William Robert “Bill” Moore

William Robert “Bill” Moore (marked with “x”) with C Battery, Royal Canadian Horse Artillery (RCHA) unit. He was first husband of My paternal grandmother, Agnes Carney Falkner. They married in Port Arthur, Ontario, Canada in 1924 and moved to Detroit, Michigan, USA in 1929. Reasons for their break-up are unclear, but she formally divorced him in Detroit in 1935, claiming “desertion, non-support, and extreme cruelty.” It appears they were not in contact after 1930, because he petitioned for USA naturalization in Chicago (1938), listing Agnes as his wife, residing at “unknown, separated 1930.” #falknerjarrell #familyhistory #genealogy #genealogyphoto #antiquephotograph #family #vintagephotography #oldphotos #oldphoto #genealogyresearch #oldphotograph #savinghistory #findingroots #carneygenealogy #carney #canada #portarthur #ontario #thunderbay #thunderbayontario #detroit #rcha #canadianmilitaryhistory #military #canadianarmedforces #militaryphoto #moore #army #1920s #bandofbrothers
