The above comments were provided by a website about the Hammond Packing Fire in Hammond Indiana ,1901. I would like to thank Chris Prahlow for helping me with my research and sending me down this path. Up until I read that post I had no inkling of how or why the Debolds had come into Canada. This sheds a little more light on their dilemma of the times. We all have to make choices of what we have to do with our lives, this is the truth, and we also have to take into account what those choices will be and how they will affect our families and loved ones. Michael Debold made such a choice, little did he know that upon moving to Canada, that his daughter would become a statistic in the great flu epidemic, but then again it may have happened in Chicago or Indiana for that matter .I believe that coming to Canada was for the best for all involved.
