Branch: 1st Depot Battalion, Alberta Regiment

George was born in Ste. Anne des Monts, Quebec on July 25, 1896. He filed on SW 20-77-20-W5 in 1915, and was living in Donnelly when he was drafted in 1918. Because it was so near the end of the war, George only served in England. His brother Orelus was also drafted. Upon his return, he acquired additional land (SE 18-77-20-W5; SE 2-77-20-W5). George began a correspondence with Marie Emma Vallee, a woman from his hometown, in 1921. They were married in Ste. Anne, Quebec on May 3, 1922. George and Emma had nine children. In 1965 they sold the farm and retired to McLennan. George died on June 25, 1983.
