History

Robert Livingstone was born in Staffa, Ontario on February 4, 1889. He served in World War One as a Private in the 8th Field Ambulance of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. In 1917, Robert was wounded from shell shrapnel during the Battle of Passchendaele, and was deemed medically unfit for service. He was discharged from the military in 1918 and shortly after, he met and married his first wife, Margaret Jane Miller (also of Staffa, Ontario). They moved to Hamilton, Ontario and resided at 235 Sherman Avenue South. Robert was a civil servant (department unknown), for the City of Hamilton and kept time sheets for road and sewer work employees.
