Elwyn Alexander Wyatt Wride born 1888-1956 Cardiff Wales, parents Thomas Wyatt Wride and Mary Mason.  Sometime before World War 1 Elwyn moves to the USA. On the 1920 census Elwyn is single and living in Minnesota with Lawrence H Schroder and Le Roy R Lee, also states that Elwyn came over to the States in 1905.


It appears Elwyn married in 1910 to Esther Welch. They had 2 children. They divorced in 1916.

1911 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVB8-TK5Q


Here is Elwyn, wife Esther & son Cecil immigrating to the US in 1912. Their destination is Esther's father place.

The record also states Elwyn was in the US before. From 1905-1908 he was in Montana, leaving in Sept. 1908. I assume back to Canada.

The family appears on lines 27-29. Images 20 & 21 of the passenger list.
