Hello fellow Badger. My name is William Barry Badger. I live in Toronto, Canada, and I am searching for long lost relatives. It’s my father’s side of the family that I am having trouble finding. Before my mother died, she gave me a couple of old letters that I was able to extract a little information from. His name was William Joseph Badger. He was born Dec. 8 1909 in New Castle, Pennsylvania, USA. He joined the Canadian Armed Forces Nov. 23 1940 in Toronto, Canada and was discharged Dec 27, 1944. While here in Toronto he married my mother Dorothy Elliston. From what I can gather, he went back home to the USA around 1947. These names and places were mentioned in the letters. Lou Badger (father ?) Katherine Badger (mother ?) Mr. Lew Badger (brother ?) (Edna, Lew’s wife ?) Mrs. Catherine Badger Mrs. Doris Loughland and Hugh (husband ?) Aunt Sara, John, Olive Griffiths, Aunt Liz, Nett 12563 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, Ohio 3084 San Marino St., Los Angeles, Cal. 108 W Newmark Ave, Monterey Park, Cal.
That’s about all the information I have on him so if any of it means anything to you, or any of the older members of your family, I would really like to hear from you. If you have anything for me, you can reach me at ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’
