bullet  General Notes:

My great-grandfather was a fire boss at the Midland Mine in Drumheller. My mom says that Gramma and Grampa came to Canada in search of a better life. There was no intent for coal mining. However, research tells me that Drumheller would have been advertising in England for experienced miners in that period immediately after the war was over, with the incentive of free passage to Canada. I can't help but think that Grampa would have taken up one of those offers. It also just so happens that the year that they went to Canada in 1919, was the year of the Big Union strike in the coal mines in Canada. I don't know if there are any records to prove my theory, but regardless, Grampa went from being a coal miner in Arnold to a coal miner in Drumheller.
