MacGregor, George Stewart

Regimental Number: 1037987
Rank: Private (Cook)
Branch: Canadian Forestry Corps

George was born in Dunbartonshire, Scotland on October 18, 1871. He came to Canada before the war and was living in Strathcona, Alberta at the time of his enlistment in August of 1916. George served only in England, likely because of his very flat feet. It appears that he worked as a cook in the army. In January of 1919, he married Catherine Nielson. They came to Canada later that year and settled in the Spirit River area (28-77-6-W6; 23-78-5-W6). George died in the Veteran’s Hospital in Edmonton on March 21, 1959.
