Thomas MacDonald (abt1892-1967) Canada's 19th Battalion Infantry
« on: Saturday 03 March 18 23:40 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
I'm hoping to find any information on my great grandfather Thomas MacDonald.
He was a Machinist who worked for Firestone in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
Some people in my family say he came over with his family from Scotland when he was a boy and others claim he was much older and met his wife on the boat coming over.
He served in Canada's 19th infantry battalion and fought and was wounded in the battle of Somme. His wifes name was Jean but all I know about the last name is that it was short..... very helpful I know. She was also much younger than him, at least 15 years.
He was a member of many choirs including a Welsh choir which competed in Utica, NY where they came in second.
He said that he traveled the world going to North and South Africa, China, Japan and other countries surrounding the Mediterranean.
They were very much Catholic 4 boys and 2 girls.
Cecelia Mary MacDonald(also went by Sheila) 1931 - 1985
Dennis MacDonald
Marylou MacDonald
Patrick MacDonald
Harry MacDonald
Thomas MacDonald
This is unfortunately all that my family collectively knows so if anyone could shed some light on this I would be incredibly grateful.
Thanks in advance!
Trevor
