According to his attestation papers dated January 31, 1916 at Burlington, Ernest Knox of Mimico Avenue, Mimico was born on November 4, 1895 in East Toronto, York County. He listed his mother Mabel Knox, Mimico Avenue, Mimico as his next of kin. He listed his occupation as painter and indicated that he had no previous military experience. He was 20 years and 3 months of age and 5 feet 10 inches in height. He had brown eyes, light brown hair and a fair complexion. He was a Presbyterian.
I wonder if Hugh Knox was his brother? Hugh listed his father as his next of kin but they all lived on Mimico Avenue.
