Agree 17 Court Wharf Street but think it's U.S.D. rather than U.S.A.   U.S.D. stands for Urban Sanitary District.  Is it a snip from a certificate?  Do you know which town it was?

Yes, right on the U.S.D. I just automatically saw it as U.S.A. without looking carefully.

Fascinating military file, looks like he was discharged after 2 months. Interesting how Manitoba was incorrectly listed as Minnesota, USA at one point. So was he ever overseas?

Hello xinia

A wee correction, if I may?

In the 1916 census entry for George there is an "O" in the military service column which indicates he was overseas.

It appears he may have lied about his age to join up. I think this is his military file. It is generally VERY slow to download. There are 22 pages in all.

Hi polarbear. I saw that "O" in the 1916 census but thought it was a "C". Wondered why he would be listed on the census as 'on Farm' if he was overseas. Good find on the military file, I couldn't get anywhere with that.

There was also a 1916 Census for the Prairie Provinces. The family is listed in District No. 8 Portage La Prairie, Rosser Municipality:

John Clark 52 - Farmer
Eliza Clark 42
George Clark 17 - Column 2 indicates military service in Canada, Occupation - Laborer? on Farm
Doris Clark 12
Redvers Clark 15

Couldn't find William on this census and the infant daughter born in 1911 is not with the family either.
