Remembering World War I Yarmouth Connections
Sidney J. Jeffery was born in East Kemptville, Yarmouth Co., N.S., on March 15, 1893, the son of James and Lillian Alice (Crowell) Jeffery. He had three brothers, one of whom was Amos Jeffery with the 26th Battalion, killed in action March 7, 1916. His father had died and his mother remarried Abner Forbes. There were two boys from the second marriage and two step- sisters. Sidney left Kemptville sometime around 1911 and was living in New Brunswick. His mother, Mrs. Abner Forbes received word in late June 1916 that Sidney had been killed in action. He had been living in New Brunswick when last heard from five years earlier. It is believed that he was with the 26th Battalion; however, no records are available for a “Sidney J. Jeffery” with Library and Archives Canada, Commonwealth War Graves Commission, or Veteran Affairs Canada. It has not been possible to find any record of an Attestation paper. He is commemorated on the Yarmouth Monument. Source: “A Monument Speaks” A Thurston; 1989 (p 225)
