     Teressa Moe was born in March 1871 at Ontario.1 She was the daughter of Husted Moe and Christina Cook.1 She married George C. S. Paterson on 25 November 1896 at Dewdney (Okotoks), Alberta.1 From the Collingwood Bulletin of December 11, 1896, page 6, col. 3,
Paterson - Moe At St. Luke's Presbyterian church, Dewdney, Alta., on Nov. 25th, by Rev. G.S. Scott, Geo. C.S. Paterson, of Dewdney, to Teressa, youngest daughter of Capt. N. (H.) Moe, of Collingwood, Ont.

From the following, it would appear that by the time of Teressa's wedding Dewdney was already archaic as the name of the community.

Okotoks was originally known as Dewdney, named after Lord Dewdney. Lord Dewdney was a lieutenant governor of the Northwest Territiories, asthe area was called at that time. In 1886 the town changed its name to Okotoks, an Indian name meaning 'Big Rock'.

The names of the Paterson children and most birth information is fromthe 1911 Canadian census taken at Okotoks, Alberta. It is of some interest to note that the spelling of Teressa's name seems to be consistent. The spelling of her grandmother Moe's name has been all over the board, but I believe that this will have been correct for her grandmother as well.1
