Hello Everyone.
I am trying to find out when Augustus Shallcross arrived in Canada.
What I do know.
Born 1883 in Throwley Kent (transcribed as Shallcroft) still here 1891/01 census.
Have him on 1920/30 American census and have border crossing documents from Canada to America. Documents mention the Virginian, tried Find my past not really one to match him. He settled in Houston Texas married had one daughter. Any help would be fantastic |bowdown|

Is he the Augustus W Shallcross?, there is a WW1 Draft Registration Card on A...y, residence Harris, Texas. I have never actually seen one of these so I wondered if they had date of arrival on them.

Hello Bumblebee
Yes that is him I have a copy of that and it gives the date of sept 1918. I just can't find him from 1901 till he appears on a list of alien passengers applying for admission to the U.S from the port of Niagara Falls but it does'nt give a date. Don't know how he got to Canada maybe he had a tardis.
Thanks for the help :D

Hi Kim,

You must have seen my thread before I deleted as I realised you already had the 1920/30 census.

Here he is in 1917 listed in Houston, Texas City Directory.
