S.J. Maxwell is the son of Clara (Trage) Maxwell and David Maxwell.
His home was on Morningside Road, Fulford Harbour. His name was Stephen Eugene Maxwell, better known as Ty, as he was an avid ball player and Ty Cob was his favourite, thus he obtained the nickname Ty. His birthdate was September 22, 1910. He was called to go overseas and was shot down by "friendly fire" by the English who mistook his unit for the enemy when they were landing in France. He was featured at the Ganges Legion the year 1995 or 1996 by Ivan Mouat. There are three pictures in the "Multicultural" Barbara Lyngard collection, 2005013056 (hunting picture), 2005013075 (burial in France), and 2005013083 (his army picture, Stephen is in the second row from the front, on the very end, the right side when the picture is facing you. He was a logger, an avid hunter, and was very involved in sports, particularly baseball. He never married. He was my uncle, actually my favourite uncle.

Hope this helps
