Erickson, Albin

Albin Erickson, the third of 5 siblings, was born in Manville AB (circa 1917 to 1922) to parents Peter and Mary (Berg) who were immigrants from Sweden. Peter wanted to own land in the north, and took homestead in Northfield AB. In 1926 the whole family with all their belongings moved to Sexsmith, where they lived in the Haugseth house for one year. They built a house on their homestead, and the children went to the Northfield school. During WW II Albin joined the forces and went overseas. Discharged in 1945, Albin returned to Canada and resumed farming. He married Lois, and they had 2 daughters. Albin died in 1974, and Lois lived in Fairview AB afterwards.
