Query Text:

Im looking for information on a Charles Cooke born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 28 Apr 1931. His parents died when he was very young and he was sent to live with Aunts, there was some family conflict so he left their home around 1948 when he was only 14 or 15. He never showed up for his sister wedding in 1949. Someone in his family last spoke with him in Feb 1949 they recall he was working on a Oil Tanker or in the Navy, his sister has a picture of him in what she believes is a Navy uniform. This information has come from his sister who is older and has limited memory. I found a border crossing for him, on a border crossing I found dated 5 Sept 1948 his date of birth is shown as 6 Apr 1928 however it is believed by his sister who is still living that he was born in 1931 but it is possible that he changed the year of birth so he appeared older so he could go on ship. The ship had sailed to the USA to Ashtabula, Ohio and he was listed as a Great Lakes Seaman on the ship SS Saskadoc. Further research on the ship confirms that it was a freighter ship owed by N.M. Paterson & Sons. Last known address was 152 Beech Avenue, Toronto. He may have worked for Hydro and the Telephone Company in Vancouver and Winnipeg in or around 1955. We dont know what happen to Charles we dont know if he married, or had children he may have even moved to the USA. His sister would really like to know what happen to her brother if anyone has any suggestion or any information on Charles Cooke I would appreciate hearing from you. I have attached a picture of him.
