This information is gleened from a database containing an index of aliens and citizens crossing into the United States from Canada through various ports of entry along the U.S.-Canadian border between 1895 and 1956.
The list is only 3 and they all appeard to have crossed at the same time and as can be seen, none of them were in the flush of youth.
Unfortunately little is known about the story behind this trip. If anyone has any further information, we would love to know more of this story.
