YOUNG, George Harold

1090 Pte Canadian Divisional Mounted Troops 8th Bn. b1891 Padley Wood, Hathersage. 1901C he was in Croydon and 1911C in London. He then emigrated to Canada in 1913. He received his discharge papers on 30/5/1919 in France. From there he went back to the UK and to his wife, Margaret Alma Mann, (whom he had married in Feb 1919, presumably while on leave) and to his sister and Mother, who were living in Essex. Then, with his wife, he went to the US/Canada?  They were certainly around Buffalo NY because he was granted a divorce there in 1927, approximately five years after Margaret went missing, presumed dead. (There was a suggestion she had fallen over Niagara Falls?). George certainly believed her to be dead. He ended up in Savannah Georgia USA. In 1928 (a year after his divorce), he married Mrytis Garfield of Savannah. In WW2 he still lived in Savannah Georgia, as part of the security services, which was all apparently a bit mysterious. His sister Jessie also went to Canada and farmed there. His other sister Margaret was also born in Hathersage. Their father was a railway civil engineer / tunnel manager. There is much more detail of him on the website..
