I need some help here, maybe someone can point me in the right direction to search.
I am trying to trace for a friend a, William Morris who I am told was killed at Vimy Ridge. I can find no information on this man. I have searched Ancestry, Cdn Archives, Cdn war graves registers, commonwealth war graves, looked up Algonquin Regiment and 48th Highlanders. The Regiments mostly give history of it, not names of people in them.
My friend is not positive which regiment William was with, he thinks the Algonquins as Wm lived in Mattawa which is near North Bay, at the time. I am not sure if William is his first name, he was called Billy but William might be a middle name maybe. Surely to goodness, if Billy was killed at Vimy Ridge, his name would be listed somewhere? I don't understand why Wm would not be in Ancestry so I could have his military papers to go by..
William Morris was born about 1896 in Nova Scotia his parents were Dennis Morris and Mary McDonald. He also had a brother Donald they called Dan, born abt 1900 in N.S. I have William (listed as Willy) in the 1901 census but he is not in 1911, so must be off working someplace.
I thought I might have found him on the Cdn war graves site, but wrong parents. Sigh it is getting quite frustrating. So any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
