Hello, My GrandFather Edward South was born In Oldham
England in 1889. He was one of 22 children of John and Lisa (Smith)South. Edward had a twin that died an infant. He came
over to NB Canada sometime between 1890 and 1907. He met my
grandmother Lillian L. Norton and they married in 1912.
Edward was in the Canadian Army during WW1 and was wounded
twice. His brother Pte George South (Reg 69946, 26 Batallion) was kill in action in Belgum during WW1. When
they came to NB Canada, They settled in St John's NB Canada
then migrated to the USA in 1923 with 3 children, Edward,
William and James. They Settled in Saugus Massachuetts.
Note that his brother George was also of Erin Street City in NB Canada, so they may have migrated to Canada as a family. I don't have much on Edwards parents and sibling.
Any help is much appreciated.
