I am a research volunteer, not related.
Was his mothers maiden name Burke?
If so, found Ca. death index for
Alvin Bates, b. 9 Dec 1889 Canada
d. 22 Jun 1948 Placer Co.
mmn - Burke
(the 1901 Canada census gives Albans birth date as 9 Dec)
Found where family crossed border going to Detroit May 1920. Wife was listed as Mary L - 4 children
Did the wife return to Canada after Alban left?
Can't find anyone on 1930 census.
The 1940 census is coming out this spring, maybe more can be found then.
Outside chance that you can call Placer Co Library and ask if they can help with newpapers or other info.In the past, I've found there is usually someone who can help. (Gotta ask really nice though!)
