Ernest Frederick BREACH was born 8 Oct 1900 in Hansboro, North Dakota. The 1916 Canadian Census shows that Ernest was living in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. Sometime later, he moved to Calgary, then to Edmonton.

Uncle Ernie served overseas in the RAF. He was a mechanic.

Ernest married Marguerite. They had no children. She was previously married, possibly twice (?) with children.

By 1976, he was living at:
8924 - 142nd Street, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He died in Feb of 1983 in Edmonton, a widower.

Marguerite (surname unknown) was born 21 Sept 1907. Her first marriage date (?) was 22 June 1927.

From a letter just recently found from June of 1958, the following names are linked by his wife's former marriage(s?):

Ernest "George" Lake b 16 March 1928 (married Mary Pauline)
Marguerite Lake b 31 August 1930 (married HELPS)
Mary Pauline___ b 11 June 1931
James Robert Helps
Shirley________/Breach b 2 Sept 1930
Randall George Lake b 20 Oct 1954
Bobby Lake b 30 April 1957
Kenneth James Helps b 17 July 1952
Dianne Louise Helps b 4 April 1955
From my mother's address book from 1976, it shows:
Shirley (Breach) and Robert Drabot and Allen
10125 143rd Street
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, then

106 Surrey Gardens
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
[This is Uncle Ernie's step-daugher.]

Also shown is:
Rev. Tom Rayment and Shirley
403 84th Street
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, then

11424 - 71st Avenue
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Mr. Helen Rayment
8924 142nd Street
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
[Was this Uncle Ernie's mother-in-law, living with him in 1976?]

Note as of Dec 2012 ~ trying to sort through this new information, based on the findings of this family letter of 1958.
Further note ~ DRABOT may be spelled as DROBOT.

I AM LOOKING TO FIND more information about Marguerite ____BREACH born 1907, and the above mentioned related names of LAKE, HELPS, DROBOT, and RAYMENT.
