On this day in Toronto Canada Melville Daniel Smith was born. The first child of five born to my maternal grandparents Alice Margaret Cocklin and Melville Morrison Smith. Sadly I didn't know my Uncle very well even though for the first 34 years of my life we lived in the same town or just a few towns away from each other.
My Uncle came to United States sometime in the 1950's. In 1961 he became a US citizen, something I did not know until I found his naturalization record on Ancestry.com.

He was married to my Aunt Marge for over 50 years and together they raised 3 children,Barbara, Jack and Jimmy. He passed away on the 31st of January 2007 at the age of 80.
