I don't know if he married in UK or Canada but an Aunt used to write to him in Canada and said he was married with a family mostly boys.
Family "recollections" have it that Valentine was some type of engineer in England and drove the dynamo for the lighting of a circus travelling the Uk .
some think he married the circus owners daughter but I have not been able to prove this and have not been able to trace the "circus" .Can some one out there help me trace this man or his family please.
