Lava Hot Springs in the Fall


Linking to Good Fences

I found a new mystery regarding my sneaky old grandfather - He had been released from the Canadian Armed Forces of WWI in Montreal in July 1919 and been back to Chicago before January 1920 because he was in that census record but then, I find him crossing the Canadian border in June of 1920 at Port Huron, MI using his polish name and not the English version so that is why I never looked at that record before - I did not recognize Chester in Polish. He had listed Hamilton, Canada as his home but was heading for Chicago. He must have known hundreds of ways of crossing borders!
