    Naam van de archiefvormer


    Charles Rodberg (1867-1917) was born in Brussels, Belgium. He arrived in Canada from Belgium in 1892, with four others, with the intention of raising horses. He filed for a homestead, the northwest quarter of section 24, Township 46, Range 23, West of the 4th Meridian (NW-24-46-23-W4) in 1895. Charles married Geraldine Roy in about 1897.

    Geraldine Roy (1874-1964) was born in Saint-Boniface, Manitoba. She came to the North-West Territories in 1887 with her father, George Roy (1846-1932), her mother Mathilda Langevin (1850-1932) and her sisters Mary Mathilde Georgina (Prince, then Savoie) (1873-1957) and Marie Blanche Antoinette (Royal) (1877-1961). George Roy was the first land registrar in Edmonton and held this position for twenty-seven years. He built one of the first private residences in Edmonton, at 10007-105 Street, which he lived in until his death in 1932. Georgina married Antonio Prince (d. 1906) in 1891 and remarried after his death. Marie Antoinette married Jules A. Royal in 1894.

    The Rodbergs lived near Gwynne, North-West Territories (later Alberta). The home served as a store and the post office (initially named Diana in honour of their first daughter; this was changed to Gwynne in 1906). Charles and Geraldine had seven children: Diana (Turgeon) (1898-1964), Liliane (1900-1965), Roxane (Voyer) (1901-1990), Ruby Solange (1903-1988), Charles Joseph (1906-1986), Francis "Frank" (1910-1988) and Leonie (Armstrong) (1915-1999). For a number of years, Belgium immigrant Emile Jacmard lived with the family and worked on the homestead. The family then moved to Wetaskiwin, and later to Edmonton.
