    some time later in the 1920s
    after my grandfather CHARLES had emigrated to Canada
    he would visit a Samuel JONES family of Medicine Hat Alberta
    Samuel Jones wife was a relative of my grandfather Charles
    Her name from the Madicine Hat cemetery records was Emma or Ella

    by more instinct than fact
    I believe she may have been the Emma Cullwich from the LEDBROOK family, daughter of EDWIN & PHOEBE CULWICK
