Biographical history

Alexander MacNaughton, a native of Springfield, Antigonish County was born Nov 14 1896, the son of John Cumming MacNaughton and Amelia MacPhie. A veteran of the first World War he had worked for a time prior to the first world war in the lumber camps of Kamloops BC. After the war, he returned to BC where he died in July of 1927.
