WOW!

How do you do it?......get all the information and remember what you have already researched

It's such a sad story though.....he died at 30,1917 and his younger brother Frederick  died aged 24 in 1918. I wonder how that must have affected him when he was fighting in France knowing his brothers wife and young children were mourning their husband/ father.....I imagine that they would have been close having 'found' each other again in Canada and then undertaking a farming project together.

The grave stone says 30, the death certificate says age...28..... Any idea for the
discrepancy ?....or ' just one of those things'

Thank you    Emm
