I am trying to trace Clarke's that wereresident in Dauphin Manitoba All of Scottish origin James Clarke (b.1873) Baker/Confectioner married to Elizabeth (Lizzie)Clarke (b.1875) Their children are : James Clarke (b.1899) Herbert Clarke (b.1900) Evelyn Clarke (b.1907) Allan Clarke (b.1909) Ethel Clarke (b.1909) also James Clarke's half brother George Clarke (or Richardson)(b.1868) James and his half brother emigrated from Scotland in 1912 and was followed by Lizzie Clarke and the children in 1913 They appear in the Canadian census 0f 1916, resident in Dauphin, Manitoba By all accounts James Clarke was succesful and had his own Bakers or confectionery business. He later came back to Scotland twice in the late 1950's to trace his family. Unfortunately, this was well before the internet and its only now that we have more information.
James Clarke (b.1873)also had a brother Martin Clarke (b.1884), who migrated to Canada in 1909 at the outbreak of WW1, he enlisted in 1914 into the Canadian Mounted Rifles. He returned and was discharged a Sergeant in the CMR in 1919 and lived in either Manitoba or Saskatchewan. I dont have any further information beyond that. James, Martin and George are my Great Uncles If these names ring any bells with anyone, appreciate if you can contact me
