Name of creator
The Companion Court Maple Leaf no. 842, Independent Order of Foresters was established April 29, 1904 in Strathcona AB. A ‘Companion Court’ was a female unit of the order. The Companion Court was consolidated with Sub. Court South Edmonton No. 1325 on Dec. 26, 1905.
The record book was purchased from Red Baron Flea Market from items declared to be part of the papers of George Francis Downes (a diary of George Francis Downes was purchased at the same time). There is no indication of how the record book might have come into Downes' custody or if it truly was part of Downes' material.
