    Not sure you are interested in these background details but their father, Ernest Frederick McMann, was born in Victoria County, Ontario on October 19, 1883. He married their mother, Emma Violet Wilson (probably born in Manitoba in 1890), in North Cypress, Manitoba on November 2, 1910. He passed away in Vancouver, British Columbia on July 7, 1956 and she died in the Murrayville area, British Columbia on April 6, 1977.
