| I'm trying to find my Papa's younger brother William John McArthur/Coates...He's been missing since 1959/60 and it's time he came home.
The run down is that his child died in a house fire and the cops went after him (For no reason) he took off for Wainwright, Alberta and hasn't been heard from since.
I've been trying to find him for a few years now- mostly by writing every W.Mac/McArthur and Coates I can find on 411.ca.
If you have any information please let me know!
The pic is of my Papa in the last few years I'm told that they looked really similar as kids and maybe they still do.

Many times man lives and dies
Between his two eternities,
That of race and that of soul
And ancient Ireland knew it all.
" To a Scot, the past clings like sand to wet feet,
and is carried about as a burden.
The many ghosts are always a part of them, inescapable."
Hope, fear, false-joy, and trouble,
Are these four winds which daily toss this bubble,
His breath’s a vapour, and his life’s a span;
Tis glorious misery to be born a man.
~ from a Cornish gravestone
"Now I perceive the devil understands Welsh.”
"God defend me from that Welsh fairy,
Lest he transform me to a piece of cheese!”
