Kydd and Barr families

Kydd and Barr families

I'm researching Albert Addison KYDD. He was born Nov 29, 1897, place unknown. The last I've been able to locate was a mention in his fathers obituary Oct 30, 1947 which says Addison lives in Porquis Junction.

Can anyone suggest what other resources might be available to further trace Addison? Possibly find a death record or burial?

I have found the following:
Addision is in 1901 census with family in Gravenhurst, Ontario.
Addison not located in 1911. His father, William R. Kydd is in 1911 census with 3 daughters in Parry Sound but Addison cannot be found.

In 1916 his WW1 Attestation Paper says he lives in Parry Sound.

28 Dec 1921 he married Mary Barr, living Nellie Lake, d/o Edward Barr and Josphine.

Then in 1947 he is in Porquis Junction.

Is anyone else researching this family? Any suggestions to trace Addison Kydd after 1921 would be appreciated.

thanks,
Lyn

There are some Kydds listed in Iroquois Falls. May be relations.

He seemed to have stayed in the same area -Nellie Lake/Porquis Junction/Iroquois Falls

This is before 1921 but likely his sister's death in Parry Sound.

It doesn't look like any of the children of Wm and Emily were registered at birth.
