1677High River & Frankburg, cemetery recording
- Jun 4, 2003Candice,
Thanks for information about Frank and the cemetery. I'll send a separate
e-mail with some questions. -- Elizabeth
Frankburg had a post office at the time of 1906 census. Discovered the
Frankburg location name in the online High River newspapers for June 1906.
Found the family I was looking for in sub-district 3 who boarded the teacher
for Blackie in the 1920s. Blackie post office opened 1911 and the Blackie
cemetery is on the AFHS CD-ROM.
