Re: Area Nelson, B.C. person Charles AUSTIN 1917ee on Ancestry.com. It is titled, The Davis Harvey Kirsten tree.
Another source is Charles' death certificate.
Third source is www.digitalarchives.wa.org
Thank you for the links to Beautiful British Columbia, I had already done all that. Was searching for 'Local history'. Local lore. Like, 'what kind of businesses where in production'? What was new? in Nelson, B.C. during that time???
Charles had two kids with my Great Grandma Lucy. One died without issue. No children. Other was my grandmother. Both were born in Oregon.
Terrebonne, Oregon is where Charles was living when 2 kids were born, one in, 1913 & 1915.
Thanks for all the info. I think you had more questions then I did.
Can you tell me one thing, what 'Lumber' Companies were in the Nelson area in the years 1916 to 1917?
Looking for information about Charles Albert Austin in Nelson, B.C. What was he doing in Canada?? Any relatives? Was he a Draft Dodger, some one who went to Canada so he didn't have to be drafted?
