebert (granny Whitford) July 12 1889 in Pincher Creek Alberta, Canada. I have a lot of written and verbal information about my great-grandmother Mary "Granny" Whitford.
I am hoping to obtain confirmation that James's parents are indeed as indicated, Donald and Marguerite, or if not, who his parents are. I have been to his gravesite at Beauvais Lake and his grave marker indicates he died in 1939. I am told he was 85 at the time of his passing. Is there confirmation that he obtained Metis scrip? Does anyone have birth records? Thanks for any assistance that can be provided.
