Branch: 1st Depot Battalion, Alberta Regiment; Canadian Forestry Corps
John was born in Russia on April 27, 1892. He was drafted in late 1917, at which time he was living in Alberta. Because he was drafted near the end of the war, John served only in England. A note on page 27 of his service file states in red ink – capitalized and underlined – that he must not proceed overseas. John married Isa; they had four sons. In 1928 he filed on NW 20-74-2-W6; the rest of the family moved up in 1930. John died in 1963 and was buried in the Teepee Creek Cemetery.
