We are researching my wife's grandfather, Harold MOUBERT. We
can document the following info from his military attestation
Born Liverpool, England - Oct 5 1878
Joined C.E.F - Oct 1914, Discharged Apr 1919
Died Moose Jaw, SA - Dec 16 1936
Occupation - Clerk - no idea who employer may have been.
Addresses of 47 Hochelaga in 1914 and 245 Hochelaga in 1919.
Query 1 - is it possible to find out where he is buried. Where could we find out?
Query 2 - We have a pocket watch inscripted with his name and the words "Plaxton" and "Spraxton Jewelers, Moose Jaw 1902. Would anyone familiar with Moose Jaw history have any idea if there was such an establishment or the meaning of the inscriptions. Our research has turned up a "Plaxton Lake" but no idea as to any connection.
As a note of interest I have a 32 page picture book that I discovered in my grandfather's (Hayes)momentos a few years ago titled "Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan" The inside title page has the title " Interesting scenes in and around Moose Jaw Saskatchewan". The book is published by Lewis Rice, Illustrator and Publisher for Western Canada. The latest copyright date I can find is 1908. The cover is soft heavy brown paper while the inside pages are shiny paper with black and white photos. I wouldn't think there are too many of these left in existence. Wonder what it's worth.

of 1920 heading for Mr. Alexander Scott's property in Willow Bunch.
He was from Monikie, Angus County, Scotland. Think I have the
right region for Willow Bunch, it is near the US border and I
think fits the Moose Jaw Region. Just a long shot that he might
appear somewhere. Can't track him in Scotland so made the assumption
he stayed in Canada.

I need help, any kind of help. Here's what I know.
Olaf Brandstrom b 12/1/1857 Bygdea, Sweden immigrated to the
US 1882 m Christine ? b 9/1864 Sweden, immigrated to US 1888.
They married abt 1886. Had 5 children in Minnesota 4 living in
1900, Ida, Herbert, Arthur, and Amy. Olaf and Christine were
December 18, 1915, last foreign residence Saskatchewan, Canada.
Herbert Brandstrom naturalized November 14, 1916, last foreign
residence Saskatchewan, Canada. On both of the naturalization
record it states that their arrival to the US was on the Canadian
Pacific Railway to North Portal in North Dakota. Talking to Herbert's
son, he remembers that his father had homesteaded in Canada and
remembers him mentioning these places, Regina, Swift Current,
Drinkwater, Moose Jaw. I'm thinking he homesteaded in the Regina
- Drinkwater area. Herbert went to Canada to do trapping for the
Canadian Government. We think, since he went to Canada to work
for the government, he gave up his US citizenship, and had to
be naturalized when he returned to the US. I find Olaf (Olof),
Christine (Kristine), and Herbert (Hurbert) in the 1900, 1905,
and 1920 census in Minnesota. I haven't been able to look in the
1910 census yet, but will. However, I think they were in Canada
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
