If you look at this URL for Wallace Wellington Corkum of Scots Bay you'll find 5 pages of documents noted that you can view but there is a charge for a copy. It will be explained on the web site. I found you can enlarge the document to see if it contains information that you are willing to pay money for. There is a notice that you have to agree to before viewing the data. There is info there about his service discharge and his late registration of birth.

Thank You to all that responded with information on Wallace Corkum. Most of the information was what i had, but i didn't have the name of his second wife and or his baby, but had heard that he had two sons, Ken and Don . Do you have a site to look up marriages and deaths? I would like to find out his death date and any family he might have. My grandfather Benjamin passed away in 1989 at the age of 96, so am trying to find out more about Wallace and Howard, to add to my family tree.

Thanks again

Shirley

Ontario BMDs are on Ancestry but marriages are only available up to 1924 and deaths to 1934.

The Toronto Star archives are online and they could have an obituary for Wallace or other family members, but I don’t have a subscription. Maybe someone can do a search for you or you can buy a sub for as little as one hour ($3.95).

Hello,Cousin
My grandfather was Benjamin, brother to your grandfather. It is nice to hear about new relatives. I am researching about our great grandparents,also. Sometimes there are a lot of brickwalls. Could you tell me the date of your grandfather's passing, please, his children and their birthdates and spouses. Would you share information on your life as well? I was born in 46 and have 2 sisters and a brother. My dad, Ben's son passed away in 1996. His parents and sister as well are gone. Thank you for contacting me. Do you live in Toronto? I live in Canning, NS.
