Victor was born in Point Pelee, Ontario. He was one of six children born to “Frank” and “Addie”. We still need his mother’s cemetery name to link this large family together.

His parents divorced in Nov 1917 and the mother moved to Detroit. No more records were found for her after the 1930 census record.
