Hi Robin. I just don't know.
Harry WAS single. In 1901 he was in Sydney working in the mines as an
electrician, Presbyterian, Irish. This one has him 25 (instead of 29) It
also has him born July 1886 instead of September 1882 and born Nova Scotia
instead of Prince Edward Island.
The place and occupation could be right. Could they muck it up that bad?
Maybe this is why we can't find him.
