Narrative

George Benjamin Brace went out West, to Tofield Alberta where he was a merchant. Edmonton paper, 1907: "Geo. Brace, of Fowler & Breen's hardware department, left this week for his old home, Summerside, P.E.I., to spend the winter there."

M. At St. James' Church Presbyterian Church, Charlottetown, Feb. 2, 1915, Miss Mabel H. Stewart, daughter of the late A. C. Stewart and of Mrs. Stewart of Georgetown, and Mr. George B. Brace, son of Mr. & Mrs. J. A. Brace, Summerside, Rev. T. F. Fullerton officiating. The bride, a graduate of nurse's training in the P.E.I. Hospital was "given away" by her brother, Allister. The groom has a retail business in Tofield, Alta., where the couple will live. (From Patriot. Feb. 3, 1915)

Summerside paper, from PEI Ancestry:
Mrs. L. R. Allen left on Monday, for Tofield, Atla., where she will visit her brother, Mr. George Brace, who recently was quite ill. (1922) Word was received in Summerside on Friday, that Mr. Geo. Brace, formerly of this town, had undergone a successful operation for appendicitis in Edmonton on Friday. (1922). The guardian newspaper had several social notes about George's visits to PEI.

One source said that George was the Mayor of Tofield, and in the history for that area he was named as a Councillor. There was one note in the Guardian where he was identified as Mayor.
