    Biographical history

    Marie Louise Facette was born August 15, 1887; she was the daughter of Cyril and Albina (Jonas) Facette. Louise married Cornelius (Neilie) Burton on May 9, 1905 in Parnell County, Minnesota. The Burtons, along with their two sons, came to Alberta from Wisconsin in 1908; they settled west of Edmonton, Alberta, in what would become known as Burtonsville. There, Louise ran the post office and ran a small store. Louise and Neilie had five children: Eugene Frances, born February 14, 1906; Roland Cornelius, born August 29, 1907 (died February 15, 1930); Milton Roy, born May 10, 1909; Viola Dorcina, born December 22, 1910; and Ivy Catherine, born June 26, 1912 (died September 1915). In 1919, the family moved to Brightbank, Alberta. In 1923, they moved to Waterways, Alberta, where Louise operated a boarding house, a small store and the post office; the Burtons later built and operated the Waterways Hotel. After briefly living in Edmonton, the family moved to Alberta Beach, Alberta in June of 1933. Louise and Neilie lived at Alberta Beach until 1965, when they moved to Victoria, British Columbia. Neilie died April 8, 1967. Louise Burton died June 1, 1973.
