Tribute to the British-Canadian War Orphans of WWII
After WWII, may British Orphans were sent to Canada to work on the farms.
I had the honor of meeting three of these orphans who were residents at a nursing home that I worked at in the 1980s.
These three residents were sent to Hasting's County after WWII, lived and worked on farms near and around my father's ancestors farms, who were all farmers from south of Madoc and Tweed, Ontario.
These three sweet residents were Johnny Waite, Sissy Orford, and Eleanor Copeland.
They often told me about how difficult their lives had been.
