From your other thread...

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=784216.0

The informant on Flora's death cert is her daughter Mary Kempter.  Looking for BC death cert... found her husband Ferdinand Kempter - he died in 1951.  lists his wife as Mary Teresa Roberts.

dbree posted the 1921 census for this family on your other thread.  It shows the children with their mother and step father ... plus two more children... in LeBret, Saskatchewan.

Thank you very much Runkitty

So now I see that the second Roberts child Mary Clementine Teresa Roberts married Ferdinand Kempter. For her just looking for date and place of marriage for them and date and place of her death.

Any information about the remaining Roberts children Frederick born 1912 Le Bret; Olive born 1914 LeBret and Edith born 1916 LeBret would be appreciated. For them I am primarily interested in dates and places of marriage and who they married; the number of children from their marriages and date and place of death of Frederick, Olive and Edith and their husbands/wives. Don't need any other information about the children of Frederick,Olive and Edith.

To a lesser degree I am interested in the children from the second marriage of Flora Robert to Alexander Desjarlais. It appears from the 1921 census that they had two children (twins) Mabel and Edward born 1919 and from the death records of Ferdinand and Flora there is mention of Beatice Diana Grant who married a Mr Grant first and then Daniel Young. I have from this website the obituary of Beatrice and her 2nd husband but no information about her 1st husband Mr Grant.
From the same source is a child Mary Kempter who you have given her details as Mary Mabel Desjarlais McLean born Lebret March 5,1920 who died July 15,2009. Her obituary gives details about her children but gives no information about her husband (name/year and place of birth and year and place of death).

THANK YOU AGAIN for your assistance.

Some new information about the children of Mr & Mrs Roberts

From census records up to and including 1921 their names were given as Mary, Frederick, Olive and Edith.

The will of their father from 1916 gave them as Mary Theresa Clementine Roberts; Frederick Felix James Roberts; Mary Olive Roberts and Mary Edith Roberts. From the same probate file was a letter dated October 9,1931 regarding an inquiry made with respect to the will of A.F. Roberts-Sykes by "Miss Olive Roberts-Sykes" as to why her fathers estate had not been distributed by the executor.

I hope this helps in searching for the records of these children
