First time in 47 years

The August 7 1936 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained this brief article about a family reunion:


I have no idea why the article listed Mr. McMullan’s occupation as well as his address, but this made it possible for me to trace him in the Toronto city directories. The house at 108 Billings is listed under Charles Stuart, Mr. McMullan’s son-in-law, and Mr. McMullan appears in the 1937 and 1938 city directories at that address. His occupation is listed as assessment clerk for the Separate School Board.

In 1939, the family moved to 1216 Gerrard East. Mr. McMullan is now listed at that address, but no occupation is given in the listing. The family is still there in 1940, but he is no longer listed. I suppose that he might have travelled to New Orleans to stay with his sister, but I fear the worst.
