Charles moved from Saskatoon out to the land alloted to them, built a sod hut and lived there.The house cat knocked over an coal oil lamp could this be the fire you spoke of?
Charles was a bridge builder with Northern Alberta Railways, was retired at 70 without a pension.
He moved with his daughter ADA to Vancouver, without his wife who did not want to go and did not mind if her husband left.
In the second world war Charles lied about his age and was able to get a job in the shipyards.After the war he was again out of work and His son Bill, urged him to move to eastern california and live with him, which he did. Eventually he needed around the clock care and moved into a nursing home where he died just before reaching his 100th birthday.
hope this is helpful, managed to get the information from my dad's cousin in Canada.
Can you give me more details on Charles sister, parents etc. particularly his mother and her family?
