Alexander Clarke Angus

I have come into possession of a coffin identification plate for Alexander Clarke Angus . The engraving indicates that he died December 27 . 1903 .
I have also discovered that his estate was probated at the surrogate court for Saskatchewan Judicial District of Moosomin in 1915. The delay is puzzling but i suspect that it had to do with the extended family,s move from Kipling Sk. to Willmar Sk.
