      Dear Judith
      Thankyou very much for your reply. I am grateful for your distributing my
      enquiry to other
      family historians. I look forward to hearing from them!

      What I do know is that an Uncle of my mother, Thomas Nuttall, emigrated to
      Canada in 1907 &
      settled initially in Hawarden, SK. He ran a drug store there until 1953. His
      daughter Marion married
      a Harvey Topham who worked for Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration
      (PFRA) & eventually
      retired to Calgary. Our family in UK were in contact with them until about
      1946 (when my mother
      died). I simply want to get in touch with Marion and/or her children Louise
      Rankin(?) and Lawrence
      Topham. Apparently, Lawrence worked as manager at the Lord Nelson Motel in
      Calgary in 1980 and
      so I contacted them to ask if they knew anything about his current
      whereabouts but they were unhelpful!

      With thanks, George Cardew


      Best wishes, George Cardew
