McGUIRE, Elmer

We believe that the M. McGuire on the Cenotaph in Brussels is Elmer McGuire who's parents John and Mary Ann lived in Belgrave. The family headstone located at the Brandon - Belgrave Cemetery has the name of Elmer McGuire etched on the stone.


This name appears on the Brussels Cenotaph as a casualty of the First World War. We have concluded from our research through the National Library and Archives of Canada and looking at all the possibilities of Hogan F. that this name should not be on the Cenotaph as having died in service to Canada. There is however the possibility that this individual served under the forces of the United Kingdom and we will research the service records under Hogan with the surname of Frank, Francis, Fred or Frederick.
