Notes from Viola Lee:
My great grandfather (William Lee) and my grandfather (Robert Lewis Le e) with some of my grandfather, Robert's brothers homesteaded in the Y ellow Grass area of Saskatchewan. My grandfather returned to the State s in 1907 and returned to Saskatchewan later (I'm not sure when as m y father and siblings were all born in Saskatchewan. My father alway s claimed he was born at Axford, SK, but his mother put down Forward , SK for his birth certificate. I'm not sure when they moved to the fa rm at Erskine, AB or for how long before he and my grandmother moved t o Salmon Arm). My Dad remained on the farm and visited his parents i n Salmon Arm in the winter and that's where he met my mother, meetin g Uncle Bus and Grandpa (Hugh) McBurney first as they were visiting m y Aunt Jean Chalmers. My mother had moved to Salmon Arm also and was w orking there. My parents lived at the farm at Erskine after they wer e married and moved to a farm at Lacombe, AB in April 1963. In May 197 1 just before my grandmother passed away, my parents moved into a hous e in Innisfail, AB. Dad worked at the Innisfail Auction Mart until h e retired.
