The Tolway children attended school at Preston Lake, Mary died in 1929 and is buried in the Hay Cemetery along with some of her Tolway cousins who had all contracted scarlet fever.

On April 1, 1943 he joined up as a NRMA Soldier (National Resources Mobilization Act which meant he joined the military but is to remain in Canada) during WWII.
