Thank you for the treasure-trove of information you have found on my great-uncle's family!

I don't think so - the write-up is about Rev. Jamie Buckingham.

We were posting about young Ernest at the same time!

My goodness!    Thank you for all your work on our behalf!

Their son, whom Archibald named after his brother, my grandfather, died in the Second World War at the age of 20.

Thank you for being so gracious!
So far there has been only one new discovery in the obituaries - the one for Archibald.  The others are my mother, my aunts and my grandfather.  It would be amazing if we could track down any of Archibald's descendants!

Good heavens - you kind people must think me the most ungrateful person ever!  I haven't been back here since I last posted (June of last year), and coming in today I find all kinds of information!  Yes, the Archibald you found is my great-uncle.  He apparently lied about his age when he went to the U.S., as in fact he was two years older than my grandfather.  It is awfully sad to think that he ended up in Portland, just 312 miles from where Grandpa and most of our family lived.
I wonder if any of his descendants are still in the area.  My two brothers both still live in Vancouver and Iím sure they would love to contact any relatives.
The marriage certificate is my parents, and the obituary for my mother Marie is the one I wrote for her.
Thank you so much, Sandra and RunKitty!

Somewhere I have seen that he (Archibald) landed - I've connected with numerous sites, including the BHC Advocacy and Research Association on Facebook/

I was hoping to find out anything about my great-uncle.  He and my grandfather were separated and never saw each other again.  They were British Home Children, and organizations connected to that group have nothing on him after he arrived in Canada.

I didn't realize that you don't hold records.  Sorry to have bothered you!
