Hello I am trying to find out any information about my grandfather Joseph Thomas Benson. I do know that he was from St John born around 1891. I know that he Married a Amy Briggs (Do not know where or when they were married) They had 8 kids in Nova Scotia and he died in Spryfield Nova scotia on the 23 Mar 1955. I do not know who his parents where or if he had any brothers or sisters.
Other information unclear if it is about him
Joseph Benson was in Newfoudland Navy WW1 1914-1918 Number 1435X. Listed as a volunteer for the royal naval reserve No 4 Ward #6602 and lived at 53 cook's street.
Was told he served as a guard for the queen in england at one time.
Thank you for any help you can provide me and my family in this search
