My dad went to school in Emerson.
Then the all moved to Flin Flon, (Northern Manitoba) and there children got married and raised there families there.
I knew of then up till the age of 8, of my Aunts & Uncle.
Then my parents moved to Northern BC, later his brother and sister did to. The rest stayed in Flin FLon; except on Aunty Vicky she moved to Pasadena California and had a motel and restaurant there. But she is gone now and her children.
They say he (I'am not sure who they mean when they say that : William Andrew or William James) had other brothers and there in Eastern USA they are policemen.....don't know any names )
That would be interesting to know, what part of the states there living in and what Police Station they work for?
