Burrells in Drumheller circa 1966

Classification: Query
I have a family relative who was resident in Drumheller in 1966 known as Archie (Archibald) Burrell. Archie was of Scottish descent being born in Lanark, Lanarkshire, Scotland around 1905. He travelled to Coleman, Alberta, with his father John back in late 1921. His mother three sisiters and other brother travelled to meet up with John and Archie in 1923.

I have no idea what he did for a living or when he would first have gone to Drumheller. His sister (Helen) married a Dave Young who was the manager of Coleman Mine, among others, back in the 30s and 40s.

If you know of anyone in the town who may know anything about Archie or his family I'd be obliged to hear from them just to get some understanding of what he did and how the family have dispersed.

My e-mail address is

Thanks for anything you can give me.
