Do you know about the 2 Volume publications "Index to Registrations of Births, Marriages and Deaths 1870 to 1905" available at the AGS Edmonton Branch Library. In the Volume 1 John & Adelaide are listed for the birth of 3 children.
The St Albert Catholic has an Archive section. Ask the AGS Edmonton Branch Research Committee about this. http://www.agsedm.edmonton.ab.ca/
