    From Find-a-grave via Ancestry, 22 May 2016

  • Notes 
    • Arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, 1904 on board the Ionian from Liverpool. Norman was travelling alone and gave his calling as ‘rancher’. In the 1916 Canada census, he says he’s of German origin, and was born at sea in 1878. This is obviously nonsense and I’ve no idea why he did so. I’m definitely dealing with the right person as occupation and all family names, fit. I wonder if it was to dodge the WW1 draft? People with German ancestry may be thought a bit dodgy and if he added a few years to his age, he could have been thought to be too old.
      Norman & Florence must have decided to move to the USA and arrived in Los Angeles in 1921 where they became naturalised US citizens.
