On the way to see a church in Frains, Alberta I found this spot. There is nothing in Frains except a church and the remains of an old hall across the road..
This is an old homestead. In the front is a solitary grave. The headstone reads:
1932 - 1933
Holy Child of God Pray for Us
When I got down the road to the church I managed to strike up a conversation with a older farmer who was hauling bales and parked at the side of the road waiting for a tractor to catch up to him. I asked him about the house. He told me there were a number of unmarked and solitary graves in the area. This was before there was a church and people were buried on the land. The church at Frains, which is just down the road, was built later.
Life was tougher back then.
A friend of mine who found this place earlier this year has a great post about it.
