Thank you to Nancy Jean (Kyles) Moisan, great-granddaughter of William Kyles and granddaughter of Albert Kyles, for providing the details below:
"William's son, Albert Kyles, emigrated to Canada with his family at the age of five, around 1924. Full details cannot be checked as the immigration records for 1924 were destroyed in a fire in Montreal.
Albert was an artist. Quite a few of of us in the family have some of my Grandfather's [Albert's] paintings that he did over the years. A lot were purchased by the T Eaton company an d also the 'Molson' family in Montreal.
