  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Undetermined.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: He immigrated with his family in September 1909 and arrived on the Empress of Ireland via Quebec City. Although the provincial voters list indicate he worked in the photographic industry (unverified), the business directories provide no evidence of that kind of employment between 1923 and 1929.
