Yesterday I was so excited. I finally found Grandpa Roy in the Canadian 1911 Census. I knew his father, James David Davis, died in 1906 in Idaho. Grandpa always said it was in 1906, the year of the San Francisco Earthquake.
After his father died, his mother, Melissa Jane Avery Davis, married Charles Cole and they moved to Canada. Grandpa's history did not say where he was in Canada.
The following information is from http://www.ancestry.com/:
The census record shows the following:
Charles Cole - head
Melissa - wife
William Cole - son
Ethel Davis - step daughter
Rees Davis - step son
Howard Cole - son
Franklin Davis - step son
James Cole - son
They were living in McLeod, Alberta, Canada. McLeod is North of Calgary, Canada.
