Name of creator
Albert Henry Fraser was born in 1872 to Alex and Frances Fraser in Dumfries, York County. He married Mildred (Millie) McLean (b. 1873) on March 9, 1898. Mildred was the daughter of Robert and Annie McLean. Mildred and Albert had eight children: Stanley Moore (1898-1980), Frederick Ross (1900-1985), Ethel Mildred (1902-1967), Cora Elma (1905-1999), Jean M. (1912-1995), Albert Neil (b. 1909), and Percy (1915-2000). Jean married Frank Bemrose in 1934 and they had a son named Ron Bemrose.
Albert and Mildred Fraser helped to found the Riverside Presbyterian Church in Dumfries. At the time of his marriage, Albert identified his religion as Episcopalian. He was a farmer and had one brother named Thomas Fraser who ran a store in Dumfries, York County. Jean Bemrose was the organist of the Riverside Presbyterian Church for most of its active years. Cora attended the Provincial Normal School qualifying as a teacher and then moved to Maine to be trained and licensed as a nurse in 1933. Jean also moved to Maine to be trained as a nurse but did not complete her training.
Ron Bemrose donated this material to Kings Landing in 2007 and it was donated to the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick in 2016.
