Surnames: GRIMES, CHURCH
Looking for any help finding info on Austin or Osten Deazro GRIMES born 1875 in Mina, New York. According to a letter dated April 21, 1926, he was living at Balzac working for a George Church. I think it was a farm or ranch as he was a Barn Manager in the 1910 census.

Thanks a million, Mac, CA

Austin Grimes, machinist, signed up for WW I giving his b.d. as 13 Nov 1876 in NYC. and Mrs. Orpha Grimes (sister) of Newburg, N. D as next of kin. He signed up 15 Dec 1915 in Calgary, Alberta.
see:http://www.collectionscanada.ca/archivianet/02010602_e.html

I don't know if this is him or not but in Cadillac : prairie heritage pg. 300 it says:
Owen and Austin Grimes came from Langman, Saskatchewan. They purchased the S 1/2 15-6-0-13 and farmed for a few years before they sold their land to Remy Bourtin. They had a pool hall and a Dodge car agency in Ponteix. They returned to Lampman.

Likewise for this reference:
The Nose Creek Story from 1792 pg. 142
Passersby:
"Scotty" Morrison, George Scott, Austin Grimes - all good horsemen and dependable assistants in mixed farming.

Thanks so very much. The first one was indeed my Austin Grimes. We had no idea he had a Canadian connection. That has already opened up some new information for us. Thanks a million, Mac- O.R.G.

My great grandfather is George Church from Balzac. I will check with my gradmother who is 96 if she remembers him and let you know.
