Carter Family

Soldier Robert G. Carter of the 7th Battalion CEF wrote to his brother Fred Carter in 1914, from the Valcartier military camp in Quebec, before he died overseas of spinal meningitis on 26 March, 1915. His sister, Janet Carter, later reached out to any soldier in the No.1 General Hospital B.E.F. in 1915, and received a response on behalf of Private J. Clements. She also received correspondence in 1918, from a former student, gunner R. Waring. Her life was celebrated in 1975, as a member of the Waterloo County Hall of Fame at Doon Pioneer Village.
