US Border Crossing
Matthew Adams, 42, born in Scotland
arriving Detroit 24 May 1924, occupation: section hand, Scottish, reads English,
last permanent residence: Ingersoll
nearest relative in Canada: Friend James Adams, Charles St E, Ingersoll, Ontario
final destination: Detroit

- so the street he was headed to in 1921 would be Charles, not Charlotte. I didn't look to see if there was a Charlotte St in Ingersoll or not.
