GANT vs Lethbridge Alberta brick wall

GANT vs Lethbridge Alberta brick wall

Classification: Query
Looking for any information about DAVID THOMAS (or David T.) GANT in Lethbridge, Alberta. He travelled from England to Montreal on the Empress of Britain, 22 Nov. 1913. From there he was to travel by CP Rail to Lethbridge, Alberta, to go "to brother 3 yrs in Canada". He was a seaman in England and his intended occupation in Canada was to be a fireman. Any information (before his marriage to Etta Maude Manning) about David T. Gant, b.1883 in England, or his brother about whom I know nothing, would be deeply appreciated.

I may be getting all excited for nothing, but the names of George Gant's children are very common names in my Gant family line. It certainly looks promising. thank you so much, agmaciaszek! You are a gem.

*Might* be! I'm going to put it in my shoebox after I study the info for clues. Thank you so much for another avenue to search! At least now I don't feel like I'm treading water. Yay!
