Searching for information on and/or descendants of John A. McCall, my grand-uncle. He was born in Minnesota about September 1873, and appears in the 1880 Minnesota census living with his parents and siblings in Kalmar Olmsted County. My family 'lore' has said that he and his brother James moved to Canada.
From the Provincial Archives of Alberta, I located John's homestead as the southeast 1/4 of Section 2, Township 57, Range 11 west of 4th meridian. Records show he obtained entry in July 1903, and the land patent was issued in his name in July 1908. The homestead records state he lived on the homestead with his wife and 3 children, and was also a butcher in Innisfree.
Attached is a photograph of his wife. On the back of the photo, she wrote "Mrs. Jno. A. McCall of Innisfree, Alberta". Date of photo is not known.
Any information on this family will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Mike Carroll
