bullet  General Notes:

Uncle Joe’s twin brother was Uncle Jim (James Francis Doyle), who came to Detroit when World War I broke out and joined the United States Army. Uncle Jim did not return to Canada after the war but chose to go west, settling in Omaha, Nebraska and opening a restaurant7. He must have excelled in the food business because he stayed in it until he retired. During World War II, he was an army cook stationed in Anchorage, Alaska.

James Doyle served in both World War I and II as a cook. He is on the right in the picture above.
This was taken during Christmas at an Army Base in Alaska during World War II.

In 1945, he moved to Seattle and then retired in Bellingham, Washington where he died on January 19th, 1984”. I never met Uncle Jim, but was told he was an out going person who loved the ladies (Just the opposite of his brother Uncle Joe). When Jeannie and I got married he sent us $100.00, which was a lot of money in 1967.

When Grandma and Grandpa Doyle sold the farm in Puslinch in 1938, James and his wife, Oliver, had their signatures witnessed in Omaha, but it is doubtful if there was any marriage ceremony. When he was 80 years old and asked if he had ever been married he replied, “No I was never married, but I fooled around a lot.”
