He is now 84 years old. He never knew his father as Alvin left when he was 4. Alvin was never seen again by his Montreal family. Some says that he might have gone to Ottawa, other say that he was Irish or English and went back to his country. My grandfather always wanted to know more about his father , I would like to tell him more about him. Also, as the descendants of Alvin Hale, we would all like to know were we come from.
Any information or pictures would be most welcomed. If you have any details, I would be very
