Albert and Edith Johnson, along with their son Charles, born in 1921 and daughter Margaret born in 1923, moved to Canada from the States in 1928. Albert bought 17 acres of land from Matt Bitango and built his family a house. He drove truck for North Star Oil Company and delivered gas all over Southern Alberta. Charles (Chuck) didn't go to White School because of poor health - he spent a lot of time in the Red Cross Hospital in Calgary.
Margaret attended White School for Grades 7, 8, and 9. She told us she had a crush on Wilson McKenzie, the principal. In 1940 Margaret married Doug Irwin. They have two children. They also have four grandchildren and one great grandson.
Margaret and Doug lived for a short time on the Cecil Place and their son went to White School for a short time in the spring of 1947. They moved into Lethbridge and bought a home. Margaret passed away May 1994, Doug in 1995.
