He died relatively young from tuberculosis He and all other members of his family are buried in Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa. His internment says that he had been living in London, Ontario before his death. I wonder with whom?

She died when she was only 20 years old. As I recall it, dad said that she became a nurse who, when working in the USA contracted TB. She returned to her parents' home in Ottawa where she died. The internment record agrees as she is shown to have been a nurse in training in Denver Colorado. Why Denver? As far as I know, we had no family there.

Again, according to that clipping sent by Austin, this family was living in Calgary in 1922. This is consistent with the 1921 census which has him living at 1623 11th Avenue South, with Helen, John M., and Reid. He was a mechanic and she was a nurse. He was also there in the 1916 census,

My notes say that Kenneth and Reid Forrest died while small. But when his aunt Marie Timms/Proctor died in 1969, he was noted as being alive and living in Calgary. I must look at a directory for that year.
As well, in a letter dated March 15, 1937, from Verda Timms, she refers to Reid going to school. So presumably he was still alive then. Oddly she also speaks of him preferring his fetter's family over his mother's.

According to the newspaper clipping sent by Austin, the Proctors were living in Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1922. Also the Timms family bible has his middle initial as "N".
There is a James N. Proctor in the 1930 US census for Denver Colorado. He was born in Canada. He was 38 years old and came to the US in 1914. How is it that Marie met him in Colorado or him her in Michigan?

His parents lived in London when he was born. At that time, William Russel was working on the PUC as a lineman. They moved to Blanchard in April 1925 when William Russel started framing again. They stayed until 1955 when they moved to St. Marys where he worked for the mill - "Great Star Flour" - and then Ontario Hog Producers; he never retired before he died. Austin first worked on the farm and for other farmers and then at Richardson's Foundry in St. Marys (they did stainless steel and black iron.) Next he went to St. Marys Cement until 1955, when he bought the first farm and took "second" job at Hutton Transport. He drove a truck for St. Marys and Hutton. He drove both cement and whiskey. He was forced to "quit" his job at Hutton in order to qualify for a mortgage from the Farm Credit Union to buy the second farm but worked there again after a short period. He kept both jobs until 1982 when he went to Carson Transport. He was there until he retired in 1992. He sold the farms in 1973 and moved to the house just outside Bryanston.

Jackie Halterman sent me a note which she made after visiting the museum in St. Marys. She found a book called "The Tweedsmuir Book" to which the Haley family tree had been donated by Mrs. Jack German of London (my father's aunt.) Apparently, on page 139 of Volume 1, it states that Bert Wiseman purchased the west half of Lot 29, Conc. 5 (4th Line), West Nissouri Township, from Albert Haley. He was a uncle of Clara Haley who married Bert Wiseman.
