George was the youngest child of six born to George and Martha “Annie” Moor in Winnipeg 26 October 1887.
In the 1916 Census of Canada, George is listed as a Labourer. In 1921 his occupation is “Driver”. The Henderson’s Directory listed him alternately as a “Teamster” (driver of a horse team) or a labourer.
Family lore is that George was a bit of a ne’er do well, possibly a gambler.
Certainly, after his father George’s death in 1920, George was a dutiful son and stayed on living with his mother until her death in 1926. Annie left the house to George.
