My grandfather, James Aston Moore Jr. was born in Three Hills on 21 August 1913 to the above parents. I am looking for information on either parent.
According to family history, James Sr. was a grain broker or trader in town. Upon his death, his widow Ethel and her sons James and George W. left for California in 1916 on the Great Northern Railway from Calgary. The naturalization records I have for my grandfather lists his last residence in Canada as Vancouver, but the entry point listed is in eastern Washington state, which is seemingly contradictory.
Information of either the Moore or Warren families in Central Alberta would be greatly appreciated. This is one of the only parts of my tree where I've hit a dead end. Perhaps the fact that this would have been under the Northwest Territories at the time and had less than perfect record-keeping? Would most residents of this period have been settlers from Eastern Canada?
