Hi Sunscreen,

I have a friend that lives near St T. I will ask him if he will do some queries for you and perhaps take a picture of the address. If he is unavailable to do so I will be travelling there myself in late spring and then I can do that then when I'm visiting family in the area :-) You may have to send me a reminder though - my seniors' moments are getting more frequent...lol

A couple more questions for you. Did Jackson move to Canada/St Thomas with his parents and did they stay? Who purchased the home - parents or Jackson & Leone? Did his brother Malcolm go to St T as well? Which Elmwood Cemetery are you refering to - in St T? Sorry for so many questions, but getting answers for them may help in answering yours :-)

Cheers, JDC

Hi again sunshine,

I googled the St Thomas address and you can see the home they lived in. It has since turned into a commercial place since. Here is the link:
 http://maps.google.ca/maps?hl=en&cp=24&gs_id=22&xhr=t&q=130+centre+st+st+thomas&gs_upl=&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1280&bih=617&wrapid=tljp1328123041034048&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x882e5e678204d7e5:0xa627ec2edeb4d03c,130+Centre+St,+St+Thomas,+ON+N5R+2Z7&gl=ca&ei=tYwpT-zCDeT40gGI-MmyAg&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&ct=title&resnum=1&sqi=2&ved=0CB4Q8gEwAA

Click on the picture and your should be able to move it around to see the biulding on the corner - that is 130 Centre.

Coincidently, this place is close to where my g-grandmother lived after my g-grandfather passed - just a few short blocks away :-)

Cheers again,

JDC

Hi Sunscreen,

I haven't been able to get in touch with my friend but will keep on trying. I am looking forward to getting your PM.

Hi Sunscreen,

I haven't forgotten you, I'm still attempting to call my buddie regarding your Jackson family in St T.. Guess we are playing telephone tag :-( Anyway, it does sound like Leone/Lee is a war bride. Here is a link that may be useful for you: http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/history/secondwar/warbrides.

Hoping this helps.
