Bernice Leslie Driver was born in 1921, and the infant is assumed to be Bernice despite the name clearly providing for a Gladys, either a transcription error or Gladys was renamed Bernice.

A wedding certificate with Gladys, or a divorce certificate from Eunice, is not known.

The R.M. of Bayne remains a rural municipality near Humboldt, Saskatchewan. 2 Years later, Chrystal "Tiny" was born in Dana, Saskatchewan, also in the R.M. of Bayne.

Herbert Driver - Assigned Pay 2 (AP2)
Herbert Driver - Assigned Pay 2 (AP2)
The record is notable because it started December 31, 1917 and it makes the following references:

* a notation dated March 26, 1918 is written above the words that appear to read “authy S.B.” where to the left the words Eunice Driver and the word wife are scratched off and replaced by Mrs. Jane Driver and it is noted below her name as the Children’s Guardian. The address for Eunice is noted as 528 Avenue K North, Saskatoon, SK. The date of March 26, 1918 is interesting because it is 2 days before Herbert attends for treatment for gonnorhea while in Saskatoon on furlogh.

* the words Mrs. Eunice Driver amd wife are struck out and replaced under the words “Change of Address” to include Jane Driver and a notation dated June 8, 1918 includes Jane Driver’s address of 528 Avenue K North, Saskatoon, SK.

* the body of the message includes a notation for April that reads “Cancelled per change in assignee”.

Wedding Certificate - Lenore Driver
Wedding Certificate - Lenore Driver
Two points of interest in this document:

1) Lenore's age being 17. On the date of the marriage, January 18, 1935, Lenore was shy of her 15th birthday. Her age accords with the Census record of 1921 with her mother Eunice in Winnipeg, Manitoba as being 1 year old in 1920.

2) The name of her father Herbert Thomas Driver. Herbert had 3 children with Eunice before WWI. While in England, he met Gladys Killner. Herbert returned to Canada from the war in February/March 1919 and Gladys followed in October 1919. The two moved to British Columbia/Alberta with Herbert's three eldest kids from his marriage with Eunice and he and Gladys had three more. Lenore's conception date is the summer of 1919 which means, I say, the documents demonstrate he reconnected with his ex-wife while waiting for Gladys to move from England. Lenore's last name in the Census records are Galloway and I have been unable to find any records of her father being the purported Galloway.
