Re: Peter Fidler born 1867

Hi Gary

Yesterday I thought about Frances being Nora's daughter rather than sister and a bell went off in my memory dep't. That and the fact I referred to William Fidler as (Alex?) confirms the onset of senility.

Peter Fidler born 1867

Hi Gary Your section on Peter Fidler born 1867 shows him dying in 1948 in the title line and the picture caption then dying in 1955 in the bottom line.

Re: Mapleton History

Gary: No mystery about my birthplace - my mother was staying with her family because my father had gone to England and Scotland late in '42 to get ready for a little beach party and fireworks show in June of '44 at a place called Juno in Normandy, followed by an extensive tour of France, Belgium, Ho...

Re: Mapleton History

We also spoke briefly in Edmonton in the early 70's. I was born in 1943 and went to Mapleton school...
