Trudeau , Francois Xavier Ignace “Frank”

Regimental Number: 101380
Rank: Private
Branch: 49th Battalion

Frank was born in Joliette, Quebec on July 31, 1877. In 1914, he filed on a homestead at SW 6-77-21-W5. Frank enlisted in the Canadian Army in September of 1915. In June of 1916, he was slightly wounded but remained on duty. Frank received a shrapnel wound to his right eye on June 11, 1917; not surprisingly, his vision was defective after this injury. He spent the rest of the war in England; it is uncertain in what capacity he served during this time. After the war, Frank returned to the South Peace and filed on a second quarter at NW 6-77-21-W5 in 1920. At some point after the war, he married Maria Rosanna Allain. Frank died on October 23, 1930.
