Narrative

Richard's birth was registered in Massachusetts, but like all of his siblings was also recorded as having been born in PEI, in the 1901 PEI census.

He must have been eager to serve in World War 1. He put his birthplace as PEI on the Canadian Attestation form (the volunteer, not the draft form) and then signed up in the US (saying he was natural born) as well. His mother, "Mrs. Jennie Farell" in Cambridge, was his contact.

He served mainly in Canada, but also oversea with the 42nd Btn. He was living with his father and his father's second family in the 1920 US census. Both he and his brother Everett were working as bakers.
