LEE CALGARY ca 1901 Thank you for the 1901 census information which shows TSC Lee (42)in Calgary. Family folklore says he migrated as a boy but lost his land gambling and returned to England where he died in the 1920s. His full name was Thomas Somerville Charteris Lee and I have only found this one reference. Although someone from Calgary contacted his brother in 1958. He could not decipher the writing and lost the letter before showing it to anyone else. This suggests that TSC Lee may have had a family still in Canada. Can anyone help? , Canada
