Walter Daniel | WWI, Quebec | Evelyn In Montreal
Margaret Blank requested information about Reginald Walter Daniel and Amy Bunce Daniel, who might have originally come from England. Walter died in WWI and was buried in France. They had three offspring (Harold, Ivor and Reginald).
This family is in the 1911 census which states that Daniel Walter and Amy, as well as their first son H. Harold were all born in England, whereas the last son Ivor (?) Alfred was born in Quebec. It also states that they emmigrated to Canada in 1907 and that they were Anglicans. If you haven’t used the census before, note that you can consult the typed index, but then you should hit the ‘split screen’ tab at the top where you will find the original document and LOTS more info!
