My grand father was John Wesley Dando called Jack, as am I.
He moved from Ontario to Seattle Washington in 1898 after working his way across Canada as a telegrapher for the Canadian Pacific Railroad.
He married Olive Jo Crews in Trail BC abt 1897. They had five children, Wesley Crews (my father), Carter, Ruth, Jack, and Myrne.
I would love to hear more of the Canadian family history.
