The Export of Blood, Brains and Bones

A Partial List of Our Young Men Who Have Gone to Better their Condition in Uncle Sam's Domain.

The Restrictionists tell us that is not the proper thing for us to export our surplus produce to the United States; that as loyal citizens we ought to deal exclusively with the Mother-land. Be that as it may, we are exporting to the States the very life's blood of this "Canada of ours", viz., our young men.

We are indebted to Mr. Jos. Hooper, for the following list of natives of this town and its immediate vicinity, who have left Port Hope and taken up their residence in the United States.

Why is this thus? We wait an answer.

* Note that 'do' refers to the same destination as the previous person in the list. Some names do not appear to have any definite location, ie .......Perhaps some of our Internet visitors may be able to 'fill in' these blank spaces. I would also welcome any further information or comments from descendents of any names on this list....e-mail Michael Stephenson:

New information sent in to me

I can give you information regarding Wilbert and Fred Nelson who are on your list. They both went to Iowa (Cherokee County). Fred moved on to North Dakota (Divide County) with his father-in-law and then moved to Roseburg, Oregon where he died in 1943. Much more information if anyone is interested. I'm searching for their parents families which is very difficult due to the very common names. Their father was John Nelson, their mother Phoebe Jane Wood. Janene Crawford, San Jose, CA US

Wilfred T. Ballagh may have gone to Dallas initially but he wound up in the little town of Nevada, Missouri, where he opened a very successfull drug store in the main town square. He prospered, married and built a large mansion. He also got into cattle and did well there too. His father Isaac Dorman Ballagh and wife moved to Appleton, Missouri, not far from Nevada, Missouri. The family is all buried in Nevada, Missouri. If you need more info, let me know. I have tons of info on their lives in Missouri. B.Hopper, Ottawa, Ontario (a Ballagh descendant)
