Moreland, Frederick B.

Regimental Number: 2503075
Rank: Corporal
Branch: Canadian Railway Troops

Frederick was born in Indiana on October 15, 1885. At the start of World War I he was in the American standing army. He was anxious to see active duty, so he deserted and crossed the border into Canada, where he enlisted in the Canadian Army at Winnipeg in October of 1917. After the war Frederick came to the DeBolt district and filed on several different land locations; however, since he was more interested in trapping, he never farmed or proved up his land. Frederick died out at his cabin on the Simonette Hill on June 8, 1940.
