Hi, You have an amazing amount of information.
Is this from the Adoption Record?

Alice Josephine KOESTER has probably married.
It is possible that if so, her husband and any children are unaware of the births.

She was just 18 & 21 when she gave birth to the children.
In those days - many girls gave up their babies -the babies fathers may not have been willing to raise the children. or there may have been other circumstances.
Unmarried -Pregnancy /birth was at most times secret. sometimes - even family members not being aware of same.
Womens situations were much different - than today. Things started to change in the late 1960's -

Have you posted a message to any of the boards for SASKATCHEWAN?

Have you searched the Online White Pages Directory MyTelus.com

Have you registered - with any of the Parent/Sibling finder agencies.
