Pearsall; 1910-1916 Halifax, Nova Scotia
Posted by: Kyle Pearsall Date: April 22, 2001 at 07:10:53
  of 646

I am looking for information on William Ora Pearsall, my grandfather, and William Henry Pearsall, his father. William Henry Pearsall and his wife Ellen Walker Pearsall emigrated to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in Canada from Birmingham, England in the early to mid 1910's. William Henry then went back to England to fight in WWI. William Ora Pearsall was born in 1916 in Halifax, before William Henry returned to fight in the war. William Ora married Marguerite Marie Camden.

I am centering my search on Halifax, Nova Scotia. I have been looking for information in military records and ships' passenger lists.

Does anyone have any information on these people or their wives?
