We are really searching for George SALTER, b. Oct. 25th, 1892, @ 156 Kirkgate, Wakefield, Yorkshire, England.He was a British Home Child, came to Canada with a Dr. Barnardo group, arriving at Quebec 1903.
The next we hear of him he is a lodger with John NELSON, probably on a farm near Claresholm, Alberta.On the 1901 automated genealogy, the NELSON family included the following members: John - head - age 44 Mary - wife - age 36 William - son - age 15 John - son - age 14 Ivan - son - age 11 Rhoda - daughter - age 10 Alvin - son - age 6 Loran - son - age 5 Oneta - daughter - age 3 Nelson Blandevon - daughter - age 1 Plus SALTER, George - lodger - age 9
At some period in time George SALTER & Ivan NELSON joined the US army during WW1.The NELSON family were originally from the States.......no info. as to location.
We would appreciate assistance to find this NELSON family, then hopefully learn more about George SALTER.Thank you.
