I am trying to trace whether there are any living descendants of Wallace Antill (1892 - 1916). Wallace was born in Leicester, England in 1892 and he emigrated from Liverpool, England to Halifax, Canada on 24 Mar 1910 on the CORSICAN. He married Arabella Alice Cleaver on 11 Sep 1912 in Elgin Co, ON. Arabella was born in England in 1890 and appears on the 1911 Canadian Census living in Malhide with her parents and siblings. Wallace enlisted in the Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force on 18 Sep 1915 but was killed at the Battle of the Somme on 18 Nov 1916.
They had two children born in Canada: John Cleaver Antill (b abt 1914) and Muriel Bertie Antill (b abt 1915). Muriel married Stanley J Armstrong abt Dec 1933 and John married Lillian Mabel Graham abt Dec 1941 in Aylmer, ON.
Any information on what became of Arabella (often known as alice) and her children will be welcomed.
