The facts as presented: An Ontario provincial birth registration showed that a boy was born near Brockville, Leeds & Grenville County, Ontario, in mid-Feb 1902. His mother and father were identified by name. But, all traces of the boy and his parents between 1902 and 1921, when the boy was enumerated within an older couple's household many miles away, were unknown. The "boy's" life after 1921 was well documented. When the boy married in the home of the older couple on Amherst Island in the 1930s, he gave his mother's full name as something different than his birth registration showed.
The challenge: Could anything more be discovered about the boy's life between 1902 and 1921, and, could any facts be unearthed about either of the boy's parents?
