American looking to locate relatives in Ponoka

Dear Editor;

I am trying to locate any relatives of John and May Lee, whom I believe resided in Ponoka, Alberta. John was a brother of my grandmother, Ella Pulhamus, and he had moved to Canada from Nebraska when he was a young man. I believe that he died somewhere in the years of 1966 to 1970. I think that he and his wife had 13 children, so I think it likely that a few of them may still reside in the Ponoka area. I would be a great-niece of his, and my family has always lived in LaCygne, Kansas. I would like to locate anyone in this family—if anyone has knowledge of this family, I would certainly appreciate your help.
