      George emigrated to the U.S. (Philadelphia) in about 1906 or 1907 (1920 & 1930 U.S. Census records have different immigration date). Pretty certain that he came through Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, but that port-arrival record still to be confirmed.

      Name: George Mc Intosh Houliston Birth Date: 25 Nov 1887 Residence: Delaware, Pennsylvania Birth: Edinburgh, Scotland Roll: WW2_2240438 Note regarding the images for the states of PA, MD, VT, and DE. These four states were scanned at the National Archives facility in such a way that the back of one person’s draft card appears on the same image as the front of the next individual. The result is that when you click to view the original image, you will see the correct front side of the draft card, but the back of the previous soldier’s card. Ancestry is aware of this problem, and is working quickly to correct this issue.
